How are you? Hope you had or are having a good day, today?
On July 31st, I had a kind of funny and embarrassing dream. As I felt it was from the Lord, I wrote it down, though, I was not certain whether my interpretation was right. In the dream, I was in a big banquet room. And I looked at a picture of me and other two persons taken on the beach, hanging on the wall on the other side of the room. From a far distance, I looked nice in a swimming suit, and I felt good and proud of the picture. Later, when I looked at the picture from a closer distance, I found myself in the picture, half-naked and my upper body, that of an old fat man. I said to myself, “Oh my goodness!” I was so embarrassed to see it, but I didn’t know what to do with the picture on the wall, as it didn’t belong to me. Then, I saw many people coming to the banquet room, and was so worried about the picture. I looked back at the wall, behind me, where the picture was hanging. Surprisingly, it disappeared. I thought someone had taken it away. I was so thankful and felt relieved. When I woke up, I pondered on the meaning of the dream, but was not one hundred percent sure. I kept it in my heart.
The next day, a friend of mine in Singapore sent me a few video links. I did not know which one I would watch first. But, when I was reading a James Goll’s book, “Dream Language: The Prophetic Power of Dreams,” my eyes were stuck in one word that I had been pondering. And I stopped reading the book, feeling I must watch the videos my friend sent a few hours ago. I chose an interview featuring a lady, who had Angelic encounters. She was invited as a guest and she shared her testimonies. When she was asked how to sharpen our discernment, she encouraged the audience to ask the Lord for the Discerning Spirit. She also warned that we should get over ourselves and not think we are selectively supernatural. When she mentioned the expression, “Get over yourself,” I understood the meaning of the expression from the context. But I wanted to make sure of it so I looked up my Korean-English dictionary on my mobile phone. Interestingly, “G.O.Y.A.: Get Over Yourself Award” was popped up at the top. As soon as I saw “GOYA,” I was reminded of a scene, where I certainly saw the word, GOYA, and that I had thought I would look up the word later. But I was not able to recall where I saw it, whether in the dream or in reality. Then, I became so certain about the interpretation of the dream the other night. On July 30th, I had read Lana Vawser’s latest blog, “I Heard Him Say ‘I Care About How My People Carry What They Carry.’” The message was a warning against wrong heart attitudes; it edified the Body of Christ to steward gifting, anointing, platforms, mantles in humility and purity. I felt that the message was for me, that I should really examine my heart. That night, I repented of my pride, and I said to the Lord, “Father, I want my heart to be circumcised,” while laying my hands on my heart. After the prayers that night, the Lord gave me the dream where I was proud of my picture from a far distance, but in a closer look, I was ugly. But by His Grace, He took away my sins and didn’t show them in front of others, to embarrass me. He was the one who took away the embarrassing picture of mine from the wall. He is so kind, gracious and merciful.
Right after the dream became so clear to me, another occasion the other night came into my mind, and it made me smile. Before I had the dream, I was watching my favorite TV show on farming. The reporter went to a farm where farmers grow bitter melon, Goya! It was not the first time that the Lord spoke to me through that TV show on a certain matter. I just smiled at His sense of humor.
I believe that the Lord wants me to examine my heart and steward what He would bring forth in a new season in humility and purity. He could have smashed me, seeing my heart attitude, but He is always a good Father to teach me in a gentle, yet humorous way. He is very personal and kind enough to give tailor-made teachings to each child of His.
I believe our Heavenly Father would speak to you in a very special way, be it in an affirmation, edification, or correction and so on. Are you excited to hear His voice today? I pray that you and I hear His voice, and obey Him in humility and purity in Jesus’ name.
Have a bliss!
Search me, O God, and know my heart;
