As I was praying I saw a vision from one of my favorite movies “It’s a Wonderful Life” the part when George Bailey says “You want the moon I will lasso it for you and bring it down.” The Lord showed me that George like many of us early in life had Huge dreams and goals for himself, in his youth. Well as life goes one thing after another happened to old George and he becomes more and more “settled” in a New way of life. In other words, he was forced to settle for what life had handed him and tried to make the best of it.
The Lord was showing me that most of us feel that in some ways life’s twists and turns had landed us in situations that we could not negate our responsibilities. So we put those Big dreams on the shelf to collect dust, thinking one day we could pull them down and dust the off, but it never happened. The Lord says I am rejuvenating you, I am revitalizing you to accomplish More than you had hoped for, because those dream were from Me.

The Lord is saying had the enemy known all that would have been accomplished through the work of the cross that he would have thought twice before hanging the Lord, on that tree, that faithful day. The enemy was celebrating on Friday and even on Saturday for he thought that he had won the war. BUT SUNDAY is Coming when the Lord rises from that grave, and in all of His Glory and Splendor. The enemy could not stop what happened that day 2000 years ago, and he can’t stop what the Lord is doing for us in this very day either. The Lord was rejuvenated and revitalized in the twinkling of an eye. He is showing me this is the same manner that He is going to do this, for us. Those dreams that were “lost” so very long ago, the Lord is digging those things up from the grave, for those desires from Him are NOT DEAD they were just sleeping, until the Lord calls for them to wake up and stand at attention at the forefront of our lives.
The Lord is waking us up to the calling He has placed in our lives. He is rousing us from our sleep, and calling forth those Destinies. The Lord is wiping the sleep from our eyes and giving us eyes to see things we have never before seen. He is rejuvenating and revitalizing us for the work we must do for Him. He is giving us back the strength and dreams of our youth and setting us back on the path of righteousness, for the sake of the Cross. He is declaring Isaiah 61 over our lives. Telling us what is it that you desire, the Moon? I will throw a lasso around it and bring it down to you, because I love you.
Psalm 138:7 (NKJV)
Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me;
You will stretch out Your hand
Against the wrath of my enemies,
And Your right hand will save me.
