One of the most famous dreamers in the Bible is Joseph. As you know, he dreamed about being in a position where even his brothers would bow down to him. As you can imagine this didn’t set well with them when he told them about the dream, and at one point they even planned to kill him.
Dreaming gives God an opportunity to communicate with you, even while you are sleeping. Maybe He likes to talk to us in our sleep because we can’t argue with him, or reason in our natural mind.
99% of your dreams are about you.
The dream is most likely about you even if you see something happen to someone else. Dreams can give you guidance, understanding, and warnings.
Your waking life!
Dr. Charity Kayembe teaches that one should line up their dreams with what is going on in their waking life. There is a lot to learn about interpreting dreams, but it is not impossible. Dr. Kayembe has several good teachings on the matter. Here are some tips about dreams:
Know who to share your dreams with and when.
If your dream is about something in the future be aware someone may try to kill your dream by speaking negative words into your life, and please don’t tell yourself, “No”.
God uses your vocabulary, so you will recognize the symbols and words in your dream.
Symbols in your dreams may mean something else to another person, so don’t get hung up on items in the dream, or while referring to a dream language interpretation book.
Pay attention to how your dream made you feel. Excited, scared, happy, etc.
Consider the setting, or location. These are often clues to the meaning.
God talking to me via dreams is awesome. When I think of it, before falling asleep, I invite God to speak to me in the night. By the way, the title of this post came from my wonderful wife. She is such a loving helpmate.
Another area, new to me as in understanding and walking out, is “day dreaming”. It is dreaming about the desires of your heart. Earlier this year I was day dreaming about speaking to other writers. Three days later I received my first invitation to do just that.
Once you have a good, solid, biblical interpretation of your dream then the most important thing to do is follow it, or act on it. Don’t let fear overcome you either, and pray against dreams that might be scary, or nightmarish. It’s exciting to dream, in fact, I think I am going to go take a nap now!
