Are you limiting God? Do you list reasons why God cannot speak to you in dreams? Perhaps you do not get much sleep each night so you think God can’t speak to you through them. Or maybe you are pregnant and so write off all your dreams. Well, these are excuses, and you are limiting what you believe about God.
Let’s start with pregnancy. Do you believe that just because you are pregnant that God will choose not to talk to you for nine months?! Seriously?! I have five young children, so I know a little on this subject! I know how crazy dreams can sometimes become during pregnancy. However, I also know that God still speaks to me in dreams. The important thing is not to write off your dreams. If you normally receive revelation from God in dreams, then you will already have established a language of communication with God. If you continue to pay attention to your dreams, then you will know when a dream is a genuine message from God. Seriously consider each dream you have before you just write it off as a crazy pregnancy dream.
It does not matter how much or how little sleep you get each night, nor how long you sleep for each time, God can still give you a dream. If you refuse to accept this, then there is a high possibility that you will not accept or acknowledge a dream that He gives you. Here is an example of how little sleep you truly need to receive a dream from God. A few weeks ago I woke early in the morning and got up for a few minutes, then when I went back to bed I looked at the clock. It was 04:24. I closed my eyes, and amazingly I fell asleep instantly and had a dream. When I next woke up, I looked at the clock and saw it was 04:26. I had slept for only 2 minutes, yet I had also dreamt. Change your perspective. Think of a night in which you are in and out of sleep as one in which you have many more opportunities to receive dreams as you have many more independent periods of sleep.
There are many other ways in which you could be limiting God. Check what you believe about God and what He can do. Remember, He is God and is not restricted by the same things as us!
