God interacts with us in various ways. The response is yes if you're wondering if God sends us messages through dreams. “So it shall come to pass after that, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh; your sons and daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, and your young men shall see visions,” according to the Bible (Joel 2:28). They may have scriptural significance because God consciously communicates to us through them. If you want to learn more about how God communicates with us through dreams, keep in mind that God uses these signals to disclose His plan for your life. Pay close attention to what He's doing. He might be talking to you right now and you're not even aware of it. We will connect with God in a new way and live in His meaning when we understand what He is saying to us. Here are seven major dreams that God might be giving you.
A Dream to Wake You Up
“In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep comes on people while they slumber in their beds...” says Job 33:15 of the Bible. This single verse in the Bible says a lot. A dream is first and foremost a glimpse of the night. A dream happens when men fall into a deep sleep, according to the verse. A vision, according to the Bible, happens while a man is alive, while a dream occurs while he is unconscious. Some dream researchers believe that we dream constantly while sleeping, but that we only recall our dreams just before waking up. This will actually align with the Bible in many instances where men recall a dream that jolted them awake.
A Dream of Caution
God will use dreams to alert you about impending events. This may be a terrible situation you're about to face or a toxic situation in your life that He knows about. Although dreams may alert us of impending risk, we must exercise caution and avoid being too reliant on them. Some people expect to be guided by them on a regular basis, which can lead to deception and errors. You must be able to distinguish between a dream of God and a dream of the flesh. Our mind's attempt to lead us away from God's values and precepts will result in false dreams. False dreams, in reality, can carry the darkness' own prophetic messages. Soulish dreams, in particular, speak to the fleshly impulses of the heart.
A Dream For Instruction
God not only opens our ears, but also seals instruction in our dreams, alerting us to our flaws, advising us in the wrong direction, and providing guidance on how to better move forward from these circumstances. “He will talk in their ears and terrify them with warnings,” the Bible says (Job 33:16). In the same way that a seal is used to create an imprint in wax on a book, God instructs by visions, imprints upon the soul, and lasting impressions. We can gain a lot of knowledge from these instructions. All we have to do is be willing to listen to what He has to say. “All Bible Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to show us what is right and to make us understand what is wrong with our lives,” says Second Timothy 3:16. It corrects us when we make mistakes and shows us how to do the right thing.” A Dream to Reveal Something You Couldn't See Before
Dreams may have a strong resemblance to reality. You might even wake up angry, sad, or afraid, but after a while you remember it was just a dream and go back to sleep. “It will be as when a hungry man dreams – and behold, he is eating; But when he awakens, his hunger is not fulfilled, or as when a thirst man dreams – and behold, he is drinking; But when he awakens, behold, he is faint, and his thirst is not quenched,” says Isaiah 29:8. You may have had a dream about food or drinking, but when you wake up, you are either hungry or thirsty. That is your dream's true. It appeared to be genuine, but it was not. The same is true of visions; they may appear to be real in our minds but are not; nevertheless, God may be attempting to communicate with us through that vision.
A Dream to Correct Your Listening
God may be giving you a dream to help you hear what He's saying to you in a different way. It is normal for people to be resistant to God's messages and dismiss what He is trying to teach them. We aren't really open to hearing God's word because, much of the time, we close our ears and don't take the time to feel the Holy Spirit tugging at our hearts due to our busy and hectic schedules. God will talk to us when we set aside time for prayer and reflection, but He can also speak to us when it is inconvenient, such as when you can barely hear yourself thought. We must, however, be prepared. God bypasses the shell that surrounds our heads, which can make us deafeningly deafeningly deafeningly deafeningly deafeningly deafeningly deaf The next step is to listen to what the Spirit is saying.
A Dream to Overcome Self-Esteem
By definition, pride is a feeling or deep pleasure derived from one's own accomplishments, the accomplishments of those with whom one is closely associated, or from widely admired qualities or possessions. Our sinful thoughts are hidden behind pride. It's easy to be fooled when we hide behind our pride. Even if we haven't succumbed to temptation, we frequently discover during our sleep that we are still fighting sin in our hearts. Since dreams are often created from our minds' thoughts and images, they often expose the sin in our hearts that our conscious minds fail to acknowledge and disclose. In the end, God wants us to be dead to sin and not allow it to rule our bodies, souls, and minds.
A Dream to Tear Down Our Self-Defense Barriers
Our subconscious minds are the ones that create our dreams. As a result, they typically avoid our defensive mechanisms as well as our preconceived ideas about our strengths and weaknesses. We often create barriers that conceal our true selves. We could not have received the grades we desired, gotten the job we desired, or won the competition for which we had prepared. We were embarrassed by the fact that we had let others or ourselves down. We make excuses or blame others because we don't want others to see our flaws or shortcomings. The reality is that the barriers we build often prevent truth and growth opportunities from entering. God may be attempting to break down the self-defense barriers that prevent us from seeing our true potential in a specific dream. Our dreams lead us straight to the facts.
“We both had dreams...but there is no one to explain them,” Genesis 40:8 says. ‘Do not meanings belong to God?' Joseph asked them. God is the source of all interpretations, including dream interpretations. Right now, the spirit of God is speaking to you through your dreams. We will truly live in His mission when we understand and perceive these signals. Are you prepared to listen to what God has to say to you? You don't want to miss out on something God has to say to you.
