Christian Dreams And Visions

One of the main reasons God pours out His Holy Spirit is so that we can all see visions and dream dreams (Acts 2:17). Visions and dreams are the substance for life's great achievements. "Where there is no vision, the people perish" (Prov. 29:18).

Martin Luther King was a black pastor growing up under severe racism in America. On August 28, 1963, he led a march in Washington, D.C. and gave one of the greatest speech ever in human history.

Reverend King said, "I have a dream that one day, my four little children will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character!" Racism policies in America started to change. King's vision became a reality.

William Carey was the first missionary in modern history. He wanted to go to Burma to preach the gospel at a time when church leaders are saying, "If God wants to save the Asians, He can do it all by Himself--without us!"

But Carey had a vision for mission outreaches. His motto in life was "attempt great things for God, and expect great things from God." His vision eventually came to pass.

There is no such thing as a great person. We are all ordinary people committed to great dreams. And when what we dream happens, that dream makes us great.

You may think that you are developing a dream. The contrary is true: your dream is really developing you. Dr Yonggi Cho, the pastor of the world's largest church, once said: "You don't make a vision, your vision will make you!"

There are five types of people in the world:

(1) Those with no vision. You live out your life in boredom, frustration and regrets. One day, you will look back and wonder the what-if's of your life.

(2) Those with low vision. You are afraid to step out in faith and believe God for a great dream. You want to play everything safe. But without faith, it is impossible to please God.

(3) Those with wrong vision. Make sure you know where you are heading. Make sure that you don't climb up the ladder of life, only to realize that your ladder is leaning against the wrong wall. Don't pledge first class allegience to second class causes.

(4) Those with vague vision. You want to do something great in your life but you don't know what you really want.

(5) Those with God's vision. Paul had a heavenly vision from God and he was absolutely obedient to fulfil it. When you are living out God's vision, you will experience the most exciting and meaningful life possible!
