Whoa, What a Dream!

Good Morning ladies. The Lord woke me fairly early this morning and taught me a lesson through a dream. That's right, a dream. The Lord speaks to us several of ways and mine was through a dream this morning. Actually I had been awake off and on since 3 a.m. for some odd reason, and one of the times I fell back asleep between then and 4:30 is when I had this life lesson dream. Well, let me just say that I really don't even remember or know the whole dream. The only part I remember is the "important" part. It may sound crazy, but it was God's "crazy" way of talking to me. The part of the dream that I remember was: I was on some kind of train, roller coaster, or something of that sort. I remember the beginning being a train but by the time I got to the "lesson" part, I'm not sure what it was. But I was laying on this traveling ride and 2 snakes were on there. I was laying stomach down on the top side and the 2 snakes were laying stomach down on the bottom side. Well, the closer they got to me, one of them started slithering over the other one. To begin with their heads were away from mine, but at this time the one had gotten turned around and was facing me head on. At this time he was on the top where i was and was moving his head back and forth like he was getting ready to strike and attack. Well we were on this "ride" on a track with no where to go, so I had to stand up to the serpent and fight him while trying to hold on at the same time! Well then I woke up (in a panic of course) LOL! But needless to say, when I woke up trying to figure out where that dream came from is when God spoke to me the most.

Please take the time to watch this scene from the Passion of Christ before reading on:

After I just watched it again before posting, I am completely amazed at the serpent in the video. The snakes in my dream were yellow and white and i didn't realize until now that the one in the video look just like the ones in my dream! Satan even tried to deceive Jesus but he relied on his Father as we should today!
Genesis 3:1 Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden'? 2 The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, 3 but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die'. 4 “You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. 5 “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” 
 We face these "serpents" every day in our lives. And they are just like what happened in my dream. They sit back with their head held high waiting on the right time to strike and attack. A lot of times with us women, they are in our head and brain waiting to strike with those thoughts that hurt us the most. You know how the men always say that women have snakes in their head?? Well, I'm going to be honest with you this morning ladies, we do have them. And they are what causes the most trouble in our daily lives and relationships with God, friends, family, etc. But as in my dream, I had to fight the serpent with no where to go. We have to do that in our daily walk. We have to trust in God to battle the "serpent" with us. We can't just run from them all the time. We have to face those giants and let God help us. As I was thinking about this lesson from God this morning, 2 things kept coming to mind and they were:

Facing the Giants (movie)
The story of David and Goliath in 1 Samuel 17 

 They reminded me so much of my dream and having to face the "serpent".  We go through "facing the giants" everyday. We can choose to be like David and think positive and believe or we can choose to let the giants get the best of us!

As I was studying this morning I come across these scriptures:

But I am afraid that as the serpent deceived Eve by his cunning, your thoughts will be led astray from a sincere and pure devotion to Christ. —2 Corinthians 11:3
Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world.—1 Peter 5:8-9
 and the devil who had deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur where the beast and the false prophet were, and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever —Revelation 20:10 

This shows us that Satan is going to be following us at all times. He started at the beginning of the bible and was there all the way to the end in Revelation. And it clearly says that Satan will be destroyed in the end. But it is up to us to decide if we are going to let Satan defeat us and us be destroyed with him or if we are going to trust in God and allow him to help us stand up to and defeat Satan.

Facing the Giants,

  1. Wow! Thank you for sharing this "dream" lesson with everyone! We all fight satan daily but we conquer through Jesus Christ. I love the visual that the video clip gives of Jesus pleading with the Father to help him and then the look of "Confidence" he has as he stomps the serpent! That's the kind of confidence I desire! Love you dear sister!
