Earlier this year I started a personal challenge to share one of the 21 principles as covered in the book by Richard G. Scott. This book has really touched my heart and I have felt impressed to share it with you and my own feelings about each of the principles. You can read about the other principles I have covered here. If you would like your own copy of this book, you can purchase it here. This is NOT an affiliate link, even though I do have an affiliate account with Amazon. I have chosen NOT to use an affiliate link as I don’t feel right about it in this circumstance.
“As you seek spiritual knowledge, search for principles,” counsels Elder Richard G. Scott. “Principles are concentrated truth, packaged for application to a wide variety of circumstances.”
“A true principle makes decisions clear even under the most confusing and challenging circumstances.”
Why does the Lord sometimes choose to speak with us through dreams, while we are sleeping? I think it is because sometimes, that is when we are finally quiet enough to listen and He can speak to us and we can hear. There are so many things that provide a lot of noise throughout the day and in our lives. Sometimes, we need to be still and at times, we are only still when we are asleep. Thus, it makes this a perfect opportunity for the Lord to speak to us without interruption.
If we are aware that the Lord can use our dreams to convey spiritual lessons, then we can learn valuable truths through those experiences. That’s a pretty powerful thing. He doesn’t always choose our dreams to speak to us, but when He does, we ought to notice and pay attention.
It is also important to note that not ALL of our dreams are messages from God. We need to learn how to tell the difference. The Spirit can help us to discern the difference. We just have to be in tune and listen.
