A Dove

Dove to most of us usually means peace of God. This morning I felt a strong sense of peace in my soul during worship in church. As we were praying in the spirit, my spiritual eyes opened and God showed me a vision of a dove flying high above. My physical eyes were closed but the vision of the dove is vivid and was there throughout the time of the prayer.

Dove also symbolizes the Holy Spirit and truly His spirit was moving among us in church. I was not really sure why God showed me the dove but all I felt this morning was perfect peace like I could not care less what's going around me but just God's presence with me and His assurance that I could always hang on to Him when things around does not look promising. You and I might be weak at certain point in our lives and it is during those times, His Grace will empower us so that we can stand against hardships, overcome our weaknesses, and we will emerge above and not beneath our problems, victorious because our God is with us.

Ps. Sam shared on this verse that I believe can encourage all of us including my readers here.

Hebrews 13: 20 - 21 (NKJV)

20 Now may the God of peace who brought up our Lord Jesus from the dead, that great Shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, 
21 make you complete in every good work to do His will, working in you[a] what is well pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.

Psalm 5:11-12 (NLT)

11 But let all who take refuge in you rejoice;
    let them sing joyful praises forever.
Spread your protection over them,
    that all who love your name may be filled with joy.
12 For you bless the godly, O Lord;
    you surround them with your shield of love.

Remember His love and His work in You is not complete yet. You are not alone do it all, He is always watching us, and yearns for us to have Him be apart of us.
Remember He first loved us, He knit you and I in our mother's womb, none of us are an accidental.

Be blessed!
