God is the Interpreter of the Dream

I have a dream.  No!  Not a Martin Luther-King dream, just a now dream; an impossible dream.  It’s a dream that seems to have found me, rather than I dreamt it up myself.  It seems to have presented itself and said “Make me happen” only I can’t do that.  I am the least qualified and equipped person to make this happen.  That’s the curse of being a dreamer, the ever dreaming “if only” type who sees the end result not the steps to get there.  Here is where God comes in.  Although, I should say He is the dream giver.  I know that too but, this week, I learnt that He “is the interpreter of the dream” (Gen 40:8). That is, He is the one who will interpret the dream by shining a light on my feet and showing me the steps towards making it happen.  His illumination makes them safe steps. To help in finding and following these steps He also has a way marked with signs pinned onto wisdom posts. “…and the wise heart will know the proper time and procedure.  For there is a proper time and procedure for every matter…” Ecclesiastes 8:5-6

The end result will not look like I currently think it will either, because God will interpret the dream to be what He intends.

I am searching for these signposts and seeking out the correct procedure.  Thus, when I came across this message it felt it was significantly written for my today.  It was a great encouragement.

“I will teach you wisdom’s ways and lead you in straight paths.  When you walk, you won’t be held back; when you run you won’t stumble.  Take hold of my instructions; don’t let them go.  Guard them, for they are the key to life”. Proverbs 4:11-13

The knowledge that He has a straight path for me to walk, on which I won’t be held back is so strengthening.

This is the path of faith and trust.
