What’s in Your Dream?

Joseph had a dream.

(Genesis 37:5 NIV)

Can you remember the last dream that you had? Did you dwell on it for a moment and shrug it off afterwards, or did you ignore it altogether? I believe that God speaks to us even while we sleep, so we should try to understand the meaning of our dreams. Throughout the Bible are scattered the dreams of people who actually took the time (and some even went to great lengths) to understand their meaning, especially when the dreams seemed to carry deeper meanings. Joseph, for instance, had dreams of becoming a ruler, while Pharaoh had dreams of famine ravaging his country, and both dreams were fulfilled. I wonder what would have happened if Joseph and Pharaoh had shrugged off their dreams as pointless. The lives of many would have definitely been lost. Instead, the Bible tells us that in the morning Pharaoh “sent for all the magicians and wise men of Egypt” to tell them about his dreams (Genesis 41:8). This tells us that Pharaoh took his dreams very seriously, and so should we.

God speaks to us even while we sleep.
