Possible Manifestation: Missing out on leadership

Post by Paul RT on Wed Dec 08, 2010 10:30 am

I was at a meeting of a sporting or political association and they were reviewing the success or otherwise of teams and their various leaders, including reviewing where the leaders made wrong decisions etc.
I was a notable absence from the leadership team and felt a bit frustrated, but had the humility and maturity to bear this frustration

What were the feelings in the dream Paul? Can you tell me very specifically?

Hi Paul,

I believe those are the focal point of your dream. A Bible verse came to my mind as I was reading.

Lk 14:8 When thou art bidden of any [man] to a wedding, sit not down in the highest room; lest a more honourable man than thou be bidden of him;
Lk 14:9 And he that bade thee and him come and say to thee, Give this man place; and thou begin with shame to take the lowest room.
Lk 14:10 But when thou art bidden, go and sit down in the lowest room; that when he that bade thee cometh, he may say unto thee, Friend, go up higher: then shalt thou have worship in the presence of them that sit at meat with thee.
Lk 14:11 For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.

Sometimes, people might not recognize us, our capacity, our gifts, our abilities, but there is ONE who knows us, with humility in our hearts. I believe it is what matters most, then in God's eyes, we will become great. People may overlooked us, but God never missed to see us. Your dream reveals your spiritual maturity.

I hope this has encouraged you.

God bless.

Thanks Mia and Owen
I believe that the dream relates to a difference of view I have with my Pastor at present.
On the one hand I believe that God is calling me to the role of Elder, and my Pastor now accepts that the church needs to appoint Elders (they currently have none). However, my Pastor feels that God has laid on his heart the names of 3 other people, but not me. Mind you, I believe that those 3 people all have Eldership qualities.
Earlier this year I found my Pastor's position that the church wasn't ready for Eldership then difficult to understand or accept, I now have a peace about this situation, and await more confirmation if God wants me to step into this role, including the timing of this appointment.
That peace was reflected to me in the dream also.

Amen! Sounds like you are right on track.

Question: Do you think your pastor picked three people who will just play ball?

Hi Mia

Quite possibly, after I've challenged him about the lack of Elders, but I'll leave that for the Lord to sort out if it's true.

Thanks for your interest

Paul

I ask that because I felt in my heart that it may be the reason you weren't chosen so pray about it in case God wants his heart to change.

Love,
Mia

Thanks Mia

If the Lord wants His heart to change I'm sure that will happen.

I'm just praying that I will have the Grace to accept either possibility

I really appreciate your interest

Love

Paul

It seems you already do have the grace to accept it.
