Dream: The Equipping

We were driving as a team to different cities to pray. Richard was there and some friends who recently returned to America were there. We had a large map and were navigating the Carolinas. {I just realized that we weren’t using a GPS machine, which would be more normal.}

Meanwhile a clock was ticking loudly and we knew that there was not much time left. Distractions were everywhere, ringing loudly in everyone’s ears, so it was really hard to focus on anything. But we knew we had to accomplish what our goal was. And that was to be in the right place when the time came, because then movement to other places would not be possible in the natural.

We had three choices of locations to go. The first was home and we were trying to get there in the end, but first we needed to go to a school and a museum. The speed of traffic on the highway picked up and people were driving so quickly that we couldn’t steer to our exits on time. So we missed them and started driving home, but then time was up and all traffic came to a complete halt.

The car next to us had four young, athletic men who had just come from a workout at the gym. Initially they were distressed, but after talking with them, they realized that time was up and that frivolous pursuits, such as iPhone games were now irrelevant. They stood at attention, almost like soldiers, waiting for their enlistment.

While observing the many distraught people on the highway, some in an absolute panic, we realized that this was where we were called to be, so we accepted it and received the calling to comfort and bless people with what we’d been equipped.

And the question that lingered was, “What have we been equipped with?”

I wasn’t going to write down this dream, but it lingered for hours and I found it ironic to record this dream at the eye clinic where my laser surgery was.

Oh Adonai, give us eyes to see!


  1. This seems to be an important dream. I believe we need to be ready for cataclysmic changes in the near future and to know, wherever we are when they happen, the Lord has gone before us to make us fruitful and effective for those around us.  Help us Lord to be spiritually ready and equipped!
  2. What comes to mind is this saying: God doesn’t call the equipped, He equips the called.. “May the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen” (Hebrews 13:20-21). You may have heard the phrase “God doesn’t call the equipped — he equips the called.” I am not sure who first coined this phrase. This truth encourages me often when I feel inadequate to face challenges or when someone assigns me something that overwhelms me. Can you relate? Followers of Jesus have experienced this truth through the centuries, since the calling of the first disciples. The disciples were ordinary people like you and me. They weren’t the most highly educated, charismatic, or influential people of their day. They didn’t hold the highest positions with the best pedigree or resume filled with accomplishments and awards. Jesus called the ordinary and then did extraordinary things through them. He changed the world and continues to change the world!
