Helping others has sometimes put me in some sticky, uncomfortable, and even some dangerous situations.
One time a woman asked me to do something and I felt a little uneasy when I thought about doing it, although part of me wanted to because I thought the results for someone else would be for the best. But I wasn’t sure if it was the right thing to do so again I went to James 1:5-6 where it says if you ask God for wisdom and believe without doubting that He will give you that wisdom then He will.
I asked the question very specifically and went to sleep.
The next morning I had a dream where I was inside a grain car. I had a clipboard in my hand and a tester in the other hand and I was taking samples of grain and putting it in the tester. I kept thinking I don’t know how to do this, this isn’t my job. A woman came up to me in the dream to get some results and again I thought I don’t know how to do this, this isn’t my job.
I woke up in the morning with the absolute knowledge that I wasn’t supposed to do what I was asked to do, it wasn’t my job. I went to the woman who had asked me to do the deed and told her the guidance I got from my dream and also told her that I believed that God was protecting us both by not letting me do what she asked. She thanked me and added that she felt relieved. She was relieved that that wasn’t the right thing to do.
I know I have shared many dreams. It is one way God speaks to us. There are at least 30 times in the Bible where God talked to people in dreams.
Job 33:14-16 (NKJV)For God may speak in one way, or in another,
Yet man does not perceive it.
15 In a dream, in a vision of the night,
When deep sleep falls upon men,
While slumbering on their beds,
16 Then He opens the ears of men,
And seals their instruction.
Joel 2:28 ESV /
“And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your
daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, and your young men shall see visions.
Acts 2:17 ESV “‘And in the last days it shall be, God declares, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams;
James 1:5-6 (NKJV) If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. 6 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.
Proverbs 3:5-6 (NKJV Trust in the LORD with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
6 In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct[a] your paths.
