A Daily Devotion for Thursday, November 3

Deuteronomy 13:1-3

If a prophet, or one who foretells by dreams, appears among you and announces to you a sign or wonder, and if the sign or wonder spoken of takes place, and the prophet says, "let us follow other gods" (gods you have not known)" and let us worship them," you must not listen to the words of that prophet or dreamer. The Lord your God is testing you to find out whether you love him with all your heart and with all your soul.

Moses warns of false prophets. Interestingly, it is not the dreaming which makes the prophet false, it is the content of their message. In other words, the act of dreaming is not described as a false way to communicate with God. But dreams can be easily misinterpreted or mis-represented, because they are so private. And false prophets can lie. I think if God wants to communicate with us through a dream, the content will be consistent with God's Word. And it takes prayer and discernment to interpret the truths in any of our lives, whether they be dreams, "coincidences" or any other events which lead us to wonder. Food for thought.

Father God, you have the power to communicate with us any way you choose. Help me to notice these communications, and to pray for further understanding. I long to be closer to you. Amen

Becky, transforming
