Science Lab God-dream
It was dark and I was trying to make my way across a parking lot. I entered a building and went into a laboratory room. The walls were painted bright yellow.
I set up an easel to draw something and when I began to draw I noticed an electronic, computerized arm coming towards me. It began to attack me and I swerved to avoid being hit. I veered left and right and suddenly I realized it was reaching out to help me complete my drawing.
Next scene: I was sitting on a garage floor getting ready to play a game.
The scene changed.
I was standing in another building. I came into a hallway where a man was standing. I joined him and while we were waiting I heard a woman in labor. I saw another man coming down the hallway holding architectural drawings on blue paper. The plans weren’t opened, but I was able to envision the design of a new office building. As I was thinking of the layout of the building, the robot arm entered. I was the only one to see the arm and unlike others, I could also see that the drawings were for a modern, yellow, and white building.
The “arm” represents God. The arm was there to help me, but I didn’t it see it that way. The more I tried to do things on my own, fear grew. I need to be alert and recognize God is trying to help me. I need to accept His “helping hand,” otherwise I will continue to struggle.
Birthing and birth in dreams tend to represent something new, i.e., ministry, calling, or new journey. For me, this dream reinforces God is present and He is developing (birthing) something new in me. God will give greater insight and discernment to see what He sees. (Discernment in my dreams have been a reoccurring theme and it’s a way God is saying, “pay attention.” It’s important to recognize dreams with a similar message.)
What confirmed the spiritual meaning and ministry from this dream were the colors. Yellow and white are soothing, both representing what is heavenly. Psalm 68:13 White represents purity, righteousness. Psalm 51:7; Matthew 17:2.
Prayer strategy from this dream:
Lord, I worship and give you praise for speaking to me in the night. I thank you that you desire to birth something new and equip me with the necessary tools. Forgive me when I don’t accept your help. I want to recognize when I’m "sitting around and playing games." Lord, open my eyes to see when you are in front of me and when I'm trying to do things through my own efforts. Help me to develop and grow using your plans (architectural drawings). You are so good to give me a glimpse of your vision and building something new and beautiful. I Corinthians 3:10-17. Hebrews 11:10 I thank you, God, that you desire to use me to be a builder in your kingdom.
How does this dream relate to you? Have there been times in your life when God was giving you the necessary tools to complete something, but you didn't? What are you "sitting on"? Do you need to get up and get going?
A promise for me today is found in I Thessalonians 5:24 " Faithful is He who calls you, who also will do it".
Additional reading: I Corinthians 3:9-15 (The Message version beautifully illustrates this dream). Let God equip you in order for Him to use you.
“Or, to put it another way, you are God’s house. Using the gift God gave me as a good architect, I designed blueprints; Apollos is putting up the walls. Let each carpenter who comes on the job take care to build on the foundation! Remember, there is only one foundation, the one already laid: Jesus Christ. Take particular care in picking out your building materials. Eventually there is going to be an inspection. If you use cheap or inferior materials, you’ll be found out. The inspection will be thorough and rigorous. You won’t get by with a thing. If your work passes inspection, fine; if it doesn’t, your part of the building will be torn out and started over. But you won’t be torn out; you’ll survive—but just barely. 16-17 You realize, don’t you, that you are the temple of God, and God himself is present in you? No one will get by with vandalizing God’s temple, you can be sure of that. God’s temple is sacred—and you, remember, are the temple.”
