At the start of this year, I was asking God for clearer vision to know the direction and plans He has for me. I believe He sent me His answer a few days later.
On January 12, 2020, I received a dream in which I was standing in a forest with lots of big trees all around me. Suddenly, I saw something coming straight down from the sky very fast. I thought it might be a large bird but I couldn’t tell because it was moving so fast it looked like a white streak and was quickly hidden behind the tree tops.
As soon as it went into the trees, I heard quite a commotion among the other birds and creatures, but still the trees were blocking my view so I was not able to see what it was. I was fascinated by this so my eyes were gazing into that area when suddenly I caught a glimpse of it flying fast through the trees. I saw just enough to know it was a bald eagle.
A few moments later, I saw it again as it landed on a branch up high in a large tree so I was able to get a better look at it and knew for sure it was a bald eagle, but still my view was partially blocked.
Then it flew down to where I was and landed on the other side of a wooden game table that was in front of me there in the woods. He just stood there, keeping his distance and cautiously watching me, like he wasn’t sure whether or not it was safe for him to come any closer.
Then I realized my wife was standing by my side and we were both admiring this amazing creature. We wanted to let him know he could trust us so we began speaking to him and praising him. Then he started feeling safe with us so he warmed up to us and walked across the table and lowered his head so we could come closer to him and cuddle with him, so we all huddled together and we were loving on him.
Then I understood the game table was there so we could play a game with him and he had come to us to instruct us how to play. I knew he was very familiar with this game and had played it many times before, but we were just beginners and barely even knew anything about it. We were about to begin playing when the dream ended.
Lana Vawser’s new post yesterday, “The Commissioning of the Eagles Will Take Place from the Upper Room,” confirmed to me that my dream was not just for me personally, but was showing what is now happening on a grand scale among many faithful ones everywhere, those who have persevered to enter their new assignments.
I believe the fast white streak that I saw coming down from the sky shows our new assignments are now coming down from heaven. Even though the eagle was sent to me and even though I was trying hard to see what it was, my vision was so obstructed, I was unable to even recognize it at first. I believe this part of the dream is now being fulfilled as we are trying to see our new assignments more clearly, but there are trees blocking our view, so we’re having to persevere, pressing to see more. Just like I did in the dream, as we continue looking, we suddenly get a clearer glimpse that gives us new insights and confirms things we thought but weren’t sure about before.
Just like I was doing in the dream when I was intently looking into the trees to see more, I have been asking God to show me more about the eagle. They’re known for their keen eyesight, so I believe the eagle represents the clear vision God wants to impart to us regarding our new assignments. As Lana’s article stated, that clear vision is only found in the upper room as we spend time with the Lord.
I believe the progression of events in my dream shows the progression of events now unfolding as God is now releasing from heaven His vision for our new assignments. Even after the eagle came down to where we were, there was a brief delay as he had to be sure he could trust us before he was willing to draw closer. He only warmed up to us after we began expressing our adoration and praises to him. Only after we cuddled up to him did he begin to teach us how to play the game. I believe this sequence confirms what Lana Vawser stated, “…it requires MUCH prayer and fasting and WAITING/LINGERING with the Lord.”
God wants to give us the eyes of the eagle, clear vision to see His plans for us, but first we must do our part by giving Him our praises and drawing closer to Him, cuddling with Him, in no hurry to leave, lingering with Him. I believe the dream shows when we do that, He will begin to instruct us how to play the game, how to see His plans more clearly and walk in them. We have so much to learn about these things because our vision has been obstructed.
I got a good laugh about this because the dream shows I’m still just trying to get a better glimpse of the eagle and haven’t even started learning to play the game yet. After all these years, I haven’t even come out of the starting blocks and still have a lot to learn before I can. It reminded me of a word God gave to Kenneth Hagin many years ago, telling him, “Most Christians live their whole life without ever even entering the first phase of the plan that I have for them.”
Even so, I believe God is giving us an opportunity to gain clear vision like an eagle so we can see His plans and fulfill everything He wants us to do.
