While We Slept
For as long as I can remember I have been a dreamer.
It was only recently that I have learned that my dreams are a glance into the realm of the spirit, where I can get a glimpse of the plans God has for my life. Conversely it also gives me a glimpse of the plans that the enemy has for my life and the tactics which he seeks to deploy to derail the plans of God for my life.
We see this confirmed in Job 33:15-18:
He speaks in dreams, in visions of the night,
When deep sleep falls on people as they lie on their beds.
He whispers in their ears and terrifies them with warnings.
He makes them turn from doing wrong; he keeps them from pride.
He protects them from the grave, from crossing over the river of death.
I would also venture to say that the enemy- who sought to set himself up as God and imitates all that he does, also infiltrates our dreams in order to seek, kill and destroy the plans that God has for our lives. I have learned the importance of seeking the help of the Holy Spirit in interpreting our dreams and the necessity of cancelling out those dreams.
Recently, I had a dream that was really alarming to me; I dreamt that I was working at a call center and calls were coming in. I was distracted and walked away from my desk and began letting the calls drop. Eventually I left the office and went to a DMV type office, there was a line of people waiting outside. When we were finally let in I saw a bunch of workers behind a desk and they were separating people based on what department they needed. I went up to see what department I needed to visit which is when I realized that I could not locate my id.
I found my old drivers licence and provided it to the woman behind the counter who scratched off some information while I continued to search for a new one. In searching my wallet, I pulled out pictures of my family (old black and white) that looked like generations on my moms side and I also pulled out my marriage certificate and gave it to them to look at. They (two women behind the desk) were very friendly and jovial. I woke up still not finding my licence.
My initial thought was that it was a friendly dream given the demeanor of the women in my dream. Yet as I thought more about it, why would I leave my job to go somewhere and not know why I was going there. Why could I not find my license (my identity) and why did I allow the person to scratch the information off of my Drivers License? Why did I have a copy of my marriage certificate with me and a photo of the women in my family?
I do not have the full interpretation of the dream, however I do understand that I must renounce and disavow any agreement that I would have made to keep myself and my family in bondage or in agreement with the plans the enemy has for my life.
Father I cancel every contract, covenant and/or agreement that would have been made while I slept. I come into agreement with the plans that God has for me concerning my life, my identity, my marriage and ministry. God I ask that you put a hedge of protection around our family, do not let the enemy have dominion over us to cause us to fall away from you. Please give me the grace and the faith to say what doth said the Lord. Please do not allow me to go backward, but to do your will in the name and by the blood of Jesus.
Friends do not take lightly the dreams, warnings and revelations you have received. Pray without ceasing.
