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!

IN MY DREAMS – Poetry

January 12, 2017

In my dreams
I hear You call
I see the writing
On the wall

Mysteries
Unfold to me
Showing me
What soon will be

Sometimes stories
Of my past
Explains things that
I could not grasp

Forward, backward
All between
You talk to me Lord
In my dreams

Showing me
Just how You feel
Bringing forth
Some things so real

Until I know You
I can’t see
Your loving kindness
Good thoughts towards me

You are my Father
Love so deep
Denied in life
But meant to be

Pour out Your Spirit
In this hour
So hungry hearts
Can know Your power

Intimacy
With God complete
As we humble
At Your feet

Pure hearts cry
Will sure be met
Promises
Will still be kept

Just like Joseph
In the prison groaned
God had a plan
To soon be shown

Hold on now
The hour is here
Things unknown
Will soon be clear

Rain from heaven
Holy fire
Will soon burn up
All vain desire

Return again
To your first love
Feel His closeness
From above
