2016 May Experiences + Dream on Power of Faith
26 May 2016:
As I was going to sleep I was woken up and felt a bad presence. I felt kind of paralysed and helpless. I just started crying and praying to God to help me. I felt so exhausted. I trusted Him and gave up trying to control the situation and chose to trust in God. Then I felt peace and a warm light was shining from behind me going across the room. It felt like the presence of an angel, if not God Himself. I felt safe and peaceful and went back to sleep. I think this was a test in letting go and trusting Him.
I’ve had a few similar experiences to this one. This reminds me, in the past when I was very new in my faith, (about 10 years ago), I had problems with fear and seeing demons during the night. I could hardly sleep. (thanks to my JW upbringing!) I had a christian pastor come pray over my house and over me. I continued to have problems after this. I asked a friend why this was still happening, and she said to me I have “own it”. What she meant was to put faith in it. I did what she said. Instead of being afraid, I trusted in God and He came through for me. Instead of picturing the things I was afraid of, I pictured the Lord’s face and His arms around me. I was no longer afraid, and hardly ever saw demons after this. If I did, I wasn’t afraid anymore. This was a huge breakthrough for me at the time.
30 May 2016: I happened to watch a youtube video where they were saying sometimes when we are facing a challenge and it seems like God isn’t helping us, we feel alone and we even feel like God doesn’t care. He does care, but what He is doing is holding back to watch and see what WE are going to do first.
31 May 2016: Dream
I was walking with a teenage boy. I don’t know who he was, but I cared about him like a friend. A group or gang of teens (boys + girls) pushed him up to a wall and the leader of the gang started punching him in the stomach.
I knew I had to do something and my first thought was to call the police. I tried getting my phone out of my pocket, but I didn’t have it. I had to be brave, I got in front of the bully and pushed him and said “stop it”. He laughed, they all laughed. He pushed me aside and kept punching the boy. The bully said mockingly “what are you gonna do about it?” I knew then what to do as I remembered the video I saw yesterday. I looked up to seek Gods guidance and saw God in my minds eye. He was smiling at me with peaceful confidence. He was saying with His expression “well? What are you going to do?”. I knew then what to do, remembering the power I have in Jesus. (For some reason, at this point, my husband and children were standing behind me). I turned to my family and said “watch this!”. I stood in front of the bullies again and put my hand out in a “stop” gesture. (I swear at this point I felt like Neo on the matrix haha!) I shouted “In Jesus name, GO HOME!” They all backed away and left one by one. They were laughing and mocking as they backed away, but it doesn’t matter! They were doing as they were told! My family and the teen boy were amazed. End of dream.
I do believe the Lord was showing me in this dream what is possible with the power of His name. I have heard so many stories ( including bible stories!) of people doing things like this with faith.
It really is a relationship between us and God. We can’t do it on our own, we need God. But we need to have faith and trust Him to take care of the things we can’t do. Thank you Lord.
Scriptures on faith:
“Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” – Matthew 18:18
“I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.”
“He said to them, “…truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.”
Matthew 19:26 “with God all things are possible”
Edit: Nov 4th 2016 another Faith Dream and martial law dream:
Scene 1: 3 people were fighting/brawling. I went into the middle of the brawl and touched each of them and said “be calm in Jesus name”. They calmed down, stopped fighting.
Scene 2: Walking into a bank, I saw 2 men with large guns. I assumed they were robbing the bank. I went up to each and told them to stop in Jesus name. They lowered their guns and left.
Scene 3: I was in my house. My house was in NZ in the dream. (I used to live in NZ, my home country). I saw many large helicopters in a group fly past. I felt like this was either war or martial law and felt like we needed to hide. My parents were there and I was telling them that we need to leave now and they wouldn’t listen. So I tricked them. I took them across the road to some kind of entertainment venue. I told them it would be fun! When everyone was safe there, I looked out the window to see what was happening at our house across the street. There was lots of policemen breaking into our house looking for us. They were attacking the neighbours too and people that were just walking past on the street, probably trying to get info on us. My dad noticed too and he starting videoing them. I felt really badly for the neighbours getting attacked and wanted to help them, but had to stay put and keep my family safe. End
I think this dream was showing that in the future, when martial law/new world order comes, we will need great faith to get through those times, and I do have faith that God will give us what we need to get through.
Nov 5th 2016
Dream: I was teaching someone about faith. People started to gather around and then someone passed me a microphone. End.
I think this dream was an encouragement plus premonition of me teaching others about faith and here I am doing it in this blog! Hopefully I can teach more and more people in future. It is an honour and a privilege to be doing the Lords work. All glory to God alone!
Please share if you have any experiences with faith, so we can encourage each other. God bless!
