I’d like to address a very important aspect of Christian living which is how to deal with visions and dreams. I have them quite regularly, the most recent of which was a dream where first I saw a mother nursing her baby and under the picture it said, “Feed your baby.” Then I saw a family sitting at a table together eating and the caption read, “Feed your family.” Then I saw a woman carrying a roast turkey down the block to a nearby house and the caption read, “Feed your neighbor.” And finally, I saw a map of the United States of America with a bottle of milk pointing toward the center with lines that went in every direction and the caption read, “Feed your nation.” Then I woke up. I had a sense of awe when I awoke like, “me feed a nation?”

Immediately, I thought what does this dream mean? Is it literal or figurative?

I thought of how Jesus fed the multitude. Perhaps the dream was both. He also fed thousands the WORD when He gave the sermon on the mount.

When you have dreams or visions, begin by praying. Ask God, help me to understand this dream. What does it mean?

Second, read through scriptures that come to mind or look them up.

It made me think of Joel 2:28-32

 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:

29 And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.

30 And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.

31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord come.

32 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the Lord hath said, and in the remnant whom the Lord shall call.
