“Urgent Message!”

In thinking about what to post today, I have decided that I should post a urgent message to attempt to grab someones attention. What are your dreams about?

God speaks to us in many forms, one of the most common ways is through our dreams. We sleep 1/3 of our lives (that’s a rather HUGE chunk!) and that gives God a lot of time to talk to us. He will speak to us during the day as well but our emotions and thoughts are steadily going, but at night we are resting and really don’t have any control over our minds, or emotions. Which gives God clear avenue to download into us what He has been trying to get across to us during the daytime.

Please pay attention to your dreams! Write them down, pray and ask God for their meaning! He will reveal them to you, look up in scripture all the times God dealt with people in their dreams. Warnings, alerts, preparations, glimpses of what was to come and keys into our past that will help us understand our now. I mean the list goes on. God has been dealing with me and talking to me via dreams ever since I was a little girl. I really didn’t understand the meaning of all of them initially or the importance of them until I became an adult.

He cares about even the little things, He really does. I remember this one time when I was little I had this black cat named Sierra and I just LOVED her! I’ve always loved animals and was so EXCITED when I finally got her! Well she was a indoor cat and we took her outside sometimes but not all the time because she was very adventurous and I was worried she would run off and not come back.

Well when we left during the day for school and my Mom for work, we would leave the windows open so she could sit in them (but they had screens so she couldn’t jump out). Well I had this dream that my cat had a hole in her neck and in the dream she was acting not like herself and all of sudden we could see this white worm thing poking out of her neck, then we pulled it out and all this pus came out!!! Yes, very graphic and gross I know! Especially dreaming of this as a little girl! Well I told the dream to my mom because it kinda freaked me out. Lo and behold it was a dream of warning from God.

My cat got smart and starting clawing at the screen when we would be gone and made a big (but rather) small enough hole for her to squeeze out of, which resulted in her scratching her neck. Then she would be romping around outside when we would be gone. By the time we realized what she had done, she had got a parasite in her neck…..Shortly not too long after this that dream came to pass, we didn’t know she had got a parasite in her neck, and sure enough one day we seen this white worm and everything unfolded just as it had in the dream.

See to someone else that may seem minor but I loved my little cat and God knew it. So He showed me and prepared me for what was to come. My cat was ok, after a trip to the vet, antibiotics and us cleaning her neck often! And this is just one time of thousands where God has showed me dreams to prepare me, to warn me, to shine light on my situation, to correct me, etc.

“For God speaketh once, yea twice, but men perceiveth it not. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed; Then He openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction, That He may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide pride from Man. He keepeth back his soul from the pit, and his life from perishing by the sword.” (Job 33:14-18)

 

This is just one of MANY scriptures talking about dreams in the bible. God gives them indeed He does, and visions also. Whether if you believe that are not, I’m definitely not here to debate but just to shed some light on this area. Have you been praying and asking God for an answer, well sometimes He answers us in our dreams. I’m not special, to God yes, but so are you!

“Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: But in every nation he that feareth Him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with Him.” (Acts 10:34-35)

I could give several examples of what God has said to me and showed me in visions and dreams ever since I was a little girl, all the way up until now. I thank Him for talking to me in dreams and I pay very close attention to them and most times He gives me the revelation then and there and other times He reveals it to me later, but He ALWAYS reveals it! I look forward to them, I write majority of them down! I have notebooks full of stuff from years and years ago! Get on the bandwagon and find out what the Lord is saying to you in the midnight hours! Be hungry for it and thank Him for it. Even dreams of correction are good because God only corrects those whom He loves and He loves us all!!!

If you have any dreams you want to share or talk about please feel free to post a comment or email me personally at joynlifenlove@gmail.com. There have been many occasions God has used me to help give an interpretation of someone elses dream. Not making you any promises, because God chooses when to disclose to me what someones visions or dreams are saying. But trust and believe this, if He dosesn’t disclose the meaning to someone else, He will most certainly disclose it to you; for it is YOU that He gave the dream to.

Be blessed everyone, for the Lord truly desires for His people to be blessed! Actively blessed! Spiritually, physically, emotionally, financially and every other way possible! Spend some time with Him today and see what He is saying to you. We have no greater friend than Him and I mean this! Confide in Him, talk to Him, laugh with Him; yes God has a HUGE sense of humor. He created humor!!! (I have more to share on that at another time-stay tuned!)

God is ALWAYS!!

I woke up early this morning around 3:30 am or so and not too long after being up and not having the greatest time trying to fall back to sleep I heard an angel speak unto me. To make a rather long story short, yesterday was an AWESOME day for my family and I, towards the latter part of the day I had some moments of some much needed correction from God.

The angel that spoke to me had a very encouraging word for me. See that is the type of God we serve, when I do something wrong no matter how small or large it may seem to me, God corrects me quickly but He never bashes me over my head about anything. His correction is firm and loving and tender all at the same time. He corrected me that evening and I prayed and repented, then He sent an angel to me in the early hours to speak unto me. Did the angel bring up my shortcomings from earlier and throw them in my face, of course not!!! See when ever an angel brings a message to you from God, he will only say what it is that God has sent him to say. God is not a God of condemnation and after I repented my transgression was cast aside as far as the east is from the west and in God’s eyes, it was as if it had NEVER taken place. That’s the power of His forgiveness and grace.

He has removed our sins as far as the east is from the west. Psalm 103:12 (NLT)

With that being said the angel had several encouraging things to share with me that I will not disclose at this time. What I will say is this, after that message “God is ALWAYS” dropped into my spirit and I KNEW that’s what I was supposed to blog about today. God is………

We as a people both believers and unbelievers alike have to get to the place that we realize on a day to day basis who God is. It’s not a one day thing, partial time, right now just because it’s working or right now just because it’s not working thing. People may try to argue that God doesn’t exist and all this other stuff, and me being me I will not argue with someone over that fact. Personally it’s a waste of time, energy and of everything else. There is a season and time for everything and there was a moment in my life where I dismissed the gospel as truth and it was nothing but foolishness to me; but there was a time that I was going to come to accept this truth and God knew when that time was. It was in His plan all along, here’s the thing with that……God will not ever override someone’s will. He just won’t do that, He doesn’t want anyone to perish but He will not force Himself on anyone so we all have a choice.

That’s love folks! We are not His puppets and He didn’t make us to be puppets. I can’t force my children to love me, nor can they force me to love them. God is the same way, we are His children and He desires our love from a giving heart and not because we feel forced to love Him.

So now moving on to God speaks, He is alive and well and He speaks but sometimes we fail to listen. He will talk to us in visions, dreams, through other people, through circumstances, situations, through His written word etc. The list really does go on. Are we listening and hearing what God is saying? For those of you that are in the kingdom of God and reading this right now ask yourself that question and be honest.

What has God already said to you that you aren’t doing? Is it something from long ago, have you forgotten or dismissed what He said? Is it something that you just really don’t want to do so you’ve passed it off like God didn’t say that to me!?! I mean really, let’s just be honest….This is VERY important!

Sometimes we have prayed about something and received an answer from God but yet we keep on praying about that same thing expecting to get a different response from God. Not going to happen! He doesn’t change what He has already said. Isn’t that great though, when you can’t take anything else to the bank as gold you can take God’s word as gold because it NEVER changes! What a dependable God we serve! Get to know Him and you’ll love Him I GURANTEE it!

Our relationship with Him is always growing and prospering and becoming more intimate and personal if we desire and seek after a real relationship with Him. Not a relationship that our parents have with Him, or our neighbors, or Beth at church, or the elderly lady down the street; but US!! There are some people that spend years and years trying to have a relationship with God through someone else, and I’m here to tell you right now it doesn’t work! Get to know Him for yourself, taste and see that the Lord is good! 🙂

You can call Him the Almighty, Father God, ABBA (which means Father), Jehovah Shiloh, Jehovah Nissi, El Shaddai, He who is and was and is to come, I AM. The many names of God goes on as well but God is ALWAYS!!! And I’m talking about God, the one true God, not a god that many people have created and made up to follow, the REAL GOD! Look up some of these names and their meanings in your bible, concordance, online. Whatever you choose but look them up. God is alive and well and He’s not missing in action.

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9 (NLT)

 

Does this verse say that God is sleeping or idle? If He is with us wherever we go then God must really be a pretty active God don’t you think? God is ALWAYS! Let’s get back to the basics, pray and ask God for direction in your life and ask Him if there is something He told you long ago that perhaps you forgot, and He will bring it back to your memory. We have not because we ask not. (That’s in the bible as well) I’m not going to put every single last scripture on here, get a bible and get into it. Or google some of these things and it will tell you book and verse. It’s more than just a book, you can’t read it like you would a typical book, there are so many wonderful hidden truths that are never made clear to us by God until we seek Him out and spend time reading, applying, reading and applying. Is He requiring you to spend 24hrs a day 7 days a week just reading your bible, no. Take baby steps and just focus on one thing at a time.
