Some of us avoid this topic like the plague while others base their faith on it. What is God’s truth about dreams and visions? The Book of Daniel gives us lots of information.
First of all, God gives the gift of dream/vision interpretation. (Daniel 1:17)
Dreams and visions often upset the dreamer. (Daniel 2:1)
Sometimes the interpretation is not instant. (Daniel 2:16)
Prayer and prayer partners are instrumental in interpretation. (Daniel 2:18)
Wisdom in other areas does not make one wise in interpretation. (Daniel 2:27)
God reveals the secrets he wishes to reveal. (Daniel 2:28)
Daniel answered the king, The [mysterious] secret which the king has demanded neither the wise men, enchanters, magicians, nor astrologers can show the king,
But there is a God in heaven Who reveals secrets, and He has made known to King Nebuchadnezzar what it is that shall be in the latter days [at the end of days]. Your dream and the visions in your head upon your bed are these:
As for you, O king, as you were lying upon your bed thoughts came into your mind about what should come to pass hereafter, and He Who reveals secrets was making known to you what shall come to pass.
But as for me, this secret is not revealed to me for any wisdom that I have more than anyone else living, but in order that the interpretation may be made known to the king and that you may know the thoughts of your heart and mind. (Daniel 2:27-30, AMP)
Prayer – Lord, show us our hearts and our minds through your eyes. Amen
