You are standing before a golden weight. It is a cylinder made of gold, that has an iron bulb formed on its top, which is intended as a handle useful for cranes to grip, lift and move the weight.
Behind you are two mechanical devices, made of iron and brass, they have many gears and armatures, but they are both devices whose function is to provide you with the ‘lift’ you need in your resources to move you during the next project you are about to begin. Both devices have an output arm that lifts, and both devices have a saddle made to hold the golden weight, which powers that device.
As I looked closer, I noticed the first device was easy to understand. Although it has many gears and levers, most of them are only decoration. In reality, that device is simply a fancy looking teeter totter. When the gold weight is put in the saddle, the other side of the fancy armature lifts all the way up immediately. Once the armature reaches the top, it trips a switch and dumps the gold weight out of the saddle and the armature drops immediately again to the bottom.
The other device has all the same gears and levers but this one has harnessed all the parts. When the weight is placed in this one, the armature rises slowly and evenly as the gears and other levers spin and toggle quite actively until it gets to the top. Unlike the other device, this one does not dump out the gold weight, so once the top is reached, that armature remains there permanently.
Then I heard a rugged construction worker who was smoking a cigar. He was yelling a question at you and was becoming impatient. He was running the crane and wanted to know which saddle you want him to move the gold weight into.
This vision is intended to show you that the first device is a trick. Choose the second option even though it appears like it will take longer.
This morning I felt a very strong urge to leave the normal format I’ve used for these writings in favour of a very specific word for someone. Today I saw your past track record of accomplishment and you have been very wise in your daily work. You have insight into the way things work and can see needs before they arise. I saw your past work as if you were one of the Israelite farmers who wandered the wilderness for 40 years, but you were the one who kept your bulls separate from your cows except when there was breeding required to keep the numbers constant. You allowed for animals to provide for sacrificial requirements but did not increase you herd while you were busy travelling. It took wisdom and foresight for you to know when to breed them and when to restrain them.
Of course you are not an actual Israelite farmer but your work has garnered the same practical benefit to this point in your life as if you were. But you have not valued your merit in the diligence with which you’ve worked like this. You have thought nothing of this style but this attribute you have is something which the world has forgotten how to develop. There is a great vacuum in the western world of this practical common fore-sense and you are about to be promoted into new areas in your life where you can begin to raise up other people to develop this attribute in their own lives.
I see your current business life continuing in your care but without your direct involvement. You will begin to see people gathering around you who have already started learning how you think and one of these is ready to take over the regular duties for you, so you can be freed up to share your gift with many. This person will not be who you expected it to be so when you find yourself in friction with someone, check your heart to see if the Lord is revealing them to you. They will be in friction with you because you both share the same attributes but they have their own style of expressing it. You have to let them do it their way or your business will be hurt. Guide them in your desires for the overall outcome only and leave the rest to them, trusting the Lord to carry out the right plans.
Then begin watching for divine connections, meetings and introductions to bring new people around you who will need this developed in them. You will need to pour excessive patience into the teaching of this natural ability you have because those who need it most will find it the most difficult to understand. Rely on God to lead you. Listen constantly for his direction and for ideas to help explain or show the principles you need to get across.
I see this becoming an organization that develops into an internet course with conferences that are held all over the world and the success of this training business will provide an abundance for you that you have never dreamed of. Don’t worry about enjoying some of it for the worker is worthy of his hire. Remember the main purpose of the resources is to continue the operation and expansion of the business so more and more people can receive it though.
Above all, turn your attention inward to your family for though you have this great gift for business, you have not used it effectively for your family. Listen to God and receive supernatural ideas to sweep your family off their feet. Woo them, brood over them and let them be the first class you graduate from this process. Remember your gift has been used in business but the teaching of it is intended to be applied in living life effectively first, and then to spill over into business.
