Well, it all started while I was walking in the Spirit. During a time of deep listening to the Lord, I inquired of the Lord how He saw me. Immediately I was sitting atop a snowy peak with Jesus looking out on many other snowy peaks surrounded by clouds – it was beautiful and peaceful. I looked at Him and asked Him how He saw me. Before I knew it, we were in the Throne room, and He pulled out a large, rimmed abalone bowl, and in the bowl were many pearls of all colors, sizes, and lustre – one pink, one black, one white, one yellow, and then I see Him reaching toward one that was truly like a fire opal, and He confirms that this one is me.
Just as His fingers picked up the “fire” pearl, it transformed from a solid to a starburst of brilliant multi-colored light that shone so brightly that it nearly blinded me. My jaw dropped in amazement – “Lord, are you sure You have the right one?” I found it hard to believe myself as this brilliant starburst of light that reached far and wide and filled every space. The Lord replied, “As a pearl, you are beautiful to Me, but the moment you allow Me to pick you up, My Light fills you and you are much more.”
As I came back to my surroundings with my jaw still open in disbelief, I realized that in taking this step forward as a missionary, I am allowing His Light to fill me up and “greater works than these” I will do – truly my faith is being stretched and tested at just the thought of what He showed me, let alone doing. I thank the Lord for granting me this vision; I treasure it! I thank the Lord for increasing my faith and my capacity to keep my eyes on Him.
