Our nighttime dreams are often confusing or amusing. Shortly before Juanita and her husband were married, she dreamed about their wedding. In her dream, hardly anyone came. Her father wore a loud, plaid sport jacket to give her away and a brass band tuned up in the corner during the ceremony. It was a nightmare!
Little children are good at daytime dreams. They dream of visiting grandparents or going to an amusement park. They have long-term dreams of becoming a cowboy, firefighter, or teacher. As we grow older, we may no longer dream of what we can become, what God wants to do in or through us, or how He wants to use our local fellowship of believers.
The Holy Spirit is poured out on all flesh–on people of every race and class, men and women, young and old. He comes to cleanse and empower us and to teach us to dream again. We are never too young or too old to dream big dreams, to see fresh visions of what God wants to do, and can do, in and through us.
