Jeremiah 29:8-9a GW This is what the LORD of Armies, the God of Israel, says: Don't let the prophets or the mediums who are among you trick you. Don't even listen to your own dreams. These people are prophesying lies to you in my name. ...
What hit me from this passage is the warning not to listen to dreams, even our own. Often they are wish fulfillments directed by a heart not in tune with God's will or a heart/mind that has allowed entry from the enemy (choices, TV, reading material, friends, occult, etc).
We need to fill our hearts and minds God's Word, Obey His leading and listen only to Him--the One who truly has our best in mind. (Any “dreams” need to be carefully checked against God's Word, His principles and His leading in our lives.)
Jeremiah 29:11 I GW know the plans that I have for you, declares the LORD. They are plans for peace and not disaster, plans to give you a future filled with hope.
