Dreams are part and parcels of all people and it has a lot of impacts on us.It could mean success or failure, or something unimaginable.
Last two days I talked about “Dreams Come True Part 1” which was about setting goals for the future and working tirelessly to achieve it.Life without dreams or goals is useless.I strongly believe you have dreams as you read this posts.Now,here I will discuss with you about the second version of dreams which is more complex to understand because it relates to the spiritual world.I will take references from the bible to let you understand that ,dreams come true.There are three great men in the Bible who proved that dreams come true. Actually, there are other biblical instances but here I will focus on three of them.
First and foremost, let us learn from Solomon, how he got wisdom through dream.Solomon was a King in Israel, he feared God and worshiped him wholeheartedly. God appeared to him one night and asked him to make request for anything he needs.Solomon did not ask for riches nor anything except wisdom.
” Now give me wisdom and discernment so I can effectively lead this nation. Otherwise no one is able to make judicial decisions for this great nation of yours.”
“God said to Solomon, “Because you desire this, and did not ask for riches, wealth, and honor, or for vengeance on your enemies, and because you did not ask for long life, but requested wisdom and discernment so you can make judicial decisions for my people over whom I have made you king,
you are granted wisdom and discernment. Furthermore I am giving you riches, wealth, and honor surpassing that of any king before or after you.”(2 Chronicle 1:11-12).
God gave him enough wisdom in addition to wealth. He therefore became the wisest and the richest man ever to live on earth.Talking about wisdom, the bible instructs us to go to the ants to learn wisdom . He actually directed this message to all lazy people.In my older posts, I also talked about “how to obtain wisdom from God” .Trust him and he will give you wisdom if you ask.
The second,person I want us to consider his exemplary life as he also had his dreams fulfilled in the Bible is Joseph.In fact Joseph had a couple of dreams and all came to pass.After reading this post,you will know that dreams come true so we shouldn’t joke with it.Joseph became a dream interpreter as well. Interpreting dreams is a heavenly discerned gift. He dreamed to know that he will be the greatest among his 11 brothers. This made his brothers hate him so they sold him out. The dream became true and his brothers fell into the pit of their conspiracies.
” Joseph had a dream, and when he told his brothers about it, they hated him even more”.
“He said to them, “Listen to this dream I had:
“There we were, binding sheaves of grain in the middle of the field. Suddenly my sheaf rose up and stood upright and your sheaves surrounded my sheaf and bowed down to it!”
Then his brothers asked him, “Do you really think you will rule over us or have dominion over us?” They hated him even more because of his dream and because of what he said”.(Genesis 37:5-8).
His dream continued in the verses 9 to 10:
“Then he had another dream, and told it to his brothers. “Look,” he said. “I had another dream. The sun, the moon, and eleven stars were bowing down to me.”
When he told his father and his brothers, his father rebuked him, saying, “What is this dream that you had? Will I, your mother, and your brothers really come and bow down to you?”.
Nothing they did stopped Joseph’s dream to materialise. Whiles he was in prison he interpreted the dreams of the King’s cupbearer and the baker and all these dreams came true.(Genesis 40:1-23).
The third person I want us to learn a lesson about dreams from is Daniel. He was a dream interpreter just like Joseph. He too was a captive in the days of Nebucadnazzer in ancient Babylon. The King had a mesmerizing dream which Daniel interpreted as the downfall of his kingdom and surely the Kingdom of Nebudcadnezzer fell.Daniel became well-known for his ability to interpret dreams.
“Thus there was found in this man Daniel, whom the king renamed Belteshazzar, an extraordinary spirit, knowledge, and skill to interpret dreams, solve riddles, and decipher knotty problems. Now summon Daniel, and he will disclose the interpretation.”(Daniel 5:12).
Whenever you have a dream, take is serious, pray over it.Dreams could mean a bad or good omen.So pray to break any life threatening dream,pray to God to help you understand dreams that strike fears in you. Dreams are the forerunner of what will happen in the future.Every human being dreams, but do we take it serious?. Can you remember dreaming a more vivid dream that you thought it was real till you woke up to find out it was just a dream?.Oh uh,that is not “just” a dream, it has meaning. And it takes the spirit of God to decipher. If you are a Christian you can ask God to reveal the meaning of your dreams to you or you tell your pastor to help you understand. Just like the above examples from Solomon,Joseph and Daniel, they proved to us that dreams come true.Some dreams are very scary, my dear reader, don’t sit there unconcerned. People have dreamt of their failure,destruction or death and they had it as such, others dreamed of their success, promotions, happiness and it happened to them as such. This is the power of dreams.Dreams come true.
