The True Architect of Your Dreams, Visions, and Promises

Your heart is racing now
From a dream so vivid
It's not the first time
Or second
Or even third
It just keeps coming to you
Again and again
Like sinusoidal waves crashing into sand

The promise in this dream
It doesn't force itself on you
It's naturally unstoppable
Like rain water hitting compost soil
You've resisted long enough
Let it come to you
This one time
Just let it crash

We all have wild, crazy dreams. On some nights, you will wake up in the middle the night, sweaty from a savage dream. And when you least expect it, you will be reminded of a promise God made to you, either through His word or through an encounter with someone or something.

You may say, “I don’t want to dream. My dreams are far-fetched and unreal.”

Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, or set foot on the path of sinners, or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on His law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water, yielding its fruit in season, whose leaf does not wither, and who prospers in all he does –

Psalm 1, Berean Study Bible.

I think the problem we often have with dreams is that, sometimes, you can’t clearly define the timeline of a dream’s manifestation. And even more challenging is having the ability to separate the facts from fiction (or an overactive brain). And it’s very okay to say, “Lord, I don’t understand what You are showing me.”
