I had a dream with Jesus last night!
But first what lead up to the dream:
I had been feeling very defeated lately with ongoing problems and health issues. There’s been a particular person/enemy in my life trying to hurt me and my children. I prayed for this person to stay out of my life but they managed to come visit recently anyway. It caused me so much stress I came very close to an adrenal crisis. The pain of it was worse than Labor. (I’ve had chronic adrenal fatigue for years and anything stressful physically hurts me). A friend said to me recently that the situation(person) I was facing was my goliath. Even though the person has gone now they are always still meddling in my life and children’s lives from behind the scenes. They cast curses on us constantly which I pray against every day.
I wanted God to save me and to show me He cared. I felt abandoned. But I knew He would never abandon me. I just couldn’t make sense of how I couldn’t get this person out of my life. Yesterday in my bible reading, I read the scripture where He promised that whatever we ask in His name, He will do it. I then prayed and said I want you to give me a sign or a dream and show me that you still love me. (I hadn’t heard from Him for months before this. I’ve been in a really dark place, suffering). But I knew He still loved me, I just needed a reminder, some encouragement and answers.
Then I had this dream last night:
I was with my kids running from a huge monster in a park. I guided them into the park toilets and locked the door. We were safe in there but it was not ideal and we couldn’t stay there forever. I started praying desperately for Jesus to save us. Then I saw Jesus walking leisurely in the park. Then He scooped me up with His hand (now a giant hand), and He placed me right in front of the monster! I was so confused and looked at Him and said why did you put me here? He smiled with a knowing look and disappeared. I knew He knew that I could defeat this monster. Then I saw I had a sword in my hand, my sword in the spirit. I stood up bravely, held up my sword and faced that monster. It was much bigger than me. It looked like a chinese lion. It just stood in front of me growling but didn’t attack. End of dream.
I googled the meaning of Chinese lions and found they mean “power”. They are also called Fu dogs and people put them in entranceways to protect themselves, like guard dogs. So maybe this thing was trying to protect satans kingdom… from me! Or rather He who is in me. 🙂 They are the ones who are truly afraid. They know Jesus is stronger and will defeat them. He has already defeated them!
I had felt defeated because an enemy that has hurt me and my family very much had been able to come into my home, after I had done heavy spiritual warfare to keep them away from us. I realise now that God doesn’t always keep scary situations or people away from us, but still protects us through it all. It is good to avoid people that seek to hurt you, but sometimes we can’t avoid them and then we need to keep our head up and trust in the Lord. He reminded me of psalm 23 where David said God prepares him a table in front of his enemies. I will hold my head up high if that person ever comes back. In truth they tried to hurt me and my children and they failed. They cannot hurt us, they can only threaten with intimidation, but I won’t be intimidated if I remember who I am in Christ! I feel braver, stronger now and my adrenal pain has lessened considerably! Praise God!
“Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” (Luke 10:19)
Psalm 23 1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. 3 He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake. 4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me 5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over. 6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the Lord Forever.
Ps. After writing this, a friend of mine and sister in Christ told me that she had been praying last night for Jesus to reveal Himself to me and come into my dream! He definitely answered her prayer, thank you sis! God truly heard her and she truly hears from God. Here’s a shout out to her channel: https://youtube.com/channel/UC8vcYHG9fj6P7pUzF2TTEzQ
