Detained in the Lord’s Presence

I dreamed of a medieval lady who delighted in cutting off her servant’s fingers or hands. She was traveling in a carriage and her husband was riding along on a horse.

The carriage was surrounded by servants. Many of them had stumps. Each time she cut off a hand she put it in a small box and carried it with her. She kept looking into the box.

The servants struggled and were terrified of losing their other hand. They would no longer be able to eat and would die.

I woke up. When I fell back to sleep, I saw the same dream. I asked God three times to explain what He wanted me to see.

We are God’s servants. We use our hands to write. The lady is Facebook. Many have lost a finger by being placed in Facebook jail for hours or days.

We know of those whose hands are cut off. Their pages have been removed. They can no longer write on Facebook.

We fear the same thing happening to us. Those who post something deemed “politically incorrect” find it removed. Or there is a box after their post saying what they shared is untrue.

Fear is how they control people.

I hope you have chosen to follow me here at thisyearsbiblereadingguide.com. I’ve already lost 2 fingers. I could disappear from Facebook at any time.

But God is with me! Twice today He showed me how to live fearlessly!

Doeg was detained in the Lord’s presence. It was part of the plan for him to see David. God set Doeg up to fulfill the first prophecy He gave to Samuel.

1 Samuel 21:7, “Now one of Saul’s servants was there that day, detained in the Lord’s presence. …” Common English Bible

1 Samuel 2:31, “The days are coming soon when I will eliminate both your children and the children of your father’s household. There won’t be an old person left in your family tree.” Common English Bible

I was detained. I know I have been gone for months. I will have to explain it in another post.
