From Weary Efforts to a New Day Dawning – Dream Part 1
“In my dream, the Lord caught me up above the USA, and I heard His voice say, ‘Look and consider well what you see.’ As I began to gaze upon the land below, I saw many revival movements blazing trails through unchartered territory, cutting trees, clearing land, and establishing centers. They were naming the moves of God and establishing their cultures in the centers. I could hear the voices of the leaders speaking of accomplishments, and how they were going a way no one had ever been. They spoke of how they had been misunderstood and had to pull away from all that was already established. As I watched their efforts, many became weary and dropped out of the process of establishing. Some centers that had once blazed with bright light began to dim. Soon, I heard painful moans of how they were misunderstood. They hurt severely, anguished by being misunderstood. At this, my heart was troubled. From my position in this dream, facing east, I could see the rising of the sun and a new day beginning. The sun was rich, bright and drawing since I love a good daybreak. For me, it represents another day to accomplish great things for Father God.” (Clay Nash)1
“For from the rising of the sun to its setting my name will be great among the nations, and in every place incense will be offered to my name, and a pure offering. For my name will be great among the nations, says the Lord of hosts.” (Malachi 1:11; ESV)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
Thank the Lord for those He has raised up in every prior generation, who kept the fires burning and proclaimed the Gospel at great cost to themselves.
Pray for current leaders in the Body of Christ that they would stay Christ-focused and not let their eyes turn to examine their own Kingdom-building work. Proclaim over them, “Eyes on Christ!”
Pray that leaders would not grow weary in well-doing.
Pray for a unity of the moves of God, between generations and between streams in the Body of Christ, as all are needed!
Pray for at least one leader in the Body of Christ today. Call or write them and tell them you are praying that they will fix their eyes on Jesus, the author and finisher of their faith, and asking the Lord that they would not grow weary in well doing.
A prayer you can pray:
“Please Lord, give the seasoned fathers and mothers favor and influence—those who have paid a great price to build what You had them build and gained the wisdom on (in how to bridge this gap between what we are currently doing and what we need to do). Give leaders ‘position and authority’ who can unite us into what can become the movement of movements in our nation!”1 May the Name of Jesus be lifted high by Your leaders, and may the leaders be refreshed as they exalt that wonderful Name above every Name—Jesus! Amen.
We decree that our Christian leadership would keep focused on Christ, make great the Name of Jesus in all they do, and be refreshed in their service to Him!
