If this dream person was God or His Son Jesus, you would know with certainty that is who it was. In the Bible, anyone who received a dream from the Almighty knew God was talking to him.

Please consider this explanation: King David wrote in Psalm 139:14 (CSB), "I have been remarkably and wondrously made." This means that the way God created people helps us to understand and thrive. God gave us a brain that does wonderful things during sleep. Science knows during sleep our minds are reviewing and consolidating our experiences. A dream represents our thoughts in symbols. So, your personal dream from your own experiences may be reminding you that God is directing, blessing, and comforting you. ​

The man may represent God's word, which you have already read or heard. These are the truths that comfort you. Recall these beautiful promises:​

"My peace I give you… Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid," John 14:27 (NIV).​

"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles," 2 Corinthians 1:3,4.​

"The wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle," James 3:17.​

It seems reasonable that your heart and mind were symbolically reminding you that your Loving, Heavenly Father is always with you – comforting, protecting, and guiding your every experience.
