Dream: Preparing A Meal For My Father
I had this dream not too long ago. I believe it will encourage some. Please share if you feel led. There are two interpretations for this dream designed to reach two groups the Lord has been calling. Dream: I dreamed I was standing behind my father at a distance. He was sitting at the dinner table. My mother was standing beside me. She had just taught me how to prepare a meal for him. I had the meal prepared and on a tray. I nervously approached him, but I was very concerned and even fearful that he might not like it or that I did not prepare it correctly. My mother was walking with me comforting and encouraging me as I approach him, she assured me that I got the meal right. End of dream
Some of the symbolism in the dream, but the Spirit may personalize it and give you more - My father - our Father God My mother - Holy Spirit who Jesus said would comfort and guide us Me - you? Father's backside - His glory revealed Dinner table - covenant, fellowship
Interpretation 1 The Lord is showing me there are many He has called and equipped to speak for him. He is calling you to speak one on one to those in your sphere of influence, and he is calling another to speak to small groups, and he is speaking to some to speak to the masses. Do not doubt that you can do it or that you have something to offer because He has filled you with His Spirit and placed His very nature in you. Do not try to be anyone except yourself because that is when His presence and glory are released with great ease. Yield to Holy Spirit and allow Him to comfort and encourage you and as you approach Father be confident in this, you will see His glory manifest and this is His covenant with you. Exodus 33:18, 22-23, And he (Moses) said, "Please, show me Your glory."... "So it shall be, while My glory passed by, that I will put you in the cleft of the rock, and I will cover you with My hand while I pass by. "Then I will take away My hand, and you shall see My back, but My face shall not be seen." Luke 12:12, For the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say. John 14:25, "But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all the things I said to you.
Interpretation 2 The Lord is calling out to many who have fallen away, backslidden for one reason or another. He is reaching out with all compassion and tender mercies to you. The desire you have been sensing to get back in your place with the Lord has actually been the Holy Spirit who has been watching over you. He has been tenderly and lovingly nurturing you and comforting you, getting you to the place where you can forgive yourself and others. The Lord has been waiting for you to return to your first love and He has been sure to reserve a place for you at His table, but you must not resist His Spirit any longer...yield to His love and receive His forgiveness. He has set aside a season for you of fellowship with Him and Him alone. You have His undivided attention and He has your best interest at heart. It is His goodness that is drawing you. He loves you and knows you by name. Revelation 3:8, "I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it... Revelation 3:20, "Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come into him and dine with him, and he with Me. "To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. 2 Corinthians 6:2, ...Behold, now is the acceptable time; behold, now is the day of salvation. Father,
Thank you for sending your precious Spirit to live in me, to comfort and encourage me. Holy Spirit give me the grace to step out with bold assurance to be the ambassador Christ has made me to be and many will come into the kingdom. Jesus, thank you for always receiving me with loving compassion, saving a place for me at Your table and never shutting You door to forgiveness on me.
In Jesus' name. Amen.
