A THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

A word about dreams.  We most likely all have them.  Some we remember and most we don’t.  They serve a purpose we are told by science that when we reach REM sleep it is restorative sleep.  But is there more?

We see in the Bible that around fifty times God spoke or sent messages to people through dreams and visions.  So yes, to the question if they can be more than a biochemical benefit to only our bodies.

In my studies I have found that Dreams come from 3 places.  1. Soul (mind, will, emotions)  2. God  (Acts 2, Joel 2  ..old, young will dream and have visions)  3. Devil  (Luke 4 : Then the devil, taking Him up on a high mountain, showed Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.”)

We have to be able to judge/analyze them to know where they come from.  It is up to us to accept or reject them.  Certainly the ones from the devil contain fear and torment, failure and dread.  Those we can just toss.

The ones from God always have a message in line with HIs character and His Word.  Sometimes He may reveal the future, warn us of something,  or just invite us into a relationship of seeking and finding.  He loves to interact with us.  It’s sad that most people don’t know that. God made us because He wanted us to be family and have a relationship with HIm.

Thirdly, our souls, or mind, will, and emotions.  You will notice elements of your daily life, a movie you watched, problem you are experiencing etc.  Just normal dreams.

I could go further…..but if you would like to dig deeper you can go to JeanChamblee.com  and find the link to my youtube channel where I do 9 short Biblical teachings on Dreams and Visions.   Enjoy and Have a great day!
