Dreams, Does God Still Use Them Today?

whoís voice that probably was? Becauserepparttar last one had been so accurate, I did pray. The next day I drove with my children several hours away, we were going through Seattle onrepparttar 127056 freeway at 65 mph and drove under several overpasses. I donít know for sure what happened but I believe someone from on top ofrepparttar 127057 overpass through a huge rock over, it wasrepparttar 127058 size of a full human hand and came from above, not from a truck kicking up a rock. I had cars on both sides of me and saw this rock flying right at me and again began praying (in a scream). The rock hitrepparttar 127059 very center top of my windshield, both my children and myself saw it hitrepparttar 127060 glass (close torepparttar 127061 roof however). Miraculouslyrepparttar 127062 windshield held, and I did not drive into anybody else. There was NO crack, or chip inrepparttar 127063 glass whatsoever. Later, we did discoverrepparttar 127064 metal right aboverepparttar 127065 glass where it had hit had a fairly large dent in it. We also learnedrepparttar 127066 week prior, repparttar 127067 exact thing happened to another motorist inrepparttar 127068 area, andrepparttar 127069 person was killed. Again I give all glory to God for saving me. The last dream God gave me I was reading (inrepparttar 127070 dream) my hometown newspaper, and was just flipping through it and ran acrossrepparttar 127071 obituary section and read how a classmate I had known since kindergarten was killed in a car accident. This person however is still alive, so I knew this to be another warning to pray for his protection, safety and life, and more specifically about any car accidents. Iíve asked several others to be praying for him as well. He is still well and alive, and I know that is because ofrepparttar 127072 Lord. I am nothing but one ofrepparttar 127073 Lordís children, there is nothing special about me. Itís about a special God. Any of us can ask Him to give us dreams from Him, to ask Him to give usrepparttar 127074 recall to remember those, to ask if we could serve Him in this capacity. Then when He gives something, trust Him with that, and pray. He is a kind, loving Father, and I know He gave those warnings because it was not those individualís time to go. He would also not have shown those things if He werenít able and willing to change them through prayer. He forewarned of those accidents, yet life was spared.

Iíve found this to be a way of life now. He is able to do this whenever He desires because Iíve invited him to be welcomed to do so. Sometimes dreams can give you direction for your life (from Him), encouragement, correction or whatever else He wishes to communicate to you. Itís all at His loving hands. I would encourage you to invite Him to work through your ďnight seasonsĒ as He sees fit.

Peace of God

Written by Valerie Garner

Continued from page 1

Byrepparttar time my friend arrived, I was truly at perfect peace. It was so strong, she even felt and sensed it, it was that tangible. We actually (and this is a miracle) had some tea, and had some laughs. I had times that I slipped from His peace, but when I turned again to Him for help, it was there for me. I found forrepparttar 127055 most part God carried me through that very difficult time, and guided my life's choices by His peace. Ultimately, we did reconcile. This type of peace is not based on circumstances. I had some ofrepparttar 127056 most precious times in my life from this place of peace. I really desire to live my whole life, from this place of His peace.

The old hymn called "It is well with my soul" was written by a man in a ship, crossingrepparttar 127057 Atlantic and stopping atrepparttar 127058 exact place where (I believe) 5 of his children had just drowned. He could sing with his whole heart in that moment of devastation "It is well with my soul".

That isrepparttar 127059 peace of God.

Sometimes God speaks (He createdrepparttar 127060 world into existence by speaking)to calmrepparttar 127061 storm (Mark 4:39), and sometimes He speaks peace to calm His people. 1 Corinthians 14:33 states, "For God is notrepparttar 127062 author of confusion, but of peace..." This kind of peace, drives out confusion.

What's really special is that God WANTS to give this peace to anybody who wants to receive it. It is an open invitation to ALL. It was for this reason that God sent His only son, Jesus Christ to atone for our sins onrepparttar 127063 cross. This reconciles us to Him, becoming that bridge to God where we can then receive His peace and forgiveness. When I received Jesus and came into this peace forrepparttar 127064 first time, it felt like "coming home." I also hadrepparttar 127065 feeling like, "This is what I've been looking for my WHOLE life, but could never put my finger on." What an immense burden lifted off to KNOW I finally was at peace with God.

This is a very simple thing to do if you wish to receive His love, peace, life eternal and all that He has. I'm going to tell you how because nobody ever told me and it caused me to search for years to find that part out. It's just offering up a simple prayer from an honest heart (you can pray this alone, and say it in your own words, but here'srepparttar 127066 gist of it), "Jesus, I want to know you are real, I want to come into peace with you and my Heavenly Father, please forgive all my sins I've ever committed against you, I want to be clean and made whole. I need Your love and peace in my life. I receive what you did for me. Thank you. Amen."

As I close this, I would like to leave you with a few more words of Christ, John 14:27 "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you, not asrepparttar 127067 world gives, give I unto you, Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."

Lastly in 2 Thessalonians 3:16 "Nowrepparttar 127068 Lord of peace himself give you peace always by all means, The Lord be with you all."
