On the night of September 5, 2016 I went to bed; just having had a rather intense, hacked off, meditation/prayer session with God. I did certainly drop off to sleep; having raised certain issues to his attention. While I wasn’t expecting the dream I had; I certainly got the message loud and clear when I woke up in the morning.
In my dream I was riding in a vehicle that struck me as being rather high-end. It had a leather interior and seemed to be along the lines of a mid-sized SUV the way it was built.
I couldn’t see the driver of this vehicle. But, as we road down the road on that cloudy day in my dream, what I was telling them caused me to awaken with a strange sense of amazement and awe.
I was telling the person driving me, “I am now exactly where god wants me to be,” referring to my then current life situation. I then told them, “I’m now just waiting for him to give me further instructions as to what he wants me to do.” I felt perfectly relaxed in my dream as I said these things to the person driving us down the road and felt excited about discovering what it was the Lord wanted me to do next.
“Now,” usually when I have a one sided conversation in a dream like this, I know that I need to pay close attention to what I’m saying in the dream. This is because I’m usually being shown what I ought to be saying, doing or thinking in my waking life; the backdrop of the dream often symbolizing the situation the dream is referencing.
I knew upon waking that the reason I couldn’t see who was driving the vehicle in the dream was because they weren’t important. The only thing important was what I was saying. But, in order to make sure I would actually pay attention, the dream had to feel as life like as possible so the point could be gotten across.
And, “Yes,” it was probably very true that God had me right where he wanted me when I fell asleep to have that dream. And, I was pretty sure upon waking, too, that he’d be giving me instructions as to what he wanted me to do; even if I wasn’t liking where I was in reality.
Upon reflection regarding this dream; I think the amazement and awe I felt upon first waking had a lot to do with the clarity and simplicity of the message the dream carried. “I have you right where I want you and I will tell you what you should do next.”
It doesn’t get any simpler than that. And, if we are all honest with ourselves, regardless as to what ever life experience we are going through, “Doesn’t God have all of us right where he wants us?” Isn’t it true, too, that the Lord wants us to look to Him “First” before we take our next steps?
