Scripture tells us dream interpreters are 1 in 1000. This slender ratio isn't due to the Lord having set those numbers into stone like the Ten Commandments. There are so few because learning to interpret God's language isn't an easy task. Isaiah wrote, "He is a God who hides Himself." Yet we are told by the wisest men in the book of Proverbs that it's our glory to search out those things He conceals. In other words, He hides on purpose so we will seek. Like it or lump it, that's the way He rolls. Might as well like it.
Interpretation doesn't just fall from the sky like heavenly dust, it takes work. We co-labor with God to do anything that remotely resembles learning His ways. Ask anyone in ministry if the Lord drops everything needed into their lap or if they must apply themselves wholeheartedly. Like herding a bunch of frolicking sheep, working with a worship team to make a joyful noise, teaching Sunday School to 6-year-olds, or cooking for the homeless, it takes a lot of labor and some heavenly dust (the Holy Spirit's anointing) to get the job done. So it is with dream interpretation; it takes work and anointing.
There are some of us who have been there, done that on dream interpretation and have gained some skills and picked up a little of God's heavenly dust along the way. We're here to help you learn to interpret and apply the secrets locked up in your dreams. So open your toolkit and get ready to learn how to use some dream-tools. Next post we're going to talk about Tool One.
