Your Dream Life

Written by Joe Dardano

The Bible teaches us that God speaks through dreams. There are many scripture passages that prove this point. All you need to do is google “dreams in the Bible” and you will be provided will ample evidence. In this meditation, I want to point out two books in the Bible where dreams are mentioned more often: The Book of Genesis and the Book of Matthew. In the Book of Genesis we learn of the dreams given to Joseph and his ability to interpret them for others. In Genesis 37, God tells Joseph in two dreams that he will rise to greatness; that people will bow down and follow his lead. Naturally, his father and brothers were not too pleased to hear such a dream. Regardless, I want to make two points in relation to Genesis 37. First, when God offers you a vision in a dream, we must be patient to see its fulfillment. Time is no factor from God’s eternal vantage point. It was years before God would raise Joseph as second in command in Egypt. My second point is that faith is required to keep believing that your dreams will be fulfilled. The other book of the Bible where we find many dreams is the Book of Matthew. Here Joseph is given specific instructions in dreams to take Mary as his wife and then move his family from place to place to protect the child Saviour Jesus. In these examples, dreams are given to instruct to take quick, specific actions, warning the faithful that danger lurks. Just like in the dreams give to Jospeh in the Old Testament, Joseph–the father of Jesus–needed a deep faith to go ahead and move his family to protect the Saviour of the world. Utltimately, the main point I want to make is that we need to trust the instructions given to us by God in regard to His plans for us; immediate plans and long term plans. Sometimes these instructions do not make sense. Our temporal minds cannot grasp the logic, but God has eternal logic and sees the big picture for us. He guides us and directs us for our ultimate good. Hebrews 11:1 sums up this point very well: “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.”
