Staying On Course
I had a dream 07/30/2016. In the dream I owned a boat. I remember being with my wife in the boat on a river and letting the river take us where it wanted. I remember looking back at the wheel and noticed that no one was there. Then I remember seeing a side stream and listening to my wife’s suggestion to take it. At first it was no different than the river upon which we’d been traveling upon. However, the further we traveled the more shallow the water became until we finally were stranded and had to be rescued.
The river in this dream I believe to be indicative of the Holy Spirit and the fact that I wasn’t steering the boat meant that I was listening to Him and allowing Him to set the course for the both of us. It is when I listened to my wife and took over the steering taking the alternative route she suggested that we ran into trouble. Now I cannot blame her for taking us off course I have only myself to blame. The point here is that the enemy will sometimes use those closest to you to get you off course. Thankfully we serve a merciful God who helps us get back on course. I remember talking to men in the stream where we got stuck and they told me that the boat would need to be towed back to where it came. We couldn’t move forward. One thing also worthy of note is the fact that the boat got stranded in a stream. Remember we had begun the journey in a flowing river and ended up in a stream unable to support the boat thus causing us to be stranded and in need of rescue.
