The night after arriving home from our first cruise, I had two dreams that, I think, God was using to tell me something. See what you think.
In the first, I had a meeting with a powerful man in a black casual shirt. I understood he was the “boss” of an organization and I was moving into his area and was meeting with him to appease him so we could co-exist. He was cordial but tried to get me to join with him and said I could make a lot of money.
The second dream that night showed me coming into a long narrow room where someone else, unseen to me, had a table set up. On this table were many items like this person was displaying them for sale. I was coming in to set up my own table beside theirs but was going out of my way trying not to disturb them, interfere, or take any of their space.
On awakening, I was aware that both these dreams were about the same thing and I felt God was trying to speak to me. The message I got was that, in this world, we have to live with the devil. He is the god of this world, “In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. 2 Corinthians 4:4“. We shouldn’t be trying to appease him or worrying about taking his space. We should be kicking him out of our space! “Neither give place to the devil. Ephesians 4:27“
I also am reminded that we have authority to trample on the devil, (Luke 10:19), and he is supposed to be under our feet! (Romans 16:20). It’s a different way to look at it. Yes, we’re supposed to be curteous to people we have to co-exist with but not the devil and his cohorts. Whenever Christians learn who they are in Christ, and believe it, the devil will get out of our way! He’ll flee from us, (James 4:7).
