Did you ever have an odd incident happen to you and you just knew that it was from the Lord? This happened to me today. There is a Giant Tree by my house, an unusual tree. It just looks strong and beautiful. I love trees but I am not what they call a “Tree Expert” by any means. I kept wondering what type of tree it was but not to the extent of researching it as I do most things.
Today, as I got out of my car to go into my house, I saw this cute little acorn behind my right tire. Good thing that I didn’t crush it pulling in right? It was just so unusual for it to be in the place where it was. I started to walk away but something attracted me back to it. I picked it up and looked at it and brought it into the house.
I feel in my spirit that God was sending a message somehow. As I sat in my kitchen taking these pictures, (flash on and flash off), I heard the voice of God whisper to me. I couldn’t make out the words but I knew it was Him, speaking or ‘humming’ love notes to my heart. Sometimes I believe that He just sends us love messages just to let us know that He is near. I am almost in tears right now. God is sooo good.
I Googled up what Acorns allegedly represent and I got the following:
1. Acorns are considered to be a lucky (blessed to us) symbol, representing prosperity, youthfulness, power and spiritual growth. They are good to have around.
2. The acorn is the seed of the mighty oak tree; therefore, it symbolizes potential and strength, honour and longevity:
“The strongest oak of the forest is not the one that is protected from the storm and hidden from the sun. It’s the one that stands in the open where it is compelled to struggle for existence against the winds and rains and the scorching sun.” Napoleon Hill
The acorn as a heraldic symbol may indicate independence to its bearer.
Oak leaves also represent strength, stability or nobility.
When oak leaves and acorns are combined, the entire symbol can stand for power, authority or victory. For that reason, it is also commonly used on military tombs.
⇢ It is believed that the cross in which Jesus has been crucified was made of oak tree (although other kind of woods are also mentioned, such as wood from the cypress tree). It was a common practice to place children’s graves near oak trees. ✞ ✞ ✞
I believe in my heart of hearts that there is someone out there reading this with me who needed to get this message today. You’ve been wondering when your time will come, why so many struggles and why so much opposition….that is because your “seed” wasn’t ready yet. It was growing the entire time but little did your enemies know that your “seed” was/is unstoppable. Your seed is breaking through the ground and reaching towards the Sun/Son. You are covered by the Blood of Jesus Christ and nothing can penetrate that Covering. Things may “bounce off of” it but they cannot and will not penetrate The Blood. Rise up in the name of Jesus and walk your walk and talk your talk in Christ with all courage. God wants you to fear no more. The birds have been waiting to rest in your limbs. The raindrops have been waiting to quench your thirst. The storms have been waiting to “try” your foundation and leaves only to lose to your strength and power. It’s time to rise up and be a covering for others who may not be as strong as you are. Take your place, be who God has called you to be. No more hiding, no more shedding of your temporary covering. Let go and let God.
God bless you in all of your endeavors for the Kingdom.
