Your dreams can save your life!

” Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.” (John 16:13)(2)
                   (1)   I want you to pay attention to the verse above. God is real, and so is His word. He wants to show you the future. I will share a testimony to show how real God has been in my life.

                  About more than 30 years ago, I was a Taxidriver working full-time and struggling to make a living. One day as I was taking a nap, I had a dream. I dreamed that I was lying on the floor on my back, surrounded by people who hated me. They were debating whether or not to kill me. As I looked at myself in the dream, I was wearing white shoes. 

                   I don’t know about you, but when I have a dream in which I am going to be killed in cold blood, it is a nightmare. Shaken, I thought about this but did not pay much attention to it. I did not have a disciplined prayer life at the time to find out the meaning of the dream. A year later, I wanted to be involved in my church and get some training as an area Pastor. 

                    Soon, my enthusiasm soured. I needed to take some training on Sunday night. Sunday nights were not on my agenda because, as a Taxidriver, that was the night where I made most of my money. Soon, I developed an attitude against the church because they could not adjust it to my schedule. 

                   I did not know it at the time, but I was hardening my heart toward God’s calling for me. Believe it or not, the Lord has a way of calling your attention; on one particular night, he did. I was working well into the night on my job, and I had the urge to pray in the Holy Spirit. 

The man ran away because I stepped down on the accelerator pad and even though I had the cab in park, the noise scared him away. I notified the dispatcher who called for an ambulance to meet me. Upon treating my wound, the doctor told me that my x-ray showed that the bullet was about an inch from a main artery which could have cost me my life.

                  Concerning the dream? It would not be until 30 years later that I would fully understand it. The Lord was trying to warn me of a future event. Had I spent some time praying and seeking God’s face, I could have avoided a possible tragedy. The Lord showed me that the fall symbolized my falling away from him, and the white shoes showed me his righteousness.

                     My being, God’s righteousness in Christ, saved my life. The word says that my sheep hears my voice. The fact that God, in his mercy, prompted me to pray helped spare my life from an early death. Friends, please pay attention to your dreams. It may be a matter of life or death. God bless.
