WAS IT A DREAM OR SOMETHING ELSE

DREAM (300x196)Anyone who knows me knows I pay attention to my dreams. But one night not too long ago I had a dream of a different kind. It was a spiritual thing.

I became aware that I was trying to say something. “DAD” but nothing was really coming out. I could hear myself trying to say it over and over but still nothing would come out. I was in that state between being awake and asleep.  I didn’t know what was happening or why I was saying dad.  Then all of the sudden I saw a demon standing near my bed.  At that point I barely got the word dad out of my mouth but I managed to say it. The thing moved to the other side of the room. I said “dad” again a little louder the second time. Then  as fast as it came it was gone.

I had a similar experience years before. So once it happens you don’t forget. I know it would be easier to dismiss it as a dream, but I couldn’t. It wasn’t a dream back then and it wasn’t one now. I know a lot of people will disagree with me. We live in a spiritual world as well as a real world. Like it or not.

I learned something interesting. I learned that God knew I was calling on Him and He honored it. Why was I saying dad???  I was calling on my heavenly Father to protect and defend me. I did it instinctively. If I were fully awake I probably would’ve called out the name of Jesus. But I was in that in between state and God honored it!!.

It makes me wonder how many other  lessons there are yet to be learned. Calling out “dad” instead of using the name of Jesus  and having His help in the moment I needed Him is certainly something I won’t forget. It tells me how unconcerned Jesus is with our correctness. He’s much more concerned about us than being called by a particular name. He is true to His word, His character and His promises.
