QUICKENED DREAM FROM READER:  Unorthodox Training  3/02/09

A reader shared her dream with me today.  She was boarding a train and behind her was a RUSSIAN ORTHODOX PRIEST. She turned around and looked at him and said, "You must have a ticket to ride this train." He didn't have a ticket and she knew it was a special train.



Rushing and traditional ways are not allowed in the training of the Lord.  He is going the slow route in His training and He is very creative.  God will use unorthodox, unconventional ways to teach us and we will walk them out in experiences so that we dont forget them. 



Precious, when I have ordained for you to walk through something instead of being delivered from it, it is so that you may learn through experience.  What you walk out is a better training than reading from a book, attending a class or hearing a sermon on the subject.  What others have learned and passed on is always helpful wisdom and you can avoid many mistakes in life by listening.  However there are some things that are not imparted without living them out in real life. 


You will learn how to make good decisions by seeing that everything caused really does have an effect.  When you walk out the effects of your decisions, you will not only learn wisdom and understanding, but you will have developed your character and fruits of My Spirit. 


As you seek My help, your faith grows as you participate.  Most of all, as you partner with Me in these issues, I promise to reveal Myself to you in ways you would have never known Me otherwise.  Our intimacy together is so much deeper than any method of second hand learning.  Trust Me that I have our very best in mind when I lead you to live the lesson.


Isa 3:10-11 NKJV

Say to the righteous that it shall be well with them, For they shall eat the fruit of their doings. Woe to the wicked! It shall be ill with him, for the reward of his hands shall be given him.


Ps 128:1-2 NKJV

Blessed is every one who fears the LORD, who walks in His ways.  When you eat the labor of your hands, you shall be happy, and it shall be well with you.







DREAM: I was in school and a teacher was trying to explain why we were learning via experience instead of just head knowledge. As she was explaining, she asked me if I knew how to such and such. I had never heard of the such n such so I said no. Then she said to make her example simpler, she asked if I knew how to paint a box. I thought about the steps I would take to paint a box. My first thought would be to paint the bottom of the box, then I realized that would be stupid and then it would be wet. So I backtracked my thoughts and told myself to start on the inside of the box. At that point I had decided I knew how to paint a box and told her yes.

Then she was explaining how we need to learn things by experience, and asked me why. I was explaining that experience keeps up from skipping necessary steps, learning more depth about issues, keeps us from accidental conclusions, we move slower thus more responsible in the doing of it.

HEARD: Greater understanding. Rainbow. Leading a horse. Training.

COMMENT: In application, rather than just telling us His answer, He is taking us the long way around answers we are searching for, in order to train us for future things. This training will keep us from making mistakes in the future and we will become more responsible.





QUICKENED PHRASE: I heard and forgot, I saw and remembered, I did and understood.

QUICKENED CALENDAR: Jeffy from Family Circus is in the midst of a very messy room and says, Mom, Im just learning by doing!





HEARD: Salt. Lesson number one, keep it closed.

DREAM: I had an incoming tide dream where a destructive wave came in unexpectedly.

DREAM: I was telling people that sometimes we have to learn by experience, instead of being just told. Because we learn it better first hand, plus we remember it better.

UPDATE: I came down with the flu the next day and was sick for 1 week. I felt it was a rebuke for watching carnal TV the night before.




HEARD: I want to follow. I want to lead. A leader learns by experience. Doing it. Stay calm. Were going somewhere.
