Unremembered Counsel

I will bless the Lord, who has given me counsel.
My reins also instruct me in the night seasons.
Psalm 16:7

Some instructions the Lord gives us come to us while we are asleep, in the form of dreams.  We may or may not remember such a dream; that doesn’t matter.  What matters is the residual effect of the dream on our spirit.  God uses dreams to adjust our attitude and give us direction even if we do not remember the dream when we wake up.
We bless the Lord for giving counsel, even if “our minds are unfruitful”; that is, even if we don’t remember the counsel He has given.  As long as our hearts are influenced by it, we are blessed.
