The Lord gave me a dream about my pastor’s wife and myself.
Here is the dream the Lord gave me. I told her about the dream, wondering if she might have some insight, but I did not receive the interpretation from the Lord until after.
We were both at a prayer convention type of conference. We were at the hotel and were both staying in the same room. We were sleeping in the same bed. She was praying for me, and after, I said in excitement, “Can I pray for you?” Then I ran around to her side of the bed and knelt beside her. When I started to pray, I actually started to sing over her prophetically. Suddenly triggered, she said, “Oh no,” and waved me off. I wasn’t sure what I did wrong, but I figured I must have done something wrong, so I went back to my side of the bed and went to sleep.
Here is the interpretation of the dream the Lord gave me.
‘The pastor’s wife in your dream represents an older generation before; they have become comfortable with a routine, but their routine will not fit my new thing.’
I felt from the Lord there is no condemnation in that. It actually comes from a place of honor. They have been faithful in plowing and sowing seed for a very long time. It made me feel so thankful I could participate in reaping the harvest they have labored over for so long and stood in the gap for. The Lord honors their faithfulness.
It’s a lot like when I was managing and working at one company for many years. I had moved up to GM, I was good at what I did, and it was easy for me. When I switched companies, it was the same position but in a different area. It was like going from making burritos to making pizzas. Even though I had managerial skills to bring to the table, I felt out of place and uncomfortable making pizzas because it was a new thing for me. I knew how to interview correctly so I could figure out who was the right fit for our team. I knew how to develop a strong and healthy team. I knew how to bring corrections that brought growth and healthy development. Even though I had all these managerial strengths and my staff relied on me to head up a strong team, I was also relying on them to be patient with me until I mastered pizza making.
In the dream, it was the word triggered. I am not describing the reaction I saw in the dream, but I knew the reaction was the word triggered. The Lord had me look up the definition of “trigger.”
1. released, initiated, or set off by a trigger
2. occurring in response to a stimulus typically perceived as negative or harmfulMerriam Webster Dictionary
He also highlighted a symptom of feeling triggered, which is feeling a loss of control. In this coming revival, one generation may feel a loss of control, but the Lord wants them to understand that he is in it and to learn to recognize between the voice of fear that satan brings and the voice of the Holy Spirit asking us to do a new thing. If we humble ourselves and pray, the Holy Spirit will reveal what is true and what is not of him.
After she is triggered, she waves me off, saying, “Oh no,” and shakes her head. I said, “Oh.” I pulled back, stopped praying, and thought I must’ve done something wrong. I went back to bed.
You represent the younger generation coming alongside the older generation, wanting to participate in this revival. Excited about the new, but when she waves you off, and you wonder if you did something wrong, represents that the younger needs the older generation’s wisdom in this revival.
Finally, the bed is a marriage bed. The Lord is marrying the generations together in this revival. The generation before needs the younger generation to call in the new move. The younger generation needs the wisdom of the older, more experienced generation. God is marrying us in this end-time move of the Holy Spirit.
We were at a prayer conference. I believe we are to usher this revival with prayer. We are to pray about how we can partner with the Holy Spirit to participate with each other effectively. To pray that we will honor each other and the way the Holy Spirit desires to marry us to work together to participate with him in this end-time revival.
This dream is not knocking on my pastor’s wife or myself, but it is simply a representation of generations within the body of Christ and how the Lord wants to marry us in the end time revival to be effectual and perfect, lacking nothing.
“My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.”James 1:2-5
