In the last six months, I’ve had two different dreams about me jumping off mountains. Don’t laugh. Keep reading and I’ll explain. I sincerely believe one of the ways God speaks to us is through dreams and visions. In the first dream I appeared on an extremely high, rugged, mountainous terrain. All the mountains were purple-gray, void of vegetation with vast cavernous areas between one mountain and the next. Mountains and boulders as far as I could see, and they seemed impossible to cross or climb. I saw myself running to the edge of one mountain cliff, and as I approached the cliff, my speed increased and I lunged off the edge of the mountain without hesitation. Immediately, I sprouted two beautiful wings and flew above the mountain ranges and off in to the distance.
In the next dream, I stood on the side of a mountain ledge with normal landscape and colors like the Rocky Mountains. A vast canyon separated this mountain from the one I could see across from me which was lower and had a smooth flat area on top. Once I viewed the lower mountain, I jumped towards it, flying effortlessly across the open chasm below, and landed safely on the flat ground, completely unscathed.
I’d been struggling with job issues, and wanted desperately to leave my job. I worried I was being selfish to the people I worked for and to my family for finances. At night, I prayed and paced the floor, wanting desperately to hear God’s voice to tell me what to do. I was afraid of making the wrong choice. Leaving the job would require big faith, and I had worn myself down listening to the doubt and fear satan whispered in my ears.
Worry and faith cannot coexist, and without faith, it’s impossible to please God. Finally, I told God, ” More than anything, I want to do what You want. I know that is the path to true peace. If You want me to stay, God, I will, and I will trust You to make a way for me to work there, and if it’s o.k. to leave, just let me hear You.”
Through my dreams, I believe God told me to JUMP! Take a leap of faith. He’d be there to hold me up, to help me land, and everything would be alright. My husband stood behind my decision to leave, and we made plans to tighten our financial belt, because I was leaving without another job waiting for me. I gave my employer five weeks notice, and I had a job offer the day following my last day of work.
God is good! He is a God of promise! He loves us! He will hold you up. It pleases Him to see His people step out in faith and trust Him to provide. He gets the glory and praise and you reap the benefits of His amazing love.
I spoke of God in relationship to a job, but this is how He wants to respond to us in every area of our lives. Let go. Jump off the cliff in faith for whatever you need.
If you’re asking God for a child, or you’re thinking about abortion because you can’t see any other possible answer. Don’t give up! Ask Him to speak to you and tell you what to do. Ask for that baby you so desperately want. You may conceive, you may adopt. He can give you a child. Children are His blessing to us. If abortion seems your only answer, jump off the cliff and into His loving arms. He will catch you and make a way for you to get through the pregnancy and to live in peace after the baby is born. Perhaps you’ll keep your child, or maybe you’ll be the answer to the family who is praying to receive a baby.
He wants only good for you, not evil. Give Him a chance to catch you.
