Like those who dream
Psalm 126:1-6 (AMP)
When the Lord brought back the captives [who returned] to Zion, we were like those who dream [it seemed so unreal]. Then were our mouths filled with laughter, and our tongues with singing. Then they said among the nations, The Lord has done great things for them. The Lord has done great things for us! We are glad! Turn to freedom our captivity and restore our fortunes, O Lord, as the streams in the South (the Negeb) [are restored by the torrents]. They who sow in tears shall reap in joy and singing. He who goes forth bearing seed and weeping [at needing his precious supply of grain for sowing] shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him. Does what you’re believing for feel at times like a dream, so unreal and so glorious that if God were to fulfil it, you would be completely overwhelmed yet so full of gratitude toward Him? A ‘pinching yourself’ moment?
Well that’s the type of dream God is searching to fulfil. He desperately wants to complete what He has promised for you and is longing to bless you. You may feel like you have been exiled to a foreign land but the exiles are coming home.
He is not only going to bring this dream to pass but fill you with laughter and singing as well!
You might look around and not feel like laughing and singing just yet, but you will. Those seeds you have sown in the hard times have not gone unnoticed. That precious seed is so valuable because of the difficulty and struggle required to plant it.
You are about to reap a glorious harvest that will turn your weeping into rejoicing and singing. You will surely proclaim “The Lord has done great things for me!”
