God has often used dreams and visions to speak to his people. They have guided, instructed and helped save His people.
For Mary and Joseph a dream was given on how their lives were about to drastically change. Joseph in Genesis was a man of many dreams and his dreams lead him into the future and his ability to read and understand dreams was something that saved his life. There are many more instances where dreams played a vital role in how God communicated with His people. Even though the Bible is God’s primary way of communicating with us, He still uses dreams, people, preaching, prayer, and a host of other things to lead us and speak to us.
