Job 33:14-15 NLTFor God speaks again and again, though people do not recognize it. He speaks in dreams, in visions of the night, when deep sleep falls on people as they lie in their beds.
How To Know If A Dream Is From God
Zechariah 10:2 (NASB)For the teraphim speak iniquity, and the diviners see lying visions and tell false dreams; they comfort in vain. Therefore the people wander like sheep, they are afflicted, because there is no shepherd.
- Was your dream clear or confusing? The Bible makes us understand in 1 Corinthians 14:33 that God is not the author of confusion. When God speaks or reveals a thing in a dream, He does that with clarity and specificity. God doesn't give dreams that leave the dreamer perplexed on what it's all about or what to do with it.
- Did the dream confirm something God has already spoken to you? God will sometimes give dreams that confirm to us what He has already spoken to us about—either through a prophecy or through previous dreams. If a supposed prophetic dream is strange to you, it is advisable you ask God to confirm it through other sources before you go on to act on it.
- Does it align with God's character or personality? God will not give anyone a dream that questions His character (which we've known through our personal relationship with Him and through studies of the holy scripture). Any dream that conflicts with God's character and personality is not from Him.
- Did the dream appear godly or demonic? If a dream appears demonic, we shouldn’t try to paint it holy. A godly dream is not hard to spot, it will always carry God's presence, peace and clarity. If it came with an eerie feeling, it is demonic.
- Does it confirm or contradict God's Word? God will not give us a dream that contradicts the holy scriptures. What God speaks to us (be it in dreams or while awake) will always align with His written Word.
