A dream is defined as a series of mental images and emotions occurring during sleep. We all dream in one way or another and to varying degrees. Dreams can mean many things in our lives and there are many things that dreams can signify. There are dreams we call nightmares which are often bad dreams because they are about something unpleasant in our lives. There are also dreams that announce something good.
God can talk to us through dreams or warn us of something to come. The bible says in the book of numbers 12.6 “If there be a prophet among you, I the Lord will make myself known unto him in a vision, and will speak unto him in a dream.”
So, as we can see in this beautiful piece of scripture, we can see that God is saying to Aaron that he speaks in vision and in dreams. God would warn us about what to come or about a danger in front to avoid. And by obeying what God is telling us we can fulfill the purpose of God in our lives.
Another thing I realized is that when we are worried about something we dream a lot about that thing and by the way when we are worried we are not a doer of the word because we do not walk according Philippians 4:6. Because we have anxiety, we dream about the different outcomes of that thing we are worried about. We can equally dream about some activity we did during the day.
There are some dreams which are not good dreams. For example, when we dream of eating in the dream or being given food that is not a good dream. The devil passes through dreams to afflict us. It is therefore important to always remember our dreams or write them down and share them with the pastor the next day.
Personally, God has spoken to me several times through dreams. The last time I remember was before I left Denmark. What the almighty told me eventually came to pass in my life. This confirmed to me that God speaks to us in dreams and visions.
