Job 33:15-17 (KJV); In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed; Then he openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction, That he may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide pride from man.
When a man is asleep, it does not mean that he has lost his consciousness.
God has proved this by making covenants with some of the Patriarchs in their sleep.
In 1 Kings 3:5, the Bible says, “In Gibeon the LORD appeared to Solomon in a dream by night: and God said, Ask what I shall give thee.” It is in this dream that Solomon received his great gift of wisdom.
In Genesis 15:12-14, the Bible says, “And when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram; and, lo, an horror of great darkness fell upon him. And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years; And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance.” In this scripture, the Lord spoke to Abraham while he was in a deep sleep.
The conscience was designed by God to hear Him even when the body is physically asleep. You should never count yourself among the Christians to whom sleep means total separation from consciousness.
There are instructions that can come to you in your sleep. It would be utter folly to merely wave them away as the random creations of your mind in sleep.
Impartations can come while you sleep. As such, a man must be conscious enough to receive even when in such a state.

GOLDEN NUGGET: The conscience was designed by God to hear Him even when the body is physically asleep.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this knowledge. My conscience is exercised to hear You at any hour of any day. I can never miss any instructions from You because I am attuned to Your voice at all times. I have the wisdom to translate the realities of my dream life into the physical realm, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
