As I’ve been going through this experience, I have received amazing support from my friends and family. I hope that all of you reading my blog understand just how much you all mean to me, but this blog post is going to mention one person in particular. And luckily, he gave me permission to use his name and to write about how he fits into this next step of my journey.
Isaac Myers is a very dear friend of ours. He and my husband went to the Catch the Fire School of Ministry together and now he is back in the UK completing his schooling to become a doctor. Isaac is incredibly gifted in many things, especially in hearing from God and when it comes to interpreting dreams. I sent him a Facebook message as soon as we had found out that the doctors believed I had cancer. And being the utterly compassionate and amazing man he is, he writes back within a day and says that he is going to go on a four day fast for me and will pray and seek God on my behalf. I was brought to tears as I read his message. It meant so much to me to know that he was willing to make that sacrifice for me. WOW. He said he wanted to wait until the end of the week to Skype so he can really hear from God first.
On what I believe would have been the fourth and final day of his fast, I had this crazy dream about Isaac and it seemed utterly chaotic. Not even sure what was going on, but I knew it wasn’t a happy feel-good dream. The thing I remember the most is that there was a jar of dead bees just before I woke up. Huh?!? Not sure what that was about so I just shoved it to the back of my mind. But I include it here because it has relevance a few weeks later and I will talk about it in a later blog post.
When we finally did get to connect with Isaac he shared with Jason and I what God had spoken to him. God had in fact given Isaac a vision and then gave him the interpretation of that vision as well a few days later. As Acts 2:17 so clearly tells us, this is one of the ways God will speak to His children:
17 ‘And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God,
That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh;
Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
Your young men shall see visions,
Your old men shall dream dreams.
So, yay, God was speaking to Isaac on my behalf through vision. Here is what Isaac received from God in his words:
The vision that I had was …
I saw a large, desolate, flat wilderness-like valley where the ground was so dry that huge cracks ran all over the landscape. There was absolutely no life in the whole place except for one very tall tree right in the middle. the tree was colossal and seemed to be in perfect health, strength and shape. God told me that the tree is you. Then the roots of the tree began to grow outwards and the cracks in the dry ground were perfect channels for the roots to grow outward very quickly, easily and effectively. The lord reminded me of the verse ‘blood of the Lamb and word of the testimony’ and I felt him say that you sharing your testimony is very powerful because it both shows that you are using the attacks of the enemy and allows you to even more so use the arrows of the enemy against him; when he attacks you he’s actually carved out a way for you to see triumph with the very mechanisms that he thought would cause your downfall!!
It was so much fun hearing Isaac share this with me because my jaw was hanging wide open. Isaac even said, that’s how you know there’s a God when He gave me and Isaac the same scripture after I had shared my Revelation 12 news. We just laughed at the funness of God. The fact that this healthy tree was in the wilderness was just even more confirmation of what God had showed me through Rev. 12. So cool. Talk about a spiritual maturing quickly. God has a place for me in the wilderness where He is raising me up to be a spiritual warrior and quickly. My roots are being planted very deep in good faithful soil by what the devil is intending for harm.
By now I’m feeling that my faith is incredibly high and I am believing for a full healing and more babies and I thinking I am pleasing to Him. Yeehaw! And Hebrews 11:6 tells us that:
6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
