Last week I had a vision of books. There were 3 books in the vision and the last book was in God's hands. He was holding it.
The first book was open about one quarter of the way, the second book was open about half way, but the book God was holding was fully open.
As I was looking at the books He spoke and said to me, “Which book are you reading? What story are you reading? It is time to read MY story for you and for your life.”
Then He began to tell me, “The first book you see, the one that is a quarter of the way open, is what the enemy (the devil) tries to tell my people about their lives. It is the story he is trying to write. It is the story he is trying to lie to them about. It is only one quarter open because they do not believe all he tells them, but they believe some of it. It is not the real story for their lives.
The second book is the story My people are trying to write for themselves, their plans, their ideas and what they say about themselves. It is half way open because they accept more of it and believe their own voice and ideas for their lives more than mine. And the last book that was fully open and in My hands is MY story for your life. It is absolutely time for you to read MY story for your life. This book IS the TRUTH for your life.”
As He said the last words, He took His hand and knocked the first two books to the ground and when they hit the ground they immediately closed. And he said, “It is time for you to read My story for your life and live them out. Throw the others out and forget them. I have written the true story for your life and it is time. Open it up and read it. The other two books were just rubbish and needed to be thrown out. My story is the story I have for you and the one that I want you to live out. So YOU need to throw the other books out and live the life I have for you to the absolute FULLEST.”
Psalms 139:14-17 (NKJV) “I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well. My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they were all written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them. How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them!”
Psalm 139:16 (TPT) “You saw who you created me to be before I became me! Before I’d ever seen the light of day, the number of days you planned for me were already recorded in Your book.”
God's book for you has already been written and God says to you, “It is time for you to open it, read it and live it.” Stop listening to the voice of the enemy and even your own voice and listen to the voice of God and read His book for you. I don't think I can put into words the force He used when He knocked the two books to the ground and how hard they shut. I could hear them. He is making a solid, distinct point: throw the other two out and only read His. Open His book for your life, read it, step into the story and live it out.
