Lord, last week I had a dream in which I saw the number 8747. What can this mean? When I googled it, “The Dictionary of Bible Themes” revealed this number represents false gods. What? Did You send this dream to warn me of danger when I use food for comfort or when I use a credit card to supply what we have need of? Are credit cards false providers, thereby false gods who entrap?
My child, anything that you look toward, besides Me, to supply what you have need of, either for comfort or supply, is a false god. Don’t you even know that I am your comfort and I am your supply?
Now, take one day a time. Next, allow Me to direct your steps. Last year you sought and listened to the advice of others, now look at where you are. Many teachers are good. Knowledge is good, but I am the source of all knowledge. I am the source of all.
During this year, you will learn to trust, wait, and listen. Today I will become your teacher. And you will learn to come to Me for I am your source. Finally dream only the dreams I give you.
(I start to cry.) Lord, I don’t love myself very much. I’ve made such a mess of everything. and I’ve created more burdens on those I love. In addition I now realize my selfish dream for success only increased more burden on one I love.
My child, I gave you this dream for success, but look to Me, not to others. Furthermore, know that no matter what you think of yourself, I do love you.
But Lord, why?
Because you are Mine, that’s why. You don’t earn My love by correct behavior. You can receive My love because I freely give it. I only offer My love to those that will freely receive it. Then I look for their love in return, but even that is not necessary for I even love those unaware of My love for them.
Now you expect My condemnation because of your unwise choices and the errors of your past. But I bring to you no condemnation or judgment. Instead I bring to you My unwarranted love freely given both to you and others.
Yes, I want you to write and tell others of My love for them. I want them all to know of My love for them, no matter their unwise choices and their errors of the past. If they would only choose to come to come to Me, I would lift them up out of the mud they freely ran to. I would clean them up and make them presentable to My Father. I would fill their hearts with hope, grace, and joy. Hence they would receive blessings, miracles, and honor from My Father.
But Lord, we are not to be honored. We don’t deserve any of it.
But those who receive My love and My infilling are honored by My Father as He sees they are covered by My Blood. My DNA fills their hearts, body, and souls. Therefore My Father receives them fully and completely as spotless and whole.
I’m calling them to join in MY love. I long for them. Tell them I love them.
Listen My child. Listen, trust, wait, and let go- those are your goals for this upcoming year. Oh, and meanwhile pray. Yes, you must learn to pray. Trust Me to teach you how to pray, especially as I lead you to intercede.
In summary, learn to listen, trust, wait, let go, and pray. That’s your focus for 2017. Now read My Word.
God made my life complete
when I placed all the pieces before Him.
When I got my act together,
He gave me a fresh start.
Now I’m alert to God’s ways;
I don’t take God for granted.
Every day I review the ways He works;
I try not to miss a trick.
I feel put back together,
and I’m watching my step.
God rewrote the text of my life
when I opened the book of my heart to His eyes. . .
. . . What a God! His road
stretches straight and smooth.
Every God-direction is road-tested.
Everyone who runs toward Him
Psalm 18: 20-24, 30 The Message
