Dream Or Fantasy

It Is Written, Ecclesiastes 5:7, for in the multitude of dreams and many words, there is also vanity. But fear God.
Dreams and visions are common all over the world. They have been around for centuries. People used to make decisions based on dreams. You even read about dreams and visions in the Bible.
All people dream every night, whether they know it or not. Dreams are necessary for our well-being. When someone says that they don't dream, it just means that they don't remember the dreams. Dreams in the present time are usually passed off as nonsense, because we can't figure out what they mean.
Now we come to a different kind of dream. This kind of dream occurs while we are awake, and in control of them. Some people call them fantasies. Regardless of what they are called, they reflect our desires.
Maybe you would like a mansion on a vast estate, a certain kind of car, or your own business to mention a few. Almost all people have something that falls into that category.
While many of these dreams seem harmless and good, sometimes they can lead us the wrong way. We may become so obsessed with them, that we end up doing things that hurt us. We put God out of the picture, and do it our way. Bad choice.
satan loves to play with our minds. He puts things in our heads that paint a picture to deceive us. He works on our patients, and other vulnerabilities. He wants to separate us from God, as well as destroy our lives. As he did with Eve, deceitfulness is his favorite weapon in most cases.
Dreams can be good, if the Holy Spirit is involved. He does put desires in our hearts. If these desires are not contrary to the Word, and we have faith and trust, the Holy Spirit will open good doors, and block harmful ones. Pray that your desires are from the right source. It wouldn't be a bad idea, to read Ecclesiastes all the way through, to get a good idea of what you are dealing with. Praise the Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me. Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation. Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
Thank You
