Common Dream Symbols
Dream symbols are based on scripture or biblical principals but they do not apply in every situation. The Lord speaks in parables and the Holy Spirit will use the context of the dream, scripture and your own personal experiences to give the meaning of a dream to you.
Some dreams are instruction for future events or situations and the meaning cannot be known until that situation arises, so it is helpful to write down or record your dreams. The Lord often unveils truths and interpretations in layers. These common symbols might help but seek the Lord for interpretations and He will reveal what He is saying to you.
Proverbs 25:2 says "It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, But the glory of kings is to search out a matter."
Sometimes seeking the Lord and His fellowship to search out the meaning of a dream is even better than the dream itself.
