Dream: Help drowning believers

In 2019 God gave me a dream showing that I must help believers as many will not know how to navigate through the tough times ahead.

This was a personal message to me. But I hope as you read this, you will be stirred up to take your calling seriously and diligently use what God has deposited in you to help others.

I saw in the dream that I’m on a bus with my dad. There were other people too on the bus. As the bus starts climbing over a bridge, it starts raining heavily. The bus then moves towards the left and I knew it’s going to go off the bridge into the waters.

I told my dad to get ready to get out and swim as soon as the bus plunges into the waters. The bus falls into the river. I was able to find my way to the surface. I saw my dad struggling and swam towards him, grabbed him and I reached the bank of the river.

As I looked back and I saw people were drowning. I was wondering if I should help or not. I thought if I jump in, they would pull me down.

We then walked and reached the bridge. Ambulances had arrived on the scene. One of the people asked, “Is this all, where are the other people?”. I was silent. I didn’t want them to know that I let people drown.

The Interpretation

The bus represents the church, the believers. Something happens in the world that affects the believers and they fall into waters of despair, doubt, fear, and unbelief. There are supposed to swim but find themselves drowning.

Because of my calling, gifting, and training in the Lord, I can help believers. But I’m thinking that I don’t want to get involved in their lives as it will become a burden. They should know how to swim and manage on their own.

I understood what God was trying to show me through this dream. I was thinking what could possibly happen that will make the church go off the bridge into the waters of doubt, fear, and unbelief.

A few months later COVID-19 struck. I noticed that while I’m staying cool, calm, and composed, others are getting affected by what they’re hearing and seeing in the news.

I’m not sure if I have communicated enough through my writings or in person, but I hope I can paint a perspective that will help believers to walk in faith and absolute confidence in God’s word rather than the facts they see and hear.

We don’t know what’s coming next, but when deep darkness covers the earth, we believers should be expecting God’s glory to rise over us. We can live without fear and navigate these times with a super different perspective.
