Winter delivers more challenges than we can oftentimes count or endure but stay strong and encouraged as spring is right around the corner! To spread some joy far and wide, I desire to share a recent prophetic vision featuring a woman, a wheelbarrow, and Psalm 27.
Suddenly, as I was reading my daily devotions in our living room during the morning of February 2, 2023, I was taken into an open vision. I glanced at the clock on our fireplace mantle which read 7:26 a.m.
Scene #1 Of The Prophetic Vision:
A previously infirmed, elderly woman, donned in a sage green, shawl-collared, knit top and navy-blue slacks, effortlessly pushed a wheelbarrow into the center of her living room.
There was a sudden before and after picture of this woman to note her former infirmed and weak conditions.
This antique wheelbarrow was heavily laden with glorious, blooming flowers!
I heard in the Spirit, “Prepare the way of the Lord.”
Isaiah, one of the Old Testament prophets, first pronounced this as an encouragement and message of comfort to his fellow Israelites.
“The voice of one crying in the wilderness:
‘Prepare the way of the Lord;
Make straight in the desert
A highway for our God.’” (Isaiah 40:3)
It’s repeated in the New Testament as John the Baptist prepares the way for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
“The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. As it is written in the Prophets:
‘Behold, I send My messenger before Your face,
Who will prepare Your way before You.’
“The voice of one crying in the wilderness:
‘Prepare the way of the Lord;
Make His paths straight.’” (Mark 1:1-3)
——————- End of Scene #1 ————————-
Obviously, if this woman had been that infirmed with little strength in her back and shoulders, she probably couldn’t push an empty wheelbarrow, much less one full of potting soil and blooming flowers.
A Wheelbarrow Symbolizes Deliverance.
The reason this is so important and timely is the woman in this recent prophetic vision, suffering from the spirit of infirmity, was delivered!
“Now He [Jesus] was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath. And behold, there was a woman who had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bent over and could in no way raise herself up. But when Jesus saw her, He called her to Him and said to her, ‘Woman, you are loosed from your infirmity.’ And He laid His hands on her, and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God.” (Luke 13:10-13)
Is it not fascinating that a wheelbarrow symbolizes deliverance? I had no way of knowing this ahead of receiving this prophetic vision.
Strength And Healing Are Being Restored To The Weak.
Strength and healing are being restored to the weak, and extra strength will come in the springtime of the year as evidenced by the blooming flowers.
March 20,2023, marks the spring equinox. With 20 symbolizing expectancy, waiting, and redemption, what a glorious time this will be!
Those who have not felt like they’ve been living the full Christian life will be lifted to a higher place to feel like they can live again.
We are in the Hebraic year 5783, Gimel, with the Hebrew pictorial symbols of benefit(s), camel, and lift up.
The woman in the prophetic vision could literally lift up the handles of the wheelbarrow to push it into her living room.
A sage green-colored top indicates increase, growth, and prosperity. Spring is a time of flourishing, new growth, and new life.
Scene #2 Of The Prophetic Vision.
After receiving the first part of this prophetic vision, I waited on the Lord for further revelation.
At 7:42 a.m., I was taken into the second scene of the vision.
Family members approached the woman and started pulling their favorite flower from inside the wheelbarrow which had supernaturally been placed there.
Those in attendance broke into joy, laughter, and singing. The atmosphere suddenly changed from negative and downtrodden to positive and renewed.
The Holy Spirit impressed upon me that as the flowers were lifted from the wheelbarrow, individual burdens were also lifted.
——————- End of Scene #2 ————————-
Decoding Scene #2.
Flowers represent happiness, friendship, joy, gifts, offerings of praise and fragrance to Jesus Christ our Lord, prosperity, clothing, the cycle of life, and glory.
They bloom in the spring of the year which is another confirmation of the time frame of this prophetic vision. Revelation manifests in the Spirit before it becomes a reality in the physical world.
In addition, flowers speak their own language and bring such joy, happiness, and restoration.
Pastels & Vivids.
Some of the pastel and vivid flowers inside the wheelbarrow included:
Red tulips signal a declaration of love, imagination, and dreaminess.
Yellow Irises declare faith, wisdom, valor, a message of love, and royalty.
White Daisies with yellow centers that telegraph innocence, purity, and new beginnings. The elderly woman experienced a new health beginning when she was able to push the wheelbarrow into her living room.

Psalm 139 and Our Favorite Flower.
According to Psalm 139:13-16, when God created us before the foundation of the world, He placed our favorite flower preference inside our spiritual DNA.
What is your preferred flower and why?
Can you readily see God’s handiwork in this aspect of your life?
Drawing upon a quote from another Author and Illustrator, Marjolein Bastin, “We can find inspiration in any blossoming flower, the gentle bend of each soft petal, the glorious green of every stem and leaf.”
Psalm 27 & The Number 2.
I was reading Psalm 27:8 on 02/02/23 when I received this prophetic vision.
“When You said, ‘Seek My face,’
My heart said to You, ‘Your face, Lord, I will seek.’” (Psalm 27:8)
One theme of Psalm 27 encourages us to profess our exuberant declaration of faith in God just like King David did and to not be afraid.
“A good man deals graciously and lends;
He will guide his affairs with discretion.
Surely he will never be shaken;
The righteous will be in everlasting remembrance.
He will not be afraid of evil tidings;
His heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord.” (Psalm 112:5-7)
A faith-filled life is paramount these days, and we must not give in to fear which is so tormenting.
“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.” (1 John 4:18)
One sure way to know if we’re living in fear is that we feel tormented and experience a lack of peace in our spirit.
When we abide in a fearful state of mind, we lose our strength. The only fear we are to have is the holy, reverential fear of the Lord.
Our Hearts Must Remain Loyal To The Lord.
Our hearts must remain loyal to the Lord as indicated in this verse:
“For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.” (2 Chronicles 16:9)
Please note the word strong included in the above verse. Additional strength is provided by the Lord when our hearts remain loyal to Him.
The Number 2.
Two symbolizes witness, a faithful witness, testimony, being set apart and consecrated to the Lord’s work such as the Old Testament Prophet Isaiah and New Testament Prophet John the Baptist were, association or agreement, rewards, multiplication, warmth, and support.
There would be a double emphasis upon all of the above symbols since there are double number twos – 02/02/23 is the date I received this prophetic vision.
Prophetic Insights For Daily Living.
#1. An antique wheelbarrow speaks of bringing generations of families together in your living room to help prepare the way of the Lord for those who still need to come into the kingdom of light and out of the kingdom of darkness.
One’s living room represents truth, revelation, flourishing, families, gathering(s), connections, celebrations, and relaxation.
Pray and ask the Lord to help you facilitate family gatherings if you can do so. Also, if your family doesn’t live close by, there are always other families who will be blessed when you open your living room to them, show the love of Christ, and lead them into the way of salvation. (Romans 10:9-10)
One aspect of “Preparing the way” is to create an inviting environment or to make it easy for someone to receive what the Lord has for him or her. This correlates to Psalm 27:8 (the verse I was reading when I was taken into the open prophetic vision), seeking the face of the Lord, and inquiring of Him.
On September 13, 2021, I authored a blog post titled, “The Woman and The Candle” which encouraged us to reach out to others and invite them to our homes for food and fellowship.
Perhaps you’ll feel led to bless them with a small bouquet of vivid and pastel flowers!

#2. How does this prophetic vision of February 2, 2023, speak to you? As you ponder the symbols and verses, is the Holy Spirit quickening anything unto you? If so, I would encourage you to make a notation of it in your prophetic journal.
#3. For those of you who are currently physically strong, pray and ask the Lord to make you keenly aware of those who could use extra intercessory prayer for strength and healing.
When we stand in the gap and intercede for others in need, we are blessed right along with them.
Every day holds the possibility of miracles! God has an endless supply and never runs out of them.
“You are the God who performs miracles;
you display your power among the peoples.” (Psalm 77:14 NIV)
#4. Are you battling the spirit of fear in any manner? If so, what’s causing this or what is the root of it?
I’m reminded of the Apostle Paul’s encouraging words to his protégé, Timothy, (1 Corinthians 4:17)
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” (2 Timothy 1:7)
Standing upon God’s word along with memorizing and reciting the above-listed verse aloud every time you sense that demonic spirit of fear knocking on the door of your heart will greatly help.
Noting the Biblical instructions from 2 Timothy 1:7, power, love, and a sound mind are combined antidotes to the spirit of fear.
Power – You have God’s power within you since believers are filled with the Holy Spirit of God. (John 14:16-17; Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 6:19; and Ephesians 4:30)
Love – Walk and operate in love. (1 Corinthians Chapter 13; Galatians 5:22; Ephesians 5:2; Colossians 3:14; and 2 John 1:6)
A Sound Mind – We have the mind of Christ. (Romans 12:1-2; 1 Corinthians 2:16; and Philippians 2:5)
#5. Reading the Psalms and Proverbs daily is like getting a fantastic spiritual infusion from heaven. Meditate upon Psalm 27, and extract from it exactly what your body, soul, mind, and spirit need right now!
Soon and very soon, we will be able to declare this verse,
“For lo, the winter is past,
The rain is over and gone.
The flowers appear on the earth;
The time of singing has come,
And the voice of the turtledove
Is heard in our land.” (Song of Solomon 2:11-12)
