I had the dream again last night.
Or maybe I should call it a nightmare.
I’m standing in a beautiful century home with many rooms. Everything about the house is stunning from the hardwood floors to the ornate ceilings. It’s furnished with decorative accessories and expensive furniture. It’s the house of my dreams.
However, it houses my nightmares.
I cannot go up the stairs to the upper rooms because of the presence that lives there. It’s an evil presence.
The kind of evil that makes the hairs stand up on the back of my neck.
I am filled with terror to ascend those stairs.
Yet I must.
As I walk up the staircase, my body starts to shiver. My lips quiver. My hands tremble.
Then I feel it.
The evil presence lifts me off the stairs. I am hovering off the ground as I gasp for air. I clench my chattering teeth to hold back my screams.
Yet within my terror, I feel growing courage. My whimpering stops.
“I am a daughter of the King.”
I gain strength.
“I am a Christian. Jesus loves me. He died for me. I belong to Jesus.”
I start to shout.
“Get out! You have no control over me! I belong to Christ!”
I start to laugh through my cries.
“You are defeated! You have no power over me! Jesus is my Saviour! He defeated you! You are nothing!”
My feet are returned to solid ground. The presence leaves.
I don’t know when I will have the same dream again. But I do know that as a Christ-follower all I need to do is speak the name of Jesus and I will be saved.
