As I studied the Word, I was amazed at how many times God spoke to people through dreams in both the Old and New Testament. When He began to increase my spiritual dreams, I prayed for wisdom, knowledge, and discernment to spot the counterfeits. I also began to search scripture for answers to my questions. I felt a stirring in my spirit and I knew God had something for me in this.
