Topic: God speaks in dreams
Text: Job 33:14-18
Key verse: God speaks in different ways, and we don’t always recognize his voice. Job 33:14
Several scriptural promises assure believers in the Lord Jesus of guidance, counsel, and instruction, but often we miss the messages either because we are not expecting to be guided or we do not discern the ways God speaks. Several believers prefer to hear from their prophets or pastors instead of from God. It ought not to be so with you.
My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. John 10:27
If you expect to hear from God, then you must learn some of the ways God speaks. One very simple way God speaks is through dreams.

Let’s see a couple of reasons why we must take our dreams seriously.
