Last night was one of those nights. Just before 2:00 am, I awakened and realized I wasn’t going back to sleep, no matter how hard I tried. A few things came to mind from the day before that was of concern to me, so I lay in bed praying. As I prayed, I saw an image.
I saw a single domino standing alone. As I lingered over the image, I waited for other dominos to be added, but they did not come. It was all about the single domino.
The backdrop for the image resembled a prepared photo session a photographer might have with a client. A gray cloth was draped across the floor and ran up a wall. The simplicity of the setting drew my attention to the solitary domino placed in the middle of the cloth.
As I continued to view the image, a hand entered the frame and, with a flick of an index finger, knocked over the lone domino. At first, I thought, “What a waste!” referring to my desire to have other dominos present that would also be toppled. What the Lord wanted to accomplish did not yet require other dominos. This action was a single, stand-alone event.
The Courts of Heaven have made a decision. That decision is about to enter our world and affect an outcome in our earthly courts. A single domino will fall at the direction of Heaven’s court, a domino that has not taken center stage and would not appear at first glance to be significant. This decision will be a critical and unexpected move by Heaven to bring justice to Earth.
As we wait for that single domino to fall, our assignment is to continue praying, believing, and trusting. We have been called to live a life of faith, no matter what our eyes see or our ears hear to the contrary.
