Just recently, I had a dream where the Lord came near and I was surrounded in His love. He communicated that He would give me whatever I asked. It was my impression that this is a special opportunity and I could be confident of the answer. Scripture says, “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.” (1 John 5:14) However, this was the Lord Yeshua approaching me and telling me to choose something He will definitely grant. It seemed like a once in a lifetime opportunity. I began to think of people and issues I had been praying for: my son, his daughter, my wife, friends and their various needs. I couldn’t really pick just one as it would seem insufficient or unworthy of such a wonderful opportunity. As I continued to think and experience the awe and glory of His love I woke up. I thought that was really good, I should write that down, but I didn’t and couldn’t remember until now, two weeks later.
Should I have selected something, anything and said, “Grant this Lord.” What would you have done if you were made such an offer.? What request is greatest on your heart and how quick did it come to mind? One impression of this dream was the importance of giving things away, having purses that do not wear out because they are regularly emptied when filled. This is what Yeshua taught and demonstrated through His life, giving to others as we receive. The healing, restoring, resurrection power that Yeshua received was given to others, reflecting the nature of His Father God. (John 5:19) It is true that we don’t know how to pray as we ought. (Rom. 8:26) We often receive healing by going to doctors, we work diligently, wait, and overcome many challenges through God’s grace. What I should have sought, rather than a demonstration of His kindness, was more faith to see and believe in His love for me and others. That was the overall impression of the dream, including His offer, and it was overwhelming – Yeshua loves me. Out of His great love He gives me whatever I ask. “This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.” (1 John 4:10)
Yeshua Messiah has redeemed a people for God to make His own. He did this at the cost of His life on earth and through great suffering, injustice and pain. He knows thoroughly everything we face in life and has made a way for us to overcome. “This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment: In this world we are like Jesus.” (1 John 4:17)
