How important are dreams? What do they mean or do they mean anything? Why do some people dream and some don’t? Where do they come from? So many questions, where are the answers? I’ve heard it said “if you eat late, it will give you crazy dreams”, but; is that really true? Joseph had a dream, in fact he had two; both eluded to a time when Joseph would be exalted over his brethren. It was because of his dreams his brothers sold him into slavery.
He found himself in Egypt where he was imprisoned for a crime he didn’t commit, but; the hand of God was on his life. The Pharaoh had a dream which caused him great distress and no one could tell him what it meant, however; he felt it was important to know the meaning. It was told Pharaoh of the Hebrew slave in the prison who could interpret dreams, enter Joseph. After giving God the credit of interpretation, he made plain the dream; a warning of things to come.
Gods favor was on Josephs life, it was through the famine that his dream was realized and his brothers bowed down before him, not knowing who he was. He through the mercies of God changed his whole family history. Daniel had a dream, a revelation of things to come. He saw things that he couldn’t understand. Daniel was a man of prayer so he called on his God for understanding.. He was instructed to write in a book the things he saw then seal the book for it was not for his time but a time to come.
Acts 2:17 tells us “in the last days, God says; I will pour out my spirit on all people, your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams.” There’s the answer, God gives us dreams or does He just awaken the spark of Himself He placed in us when He whispered our being into existence. Every good and perfect gift comes from above, it is through dreams that our realities are sometimes realized.
When you give the reigns of your life to the Holy Spirit and follow His leading the dreams God has for you shine through and He is glorified. Whether you dream big or small, your dreams are a gift of love from your heavenly Father, don’t let them go; hold on to your dreams.
