At church on Sunday, in response to a different conversation altogether, Corey read Isaiah 35:8-10, which reads:
8 A highway shall be there, and a road,
And it shall be called the Highway of Holiness.
The unclean shall not pass over it,
But it shall be for others.
Whoever walks the road, although a fool,
Shall not go astray.
9 No lion shall be there,
Nor shall any ravenous beast go up on it;
It shall not be found there.
But the redeemed shall walk there,
10 And the ransomed of the LORD shall return,
And come to Zion with singing,
With everlasting joy on their heads.
They shall obtain joy and gladness,
And sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
Minda looked at me with eyes wide, as she pointed at the scripture in her bible. And I looked...oblivious, according to her.
Later I realized, that perhaps this was more of God's answer.
According to this scripture, the Highway of Holiness will not have danger or the unsaved.
Obviously the dream highway I was on was not the Highway of Holiness: it was filled with danger--not lions, but careening traffic and detours that made no sense.
What about the car I followed across the shortcut? Was that driver a fool, like me, looking for the Highway of Holiness. Or an angel who led me to the other side?
And on the other side, I found my wife, helping to build the Highway of Holiness. I looked to her for help, in my dream. And it can be said that in my life, she helped lead me to Christ.
I love it when God talks with me.
