Legacy vs Lust.
I had this pretty cool dream where an angel walked into my room.
before that though, in the dream, I was in a jungle. there was a human-sized entity coming after me that was formed entirely out of lust; it looked like slime and tar. this creature wanted me very badly, but I resisted it. I was never afraid, I remained calm the whole time.
I returned home. I was standing, facing away from the door and looking in my phone when this tall, intimidating and powerful angel walked up behind me, into my room. in the dream I remember there was great emphasis on the fact that I was looking at something innocent.
I was glad that I wasn't looking at any booties or anything. imagine doing that and getting caught by angel.
so I turn around, and the angel says "you're about to go to the next level. you're entering into a great season of blessing."
I just looked. in my mind, however, I shrugged it off. I had gotten so tired of hearing these churchy buzzwords that I just stood there.
so the angel looked at me deeper, read my mind and responded out loud in a very serious tone: "NO. you do not understand..." and the angel repeated the exact same message, this time even more sternly. it was then that it sunk into my heart. the angel left.
and after I woke up, I received a phone call about a very rare opportunity that could launch me further into my destiny.
so my takeaways from the dream:
we want God to bless us, but does our lifestyle match up with what we desire? living in sin does not lessen God's love for us, but it does increase access for the enemy to mess up our lives. many times, we do it to ourselves.
always be ready to be caught doing the right thing.
live a clean life and have a clean conscience. (Hebrews 10:22-23)
your biggest battles will lead to your biggest blessings.
it is possible for satan to know more about what God is doing in your life more than you do. so he will try to fight you with addictions, cycles, depression, emotions, bad habits, and even the twisting of God-given desires, to destroy you and your destiny.
towards the end of last year and the beginning of this year, I've experienced an increase of lusty women coming after me. girls from twitter, girls from church, girls from everywhere. young girls, older married women, it's wild.
when you are in Christ, you win.
2 Corinthians 5:17
