Does God reveal things through dreams and visions?


The Bible indicates that God revealed His will to selected people through dreams or visions in Scriptures such as Genesis 37:5-10; 1 Kings 3:5-15; Daniel, chapters 2 and 7; Matthew 1:20; 2:13,19; and Acts 10:9-16; 16:9.

God may communicate through dreams or visions even today, but we need to carefully check any such guidance we receive with Scripture and godly counsel to be sure it is from the Lord. Anything which contradicts Scripture is not from God. Our minds and even Satan are capable of producing great deception in such subjective areas.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 shows that God has revealed His will to us primarily through His Word. It says, “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”

    I dreamed I was crying out, giving all that belongs to me back to God, material things, my children, myself and I was repeating I’m standing on God’s promise for I know he is a present help in a time of need. Everyone be blessed

    Six years ago I had a dream my brother and his girlfriend announced they were pregnant. The next day I told my mom about my dream and she asked how I could know that. They were pregnant. A week ago I had a dream that my husband and I had conceived. I took a test the next day. I’m pregnant. Knowing that God is speaking to you is be most soothing feeling in the world. God has his hand on my child and on me.

    Me and my girlfriend had broken up, but three weeks later I started to have dreams and visions of her coming back to me. I pray. I need help. Please let me know what’s going on. I can see it when I am awake.

      Recently my husband and I separated, I was truly upset one night. Crying before I went to bed, I asked God what should I do? Should I give up or should I keep fighting for my marriage. I dreamed my husband came back home. Is this my head wanting my husband to come home. Or is this God telling me to be still don’t give up.

      What is her name? I was just wondering. I am going through a similar situation. I broke up with my boyfriend.. Times are tough. Maybe it means you should try to reconcile with her..
