Vision of the Lord in Multi-Colored Robe (Favor For Purpose)
Vision: The vision the lord gave me this time was I woke to seeing him sitting in front of me and I saw he had a slight smile and had a multi-colored robe on with earthtone's. His hood was down in this vision and hair was a bit wavy. The first thing that hit my spirit when I saw it was "God's Favor." The way he was smiling, sitting so close and because he knew the story that came to my mind was Joseph. Joseph was favored by his dad and was given a coat of many colors. Joseph also loved to share his dreams from God, but his brothers became jealous of that as well as how their father favored him, so they sold him into slavery assuming he was boastful or spoiled, but I know this isn't true. God chooses ppl who love to share and have good intentions in their heart to give out the dreams or visions God provides. When I shared my testimonial and dreams or visions with people many of them called me boastful without knowing who I truly am in my heart. They saw with their flesh, not the spirit. They didn't realize I just loved sharing the visions and dreams from the lord bc it was really from him and I gave him the glory for it. As a matter of fact, if there is one thing we can boast about it is in the Lord and all he does is being his witness (2 Corinthians 10:17 and Acts 5:32). God puts that desire in us also to be his witness. We all are given favor from the Lord if we seek and follow him. God knew Joseph had a good heart also to get so many dreams from him. Good hearts get God's favor (proverbs 12:2) but the brothers intentions/hearts were not in a right place with God. I learned with the Lord if you are chosen by him, you also will go through a "process" greatly to be humbled like him. Many will not understand that your journey may be a bit harder and very unfair for a purpose at least not at first. Joseph sat in slavery for years and had many unfair situations until it was time, and God made him governor of Egypt and his brothers witnessed that he was not lying all along. These brothers went against God's purpose, but God used it for good.
God may take a long time sometimes, but it's because your being planted like a seed first in darkness, but God is watering and waiting for you to grow with a smile. You just can't see him watering you yet or his plans, because your in so much dirt still and being trained in that dirt. Little by little you will grow if you stay with the Lord. You may not realize how close you are now, but when you finally see sunlight, you will soar even more and be more fruitful at the right season. I want to add something God showed me in a series of visions on separate occasions, but all in order where he was first was planting seeds, then watering them, then I saw him holding a baby plant, then he was checking the roots, and finally getting rid of weeds. He showed me these visions at different times, but in order. The amazing thing about this is, I didn't pay attention to it all being together until the last vision of him getting rid of weeds. If you are in constant unfair situations even though your walking and trying to be with the Lord, then know it is for a greater purpose and plan. It has to be his timing, because he also gets excited about his plans for us, so remember he should get glory for that watering and sunlight as well as his excitement to see his children grow in his sun! We all have the ability to see God's favor if we seek to allow him to do his will in our lives fully.
"In the Old Testament verses above, the Hebrew word for favor is chen, which means grace (Ref. 2). So, in the Old Testament, the first definition of God's favor is God's grace. When God's servants found God's favor, they also found God's grace."
Song: I want to share a song the Lord gave me to go with this this morning. Through my journey and walk esp lately I have felt things are not moving forward enough for me. I sometimes feel like falling down and giving up bc of the opposition, but when the lord comes, he really shows up, really speaks, and really proves his love again and again. I am learning he is all I need and all I want. He can fill my heart like no other and he has done so despite my failing at times. This is the words I heard from a song that brought tears knowing they are from the Lord: "If you fall I will catch you, I'll be waiting...time after time" The lord showed me, he will always be there, not matter how much I feel I fail him, he offers his beautiful grace. People may make you feel worthless, but remember who knows our true hearts.
You can read the story of Joseph in Genesis Chapter 37.
Proverbs 22:1  A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold.  The rich and poor meet together: the LORD is the maker of them all.
For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the LORD. But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me.
And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him.
Heard: Heard in the spirit one morning a doorbell ring. This could be an opportunity coming in the spirit or someone coming in life.
