On December 15, 1966, Walt Disney died. He was a man who had an extraordinary imagination. Five years after his death, his greatest dream became a reality. On October 1st 1971 Walt Disney World officially opened in Orlando, Florida. Walt’s brother Roy presided over the opening, during which someone said “It’s too bad Walt couldn’t be here to see this.” Roy responded, “He did see this, and that’s why you can see it today.” There is a lesson for all of us here. Anything that has been established or built in our material world was first established and built in the hidden realm of someone’s imagination. God has gifted humanity with ability to dream and imagine, which leads me to ask the question, ‘What do you see and what do you dream?’
In Acts 2:17, Peter, quoting the prophet Joel, said that God was pouring out His Spirit “on all flesh, and your sons and daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams.”
One of the wonderful implications of the Holy Spirit being poured out upon us, is that we are released to see, dream and prophesy the hidden reality of God’s future plans. All us have been given the ability to see what God is doing, and by faith to explore what is not yet reality as if it were. As we venture forward together, we will embrace Gods future plans for us through faith, so that what we dream today will become tomorrow’s reality.
