I believe many of us as Christian learn about what is root issue in our life. What is root issue? Lets examine a plant, it has its stem to support, it has its roots to absorb all the nutrients in order to grow. In another word, if your plant is green and fruitful, then the roots must be receiving good nutrients and sunlight. Now, imagine the plant is your spiritual life.
God does reveal our root issues in dreams. How does it normally being reflected in the dream? Dreams that often carry the elements of your ex-husband, ex-boy or girlfriend, ex-bosses, ex-church, your high school/primary school, grandparents, your old house and more. Often the Lord will show you in the dream when all these characters appear, it often relate to you root issues. Root issues can be related to spiritual inheritance which you have no recollection of what your ancestors has sinned or cursed. It can also be related to your life journey since birthed.
We have a dreamer who often dreamed about her grandmother. And in a number of times the dreams reflected the similar environment with her grandmother. The interpretation reflected that she has fearful root since young and it came from the grandmother. Dreamer confessed that her grandmother in fact practise witchcraft. When she was young her parents let her stayed with her grandmother for a period of time. She recalled that her grandmother was a very nice person who cooked and took care of her very well. But the dreamer shared that she has this unexplainable fear rooted in her whenever she was with her grandmother.
Matthew 3:10 (NIV) “The axe is already at the root of the trees, and every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire.”
We need to deal with our root issues when being revealed by God. Matthew 15:13 (NIV) “He replied, “Every plant that my heavenly Father has not planted will be pulled up by the roots.” Plant in good roots will enable our spiritual life to bear good fruits and to glorify God’s name.
Deeper spiritual inheritance roots which in relation with ancestors sinned against God will require deeper revelation and cleansing from God. Often this type of roots, we have no memories of what our ancestors has done, we can only choose to trust God when being revealed and take it to the cross.
Dreams in the form of nightmare or night terror often associated to spiritual inheritance roots as well. What our ancestors or parents have worshipped in other believes it will manifest in our life journey.
My own grandmother has placed a curse upon my life when I was first birthed out from my mother’s womb. I remember I don’t like my grandmother whenever she came by to visit when I was young. After I received Christ, one day God revealed to me. I forgive my grandmother and cut off the curse she has said over my life. I asked my mother whether that is true that my grandmother has cursed me when I was first birthed out in the hospital, my mother confirmed to me, and my mother disliked what my grandmother has said.
Go deeper, if you are willing to deal with your hidden root issues, invite God to reveal to you thru dreams. You must be ready to deal with it, if you are unable to accept what has been revealed to you, there is no fruitfulness towards such practise. We all have our root issues, whether is thru spiritual inheritance which is hidden from us or thru our own life journey since birthed.
Romans 11:16 (NIV) “If the part of the dough offered as firstfruits is holy, then the whole batch is holy; if the root is holy, so are the branches.”
