Had a significant dream on our first day in South Africa. In this dream we were rushing to catch a plane. This plane was very costly- the ticket was £1,000 each. We were running, but our bags were slowing us down. We had to make a decision. Leave the bags, run and catch the plane, or stick with the bags and miss the place.
We made our decision and dropped the bags and ran.
One of the guys in the dream said “My new beginning starts today!”.
I knew in the dream, that one decision had changed everything. The flight, the direction, the timing was all new, a brand new unpredictable schedule. We were now on a new calendar. I woke full of the Spirit and joy.
I believe there is a challenge right now going out to leave even the best things from the past season. The baggage we had with us wasn’t rubbish stuff, it was the stuff we really liked and really wanted to take with us. But taking it with us meant trading in the new future.
I think God is offering something to us over these years ahead that is going to transcend the ordinary, and bring us into a brand new era. What that looks like heaven knows. But we have hints and clues, hidden in history, hidden in dreams and visions.
It’s like what happened to Neo in the incredibly prophetic MATRIX movie. He was offered a choice- blur or red pill. One would open his eyes to the true world the other would put him back into the dream world.
We have a powerful choice. Nobody can force you. Only you can decide. That choice will change everything. There can be no turning back.
Embracing the Future now. JA
