5 Joseph had a dream, and when he told it to his brothers, they hated him all the more. 6 He said to them, “Listen to this dream I had: 7 We were binding sheaves of grain out in the field when suddenly my sheaf rose and stood upright, while your sheaves gathered around mine and bowed down to it.”
“Dreams are the perfect way to hear from God. When you are dreaming you are quiet, so you can’t ignore Him. Plus, you are not easily distracted. You’re basically all ears for about 7 hours every night.”
Dreams are super interesting to me. Why do we dream? What does it mean? After looking around I think I have found a few steps we can take to help clear up what our dreams mean to our lives. We see in the verses above that God gives us dreams for a purpose, but how can we better handle them?
- Pray – Talk to God and ask Him why He gave you the dream. What it means. What He is teaching you.
- Listen – God loves when we listen. If we can just try and hear what he has to say, God will be open up to us.
- Write – Dreams are easy to forget, but if you feel God moving in this dream, it could be worth it to write down and reflect further.
The other few steps are to share you dream and just let it be. God will take care of the rest. Tomorrow we will learn more about why God gives us dreams. We can use these few steps with any situation God gives us, not just dreams. Trust that God will guide you through prayer and quiet time.
Has God given me any dreams lately?
What can dreams reveal to me?
Dear Lord, help us to dream. May you guide us to put our dreams into action if we feel called to do so. Amen.
Have a great day!
