To Interpret Dreams
Kathy—Genesis 40:8 says, “It is God who gives the ability to interpret dreams.” I grew up thinking that interpreting dreams was a specialized gift and a calling that God only gave to certain people, but the scripture doesn’t really say that. When we consider Daniel and Joseph, we find that they pursued wisdom. They knew that God had answers and they were confident they could go to God to enlighten them, (and they both said as much.) We too can go to God and ask for wisdom and understanding, and we know that God can release a gift of His Spirit that opens understanding with a word of wisdom or a word of knowledge or discernment or prophecy, etc. So, I’m beginning to realize that pursuing God’s wisdom and understanding is more the heart of interpretation than seeing it as a specialized or rare gift.
