At the time of the dream I had been going through a difficult time in ministry. Although the group I was leading was growing and flourishing, there was someone causing chaos, and using their authority to distract and bring confusion. It would not be long the Lord would move me on in ministry elsewhere.
I have always said if you begin to see the pot being stirred, LISTEN, the Lord is probably getting ready to move you. It makes sense if we are comfortable where we are, for most of us, we would not move to where God wants to take us next. We become comfortable and happy in the area, and we stop searching for where God is telling us to go. Who wants to bring change when we are flourishing where we are?
The keys in my dream were not for my car, representing my ministry, they were for my home representing heaven. My grandchild represented my future. God was trying to tell me to stop looking for the keys to my ministry, which is not mine to begin with, but to look for the keys to heaven.
The keys to heaven: knowledge; authority; wisdom; opportunity; access; understanding; revelation, etc.. etc..
Change never seems to be easy, but it should always challenge us to grow. The Lord moves you to help you grow and to help the kingdom of God grow. Whether your change is coming from your ministry, job,, church or personal life, are you willing to grow?
Ephesians 1:17 I....do not cease to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers: 17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, 18 the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, 19 and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power. [NKJV]
Can you take on a good challenge?
