I have always been a dreamer unlike my husband who says he never dreams or that he never remembers the content if he does. While not everyone dreams, not every dream we have is prophetic either. But we clearly see throughout Scripture how God spoke to His servants through dreams. And in my opinion, when you have a dream from God, you know the difference because it stands out! This was one of the first ways I can recall God communicating with me since my single days. Besides verses jumping out of the Bible and reassuring me I am getting what His Spirit wanted to communicate with me, I loved waking up in the morning recalling and trying to interpret a dream I had. Back in those days I did not yet journal like I do now. But ever since I started journaling, dreams from God also became more frequent. There are times when I know I am seeing a vision through my dreams as I am in a sleep/wake state. I can reason clearly in my mind like when awake, looking at every detail of the vision, yet being asleep. At other times the dream happens while I am definitely fast asleep and usually I wake up after the dream is over. Then I lay there thinking about the content of the dream, sometimes I grab my iPhone and voice record it right away. And there are seasons too where I get no dreams from God, just silly dreams we all have from time to time. Dreams are a very effective tool God uses in communicating with us, our minds are at rest and there are no distractions in receiving a message from Him. But many times it takes help from other sources or other people to interpret those dreams. We see that in Scripture also. I have invested in a dream interpretation guide and have found it very helpful in the beginning. I will share some dreams in times to come and hope these inspire you also. I want to also encourage you to ask God to speak to you through dreams and then have a journal available to record those because when we do get dreams from God, it is an important message, wether for ourselves or for others.
