A Taxi driver and a Dream

“Do you ever hear God speak to you?”

A True Story

Last week, A., who is on a church planting team in the south of Middle East got into a taxi. She was on her way to her team mate’s house. As she got into the taxi, she asked the Lord if she should engage the taxi driver in conversation or not. She felt like the Lord said to go ahead, so she launched out with a bold question, “Do you ever hear God speak to you?”

 The taxi driver replied, “Yes, I’ve had many dreams that I feel are from God. There is one that I had recently. I was walking through a vast desert and I was so thirsty and I didn’t know where to find water. I kept walking and up ahead it looked as if there was a person in the distance. I kept walking towards him, hoping he could help me. As I got closer, this person got bigger and bigger until I realized it was God in front of me. I stopped in front of him and knelt down. As I knelt down a spring of water came up out of the ground for me to drink. I was so thirsty and I just kept drinking from this fountain that God miraculously provided.”

A. asked him, “do you know what the dream means?” He said no – so she invited him into her team mate’s house who was a married man. The man on her team was able to sit down with the taxi driver and begin to explain to him what the dream meant. The taxi driver was shocked and amazed. He got so excited that he asked if he could come back to understand more. The team can’t wait to see what God has in store for this young man – praise the Lord for yet another dream in which God is leading people to Himself all over our region!

with you for the Kingdom,

M.

    Hi Lynn Here is hoping you are well. I have been invited to Harpenden to speak at the community meeting on the 5th of June. I have said yes but while I am there if you are there yourself would it possible to schedule some time to talk? I need help in understanding the whole thing of how we (YWAM Liverpool) would go about buying property, the pros and cons of doing it via YWAM Ltd or as YWAM Liverpool. I also want to share with you about the door that God has opened for me and my Swiss friend in Malawi in the area of business and politics. If you know good speakers who could help me teaching in seminars on these subjects, please let me know. Lastly, thanks for your recent blogs. For the first time I have managed to convince my church in Liverpool to pray during Ramadan. Would it be OK for me to share your two last posts? I don’t have to say your name if you don’t want me to, but it’s hit me hard that they are churches that don’t just get it – this whole thing of looking at the Middle East with two eyes, and intercessory prayer that is rooted in the understanding of who God is: the God of the nations. Thank you and keep up the good work of posting these powerful and provocative articles. God’s richest blessings to you and Marty.
