God, the gentle Archaeologist

I had finally managed to get to church that Sunday morning. If the devil had succeeded in his plans I may not have seen what God so graciously showed me.

I stood in powerful praise and worship. All of a sudden I saw myself standing over South Africa. I bent down and started to pick it up at its tip and it snapped off like a piece of matzah. I lifted South Africa up and handed it to the Lord. He had an archaeologist’s round brush in His hand and He started dusting off the surface of the country by twisting the brush clockwise and counter-clockwise to remove all the dust, debris and dirt lying on top. And the more He dusted the more pure gold became revealed beneath the surface!

Archeologists use soft bristled brushes to take great care in removing debris and dirt from fragile artifacts to prevent them from getting damaged. This tells me that South Africa is a very fragile country, considering our past and present, and only the precious hand of God can gently deal with removing the debris that is blocking people from receiving the gospel. Only God’s mighty plans and purposes can reveal the gold that lies beneath! Amen Jesus!
