Why God Speaks In Dreams

Hosted by

dreamsWhy do you complain against Him
That He does not give an account of all His doings?
Indeed God speaks once, or twice, yet no one notices it.
In a dream, a vision of the night, when sound sleep falls on men,
While they slumber in their beds, then He opens the ears of men, and seals their instruction,
That He may turn man aside from his conduct, and keep man from pride;
He keeps back his soul from the pit, and his life from passing over into Sheol. Job 33:13-18

I remember studying about people who received visions and direction from God through dreams. Many were warnings and admonishment for correction. God does this out of love. While He can speak to us through our conscience, His Word, and in prayer… we can become dull of hearing. So, in a grace filled approach, He opens our ears in dreams, giving us instruction, direction (turn aside from a particular conduct), humility (guarding our lives from pride) and ultimately sparing us destruction and damnation.

Am I attentive during the day to God’s leading, guiding and communication? What has He said to me in dreams?

God, You are gracious and loving. Thank You for going the extra mile and trying to reach me with Your Word and Your ways. Help me understand dreams that come from You. And better yet, help me listen while it is day!
