For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
John 3:16 ( NIV)
I struggled to wake up on that mild December morning from a disturbing dream. In the dream, individuals were enclosed in a structure covered with fencing. I could not believe what I was seeing. Some of the individuals appeared lifeless. They were being held hostage. I told them that the year was 2014. They said they knew. I wanted to get help. I ran and then somehow I was in a structure on a large farm. The structure was enclosed under the earth with fencing all around it. I struggled to climb out before a guard could get his weapon. Others were assisting me and giving me instructions as I tried to free myself and climb through part of the fencing that was enclosed with electric wires. As I pulled myself up above the surface of the ground, I could see another taller fence surrounded by barbed wire…
I woke up from the dream wondering what God was trying to show me. I did not thoroughly understand the meaning of the dream. Nevertheless, I began to pray. Perhaps, there are individuals who are being held against their will and are trying to get away from their captors. Perhaps, the Lord is trying to show me that there are individuals who are trying to break free from addictions-drugs, cigarettes, porn, or some other sins or bad habits.
I am thankful to God for sending Jesus to save me so that I can be free from the bondage of sin and death.
Heavenly Father, Help us to receive the gift of eternal life in your son Jesus Christ. Help us to overcome our addictions and bad habits.
