You Can Get Your Breakthrough in Your Dreams

Though not all dreams are from God, God is speaking through dreams. Once you understand them, you can benefit from any dreameven a nightmare, which reveals the plans of the enemy.  

I had a reoccurring nightmare for 7 years. When I was 19 years old, I faced my fears in the dream and woke up rededicating my life to Jesus. This is why I devote my life to helping people understand how God speaks through dreams.

God speaks to us in many different ways. He also speaks through dreams in many different ways. Here are a few types of dreams God will use to speak to you.

Breakthrough dreaming

There may be something in your life or someone you know who needs a breakthrough. You can very well receive the answer you need in a dream!

In breakthrough dreams, we may confront or face something we haven’t been able to overcome in our daily lives. While we sleep, we can have a supernatural encounter with our fears and overcome something that is trying to hold us back from our destiny. After this kind of dream, our lives can take a dramatic turn for the good because God gave us a breakthrough while we were sleeping!

My favorite example of this in the Bible is Genesis 31, when Jacob had a dream. God revealed a business strategy on how to make money and get repaid for all the times his father-in-law, Laban, had ripped him off.

Dreams you can’t remember

If you do not remember a dream or you only remember part of it with some details, God designed it that way. In these dreams, God imparts something to your spirit that you need—and He will tell you when you need it!

Dreams where God conceals the meaning

God sometimes sends us a dream we remember, but He seals away the meaning of it. These dreams often feel important, even though we do not understand the interpretation or how it applies to our life.

An example of this in the Old Testament is in Genesis 37, when Joseph received two powerful dreams about his destiny that he didn’t fully understand.

He said to them, “Listen to this dream I had: We were binding sheaves of grain out in the field when suddenly my sheaf rose and stood upright, while your sheaves gathered around mine and bowed down to it.” Genesis 37:6–7 NIV

Then he had another dream, and he told it to his brothers. “Listen,” he said, “I had another dream, and this time the sun and moon and eleven stars were bowing down to me.” Genesis 37:9 NIV

After this dream, Joseph went through many trials before becoming second-in-command over all of Egypt during a time of great famine. In Genesis 42, the meaning of the dream becomes clear:

Now Joseph was the governor of the land, the person who sold grain to all its people. So when Joseph’s brothers arrived, they bowed down to him with their faces to the ground. Genesis 42:6 NIV

In this type of dream, God may be sealing away essential instructions and guidance for our purpose and our destiny—in the future. By sealing it in a dream, God can bypass our natural mind and keep us from being prideful and doing things in our own strength and timing instead of His.

If you have not been dreaming lately, there’s no need to worry! You can ask God to give you dreams. I am hosting my brand-new online training workshop, Dreams and Angelic Encounters: Understanding the Language of Heaven, on September 22 from 10 a.m. to Noon Pacific Time. If you want to learn more and be activated in dreams and angelic encounters, I encourage you to reserve your spot for this training!

Get ready to receive greater clarity for your destiny through the dreams you dream!

    I totally agree with you:” this type of dream, God may be sealing away essential instructions and guidance for our purpose and our destiny—in the future. By sealing it in a dream, God can bypass our natural mind and keep us from being prideful and doing things in our own strength and timing instead of His.” This is why He speaks to me clearly in my spirit when the time’s come for the prophetic dream to be realised. Till them I just have a vague understanding of what’s going on; better for me though I don’t really like it. He’s the boss, He knows best.
    Thanks for your efforts. Henrietta Izard

    Thank you for this. I’ve been having dreams every night for the past week or so and felt bad because I couldn’t remember them. This word is so timely.

  3. Tash says:

    I wish I could enrol for the lessons on dreams…. this is very insightful. Is there an email we can send dreams too if we need interpretation?

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Hey Tash! Currently we do not have a place for dreams to be sent in for interpretation. In Doug’s upcoming workshop he will be teaching how to interpret dreams though. Bless you!

    Hi my name is Gloria Gray Johnson I use to dream all the time and see into spiritual but I haven’t in while. Can you explain?

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Hey Gloria, if you have not been dreaming lately, there’s no need to worry, you can ask God to give you dreams. Bless you!

    I have been having dreams off and on and/or I can remember them. When I do dream – they are not good dreams and I can’t understand why my dreams are so bad. They aren’t like nightmares but they aren’t good dreams. The good dreams are vivid and I can remember little details of my dreams – very frustrating. Will you be having another workshop on dreams after 09/22/2018?
    Thank you!

  8. Jacqueline says:

    God bless I had a dream I saw Christians being prosecuted and being killed I was telling Christians don’t cry because they are with the Lord and all of a sudden I saw a sister who I went to church with and she looked at me and said to me they are going to try to kill you but your going to put up a good fight you are one of the chosen ones. What does this mean?

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Hey Jacqueline, we are unable to interpret dreams here on the blog post. I recommend sitting with God and asking Him to unpack the dream for you.
      God bless you!

    Please l used to fish in a dream, ether with my brother or my father and it has been recurring at least every two weeks. Please help me to know the meaning

  12. Grace says:

    This week I am having dreams that appear to have meaning. One was the birth of such a wonderful baby. Not a baby of mine but having something to do with my life…The dream was baby baby and baby and a very happy dream. Also dreams of my realative from my younger days and close family. Not delightful to me to have contact again. ???? What God might be saying. I have warning dreams and some came true. I had a friend who could tell me all the meanings. Is interpretation one of the gifts. I do not have it if it is. She offered insights that were accurate. I never would have gotten to those conclusions by myself..Getting true meaning so important. Once I was guided by fear in the dream and it meant something wonderful and so different as circumstances later proved.
