Chased in My Dreams

This is my day for getting things done, Father. I would ask that You would place Your hand upon my shoulder. Direct my thoughts and actions to what You would have me do. Amen.

I’m not exactly sure what triggers them but quite regularly I have very realistic dreams…and last night was one of those nights. Something I ate may have caused me to dream but I have no idea what caused me to dream what I dreamed.

I guess it could be considered a “horror” type story line in that I was trying to escape from others trying to get me. One scene involved Karen and me in a fairly large, dimly lit room where we were sitting at a table with lots of other people sitting at tables.

Suddenly I jumped up and told Karen that we needed to get out of there. Others in the group were deceptively dressed in white attire and I heard voices saying, “We are dark, we need to get the light!” It was very obvious that they wanted me “dark” and not “light.” And then even more alarming was the fact that Karen was after me, too!

Now, it sounds quite silly but lying in my bed in the darkness of night, I couldn’t shake the feeling of foreboding. And to be honest, I looked over at Karen’s sleeping body more than once. It actually came to the point where I needed to pray about it because that was all I could think about!

Lord, as my fears began to diminish, I began to think of how in reality I am in a contest of sorts where I am a representative of “Light” (You) in a very legitimate battle against the “dark.” I don’t necessarily have people trying to convert me to the dark but my world sure does put forth a lot of effort and many of those things, as I’ve referred to many times, are not “flesh and blood enemies” but we are “fighting against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 6:12

Lord, today and in the days ahead help me. Sometimes I am weak. And even when I am strong, they can still get me. Help me to stand with my hand in Yours. That’s the only place where I am sure to be victorious!
