Satan has come to steal, kill and destroy BUT take hope because God’s government is higher. God’s government came in Jesus to give, bring to life and build and to give us life more abundantly. “The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).” (Jn.10:10, Amp)
As the people of God assemble today may they realize that Jehovah God Almighty is not just the deliverer of one kind of person, He is not just the healer of only one or two kinds of illnesses, He is not just reaching out to a select few, nor is He just blessing special people who have done very special things to deserve it. Eph.2:17-18, Amp — “And He came and preached the glad tidings of peace to you who were afar off and [peace] to those who were near. 18 For it is through Him that we both [whether far off or near] now have an introduction (access) by one [Holy] Spirit to the Father [so that we are able to approach Him].”
God’s promises are never less than His best for us. He is a God who loves us in such a way that He wants the very best for us — the best with reference to His character and His understanding of what will make us into the image of His Son. If we yield to Him and are willing to be moved and modified in the process, He will do whatever is necessary, even to moving mountains and men to bring about what is best.
While one common type of dream is a “clutter dream”, a second kind of common dream is a self-to-self dream. Many of your dreams are likely to be self-to-self dreams. These are thoughts that are under your radar coming up onto your radar screen in a dream or your subconscious heart-thinking coming up into your awareness. Have you ever had a dream in which no matter how hard you tried to run you could only move in slow motion? Desperately grabbing bushes or grass or someone’s ponytail won’t even help speed up your progress! That is a common example of a self-to-self dream which is revealing a struggle within in your off-the-radar thinking. Somewhere in your heart-thinking you are doubting your ability to get where you need to go with a project or a relationship or a job, etc. (Third excerpt from Kathy’s article “Realizing the Value of our Dreams”)
The promises of God are many and varied. There are promises of provision, of enabling for tasks and callings, of persons whom I will bless and persons who will bless me and of doors opening that will bring the actualization of those promises. Promises are those solid stones we step on when moving in the direction of purpose. They are like wings on an airplane that hold the engines and give the fuselage lift.
One common type of dream that many people have is a clutter dream. This sort of dream clears out thought-clutter and gives you room to think, (like at times you have to clean your bedroom to be able to get to the bed to sleep!) Pieces of things you have seen or read or felt or heard or smelled or done or wondered about or talked about in the last three weeks are swept into one giant clutter pile in a dream. So that night you have a really strange dream adventure like this: you are the superhero star in the movie trailer you saw. Then while you swing your sword of justice, you keep smelling the dog poop you stepped in on Tuesday, and you hear a grizzly bear behind you because you saw pictures of Alaska in a magazine. Then, because you ran into a lady at the mall that reminded you of your Grandma, when you look around you discover it’s not a grizzly behind you. It’s Grandma riding a reindeer! That is a strange adventure dream with clutter gathered from everything that has crossed your awareness. There is usually no important message in a clutter dream. They simply clear out thought clutter to de-stress you, mind and body. In fact, the Hebrew word for dream means “restore to health”. So, a house-cleaning or de-cluttering dream is a valuable way to relieve stress and reset mentally. (Second excerpt from Kathy’s article “Realizing the Value of our Dreams”)
If you are going after destiny, you will find yourself on a collision path with the order of God. Any movement toward order will expose something that doesn’t belong in your life. The destiny of Jesus will bring you into order. “Direct my steps by Your word, And let no iniquity have dominion over me.” (Ps.119:133, NKJV)
