Daily Devotional – 5/13/15 “Night time!”

God will speak to us at night to help us with our day – isn’t that something? I sometimes wonder why God will use my dreams to speak to me, why He would have me up at night, why He would give me these strange thoughts, at night; no less and then it was said to me; God can speak to us in our night to help us in our day. Ok! I often time find when I am toiling with something, it is then that God speaks to me in my dreams. I say it is His way of calming my wandering mind. Has anyone ever been there? Have you ever had God to show up in your dreams to calm you down? Ever had God to show up to rock you to sleep? Ever had God to walk through your dreams and give you peace that surpassed even your own understanding? Baby, have you ever had God to show up to let you that everything would be alright and all you had to do is rest? I have and let me tell you, it’s better than good and none you’ll ever find on earth! Oh but get this … I’ve also found that when we, as Christians, are running or being disobedient, God will use our dreams as a way to speak to us too because it is then that we cannot run. How many of you have been there? God will allow us to have a shifting in our spirit, at night, which will cause your entire being to be different, come the morning. Yea, it’s easy to ignore God speaking during the day but what can you do at night while you are asleep? Have you ever had God to show up and run rampant through your dreams because you were running from your dream? Ever had God to hi-jack your dream because you were heading down the wrong road? Have you ever had God to kidnap your dream because you were knocking off your purpose? He’ll do it! Baby, God will have you feeling some type of way by the time you get up in the morning. Try Him if you don’t think He will. Keep playing if you want too.

The bible says in Job 33:14-18 when Elihu was speaking to Job, he had to get Job to understand that sometimes God will use other ways to speak to us for he told him, “For God speaks again and again, though people do not recognize it. He speaks in dreams, in visions of the night, when deep sleep falls on people as they lie in their beds. He whispers in their ears and terrifies them with warnings. He makes them turn from doing wrong; he keeps them from pride. He protects them from the grave, from crossing over the river of death.” See, sometimes God has to get us in our inconvenience to make us see when we aren’t doing what we should be doing. Are we listening? But why should it take God snatching our dreams to make us listen? Why isn’t our trust stable? Why isn’t our foundation stronger? Where is our faith? I don’t know about you but the last thing I want is to be chastised by God in my sleep. It is one thing to be calmed by Him but whooped is something I don’t want. What about you? Oh but the great thing about the night-time is that the morning time comes! It is my hope that you (we) listen!
