Today in prayer, God gave me a vision. I saw myself standing in the middle of a large field and praying with my hand stretched to heaven. There were clouds as if there was about to be a storm. The ground I was standing on wasn't very fertile either.
As I was standing there, there showed up three baskets. Each basket had a baby in it. The Lord spoke to my spirit telling me that each baby represented the dreams and promises of His people. The Lord is looking to birth His people with promise and the dreams they hold dear but there’s war. Their dreams, promises, and purpose are imprisoned behind bars.
As I began to pray, in the vision more and more ‘babies in a basket’ appeared and started creating a circle around me that kept broadening out with more and more babies. These babies became so plentiful they began to fill a stadium.
I asked God why are they imprisoned? He said because they believe lies about who they are in Me. They believe what the enemy tells them. He keeps them bound through their mind. I need them to believe Me. They don't believe that they are Free. This brought me to tears.
He then led me to pray over the babies; His people who hold His promises. Feeling like Moses, I spoke in God’s name to let God’s people go, saying “Release the dreams and promises of God’s people in the power and the blood of Jesus Christ”. I felt a burden lift from my shoulders immediately!
He then reminded me of the scripture, Leviticus 18:21.
“And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the LORD.” (KJV)
"Do not permit any of your children to be offered as a sacrifice to Molech, for you must not bring shame on the name of your God. I am the LORD.” (NLT)
One could look at this and say what does this scripture mean because I didn’t understand how it may relate. However, looking more at this scripture, I learned more. Those who worshiped Molech, the fire god, would actually sacrifice their babies to him but it wasn’t just for ceremonial purposes. For instance, if there was a drought in the land and families were struggling to survive looking for food and preventing the loss of shelter. As a remedy, with satisfying their god, they thought that sacrificing a child for the sake of the rest of the family surviving the drought was worth it.
It dawned on me that we sacrifice our dreams and God’s promise all the time, especially if we feel we need to feed our families and keep a roof over our heads. The systems of the world, a metaphorical Molech, threatens us so much that if we don’t depend on it, we feel we'll lose everything. But depending on God can feel worse because you're challenged to have faith. It’s saddening but it’s God’s truth.
I pray God’s power over you; that your dreams and His promise in your bosom is released by the power of the blood of Jesus Christ. I pray that you can believe God for your life in such a way that the enemy cannot use fear or devalue your self-worth to keep your purpose in chains. I pray that you have the courage and faith to believe that God is your provider, protector, and strong tower, that no matter how the world’s system is set up for you to depend on it, you will depend on God.
Keep your head to the sky and your prayers up! Always seek the face of God and He will lead you the way you should go. May your promise be birthed! Amen!
The next time you say your prayers, include this as well! Let’s birth some birthers! Selah!
