The Beggar in my Dream

The Beggar in my Dream…

I used to go out to share the gospel and give food to the homeless. One night, I dreamt someone begged me to take him with me; he was in bondage and wanted to be free.

There wasn’t room in my car, so I apologized and drove away. As I went, I saw the car growing; there was room. Looking back, I saw a creature pulling the man back into darkness. I missed the opportunity because I decided there was no room.

When I went back into the city, I gave food to a homeless man who said, “Take me with you, I want to get free of alcoholism.” I said, “I’m not leaving you.” We found a Christian to help him. If not for the dream, I might not have pursued it.

An obstacle that keeps us from God’s will is the belief that we don’t have room in our lives; nor in our mind and heart. It doesn’t matter whether there is room. Do God’s will anyway.

Minister; open your life, and your heart to His purposes. He will make room and enlarge your tent. Provide a willing heart, and God will provide the room.

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me. Matthew 25:35-40

Today take time with the Lord. Make room in your heart for the will of God. Look to minister and expect the surprises of God.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
