Here is the article that I wrote for PRMI’s Moving with the Spirit that compliments their healing and deliverance ministry:
Do you believe that God still speaks in dreams today? The Bible is filled with stories of how God used dreams to speak to ordinary people, even people who didn’t believe in Him; yet, many people who awaken with a strange dream think it is just indigestion, acid reflux or last night’s pizza. Of course, not all dreams are from the Lord because your own heart and the enemy can deceive you. That’s why you must test your dreams.
Do you ignore your dream messages like unwanted junk email? God has been using dreams to speak to me for years; however, one day I could no longer ignore the voice of God in my dreams. He was unquestionably speaking; yet, there was no one who could help me navigate through the maze of my nighttime mysteries. It was that day that I decided to go on my own dream journey with God. I read all kinds of Christian books on biblical dream interpretation. I studied, I journaled, I blogged and prayed (LOTS!) that God would reveal His understanding.
As I delved deeper with the Lord, I began to see an interesting correlation between the people who dream frequently and their need for inner healing. Like me, these people were captivated by their dreams. Like me, they wanted to understand these cryptic codes, but were unable to see clearly until God opened their eyes. Having experienced trauma, anxiety, fear, control, lack of self-worth, and rejection, I learned there was an enemy that existed in my soul. I admit it took me a long time to understand what God was telling me. I was not purposely missing the point. I was just wounded, confused and deceived.
Thank God that He had a plan, and it led me to PRMI’s Dunamis Institute and their Advanced Healing and Deliverance class. While my dreams revealed elements of my true-self that needed inner healing, it was through PRMI that I received revelation knowledge and experienced the fabulous healing ministry of Jesus. In addition, God used PRMI to help mentor and encourage me into the unique calling that He has for my life. And guess what?
I did something that I never thought I would ever do. I never wanted to do this either, nor did I feel qualified. (You know it has to be God when that happens, right?) I wrote a book about biblical dream interpretation so that others can learn how to process their dreams with God’s understanding… for I know He wants to help us with our lives.
Surely your Heavenly Father God yearns to give you hope and a future, and He can do it through a dream. Are you willing to pursue God regarding that dream you just had? Do you have a dream that God has placed in your heart?
My book Dream Discoveries intentionally guides readers on their own personal journey to find God and His hidden messages using the wonderful gift of biblical dream interpretation. It includes the following features to help readers discover God and what He desires to do in their life:
- Three-Part Dream Process
- All-Encompassing Types of Dream Revelations
- God’s Purposes for Dreams
- Four Steps to Get God’s Understanding
- Dream Symbols and Dictionary using the Unique Category Approach
- Common Clues to Unlock your Dream Mystery
- Singular Healing Clues that Reveal your Wounded Heart
- Inner Healing and Deliverance using Dream Self-Revelations
- Pitfalls to Avoid when Applying your Dreams
- Dream Discoveries Template
- Diverse Dream Stories with Lessons Learned using the Template
- Prayer Reflections and Reviews throughout the Book
- The Greatest Dream Discovery
Dream Discoveries also describes in-depth self-revelatory details about inner healing and demonization revealed through dreams, along with the fabulous healing ministry of Jesus… for God loves to take wounded hearts and make them whole.
Nevertheless, one of my greatest hopes for this book is that those who don’t believe in God will find Him through their dreams. While many dream interpretation books give lots of good information, they often leave dreamers confused about their own dreams. Using a new and unique approach, Dream Discoveries is purposely penned to be easy to understand without the Christian jargon so that any individual, whether a believer in Jesus or not, can embark on their own dream adventure with God. In fact, this concept is exactly how God used dreams in the Bible – to point people to Himself. God even raised up master dream interpreters like Joseph and Daniel to interpret dreams so that all would know that there is a God in heaven who reveals secrets and will accomplish His purposes.
Will you become God’s beautiful dreamer? I believe He wants you to start listening to your dreams and the matters of your heart so that your eyes may be opened to the wonders He has for you… for it is the glory of God to conceal a matter, but the glory of kings to search it out. Choose to search out the real meanings of your dreams and allow God to awaken your senses to hear His voice. Only you and God can find His secrets.
Do you have within you the strength, the patience and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world?
Your dream journey with God begins with you.
