Last night I had a dream where the Lord was sending His word into the ears of those who have felt forgotten, those who have felt overlooked, those who seem to be in a place of feeling washed up and finished with. Those that feel like they are too old and they have passed the ‘use by’ date, like Sarah, for the promises of God to be fulfilled in their lives.
I see there is a place where many are, where many have resigned themselves to the fact that the season for those promises to be fulfilled in their lives has come and gone. They feel the dream and desire that once laid in their heart has been overlooked and in turn feel they are forgotten by God. But the Lord would want to encourage these ones, HE HAS NOT FORGOTTEN YOU!!
“But Zion said, The Lord has forsaken me, and my Lord has forgotten me. Can a woman forget her nursing child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? Yes, they may forget, yet I WILL NOT FORGET YOU!” (Isaiah 49:14-15, my emphasis added)
Is Anything Too Hard for the Lord?
The Lord is going to the forgotten places and sending His word, as He did to Abraham in Genesis 18:14 and He is saying,
“IS ANYTHING TOO HARD FOR THE LORD? At the appointed time, when the season comes around, I will return to you and Sarah shall have borne a son.”
To some, it might almost seem “laughable” for those promises to be fulfilled in this late hour. Just as Sarah laughed at the thought of God fulfilling the promise in her out of date body, BUT GOD is breathing resurrection life into this forgotten place, and causing a reconnecting of the heart to the dream that He once breathed in seasons gone past. As the Lord came again to Abraham in Genesis 18, breathing the original promise once again, fulfilment of that promise manifested in that season.
The Forgotten Will Be Forgotten No More
Many have found themselves in this forgotten place due to previously being overlooked in opportunities and promotions that have been unfairly usurped by others. Many have found themselves in this forgotten place simply because the length of their season has been so long, they have resigned themselves to the fact that this is their “lot” in life, BUT GOD is BREATHING ON THE BARREN WOMBS AND THE GRAVEYARD TOMBS and resurrecting those things that have been forgotten, unnoticed and overlooked. THE LORD SAYS, “Though men may have forgotten or overlooked you, I HAVE NOT FORGOTTEN YOU!”
This morning as I awoke from the dream, I was asking the Lord regarding it and I was reminded of a sentence President Donald Trump said in his victory speech on the night of the 2016 United States presidential election. As an Australian listening, I was alerted to one of the lines in his speech that sounded like it was amplified louder than anything else that was said. It was in reference to the returned veterans. In the moment I heard his statement, the Holy Spirit said so loud to me, “This is a PROPHETIC STATEMENT from My heart for this season.”
President Trump said, “THE FORGOTTEN WILL BE FORGOTTEN NO MORE!” It rang in my ears for days following and now once again it resounds in my heart as the Lord is “going to the forgotten”.
It’s About Time!!!
In my dream, the Lord was declaring over a lady who was residing in this forgotten place. He was calling forth a promise she had held onto her whole life, but it had never manifested. I went to her after she received the word and I asked her what was her word. When she told me, I shouted, “ITS ABOUT TIME!!”
There was a sense that she had given up on this promise of God because of what appeared to be a delay in the fulfillment. There was a sense that she had just settled, thinking maybe it wasn’t a “God” promise because it hadn’t manifested in the season of her prime opportunity. But God has NOT FORGOTTEN, and was determined and intentional in speaking to that forgotten place and pulling out the destiny, dream and God-given purpose.
I hear, “ITS ABOUT TIME” resounding far and wide for those who have waited long, long seasons for the fulfillment of God’s spoken promises.
Don’t Lose Your Keys
In the dream, I saw two sets of keys, one for the vehicle for life and the other for the vehicle of dreams. In this forgotten place where people were residing, these keys were being lost, then found, then as soon as they were found they were lost again. I saw the keys to the dream needed to be attached to the key ring of the vehicle for life. By attaching the two together, they would be harder to lose.
Keys speak of authority, access and opportunity. In the forgotten place, it is easy to lose sight of life and the vision and how these two connect. The Bible says, “Without a vision, My people perish.” (Proverbs 29:18) That literally means without prophetic vision we lose self-control and cast off restraint. In the forgotten place, we can lose self-control in being diligent with keeping our dreams and vision before us. We can become negligent, getting distracted with other things, and lose sight of the keys of authority that give us access and opportunity to our dreams. We can pick it up, then forget about it and lose sight of it, then pick it up, then lose sight of it. In the forgotten place, the dream can wane and the need for caring can become insignificant because it can feel as though, “What does it matter anyway?”
We get distracted and busy with other things and we can miss the opportunities and access points to the dream becoming a reality. The Lord is releasing a strategy right now to not lose your keys, so you can drive your life out of the forgotten place.
Heaven’s Strategy – It’s a Mary Season
The Lord is saying, “Connect the dream keys back on your keyring of life. May the two become one and be diligent in keeping it safe.”
As the Lord addressed Martha (Luke 10:38-42), for being concerned and worried with MANY things, the Lord is saying in this season, “Choose the good portion and sit at My feet. Hear the word that I am delivering right now because it is the Word that is resurrecting your promise.”
The Lord is intentional in this hour and He is “going there,” like in John 11:11, to the dead forgotten place, and resurrecting the dream and purpose of His people’s lives.
Sit at the Master’s feet and receive the word that is breathing life into the forgotten place and pulling out the destiny, dream and purpose of God in your life. Don’t get caught up with this and that, with the fundamentals of this and that, how to make this happen or that happen. But sit still in the presence of the Master, “hear” His word, and let His word call those forgotten dreams to be a reality. Let His word call forth to your attention once again, to the dreams that you have given up on. Let His word reconnect those dream keys back to your key ring of life, so the two may become one and your dreams will manifest in your life!
