9. LAUGH AT THE LOCUSTS
I am proclaiming that you indeed will have the money to retire and transition into the life you have desired for so long. You have worked and given to the Lord and His work. For a very long time, you have sacrificed, prayed and planned for this time of your life; and now, just as you are ready to step across the threshold into the new, a strange fear has gripped you! Grasshopper fear has made you afraid of your promised land. You feel threatened by the very things you have desired and worked so hard to accomplish. This swarm of dream-eating locusts appear to be so significant that your hope has faltered, and your plans have collapsed; but the Lord is saying that you will indeed realize your dream, and you will surely prevail! He will restore what the locusts have eaten. The Lord is a restorer! Fear not! All will be well. The Angel of the Lord will oversee this for you.
10. SUDDEN CHANGE OF PLANS
Someone has applied yourself. You have studied, gone to school, focused, labored, prepared and saved for a certain goal; but now, just as you are ready to be launched toward what you believed was your destiny… surprise! The Lord has suddenly rearranged everything. It actually is a divine intervention! Another door has opened—an unexpected door that you totally had not expected. You feel inadequate, and you feel unsure and insecure; but this is a moment in time for you. This has thrown your life, your plans and your preparations into a tailspin. The Lord has gone before you. The future He has planned for you is a good one. It is higher than the one you had planned. I hear opportunity knocking at the door. The question is, are you moving toward the door, or away from it?
11. THAT WHICH WAS, IS AGAIN
It is as though yesterday is now reappearing. Due to the complicated circumstances of yesteryear, it was not meant to be; but now, after all these years, here you are again. You are feeling the same feelings. You are coming alive again at the prospects of what could become a reality after all these years. This is your time. It was not wrong back then. It just was not time, and it was not the right season. But now, the time has come to look again. Extenuating circumstances are not the same now as they were then. This is a new beginning, only a later time. What was, is again!
12. RUNAWAY BRIDE
Your heart has always been soft for the Lord and for the work of God. You have felt a call upon your life; but something happened, and you have lost focus. Now, where you find yourself is that your feet are headed to the altar to marry, but your heart has turned in a different direction; and you are in the valley of decision! Follow your heart! The good is always the enemy to the best. There is always an Isaac for a Rebecca. Trust in the Lord and lean not unto your own understanding, and He will direct your paths. The love of your life is waiting for you, but it might not be the one waiting at that altar.
13. IT’S TIME TO GO HOME
You are in the music industry, and you are very well known. Your heart is broken, but so is your ex-wife’s. A long time ago, your feet were on a much different path; but then things began to
