Can’t Remember Your Dream? Why That’s the Best Kind to Have…

Giraffes and an elephant on a hilltop under the moonCan’t Remember Your Dream? Why That’s the Best Kind to Have…

Doug Addison

The best dream you can ever have is a dream you know you had but can’t remember the details of!

Job 33:14–17 NKJV “For God may speak in one way, or in another, yet man does not perceive it. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls upon men, while slumbering on their beds, then He opens the ears of men, and seals their instruction. In order to turn man from his deed, and conceal pride from man.”

God will often give us revelation and direction for our life through a dream and seal it away from our memory. Later you may walk into a situation and have a feeling you have been there before. Some people call this déjà vu. I believe that it was God giving us direction in a dream that we cannot remember and when we are living it out later we get that strange feeling that we have experienced this before.

God speaks to us all the time, sometimes through dreams. Though not all dreams are from God, we can receive instructions and guidance through dreams that are essential for our purpose and our destiny. Had He spoken to us more clearly or directly, then we would have a higher responsibility for fulfilling what He wants us to do. By sealing it in a dream, it can bypass our natural mind and even keep us from being prideful and from doing things in our own strength instead of His.

Another example of how God can use a dream is when you actually remember the dream but He seals away the meaning of it. We can have a dream from God that seems very significant, but we do not understand the interpretation or how it applies to our life.

This happened in the life of Joseph in the Old Testament. In Genesis 37, Joseph receives two powerful dreams about his destiny. The dreams indicate that his brothers and their parents will all bow down and serve Joseph. Even his father, Jacob, did not understand the meaning of this dream. The result was that Joseph was sold by his brothers and ended up a slave in Egypt. Later, in Genesis 41, God turned Joseph’s mishaps into a huge blessing that helped save the entire world from a famine.

Maybe you have wondered, how did my life end up the way it has? Oftentimes, like Joseph, we end up far from where we started and it may seem that the promises and dreams that God gave us will not come to pass.

Just this year, I am seeing dreams and prophetic words in my life beginning to unfold that were given to me over twenty years ago. Had God revealed all the details ahead of time, I probably would have tried to make things happen before His timing. God is faithful and we can trust Him as a loving father. Hold on to your dreams and also be open to the element of God surprising you with good things from Heaven.

A quick note from Doug’s team: Doug originally wrote this blog a couple of years ago. We, his team at InLight Connection, dusted it off from the archives and freshened it up just for you. If you have not heard, Doug is currently in Germany on a healing sabbatical.

This is an awesome way to bless Doug during his healing sabbatical, and also to equip yourself in dream interpretation.

      Thanks Doug.I’m blessed listening to this cause of late ,although I go through the dream,thinking as soon as I wake up il write it down ,even as I just shift my position to sit up the dream would totally disappear.I used to get disappointed & ask the Holy Spirit to remind me but most often I remember only a line or two or a couple of scenes. Thanks ,this relieves me a bit

    Man of God, you are a real prophet of the Lord, and my spirit in me confirms your a true man of God, because we are of the same spirit. I receive your wisdom, because it’s the same as the Lord Jesus has spoken and revealed to me. My prayer is for the Lord to continue to heal your body, mind, soul, and spirit to His will, and purpose for your life! Praying for you MOG! Blessings in Christ to you, and your team, and family!

    Can you not put the tweets at the bottom of the page? They really wreck photocopying of the document.

    I’m loving and blessing Doug while he’s on his sabbatical… Praying for deep, deep rest and full recovery… The word you posted today in his behalf is so for him! I feel like the glory that is being revealed in him as a result of this season is so great, that he would say it was worth it and so much more…
