Lessons in Dreams…

(About a 4 min read… It’ll change your life… )


I had a dream a few years ago… that has clung to me to this day…

I dreamt that I was walking on a road… it was rocky… small pebbles and rocks as far ahead as I was able to see… the sky was blue and partly cloudy… to my left and right were trees, thick brush… briars… vines… the air was humid and thick… it felt like a path through the jungle…


I looked down to notice that I was wearing hiking clothes… I had boots, shorts… and a backpack… I heard the Lord say “keep going”… so I started walking…


As I moved forward, I noticed lamp posts along the road and backpacks… all over… some were lying on the road and others were leaning along the road side… I asked the lord “what are all of those for?”… he replied “that’s your provision”…


As I looked closer, I noticed that some backpacks had health supplies: bandages, splints, gauze, tape, bandaids… another had money in it… another type of back pack had maps, a gps, a compass and books, and the last one had food, water and sustainable goods…

I looked to my right and then my left… I stopped and asked “what’s in the jungle?”… I heard the lord say “you don’t want to go in there”… curiously I approached the jungle… put down my backpack… and entered… it was dark… and became darker as I moved deeper in through the thicket… vines and branches would hit my face… scratching and bruising me…

Before I knew it… I couldn’t see light anymore… feeling afraid… I called out to the Lord for help… immediately I felt Him standing behind me… and to my right I saw a machete in his hand… he said “take this”… and nudged me to the right… I started bushwhacking… cutting my way through the jungle… bugs were all over me… biting and annoying… I was sweating so much that it felt like it was raining… I could hardly see…


Every once in a while, the Lord would hand me a water bottle… I would thank Him… drink it… and continue… I would get so frustrated that I would start telling Him how upset I was that He led me here… he would reply and say “I know it’s hard, but trust me… I’ll lead you out of this”… I’d feel his hand on my shoulder and receive another water bottle and a gentle nudge to the right…


This seemed to go on for days… I was exhausted… hungry… upset and feeling hopeless… after hundreds of water bottles and countless nudges to the right… I saw it… there was light up ahead… I got excited and picked up the pace… the closer I got, the brighter the light was… until… I burst out onto… the same road I had left days before… I looked to the left and, again, there were backpacks and lamp posts as far as I could see… I slowly turned to look to my right… and there it was… my back pack on the road… I was five feet from where I entered the jungle just a few days prior…


I heard the Lord say “My provision is only on the path I choose for you… this is an aspect of my kingdom… you have the freedom to do whatever you want or feel… and I will be with you… I will nudge you to the right and help you with your basic needs… because I love you and I am merciful… however… you won’t receive the blessings and benefits if you’re not on the road… the lampposts represent my promises… when you get a glimpse, it isn’t your goal, but a reminder that you are still walking on the path… do you understand?”… “yes…” I replied…


My eyes were opened that day… a new revelation… a new level of submission… I’ve learned that I’m not my own source… my provision only comes through my agreement with Him…


Thank you for listening…


Michael
