But after being warned in a dream…

February 6, 2007 leahdanielle

Starting last night, I’m reading my Bible every night before bed.  I’m starting with the Gospels because I want to study Jesus’ life.  I read chapter 2 of Matthew last night (because chapter 1 was a genealogy and…no thank you.)  It gave a brief summary of Mary and Joseph’s uniting and of the birth of Jesus.  It also gives an account of the visit by the Magi.  One thing that kept sticking out in my mind is how often God warned or spoke to someone through a dream.  And I found it even more incredible that these people knew that their dream was really from God and obeyed it!  I mean, that’s gutsy!

 I know my dreams are usually really weird and incoherent.  For instance, last night, I had this superly awesome dream that I was a super hero with great strength who could bust through walls and defeat bad people with my team of other super heros.  Seriously.  It was actually so cool that when I woke up, I purposely pushed snooze and went back to sleep so I could continue using my awesome powers. 

Anyway, the point is, I didn’t wake up and think “OH MY GOSH!  GOD TURNED ME INTO A SUPERHERO!!!”  I thought, “Wow….that was….awesome.”  I’ve had some interesting dreams and many of them have felt very real; but I can’t imagine waking up and knowing I’ve just received a message from God Himself.  It’s amazing.  But, I figure it makes more sense to me than actually hearing a voice while I’m showering or something.  So I prayed last night that God would speak to me sometime in a dream.  I dream constantly; so I might as well dream something useful!  Seriously, though, I would love to be able to hear from Him and it seems that He prefers to speak through dreams.  I really do hope that as I continue to pray for people or situations in my life, that I will have a great enough rapport with Him so that He can speak to me in any form or fashion He wants.
