What does one do with a statement such as this? Automatically my mind would jump to a four year old child drawing blue mountains for this cannot be a reality, right? There’s no way that this type of question would be anything more than a hypothetical. Well, blue mountains is what initiated my investigative abilities during the week of intense prayer and inquiring of the Lord for direction in the next step of the word, “Go!”.
Jeremiah had the day before told me of his conversation with his mentor about a different way of seeking the Lord for direction, by picturing yourself in the Throne Room of Heaven and to wait and see what happens. He had shared about his experience in the Throne Room in doing this exercise. I too have done this type of Christian imagination before and decided that I would give it a try since he received so much during his experience.
In my prayer time the following morning, this is what took place:
God came and was sitting on His throne as I knelt before Him. Then Jesus came, smiled, hugged me, then walked with me. I asked Him what we were supposed to do and He said, “Follow Me”. I asked what that meant and He just laughed and put His arm around me. When I turned away from His face and looked ahead, we were walking on grass barefooted, and before us were beautiful green and blue mountains. I asked Him what it meant and had a sense that I would be there. He responded with “What do you think it means?” I turned to Him and He was now wearing hiking boots, a tan button up short sleeve shirt, and tan shorts. Then we were in a room with nothing but a table and a map with a light on it. I asked Him when He wants us to go and He said “With haste!” I asked where and He said “I have given you the nations as your inheritance, there does not have to be a specific place. Just go!” I asked Him if He could give us a direction, He looked at the map and it was as if the east nations were on fire. He reminded me of Luke 12:49, “I have come to set the world on fire, though I wish it were already burning.” He told me not to fear, He would be with us!!!
Once the vision ended, I felt like I got nothing. It was a struggle to stay in that place. I couldn’t remember anything, but knew I needed to write it down and in looking at the clock, I had been in this place with Jesus for an hour. I began writing and when I finished, I had this whole vision down on paper and could not make sense of most of it. I dwelt on it throughout the day and decided to review it. The green and blue mountains stuck out so I decided to google mountains in Norway, for God had confirmed with me that we are to go there in October, hoping perhaps I would see an image of the mountains exactly like the ones I saw. No such luck. I continued this for some other places we had added to the prayer list and still found nothing. I went back to the notes and realized how weird it was that Jesus was dressed in those clothes and thought He looked like Steve Irwin. So in googling Steve and mountains, an icon popped up saying, “Where on earth are the Blue Mountains?” It turns out that there is an actual Blue Mountain National Park in Australia. Jeremiah has a friend there so I asked him where he lived. His friend lives in Byron Bay on the coast of New South Wales, in the same province and not far from the Blue Mountains.
What a vision! God was moving even when I didn’t feel like it and was depositing direction where there seemed to be none. He could’ve just told me where He wanted us to go and we would be obedient, but He wanted to strengthen my faith and I think make it fun by the adventure of it all.
Be encouraged to know that in seeking Father about anything, He is always listening and He is fun! He isn’t some boring guy sitting in Heaven making you wait, He is waiting for the right timing and the right way to give it so that He gets all of the glory! All glory, honor, power is His, Amen! Keep seeking and keep asking! He is faithful! Matthew 7:7-8, ”Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.”
