Pieces of the Puzzle in Dreams

(Kathy Gabler) — Jer. 17:9, says the heart is a puzzle no one can figure out, but some of those puzzle pieces can show up in our dreams.  Memories you have never remembered before can suddenly be a dream video, and that can be the puzzle piece that solves a troubling in your heart-thinking.  Our heart-thinking is crucial because it affects all our life and all our relationships, Pro 23:7,  “For as he thinks within himself, so he is.”  Therefore, self-to-self dreams are very important because the scripts of those dreams reveal what is affecting or influencing our thoughts and emotions and senses and moods and attitudes.  Again, it is key to remember that in self-to-self dreams it is not God doing the talking, but us. (Sixth excerpt from Kathy’s article “Considering Dreams and Visions”)

Where Anticipation is Sabotaged

The Father-son relationship is where anticipation is often sabotaged.  If all we can see in the mirror is who we are now or any given moment, instead of who we were born to be, there is no anticipation because we are not thinking like our Father.  (“As a man continues to think in his heart, so is he”, Prov.23:7)  If we see ourselves as “only human” or not worthy or capable to act in our Father’s authority and power, that roots back to relationship and sonship issues.  If we have to rebuild our sense of covenant every time that doubt or condemnation or failure knocks on our door, we won’t come close to anticipation or God-outcomes. (Ninth excerpt from Kathy’s article “Anticipating the Power of the Kingdom”)

Negative but not Dominating

ElephantFootMouseThe response Philip had to Jesus’ question about where to get bread was that 200 days wages would not purchase enough bread for each person to have even a small amount. Yet, Jn.6:11 says that each person had “as much as they wanted” and v.12 says that “they were filled.” Even if someone were to attempt taking Philip’s defense and try to show the many negative experiences he had endured in his life and declare that no more than his reply should be expected of him, it would only serve as an excuse and a very possible preventative to his opportunity to participate in miracles. It is possible to have negative experiences without them dominating one’s heart. “For as he thinks in his heart, so is he” (Prov.23:7, NKJV). “…God is greater than our heart and knows all things.” (1Jn.3:20, NKJV)

Effect Of Words And Thoughts

Silhouetted female in front of sunset sky   Why are our words, thoughts and attitudes so important? Because they are registered somewhere in our mortal bodies. They affect us as well as others. “For as he thinks in his heart, so is he…” (Prov.23:7a, NKJV) “Words are not mere words, you know. If they’re not backed by a godly life, they accumulate as poison in the soul.” (2Tim.2:16b-17a, Msg) (cf.Prov.18:21, Msg)

Heart Thinking

heart thinking

 

Prov. 23:7, “For as a man thinks in his heart, so [is] he.”  Heart thinking includes more than just thoughts and brain activity.  It is a conglomeration of our feelings, conclusions, opinions, concerns, beliefs and memories, to list a few; and all those things contribute to who we are.  Most people wonder at some point: “Who am I?” and “Why am I here?”  I believe God wants us to know the answers to those things too.  One place to start is a reality check on how we “think in our hearts” about ourselves.  This is not about getting on a “ME” focus, but rather a healthy self-awareness.  That is important because our thinking needs to agree with God’s thinking about us.
