I had a dream about a week and a half ago where I felt like I was supposed to set some people free. Their hands were tied with thick ropes, and I wanted to cut them loose, but I didn't have a knife. So, I started yelling and beating my fist on the floor where they were tied. I felt like if I said the right words and spoke them in gaith, that the people would be freed.
In discussing this with our home group on Tuesday evening, I feel like this dream was about what the Lord is calling me to. Clara said that she felt like the calling was related to missions. On Wednesday night, Brandi and I discussed this dream and missional calling with Aaron and Torrey. I feel the Lord stirring us for something.
This morning, I was impreseed with Prov 31:8-9, and I immediately thought of the dream and conversations.
Proverbs 31:8-9 NIV
Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.
Heavenly Father, thank you for your faithfulness in speaking to us and leading us. May I be faithful in listening and following in obedience. Lord, I believe that you are calling us to something about speaking up for the voiceless and setting captives free, and I trust you to continue to reveal your desire according to your timing. I love you, and I want to pursue you with joy. Holy Spirit, fill us more. I pray in the name of Jesus.
