God's Truth

What Pleases God

     As it came to pass that upon my heart came the pleasing of God ...yet I knew not... for I was at a wonder how I might please God...yet all that I had received in the recording of the Word did somehow escape me ...for of God came everything to me ...how then could I offer unto him anything that he had not already blessed me with? Even all things physical, spiritual yes even my heart condition ...and so again in a night dream I was given that I might walk with David....
     I found myself upon on open ground with a path that lead straight ahead and off into the distance ...over rolling hills ...now right before me and under my feet was the path and ahead somewhat but not afar off was a man standing ...and I knew for a certain that it was David yet I did not know how I knew this ...and as I drew nearer he seemed to welcome me but he said nothing ...yet I could feel the joy of the Lord all over him as he seemed to me to be so happy ...now as I came closer he spoke and said "come walk with me for I have things to show you" yet I said "is it possible that I might ask you a question?" " for I know that you have the Joy of the Lord and that God with you is well pleased" to this David said "It pleases God that you are pleased with Him" ...Whoa I almost fainted in heart felt joy ...at the perfect simpleness of the truth of this matter...and I could say no more but walked with David in the blessing of it.
     Now as we walked Behold the path we were on became covered over behind us ...and the area turned from desert to garden as we walked ...and Behold I did see what appeared to be like unto a spine down the center of the path as if we were walking upon some huge animals back ...now this was very mysterious to me ...for all was buried as we walked ...path, spine dryness and the desert where the path went through again turned into a most wondrous garden of flowers and grass and all manner of beauty.
     It seemed as though David knew my heart before I asked but still I spoke asking "behold what is this that I see?" to this he said "look far to the past what do you see?" to this I said "behold how that the dry, parched, dieing desert and scorched earth has turned into a vast wondrous garden filled with all manner of living creation ...even as the path where nothing could grow is buried along the way." ...and behold we stopped and David had me look around ...yea even did the garden cover the path verily up to our feet...and I was stunned as the path seemed to be alive under our feet and ahead ...and I felt somewhat shaken at the feeling of it under my feet ...then said David "behold look at the path ahead ...what do you see?" to this I looked and said "I see the stone hard path going off in the distance, winding its way over hills toward the mountains" Now he spoke and I shook with fear at the revealing of it for he said "this path we walk upon is Satan and he is being tread down to never rise again and we must go till we find the head ...then it will be finished."
     Now it came to pass as we walked further that David did seem to minister hidden things to me ...for I heard all that he said but was not able to put them to words neither to remember at that time nor now what he said ...yet I was comforted in many things as we walked ...still there was somewhat a fear in me as if when we might cross the hills or mountains that the "Head of Satan" might appear... it also appeared that there was no fear in David as he went ahead ...for his joy in the Lord kept him in good courage even somehow I knew as he continued in the distance that he would find the head of Satan and take it ...as he did that of the fearful Goliath...
     Now at this I awoke and thanked God for the Dream and the comfort therein and to this day that walk with David is everpresent in my heart ....and I have shared this dream with as many as the Lord will open their hearts to receive it ...and when I am sore vexed by the matters of the world and joy somewhat flees me ...I take great joy to ask for this dream and the remembrance thereof ...praying that my heart be turned from the grudging in the world ...to the joy of being in the caught up by the Lord and having pleasure in my God ...
