Dreams: Receiving God’s Thoughts in the Night
I love Psalm 139 and what it reveals about our dreams:
How precious are Your thoughts about me, O God.
They cannot be numbered!
I can’t even count them;
they outnumber the grains of sand!
And when I wake up,
You are still with me!
—Psalm 139:17-18 NLT
When we sleep at night we are connecting to the very thoughts of God—the ones He is thinking about us right now. We know that we are with God while we sleep because David says when he wakes up, God is still with him.
If for no other reason than this, we want to understand our dreams because we want to know God’s thoughts. We want to hear what He has to say about us, about life, about His world. We want to listen to His ideas, feel His heart, and understand His point of view. We want to know Him, and listening to our dreams is a simple yet strategic way to do just that.
Understanding how God speaks at night is pivotal in our spiritual growth. By learning God’s heart language of dreams we demonstrate our commitment and desire for deeper intimacy with Him. Becoming proficient in interpreting His night visions is a game-changer in our walk with the Lord. Let the journey begin!
