Simplifying dream interpretation
Dreams from the Lord are often parables with various symbols that must be interpreted. It can often help to stop and pray that the Lord will give you a dream interpretation.
If a symbol is found in the Bible, it may help to read the Bible story that uses that symbol.
When Jesus told parables, he used symbols such as farming methods of the day. He used symbols that people knew about. Today your dreams may have modern items such as electronics. They will be symbols that you know about very well. They will often be symbols that relate to you.

Writing down dreams
It helps to have a notebook specifically for your dreams. Write down dreams because you forget them so quickly. Also, as soon as you wake up after a dream, it helps to rehearse it over & over in your head.
Why the Lord gives us crazy, silly dreams
It seems that to help you remember a dream, the Lord will often attach an emotion to it. An example would be when the dream is so crazy that it makes you laugh.
Dream interpreter Stephanie Schureman had a dream once in which she was swimming down a river. A cow was following her. The cow began to laugh.
Then she heard in her spirit “cash cow”. She woke up and realized that she could be completely confident in the provision of the Lord.
The value of nightmares
The Bible says that nightmares can save us from several things:
- Bad choices.
- An early death.
- The enemy (the Lord may spotlight the enemy’s plans).
