6 legged sheep???

In the weekend I saw a vision of a sheep that had six legs. And what I believe the Lord is saying, there are many sheep, (followers of Christ), but they are trusting in their own strength and not in mine. 

When we trust in our own strength and abilities we forfeit the grace that can be ours, the enabling that comes from stepping out in faith in the impossible, the testimonies that give God the glory rather than the expectation of what should be because we have put our hand to something. 
God is the God of the impossible and in order for the miracles, the testimonies, we need to be a people that step out in what we can't do and allow God to come in and do the impossible.  That may simply be asking the Lord to help you to forgive someone that has hurt you so much, to getting on a plane with no finances because the Lord has asked you to, to continue to stay in a job/church/marriage/relationship you don't want to because that is where God has placed you, to praying for a miracle of cancer. 
Whatever the day brings are we walking it in our own strength or in the strength that comes from the Lord, from trusting in his promises found in the word, where we need him in our day to day because when we are weak, He is strong. My dependance on a day to day basis is in Him.
Psalm 28:7
The Lord is my strength and my shield;
my heart trust in him, and I am helped.
My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song.

Psalm 84:5 
Blessed are those whose strength is in you, who have set their hearts on pilgrimage. 
As they pass through the Valley of Baca, they make it a place of springs;
the autumn rains also cover it with pools. 
They go from strength to strength, till each appears before God in Zion.
