Have you ever been awakened by a dream, one that seemed like you were falling? Of course in the dream you were falling but you never hit the bottom. It seems as though something caught you or woke you up. That to me was God. Or perhaps you were dreaming and you felt like something was sitting on your chest and you were fighting and gasping for air. In both scenarios it seemed so real, you could not help waking up a little shaken. My theory on that is when this takes place we should immediately call on God. God thank you for waking me. God thank you for wrapping me in your arms. Lord I praise your name on high. That is how I would approach it. Some just shake it off. Go back to sleep and chalk it up to a bad dream
Ecclesiastes 5:7 For in many dreams and in many words there is emptiness. Rather, fear God.
