Frequently, I experience very vivid dreams.
Since the Bible tells of more than one person having a dream God used in their life, I always try to pray about my dreams and ask the Lord if there’s anything to learn from them.
Last night I had a dream.
I was in church with many loved ones when a circumstance caused a part of the roof to give way and a fire suddenly erupted from another area.
Chaos ensued and I was very upset.
I wanted to help others, but couldn’t.
I’d been very close to the roof collapsing and had fallen, hurt.
Smoke from the building was making it difficult to breathe.
I rolled over, crying, trying to figure out what to do when I saw it.
I’d landed at the foot of the cross.
It was a very large wall decoration, the kind that are hollow on the inside with lights.
It was already lit, but as I looked at it, in the midst of the chaos, it grew brighter and brighter.
I remember thinking, “There’s a reason I’m at the foot of the cross.”
I stopped feeling scared and panicked.
I started praying.
And everything got better.
When I woke this morning I prayed.
Placing the people my heart has been burden for at the foot of the cross.
Today, I will continue to pray for those dear people around the world who are experiencing fear, devastation, and chaos.
That they too might find peace at the foot of the cross.
1 Peter 5:6-11 NKJV — Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world. But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you. To Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.
Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank You for Your Word! Thank You for Your truth which makes clear the chaos. Lord, thank You for showing me that I can always find comfort at the foot of the cross, because death and suffering is not the end, You rose from the dead! You saved us from sin and death and You are preparing a place in heaven. Praise You, Jesus! Nothing on earth compares to that. Thank You that You give us exactly what we need to walk through each circumstance. Please continue to sustain and supply all the needs of our dear brothers and sisters around the world. Thank You, Jesus. I praise Your holy name! To You be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.
