And when Gideon was come, behold, there was a man that told a dream unto his fellow, and said, Behold, I dreamed a dream, and, lo, a cake of barley bread tumbled into the host of Midian, and came unto a tent, and smote it that it fell, and overturned it, that the tent lay along. And his fellow answered and said, This is nothing else save the sword of Gideon the son of Joash, a man of Israel: for into his hand hath God delivered Midian, and all the host.
Judges 7:13-14 KJV
Dreams are ”a series of thoughts, images, and sensations occurring in a person’s mind during sleep.” Its waking equivalent is called vision. Dreams are a major means of spiritual communication, even though most people rank it in the bottom of the ladder. It can be used by God or the enemy. Dreams speak using pictures. So we see instead of hearing what is being said. It pleased God to allow Gideon and his servant to hear a dream from the enemies camp. Dreams make use of imagery and symbols. Joseph had a revelation of his future in a dream. In today’s scripture, the enemy just found out that they are discomforted. Being deeply superstitious, the Amalekites and the Midianites were very affected by the dream. In the New Testament, dreams are not necessarily the final judgement. We are permitted to accept or reject a dream by comparing them to what God says about us in the word. So we are better furnished to judge dreams. Any dream which contradicts Gods victory in our lives should be rejected and cast aside by prayers. The unbeliever does not have that ability. Its a kingdom privilege. What was your dream today?
