TOPIC: TREAT YOUR DREAMS WITH CARE
Memory verse:-"As the sun was setting, Abram fell into a deep sleep, and a thick and dreadful darkness
came over him. Then the Lord said to him, "Know for certain that your descendants will
be strangers in a country not their own, and they will be enslaved and mistreated four
hundred years. But I will punish the nation they serve as slaves, and afterward they will
come out with great possessions. You, however, will go to your fathers in peace and be
buried at a good old age. In the fourth generation your descendants will come back here,
for the sin of the Amorites has not yet reached its full measure.”
When the sun had set and darkness had fallen, a smoking firepot with a blazing torch
appeared and passed between the pieces. On that day the Lord made a covenant with
Abram and said, "To your descendants I give this land, from the river of Egypt to the
great river, the Euphrates— the land of the Kenites, Kenizzites, Kadmonites, Hittites,
Perizzites, Rephaites, Amorites, Canaanites, Girgashites and Jebusites.”
In Abram’s demand of a sign, God asked him to bring him (God) some things and in the course of doing that, he fell asleep. In his deep sleep God spoke to him, meaning God used dream to reveal his thought concerning Abram. Dreams are important, though not all dreams ought to be treated with care but as Christians God uses dreams to speak to us, nothing can take that fact away. The Lord God is a living God and the God of the living not dead. As such he speaks through different means, he is not like the idols that can not speak, and see, and they are the handiwork of mere mortals. But our God sees, speaks in different ways and know all things. Dream is one way that God speaks and truly we need the strength of God to understand our dreams too.
Prayer:-pray against all bad dreams you have had this month and also for the good ones to come true.
pray for excellent spirit that understands the voice of God and can differentiate his voice from that of the devil.
