A few years ago I was in prayer and meditating on the presence of the Lord and suddenly found myself having a vision. I saw myself sitting cross-legged on the floor of what I knew as the “court” of heaven—not the judicial court, but the King’s court. The room was large, I can’t remember seeing any walls. There was light all around, everything was bright.
About 20 feet or so in front of me I saw Father God sitting cross-legged on the floor. He had a large ball that He bounced at me and I knew I was suppose to catch it. I had to strain as it almost bounced past me, but I did catch it. He told me to bounce it back to Him.
Growing up I had been taught the right way to play with balls in the house. You sit with your legs open and push the ball on the floor to make sure it does not bounce and hit anything. Thinking of this I rolled the ball nicely back to Him.
He looked at me with a quizzical expression and asked, “Are you afraid of breaking something?” As He said this I noticed a beautiful, ornate vase slightly behind Him to His right. He reached back and flippantly knocked it off of the pillar it was sitting on. When it hit the marble floor it shattered in a million pieces!
As He held my gaze He reached His hand back to where all the pieces were on the floor. I watched as all of the pieces slid together and lifted up making the vase exactly as it was before in His open hand. It looked perfect, I couldn’t see a single crack.
As He placed the vase that had been made whole back on the pedestal, still keeping my gaze, He tauntingly said, “It’s not like I can’t fix it.”
This experience has given me the confidence to step out and risk as I try to follow God with full confidence that there is not a mistake I can make that His grace can’t cover. May it do the same for you!
