Last night God gave me the meaning to a dream I had almost two months ago after all this time of praying about it & remembering this dream again the other day. I must say, His timing is always perfect!
I dreamed that someone misspoke the Scripture verse, John 14:6 to me by saying that Jesus was the Way, the Truth & the Life!
In the dream, I corrected them (Jesus said, “I AM the Way & the Truth & the Life…” – He is!), & then, I think I woke up. All I recalled of this dream was the words spoken, not a thing else that I remember.
I definitely wrote this one down, thinking it might have later significance, that someone may say this to me & I’d have to correct them & show them that Jesus is the Way. But as I was reading John 14 last night, God downloaded a new meaning into my heart & taught me what was really meant through this past dream.
Oddly enough, this dream had come either just before or just as my struggles of lately had begun.
I believe that God was using this to make the following clear to me:
That Jesus IS the Way & the Truth & the Life, not WAS! That I need to live like He is & not live as if His words are only in the past tense! I am saved by Him, & even the mistakes I may make don’t keep me from God’s love forever. He is the I AM, not the I was. The worrying I have been doing for far too long wasn’t revealing my living this God’s I AM in my life. I believed that He is, but I was living often times as if He was — still letting life get me down when God has everything under control! All I need to do is just let go of my burdens & trust Him.
This shall become my reminder when times get rough, when worrying or negative feelings won’t go away even when I want them to, or when life brings discouragement.
It’s amazing the ways God will speak to us, isn’t it? What’s your story of Him speaking to you in anyway?
