A Season of Dreaming‏ ~ By: Neil Vermillion

I believe we are currently in a season in which God is giving us dreams like never before. When I say dreams, I don't mean hopes, plans, or aspirations - not those kind of dreams. I'm talking about the dreams we have in the night that usually tell us a story.

These are the kind of dreams that perplex us and often confuse us, though they will also guide us and give us hope.

In this season of God releasing and birthing visions in the night season I want to encourage you to make a choice in your heart and your mind to cooperate with this as best you can. In this time and season of dreaming, we want to position ourselves as best as we possibly can to align ourselves with what God's doing, especially when it comes to revelation and understanding, which God totally uses dreams to do.

How can you cooperate with this?

I think there are a couple of ways to do this, but basically they could be summed up by simply saying not to discard or discount the dreams you have.

We know God starts things, even really big things, in very small ways frequently. With this in mind, let us not discard the little, seemingly insignificant dreams you may be having. Instead make it a priority to document them, think about them, pray about them, and ponder them.

The big obstacle is to document them. Our memories are fleeting and imperfect, so it's important to have some kind of strategy in place to be able record the dreams while they are fresh on our mind in the middle of the night, or early in the morning. Documenting the dream while it's fresh is the best way to preserve the details and the essence of the dream. Waiting to document the dream tends to lend itself to forgetfulness more often than not.

So I'd like to encourage you to put either a journal, or some kind of voice recorder and have it next to your bed so you can record the dreams. Record the dreams even if you're not 100% sure God is giving it to you - just get in the habit of recording your dreams, and see where it takes you. Do it while the memory of the dream is fresh on your mind, and be as detailed and thorough as you possibly can. Little details can make a big differences so don't be tempted to skip them.

After you've made a way to document the dreams, I want to ask you to make time to pray about them and reflect on them. You don't have to spend a long time, just do something - maybe even only 2-3 minutes. Ask God to give you an understanding of what the dreams are saying, and what God is saying to you through the dreams. This might feel a little funny at first, but stick with it. Like anything, you'll get better at it over time as you gain more experience.

Be open to hear what God is saying, and trust he will not give you a snake if you ask for a piece of bread. Trust him. He wants to reveal these things to you. That's the reason he gave you the dream in the first place.

Right now, I bless your mind, bless your heart, and bless your spirit to receive dreams in this season. I bless you to not only receive the dreams but to understand them and to begin to walk in the fulness of the revalatory dimension God has for you personally. I bless your spirit to receive every detail, and allow your mind to be fertile soil to receive these messages from God's spirit.

I bless your dreams, in Jesus name.

What an exciting time to be open to God's spirit as he's truly moving among his people!
