How are you? Hope you had or are having a great day today. Do you dream often these days?
David Pawson said in one of his teachings that he prefers vision to dreams. So do I. Despite my preference, today, I would like to write about dreams.
I learned that dreams and visions are some of the ways God speaks to His children. But we must always test and discern whether the dreams or the visions we saw were from the Lord, from our natural man or from our enemy. I used to have open visions a few times during my prayer in the Spirit in my Singapore time, but I didn’t have many dreams that I thought were from the Lord till 2018. Since last year, whenever I had dreams, I prayed to the Lord, “Lord, please help me know whether the dream was from You and help me understand the interpretation too, if so.” Amazingly, sometimes, He would give me a Word right away to interpret the key of the dreams, while other times, He helped me understand what the dreams meant in an unexpected moment.
In the fall of 2018, I prayed to the Lord that mom would know and see Him through her dreams, as she was not interested in reading the Bible, but in watching the news all day long. I literally asked Him to show Himself to her even in her dreams, as He showed Himself to Jacob in his dream, so that she would know He is for real and He is with her. Then, one morning, she said to me, “Babe, I had a really nice dream last night and I’m sure it was from the Lord. I saw a ladder from the Heaven, and it was so bright! I can’t describe how good it was!” I was so amazed when she mentioned “a ladder from the Heaven”, thinking of the ladder in Jacob’s dream in my recent prayers. I was certain that she really had the dream about the ladder from the Heaven and saw His glory in the dream. I couldn’t thank Him enough for His goodness.
In June 2019, I had a dream. In the dream, I was made uncomfortable by a man that I didn't know. He was kind of stalker. Being uncomfortable, I was looking at the sky, expecting God to show something in the clouds, and I was desperate. Then in the cloud, I saw a big Lion. It was not a young lion, but the roaring lion like the Lion of Judah. I was so glad to see it. Waking up from the dream, I didn’t really know what the dream meant. Then, in the afternoon, I received Doug Addison’s daily prophetic word in my email box, “Expect prophetic dreams and spiritual experiences over the next few days.” I found it quite meaningful, thinking of my dream that I had earlier in that morning.
Then, in a day or two, I had another dream. I was again made uncomfortable by another man. This time, the man was someone I knew from business, and I didn’t like him at all. In the dream, I was so uncomfortable and felt I was kind of stalked by him. Then, I was desperately looking at the sky again, expecting God to show something to me in the clouds. I was surprised to see the roaring Lion, the Lion of Judah, on the right cloud. And on the left cloud, there was a Snake. The Lion on the right cloud blew the Snake away so that the Snake was being driven out. When I woke up from the dream, I didn’t really know what it meant, but I knew my Lord, the Lion of Judah, would fight for me and drive out the enemy.
Later that afternoon, my Christian friend in Singapore texted me to say, “Yunee, be strong and courageous. The Lord is always with you.”, and she attached Lana Vawser’s word, ‘Pick up Your Pen and Vision Again!’ Since my time in Singapore, God used this Christian friend to give me timely confirmation so many times. So, I expected something when reading Lana’s word from my friend. Soon enough, I was blown away, especially when I read her writing about “Snake” and “the snakes are being driven out”. It was exactly what I saw in my dream earlier that day. The Snake in the cloud was being driven out by the roaring Lion. And Lana’s word was to encourage many in the Body of Christ who laid down their pen and their vision.
Are you expecting the Lord to speak to you in your dreams? I pray you download His vision and power from His dreams to you in Jesus’ name. May He also give you discernment and interpretation for your dreams in Jesus’ name!
Have a bliss!
