I’m sure that right now with the crisis we are in, many minds are filled with scary thoughts. Our God knows our beginning from our ending, and He knew that we would go through days like these. This is why He told us we should fill our minds with beautiful things.
[ Meditate on These Things ] Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. Philippians 4:8
Like many out there, I can no longer walk the trails as I would like, and see the beautiful creatures. So now I’m more focus on seeing them in my night dreams, and we all know how dreams can take on a life of their own.
I saw a flock of big white birds flying in the sky and then I saw others in the water as I walked along a hill looking over. I was so excited to see these beautiful creatures and even more excited because I didn’t need a birding lens to see these creatures up close.
One of the other creatures I saw in my dream was a snake and I was able to look at it with no fear. At first I was a bit hesitant but then I was told it could no longer do any harm. It had lost all its potency.
Snake Or Satan:
So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. Revelations 12:9
In the bible we know that a snake represents our arch enemy satan. We also know that he is now extremely busy seeking to destroy many.
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. 1 Peter 5:8
But a day is coming when this enemy that now kill and destroy will lose his potency for good.
Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, holding in his hand the key of the abyss and a heavy chain. 2 He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent—that is, the Devil, or Satan—and chained him up……. Revelation 20:1-2
So for now as we see much death and destruction around us, and many are consumed with fear, this is a great time to turn our minds heavenward and to connect with God through prayer. This is the time ….(and we do have the time right now) to step out in faith and call out to our merciful God. He is listening and He hears our every cry. He is the only one that can bring lasting peace to our hearts and minds. Though we may not escape the pandemic, He will stay by our side through it all.
And God’s peace, which is far beyond human understanding, will keep your hearts and minds safe in union with Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7
