In the Bible, God speakes to His people in dreams (Genesis 46:2) .
So what are we to make of it when we believe that God has shown us something in a dream?
Could the visions, or small voices that come to us in the night, really be from God?
Are we to act on the basis of what we see in those dreams?
For example; a young Christian woman has a dream where she moves to Uganda to set up a missionary outpost and also works with orphaned giraffes. Should she sell the studebaker and wing her way to Kampala?
You keep having the same dream over and over where you are worshipping at a little Baptist church in a small town in Vermont. You are quite happy there, and become the world’s seventh (notice the number 7?) largest distributor of maple chips. You have this dream at least once a week. Is it God? Could it be God?
Are these only manifestations of your unconscious mind, solely concoctions of events and images burned into your immagination, only to reappear in a dream?
Could these nightly visions be from the devil?
Have you ever acted upon the basis of something that came to you in a dream?
How did it turn out?
