Early Morning, May 9, 2008

I have been getting antsy about all the Revival activity going on lately & started praying & saying to Jesus: Lets Go Lord, Come on lets go, open the door I’m ready! You said it was time, let’s go already!

Several hours later after praying this I Suddenly felt a very powerful almost electric horse under me & then I saw its face. It was wild eyed & had its ears back. It was in the shoot like at the Kentucky Derby & it was big time anticipating the gate opening & of shooting to the front wide open. I could feel this horse under me & I could feel the reins. I have had a lot of words concerning the race that is before us. I have had lots of words about shifting into high gear, about being on the drag strip with the lights going from Red to Yellow to Green & that its time. I have had people tell me that they have seen me on this horse & I have seen others on this kind of horse – lots of words, lots of anticipation. So when I felt & saw this horse under me I kind of got excited like, Yeah, here we go.

God is so funny! Do you know what I saw in the Spirit when I looked to my right. I saw one of the funniest things that you could imagine for a horse race. I saw a donkey with its ears peeled back. It had the biggest grin that you have ever seen & rick joiner was on its back. It was loose & was taking what I would call these long sure strides (its strides looked like a camel stride more than anything else)! It knew that we were all looking at it, but it did not care. It was grinning & smiling but it was racing!

When I saw rick joiner on its back, he was kind of looking down at it & grinning to. He was letting it go wherever it wanted. He was not pushing, pulling or cutting into the donkeys sides. I did not notice the reins. I do not know how I knew this, but I had the distinct feeling that Rick was just grateful to get to ride.

I realized after seeing this that there are a lot of people who have promises from God & are anticipating the doors or Gates opening & being off & running. I got a real message out of this! That Jockeying for position is not a good thing at all & that This race will not be won by the swift, but rather by the sure footed. I felt a don’t be in such a hurry message coming up.  I think that it will be best in this race to wait until Jesus opens the doors or gates & lets us go through. Don’t push or shove & complain about position in this race just Slow down & enjoy the ride!
