Word Filled Wednesday Acts 18:9-10

The purpose of Word Filled Wednesday is to share the WORD through a photo and a verse.
Acts 18:9-10
One night the Lord spoke to Paul in a vision and told him, "Don't be afraid! Speak out! Don't be silent! For I am with you, and no one will attack and harm you, for many people in this city belong to me."

Receiving guidance and direction from the Lord is coming straight into Paul's slumber. Could you imagine being encouraged while you sleep? What would you think when you woke up? Would you think you'd been "dreaming" and brush it off as just fleeting thoughts? Or will you get up, prayerfully consider the message you've received, and then proceed with new excitement and be ready to take on the world? God gives us his loving guidance ALL THE TIME. It's what we do with it that matters. Don't be afraid to share what you've heard! God is WITH YOU!

Happy Word Filled Wednesday!

It really is interesting to see how many times we are encouraged to "not be afraid" "fear not". Have a wonderful day!

To have boldness to share God's Truth and love with everyone. May I always be so bold to speak up about our Lord and Savior. Great verse and reminder. Have a blessed day.

You know, I think I may have been encouraged in my sleep, by God. Not quite to the extent of Paul, but...

Alexis, you have done this so well. Beautiful. I think the thoughts and dream we receive while we dream are very important and we should pay attention to the emotion it stirs in us.
