A few years ago, I had this startling dream about Christmas lights and the presence of the Lord…..
I dreamt the smoke alarm went off in my house.
“Oh no!” I cried to myself,”What have I done?”
I jumped out of bed to see what was the matter.
When I arrived downstairs, I ran to the oven.
Perhaps I left it on? I’ve been known to forget.
But I saw for sure – that was not it.
I walked to my family room and made this discovery.
It was CHRISTMAS LIGHTS! Lots of them!
Covering the floor.
Strings of white lights…
shining brightly, intertwined and tangled.
How I marveled at this unusual sight.
Suddenly I realized.
It wasn’t me – who caused this frightful alarm.
It was the lights, smoking, connected, plugged in –
Abiding in His grace
I WOKE UP
with a smile on my face…..
This was a divine revelation for sure! What a beautiful gift from my Father God! The smoke alarm was not set off because I did something wrong, but because of my flames of passion for Him. Flames so strong, so hot that they were smoking with the presence of God! Lord, please make it so – for you and me! I like this scripture:
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. James 1:17
This advent season is holy.
I pray that you are divinely connected and plugged into Jesus,
shining His wonderful light and smoking with His presence.
For our God is the Father of heavenly lights,
He never changes. His love never fails.
So let us rejoice as we celebrate our Savior’s birth – God’s perfect gift.
It’s almost CHRISTMAS!
