A Dream. A Promise?

Last night I had a dream. I drempt of being with other women at a table, intently looking at the Bible. We were reviewing verses one-by-one, beginning with Isaiah 54:1. In the dream, I did not know what this chapter was about. I waited until morning to find out:

Sing, O barren, thou that didst not bear; break forth into singing, and cry aloud, thou that didst not travail with child; for more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife, saith the Lord.

Isaiah 54 is rich with promise and hope. The next verse,

Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes.

This is the week I am hoping to find the courage to reach out to other Christian ministries to tell them about A Cup of Devotion. It has been over a year since the Lord placed this vision in my heart. Through it all, the overwhelming desire has been to get His Word out and into the hands and hearts of God’s children so they may know the peace that can only be found in Him.

Further on in verse 13, God says,

And all thy children shall be taught of the Lord; and great shall be the peace of thy children.

Who are thy children? That is you and me. We who are taught of the Lord shall know great peace. Oh, that our souls would hunger for God’s Word. We are living in a broken world, a world where peace is rare and faith is fragile. Yet, when we take time to build a relationship with our Lord, faith increases and peace results.

When reading this chapter, it was as though I almost heard the Lord saying it to me. He was so close, His voice gentle, His words true, His eyes promising. Oh, how I love Jesus! I love the waterfall blessings He pours out from time-to-time.

This was a dream. Is it a promise for A Cup of Devotion? I do not know. But I do know that God’s Word is true and that He does promise that when thy children are taught of the Lord they shall know great peace.

May your day be filled with the hope of God found in Isaiah 54.
