Goodness ... the dreams I had this morning. All I could ask was, "What in the world, Lord?"
In those times it's crucial to remember that dreams are metaphors, allegories and parables and usually not literal. It also means I need to invest the time to discover what Holy Spirit was speaking to and showing me.
In one of my dreams from this morning I was in a commune-type loft and after waking I went into the kitchen. Various people were doing their own thing and a gentleman sitting at the table told me my dad made breakfast for me. It was across from him so I sat down and begin to eat it while fussing at the same time. I said, "Why would he do this? I don't eat breakfast." It was health food cereal in colored liquid instead of milk. But as I ate it, I uncovered a picture and a message were on the bottom of the dish, which was rectangular and more of a shallow cake pan than a bowl.
Wild but good stuff. If you had a dream such as this one, what would you do? Would you brush it off as weird and forget it afterward or would you seek understanding?
I know the importance of and how to interpret dreams and that's one that's worth time to learn from because there's revelation hidden that I need for my life. Remember that we sleep approximately 1/3 of our lives and that's a prime opportunity for God to speak to us without interruption. Dreams are important. They matter and it's to our benefit to pay attention to them. So many times we ask Dad questions and He answers in dreams, but we don't pay attention and then doubt, anger and worser things enter our lives when it's really our lack of understanding of His ways of doing things.
I encourage you to record your dreams each morning right after waking. Then - when you have time - pray and seek Him for the meanings. As you sow the seeds of paying attention to your dreams, recording them and seeking Him for interpretations you'll reap a harvest that increases abundant living in Christ. I'm a witness.
