Father God Yehovah Speaks in Dreams

“He speaks in dreams, in visions of the night, when deep sleep falls on people as they lie in their beds.” (Job 33:15 – New Living Translation)

Last night I had a dream and in that dream there was a truck that was steadfastly going in the intended direction, but only at about 10 miles an hour.

On reflection, I realise that truck was me.

I have issues. Well, don’t we all? I wrestle with pride, control, fear and a lack of faith. The bundle makes sense… I want to achieve, I try to achieve, I’m afraid I’ll mess up, and in my human effort, I interfere with God’s process and so I fail. If I had more faith I’d mess up less often. That’s me, in a nutshell.

I messed up again over the weekend… trying to protect myself from shame, I hid when I should have stood strongly, and trusted in God’s favour and protection to yield success. Instead, I created the failure I feared.

Well, last night the LORD spoke to me through that truck. I’m moving forward, He said, slowly but surely.

I needed to hear that.

In a lifetime of getting in God’s way, I need to hear that although I’m inching forward, I’m going in the direction He calls me to go.

Thank you LORD, for dreams.

Now, will you please give me more faith:)

In NA (narcotics anonymous ) there is a slogan
Progress Not Perfection

If you ever have chance checkout any 12 step meetings I have never experienced community and real people laying it down before God and the family of other addicts. I believe if we are really honest with God, ourselves, and our brothers /sisters in Christ we are all addicted to sin as our sin nature constantly rears it head (devils lies). Just like any addict they will not fully overcome their addiction and must stay connected to group meetings accountability to work the 12 steps

They deal with there sin/addiction through confessing their sin to God and one another. Never saying they are cured from sin as that is when they fall and when we as Christians fall.
1 Corinthians 10:12

Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. James 5:16

I find that in my experience in church, bible study,and even men’s groups true confessions of one’s sin may be confesed privately before God and to one’s self but rarely brought out in the light before fellow believers. In my own experience I run up a multiple sins and over looked/decieved having a stronghold for 32 years. If I would have been following a 12 step process this sin would have never grow into a stronghold. I have learned the power of constant confession in a committed community to overcome sin.
In a matter of attending meetings over 3 months my stronghold has knocked down and I now thirst for God’s word as I have seen and experienced God’s promises for me as a co-heir in Christ. I will not settle to live my life as the old man but as a new man with a renewed mind.

Submit, confess, repent, seek righteousness, justification, and sanctification. Equals freedom, peace, joy, and love. As John Calvin states
Mortificaton and vivification of the holy spirit.

Yes indeed, we are all on a journey and as you point out, that journey is enhanced when we confess to one another. Bless you for your courage and for sharing your wisdom. The New Man’s walk is not easy, but it is bright and free:)
