As America celebrates, Martin Luther King, Jr., day for his fight for the equality of man, irrespective of race, his famous ‘I have a dream’ speech is remembered.
The Bible is rife with examples of dreamers from the Pharoah of Egypt, Jacob the Patriarch, Joseph the prince, Nebuchadnezzer the king, Joseph the husband of Mary, Herod the king, the wife of Pilate and more. At times God used dreams to warn his people and at other times he used dreams to communicate his plans.

In fact one of the signs of the last days is that when the spirit of God is poured out, the young men will see visions and old men will dream dreams. In order to dream, one needs to rest. Let us rest in the Lord and may the Lord rest on us so that his spirit can be poured into us and we can also say “I have a dream”.
