I had a vision where I was in a theatre witnessing a play. The lights were focused on the main actors with supporting actors doing things nearby. I noticed there were people sitting around me, some texting or paying attention to the others in the audience. Perhaps they were bored, or just had more interesting things to look at. They were not focusing their attention to what was happening on stage. All the brilliant light and color was over there, but for whatever reason they chose to look in the shadows. As I continued to try and perceive what the actors were doing I began to understand the meaning of the story. It began to make sense.
The Lord said that when we are focused on the light that we know His will for us. We know where to look, go, and do. Revelation is seeking for the light wherever we are. We know which “focal point” to set our attention because it is where there is the most light, and often the most darkness. (The Adversary will also rest his attention there too, seeking to destroy the light.) It doesn’t always make sense, but if we are patient and hold our attention we begin to understand.
Where are the focal points of light in your life?
You may, for example, have your thoughts directed to a person that needs help. Do you get distracted to do something else when those thoughts come? Perhaps you are directed to read something, to stop what you are doing and go somewhere, or maybe to even read a blog post. Where is the focal point of light for you?
Learning how to discern the revelation given to us is a worthy endeavor that starts with the most simple of things. When we learn to hear the voice of the Lord the focal point moves quickly from one thing to another as we are guided in the direction we need to go. Often that direction is dictated by our desires or the questions we pose to the Lord. If your desire is to know Him and be a servant, believe me, that focal point of light begins to swiftly move you toward a climactic scene – to a performance of a lifetime!
Anyone who desires to have their baptism of fire, to witness angels, behold miracles, or even to have their Second Comforter and walk with God must first learn to focus on what the Lord wants them to do. You must first learn to receive revelation.
If you struggle focusing on the light and receiving true revelation, I would suggest making it a daily part of your petition to the Lord in prayer. Ask to more fully understand revelation. Then follow where that spotlight points you.
