Worth it to Search for Understanding
Kathy—When I was in my twenties I got a call out of the blue from a lady I didn’t know well. She called to ask me if I interpreted dreams. As it turned out, the lady who called had twenty-two years of dreams and most of her dreams had elephants in them. After sitting with her for hours, I couldn’t interpret even one of her dreams! The only thing I could see clearly was that the elephant was a symbol. So, I went home and in desperate prayer I asked the Lord what the elephants represented. In my inner hearing, I heard, “A religious spirit.” His answer came so quickly that it left my logic in the dust! I was dumbfounded and totally doubting my ear to hear. I thought, ‘Lord, how can I say that to that lady? How can I explain that to her when it doesn’t even make sense to me?’ He said, “You look up the characteristics of an elephant in the Encyclopedia and I’ll show you how they parallel a religious spirit.” So, I did, and He did. My point is that if you have to search for understanding, He will make it worth the effort.
