I got a call from him that day. It was a cheery news. He had just been granted full scholarship to study in the UK for his postgraduate. I was taken aback to those days when he would always say that he would study abroad. His family background did not look like it. But he did not stop dreaming. His dream became a reality.

Friend, dreams still come true! Greatness is for dreamers. This is why the devil will do everything possible to stop you from dreaming. Your dream talks about your capacity to imagine a future of greatness with God. Joseph became what he became by the power of dreams (Genesis 37:5). Even when his dream was attacked, he dreamt again (Genesis 37:5). Learn to dream again!

One of the reasons why people drop their dreams is because of opposition. Listen, the devil is afraid of your dreams. There are people around you who might also feel intimidated by your dream. Why? Because your dream already communicates that you are more than this. You are better than where you are. You are set for a future of greatness with God.

“…And this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do” (Genesis 11:6b). Dreamers are unstoppable people. There is no limitation in your mind. Dreams set in motion unseen forces to act in your favour. You are where you are because of your dreams or lack of it. Like Joseph, don’t allow oppositions and challenges to make you lose your dream, rather, dream again.

One of the blessings of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit in the last days is the capacity to dream (Joel 2:28). When the Holy Spirit comes into your life, He would blow your mind! He would take you from today into tomorrow and empower you to become what you see. As you go into this new week, I challenge you to recapture your dream. What was that thing that you thought of doing when it looked like you can never fail?

What were those dreams you came into year 2020 with? Did you dream of travelling out of the country for studies, business or to live? Don’t let Covid-19 stop you! Did you dream of building a mega Church? Don’t be locked down! Did you dream of starting your business or owning your company? Go back to that dream! Dreams don’t die, we only have people who give up on them. Don’t give up! You will succeed! Amen!
