Walking Tall – A Dream given April 7, 2016

My wife had a dream between the night of April 6 and the morning of April 7, 2016. She woke up in the morning and told me the details:

“I remember being in a big huge room like an auditorium or something and there was a lot of people milling around tables like a big party or something. There were a lot of distractions. A big tall man came in the room and for some reason I wanted to walk around with him. So I did but I was still distracted even though I was a walking with him by all the people around me. My step was out of sync with his. I was walking different than he was and then it became harder and harder to keep walking with him. But he was patient and kept walking with me until I finally realized that it would be easier to walk with him if I walked the way he is walking. So I determined not to get distracted by all the people around me and focus on him and walk the way he was walking. And, then we started to walking together…in the same pattern…and I didn’t notice the people anymore.”

As soon as Shauna started telling the dream, I knew it was from God. The Tall man was Jesus. The distractions are the cares of this world. The walking as He walked is to live as He lived and love as He loved. I am reminded of a little book called “Steps to Christ”. The hope is that the steps TO Christ (our coming to him) become steps WITH Christ (daily walking with Him as Enoch did). She says she didn’t notice the people anymore. This is twofold. When we keep our eyes on Christ, the partying and frivolous cares of this world grow strangely dim. The second application is of a future time when sin and sinners are no more and the righteous will inherit the world made new. I don’t know about you, but I am ever more determined to follow the Leader.

“He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.” – 1 John 2:6
