My younger daughter got into the car and began to “drive” it. She was so excited that she asked me to take her pictures. It felt good to her “driving” the parked car. Then it dawned on me that we all need to see ourselves in our dreams.

Friend, dreams are vehicles that God uses to reveal and convey you into your future of greatness. A life without a dream is a life without direction, and a life without direction is a life without distinction (Proverbs 29:18). The devil is a master at stealing and aborting dreams; you need to protect your dreams above all else.

“And Joseph dreamed a dream…” (Genesis 37:5). What are those childhood dreams that you have carried about before life starts happening to you? What are those things you thought and believed were possible until you began meeting with obstacles and mingling with natural people? God specializes in visiting people with dreams when they are young (1 Samuel 3:1-11, Proverbs 20:11).

One of the imports of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit is the redemption of dreams and visions (Joel 2:28). What we lost to innocence and carelessness, the Holy Spirit brings back into our lives as we encounter and fellowship with Him. One of the greatest disservice you can do to your life and destiny is to jettison the Holy Spirit in your walk on the earth (Luke 1:30-35).

“…for the child shall die an hundred years old…” (Isaiah 65:20). As far as God is concerned, we are all young, and by the help of the Holy Spirit we all can recapture our dreams and visions. God does not have a grandfather; we are all children of God. With God, a fool at forty is not a fool forever. Abraham and Caleb located their dreams at old age (Genesis 12:4, Joshua 14:10-13).

You can enter into tomorrow today. The power of imagination is one of the greatest gifts that God has given man (Genesis 11:1-6). With imagination, you can bring tomorrow into today. With imagination you can travel round the world without a passport. It is a realm of unlimited possibilities. What would you do with your life if failure does not exist? Go ahead and do it! Live your dream!
