Not sure where this belongs if anywhere so sorry about that. Had to tell someone so I could get other opinions. I'm a new Christian and had been feeling some doubt. God has done so much for me, and I doubted whether what I did was enough. Is my faith strong enough? Did I pray that prayer correctly? Not only that but deep down in my heart do I really believe. Was my tiny bit of faith enough to save me? So I took it to God and said, "Test my faith. I've had it so easy in life. It's easy to believe there is a God out there when you've been so blessed. You know more than even me what I need to get me over this. Please do whatever it takes to get this doubt out of my head." I figured a test of faith would work, and I'm not sure, but I think God gave me the opposite. So the dream... It started like a normal dream for me. I was in this building and had spilled some cat food. I wanted to know if they wanted me to throw it out or keep it. I went looking for someone to ask and about that point the dream changed and I was talking to who in my dream I knew was Jesus. We talked but I have no clue what about. It didn't stick at all. The only thing I remember was he said, "I love you" and then he patted me on the back or something idk. It was weird because usually I can't stand being touched but for some reason it wasn't awkward. Whether from God or not, the feeling I had in the dream and after I woke up was amazing. I fell asleep that night listening to the audio Bible. I think that may have influenced my brain or something, but it was just so out of the normal for me. I've never dreamed of anything to do with the Bible despite falling asleep listening lots of times. I'm really in shock and don't know what happened. Any thoughts? and sorry for the text wall. I wrote everything I thought was important.

Your dream is in the same area mine was the night I prayed with a broken heart to Whoever isin Charge. I fell into a very deep sleep and dreamed a dream with a message much like the one in your dream.

The first part, the cat food may be your faith, and spilling it, you thought you may have lost it, but frankly that was really not the case, and you could never pick it up agains, no, it is Jesus all of the way.

He told you personally that He loves you. You already have faith, and knowing He told you this you must realize that is all you need know and believe. That is a wonderful dream, and becauseI believe our Lord and Savior, I believe your dream is directly from Him.

Faisth grows with practicing our faith as besst we are given to do. You cannot pick it up again and put it in the bag, nope, it never left you, and it will grow. Keep praying, reading the Word and associating with others whom you believe belive…......You are very blessed...

Very interesting for sure. God does speak through dreams so it isn't uncommon to have that experience even though I myself have never been able to remember much of my dreams.

Doubts are normal for new and old believers. Some doubts can be answered by fellow believers, some by a God revelation like your dream, or some we will just not know in this life.

In a judicial case they have something called circumstantial evidence and direct evidence. Direct evidence is the kind of experience you had. A direct experience with God. Regular dreams do not create the kind of feelings you had. Circumstantial evidence is all the surrounding evidence for God that is basically like a puzzle.

Each piece of evidence fills in the picture. You eventually get enough in place to see and know what the picture is even though you haven't figured out all of the puzzle. The gaps you may plug in as life goes on but eventually there are gaps that will not be filled in. But by you having the surrounding knowledge gives you the confidence and assurance to have faith that the remaining peices wouldn't distort the image of God.

"I can only share my experience from 'this side of the glass'. Now over two decades since
God came into my life by a spiritual 'event'. I have never experienced a 'God dream'.
Often in my 'quiet time' of prayer and meditation, revelations have come about, that on my own
would never have thought of. Point being, I believe the Holy Spirit has 'enlightened' my life
of things that have truly allowed a better path than my own. I believe awake and spiritually
'aware' the Divine Spirit comes to us to help in living life in the now. The subconscious mind
can be a hiding place for anxiety, a source of creativity of untold 'worldly' illusions and imagination.
A spiritual revelation helps an individual come to terms with life in the now."
