What dreams have you got?
God meant us to dream and we are not talking day dreaming here! He spoke to people in the Bible through dreams. On the day of Pentecost when God poured out his Spirit on all flesh, Peter said the young would have visions and the old dreams – that’s not visons for the future and dreams about the past. It refers to God speaking across the generations – with peole living longer, the average age in the UK for both sexes is now in the 80’s, and we’re healthier and stronger – maybe its time whatever age you are to dream again in God, to listen for and hear God afresh.
The dreams and visions God gave people in the Bible were very often bigger than the individuals involved…… That’s God’s way! God always gives us dreams bigger than ourselves, otherwise they wouldn’t be dreams, and they wouldn’t require us to go out on a limb in God.
