The spiritual understanding of a dream


The more you ignore your dreams the more you'll go around the same problems in your life again and again.

God in his quest for us to always be ahead of our adversary provided us with the awesome tool of dreams. Because all things have its origin in the spirit realm, our dreams are spiritual monitors providing us with a view of what is pending in the spirit realm or revealing the root cause of our ongoing natural matters.

During many of my counseling sessions, identifying the beginning and solutions to folks challenges could more than 98% of the time be traced back to their dreams. In other words, their dreams were revealing that they should not take a certain course to avoid future problems or to stay on a certain course that would line them up with their blessings.

Scripture clearly says to us concerning our dreams, "For God speaks once, yea twice, yet man understands not. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls on people as they slumber in their beds" Job 33:14-15. Interestingly enough, it was verse 16, of Job 33 that really exposes God's intent of outfitting us with this awesome tool of dreams and here is what it says, "Then he opens the ears of men, and seals their instruction".

Like I have mentioned on so many occasions and that is, while our physical bodies are at rest and not conscious of our natural world while we're asleep. Our spirits are very much wide awake and interacting with the spirit realm. Due to the complexities and vastness of the spirit world, much of what is revealed or exposed to us is our dreams are done in a symbolic manner, such as a lion chasing after you or you dreamt that your living relative died etc.

Amazingly, very few folks are aware that curses or blessing can either be passed on to an individual in a dream or hijacked from them in a dream. Nevertheless, the dreamer's action or inaction can allow what is being revealed in a dream to actually manifest in our natural world. The reason for this is because God gave the man and not spirits dominion over the earth and only through the co-operation of man can things that are spiritual manifest themselves in the earth.

I will end with this, a dream will manifest by default if the dream is not challenged when it's a negative dream. This is so because if the dreamer does not resist the enemy who is planting evil seeds in the dreamer's life spiritually then those evil seeds will manifest in the natural. Here are the spiritual laws that are governing this. "But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way" Matthew 13:25 and "Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you" James 4:7.

Please! Ask God to give you understanding right now and bring back to your memory the things he was revealed to you via your dreams before and even now so that you could apply the right actions to provide you with a better life or change the course of your life for the better.
