I don’t see why so many Christians still don’t see the importance of dreams.
Dreams come to A) tell you what's on your mind
B) tell you God's opinion about what's on your mind
C) give you instructions --whether God seals it and we understand those instructions mentally or not
and D) to guide you
The way i see it
God gave humans a way to psychoanalyze their fears, to see their worries, spiritual doubts , spiritual things they can't quite verbalize" WAYYYYYYYY before psychology came on the scene . Dreaming is a tool that God uses to make us have a connection with the world , with our feelings about events in our lives , with people .
Even if Daniel hadn’t given the king the interpretation of the dream, Daniel told the king
So yes, dreams are about psychoanalyzing and seeing the self but it is also about the holy spirit showing a person her heart because Jesus came that the hearts of many would be revealed.
During the day, God speaks with the still small voice but who listens? So at nights --because we don't listen in the day because of too much tv, too much phoning, too much internet, too much work, too much playstation , God has to speak to us in dreams. We have to open ourselves to the possibility that God speaks to his children EVERYDAY.
Some folks son't want to believe that . It makes God too near. They have the God in the sky the God-as-CEO mentality . They believe God gives us His word – The Bible—and maybe some advice through a pastor and we follow the leader and only ask for God to speak to us when necessary and when we’re in a pinch.
But Enoch walked with God. God was Abraham’s friend. We are told that we have to pray without ceasing -- and that's not just asking and petitioning and praising . We have to always walk with God. He desires our friendship. He desires to accompany us everyday and to always be with us. It is not like God to say "Okay , today i won't talk to Carole. I talked to her yesterday.”
God talks to us everyday as if we are the only ones he can talk to , because he lives inside us.
Are we gonna go around saying
No, God talks everyday
And if he can't get to us in the day
14For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not.
15In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed;
16Then he openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction,
17That he may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide pride from man.
18He keepeth back his soul from the pit, and his life from perishing by the sword.
Christianity is about a daily friendship with God . Friendship is discussion and conversing along the way.
