Write down your dreams and visions
Write down your dreams and visions which come to you before you forget them or lose track of them. Sometimes the Lord God gives us dreams to warn us of dangers, exhort us to follow the Gospel, show us the future and reveal his plans. Some dreams are for your personal growth, while some are for others too. You need to be really decisive on which is for you and which one is for others.
Thought not every dream or vision is from God, we must not adopt a general ‘dismiss all’ attitude towards all dreams. Be a discerner and not a skeptic. You need to judge as to which one comes from God and which doesn’t. Any dream that provokes you to sin and unworthy acts or thoughts are to be not given heed to.
If a dream come that shows you a person in trouble or need then do pray for them and take decisive action too. Speak to your pastor or some mature Christian about the dream. Don’t make the dream public unless the dream is surely from God. This vision or dream must be able to stand the test of the word of God. Genuine dreams from God will NEVER contradict the word of God.
So whether you want to discern if a dream is from Jesus our Lord or whether you want to pass it to others who need to hear about it, make it a point to write it down. Do it as soon as possible. This way the details of the dream will remain sharp to you instead of fuzzy. The sharper the memory of the dream, the simpler is it to discern it.
