There is much about the night seasons that is perfect for seeking God. At nighttime everyone is asleep – except you! You stay up and seek the face of God uninterrupted. This makes for an exceptional time with the Lord as there are less distractions from kids, family, texts and phone calls.
There is something about having quality time with the Lord that makes a huge notable difference in our lives. This is something that you have to be intentional about, fight for and obtain for your spiritual growth. In the night time you can find quiet which is so good for your heart.
What I’ve found in my own experience is that when you do this your dream life shifts to much more peaceful, worshipful and heavenly realities – where God begins speaking to you in your dreams more consistently.
When you seek the Lord with the motivation to just be with Him – He responds because this is what He wants more than anything. The voice of God becomes much clearer as you commit yourself to seek Him during these times. You will find direction comes much easier. God’s blessings will begin to flow as you have made a whole-hearted commitment to seek Him in this way.
I will bless the LORD who has given me counsel; My heart also instructs me in the night seasons. I have set the LORD always before me; Because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved.Psalms 16:7-8
We can clearly see that God likes to use dreams to instruct us, give us direction, wisdom and understanding.
In a dream, in a vision of the night, When deep sleep falls upon men, While slumbering on their beds, Then He opens the ears of men, And seals their instruction. In order to turn man from his deed, And conceal pride from man.Job 33:15-17
Why in dreams? When we are asleep we are not trying to figure everything out. We are in “sleep-mode”. Here God can bypass our intellect to get the message through. Sometimes we get so busy trying to “figure things out” that we get in the way of what God is trying to say.
This is where dreams really shine because God can just drop a dream inside of us that brings light, revelation, wisdom – also sparking an interest through heavenly encounters with Him.
How can you begin to enjoy the night seasons with God?
- Just set aside 20-30 each night after everything has settled down or everyone has gone to bed.
- Try to find your own space.
- Get out something you can take notes on
- Turn on some worshipful soaking instrumental music
- Prayer Options:
Ask the Lord to pour His Spirit upon you.
Slowly pray the Lord’s Prayer (Matt. 6:9)
Pray in Tongues (1 Cor. 14:15)
- Sing Your Own Song of Thanksgiving to the Lord (Psalm 100:4)
- Expect God to speak to you.
- Write down what He speaks.
As you begin to practice the Presence of God in this way consistently, thought you may not experience much starting, you will eventually break through into a new place. Faithfulness is key. Learn to enjoy spending time with the Lord in His Presence!
Get This Book! It Changes Everything!
Many books can be written about obeying God, but precious few are written about living in His presence in your daily experiences. That is because presence living can only be taught by those who are actually living it. Get this book! It changes everything!

John Belt has written a great book that reminds me, convicts me and encourages me to put first things first. Why? So that I may prosper and succeed in every aspect of my walk with God. Thanks, John!

Used in the Classroom
Our teacher took Portals of Heaven and played it in the class room for almost 4 hrs. She said her children began settling down and being quiet and calm. She said after that they begin drawing and they were drawing pictures of angels without any prompting as to what to draw.
Atmosphere of Heaven
Now I have been able to truly find someone to whom I can listen and who transports me in the atmosphere of heaven.

I purchased this for our church – Prayer background music. It’s beautiful. I totally recommend it to anyone who wants to get quiet and centered with God!
