In Genesis 30, Jacob begins to amass his wealth and fortune by what I find to be a supernatural means of influence. He took a poplar branch or almond branch and peeled back the bark so that it created a striped look and set those branches in front of the watering trough where the sheep came to drink because that is where they mated. By seeing the branches, they then produced offspring that were striped, speckled or black and he took those sheep as his payment.
Then I remembered in 2008 when God gave me a word about building the house on Woodside that I had put a picture of the house just printed out from the plans and posted it on my wall in my office that I saw everyday and by the end of 2008 the vision came to pass. You can read about that here if you'd like.
And then in 2010 God spoke again and set us on a new path with a new vision that I didn't quite understand. In fact I may have missed it at first but the vision stood for over two years before it was understood. I wish I would have written it on the blog to be able to refer back to it, but the new word spoken to my heart was Isaiah 58:12
2 Thessalonians 1:11b... May he give you the power to accomplish all the good things your faith prompts you to do...Then the Lord Jesus will be honored because of the way you live, and you will be honored along with him. This is all made possible because of the grace of our God and Lord, Jesus Christ.
