TOPIC : WATCH YOUR DREAMS AS YOU FAST AND PRAY
SCRIPTURE :Mark 13: 33. Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.
Beloved, I welcome you to another Moment of Daily Encounter with the word. Jesus taught us to watch and pray! And there are so many issues we must watch and pray for especially during during fasting and prayer! One of the thing we must watch and pray about is our dreams. Today our focus watch your dreams during and after fasting and prayers.
Some one will ask me why do I need to watch my dreams during fasting?
During fasting and prayer; usually your spirit is prepared to receive and one of the channel of receiving impulses is via the dream. We understand the primary way God speaks to us as believers is through the Bible! Does that mean God doesn’t speak through any other means? Yes He does!
I have personally observed on several occasions, that our God is a multidimensional God in His approach of passing information to His children! Sometimes it could be by a sign, and sometimes it could be by an inner voice /witness, a flash across your mind or by opening your eyes to see something. And it could be by dreams. Therfore, the become an important part of our lives which must not be ignore.
The following are reasons why we must watch out on our dreams.
1. Dreams are a vehicles of passing information(Gen.41:1-8)! Pharaoh dreamt about two seasons of life; which are abundance and scarcity but couldn’t get the interpretation of such dream because they are symbolic! Many times dreams are medium of passing vital information of which if understood and applied goes a long way to prevent untold hardship. How could you have reconciled seven well favour kine and seven ears of corn to represent years of abundance? That’s to tell you most times what dreamt about is not always the direct interpretation of it.
Imagine when you engaged in serious prayers that is when you usually have some dream attack just to discourage you from praying.
For example a young man engaged in serious fasting and prayer; and that is when Satan is bringing immoral dream of sexual affairs to him! In some cases it is feeding in the dream, the more you fast and pray the more they try to feed you in the dream!
All these are effort from the pit of hell to discourage you from continuing in fasting and prayer.
Beloved, are you already discouraged because of what you are seeing in the dream? I’m here to encourage you today, don’t be discouraged. All the opposite reactions from your dream is an indication your prayers is hitting hard on them, so don’t give up in prayer and fasting.
2. Your security intelligence could come from the dream(Matt.2:13): That was the case of baby Jesus! His earthly father being Joseph received an instructions via the dream.
Beloved, too many times God has shown you in a dream what is about happen, yet you ignore it by not taking a necessary action. There are accident to avert if we watch carefully on our dreams. There are losses we can avoid when we watch over our dreams, there are accident to avoid when we watch over our dreams etc.
3. Dreams are medium through which we receive ideas as believers;
Genesis 31: 10. And it came to pass at the time that the cattle conceived, that I lifted up mine eyes, and saw in a dream, and, behold, the rams which leaped upon the cattle were ringstraked, speckled, and grisled.
It was Rev. Sam Adeyemi I heard saying “ideas rule the world ” !
Frankly speaking, the ideas that you need to rise and reign in your own world must be deliver to you personally. The onus therefore lies on you to know how it will come. In the case of Jacob it came by dream.
Jacob received an idea from God that enable him to recover 20years of cheating on him through the dream. I love Jacob because he received the idea and went into action straight away. As soon as he woke up from that dream, he took steps and carried out what he saw in the dream, the result was alarming because the man who had been using him and cheating him was amazed at what he saw.
What the Holy Ghost wants us to know today is to watch over our dreams because many times, God may be passing a destiny changing instruction to you. The idea you need to jump out of that financial predicament could just be one dream away from you. The ideas you need to turn your story around could just be very close to you now! So, don’t joke with your dreams especially during fasting period.
Remember this: Heaven is real and hell is real! Eternity lies ahead every man, get prepared for it today.
