WHY DO WE DREAM?
God uses dreams and visions to speak to us, Barbie says. They bring the communications of heaven to earth. God crafts each dream individually and uses them to speak to us in different ways and for different purposes. God reveals His plans and purposes through our dreams and visions. He shows us things ahead of time because God wants to give us a clear vision to see beyond our present state. He also creates dreams so we can see and hear the answers to our prayers. Dreams are a vehicle for bringing a peaceful resolve to the problem areas of life. Righteous people are given advance notice of the future through dreams and visions. This insures that they have plenty of time to prepare and align themselves for success and advancement. Therefore, it seems that the dreams of the righteous are delayed, but the dreams of the wicked happen quickly. God projects images of Himself, His Word, the anointing, angels, and dreams and visions that contain His plans into our spirits, and our spirit records them. This is how we are able to recall spiritual things when they are needed. Dreams rain heavenly wisdom down upon our open hearts so we can receive God’s saving knowledge. God communicates the positives of what He sees in us and God will guide us to make the proper decisions through dreams. God intended that we get to know Him better through this process of discovering the meaning of our dreams.
Dreams reveal hidden issues, to inspire us to greatness, to keep us out of harm’s way, or to provide insight into the world around us. God leads us through a revelatory cycle of dreaming to build a transitional bridge. This connection is where our dreams become the link between His infinite wisdom and our finite thinking. Dreams have an ability to take the dreamer beyond the surface into the deep things of God, into the realms beyond where God’s creative words become spirit and truth. We find answers to life’s questions in our dreams. Dreams can restore us to health through intimacy with God.
Barbie says it takes practice to develop our skills in understanding the spiritual language in dreams and visions. We must rely on the Holy Spirit as our source of revelation, understanding our dreams and visions to gain wisdom, and proper application. God reveals His intimate secrets to us.
In the Bible, Habakkuk 2 tells us one way to process our dreams: to write the dream and make it plain for the dream is for an appointed time and to wait for it. Verses 1-3 say, “I will stand my watch and set myself on the rampart, and watch to see what He will say to me, ‘And what I will answer when I am corrected. Then the LORD answered me and said: ‘Write the vision and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry (NKJV).
The plans, wisdom, and strategies we see and the conversations we hear must be expressed back to God through prayer upon waking. Prayer will cause good dreams to come true and bad dreams to be destroyed. Dreams in which we dialogue with God enable us to gain wisdom. We are shown the actions to take and the words to pray to deliver us from destruction. Dreams reveal God’s plans so we can cooperate with His purposes for our lives.
When the spirit of wisdom enters our heart, it brings knowledge that is agreeable with our soul. Discretion becomes like a sentinel posted at our heart’s gate. Spiritual understanding watches over us to deliver us from the schemes of enemies. When we gain wisdom, she will love and watch over us to help us gain understanding.
