As I was praying the other day, I saw a person stuck in a hallway with many doors in it, but all of the doors were sealed shut. This person felt so alone and at first she was frantic thinking I am STUCK in this hallway all of these doors and none of them will open. She was climbing the walls, frantic kicking the doors and screaming. There were other times that she would sit on the floor of the hallway and just cry. Her thoughts were that she had been left here in this place all alone, forgotten about, and abandoned.
The longer that she stayed in the hallway a mysterious thing started to happen. The Lord started speaking unto her heart wooing her softly and pulling her closer to Him and the sound of His voice. The Lord would speak sweet words into her ears and tell her how beautiful she was and how much He loved her. He was drawing her into His love, she had been so hurt and broken that no one could console her, except the love of her Father. He was so gentle with her, He worked with in her boundaries until she could understand that there was so much more to the call that the Lord had upon her life. It was beyond her and the life she lived for the Lord had made her a light that the enemy had tried to extinguish.
He showed me this girl was learning how to love again. Not with a cheap love that the world has to offer, but with an agape, unconditional kind of love that can only come from the Lord. He was causing life to come back over her, refreshing her soul, and giving her back the fire of the Lord. The Lord spoke to her softly and slowly, and explained “I have created you with a deep compassion for those that hurt, that you will cause healing to many others, for this is the gift I have placed in you. The enemy tried to crush you because he knew if you ever got free of the bondage that you would wreak havoc in his camps of confusion.
As the girl was in a quiet contentment, singing praises to the Lord that had given to her a new identity, out of no where she heard the familiar sound of a dead bolt unlocking. Then there was a strong gust of wind of the spirit and all of the doors blew open. The Lord showed her, see now there are many doors to choose from, only one of the doors is to your destiny, however, take my hand and I will lead you to the RIGHT door.
As she walked into the door it was MORE than she ever expected. I can only describe it as looking like something off of the Wizard of Oz. She knew the Lord had blessed her more abundantly than she could have ever dreamed to ask for. And the Lord delighted in giving it to her because she was HIS Daughter, HIS Beloved.
He explained at this moment to His daughter that He had to heal the damage done to her heart before allowing her to move forward into her destiny or it would have been a weight that she could not have managed to bear. He told her as she got quiet in her spirit that He could repair damage that the enemy had done to her. He could fill her with His strength and fortitude to follow through with the dreams He had for her. This was His Gift, that she was in the hallway for so long because if she had entered into her destiny any time before she did, the enemy would have tried to plunder the good given to her. The Lord explained to her that now she was a fortified city, built on the Rock of Him, and that no one could ever take the land away from her.
2 Corinthians 9:8 (NKJV)
And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.
