One of the great things about how God designed us is the capacity we have to see something that as of the moment does not exist in the natural. We call them dreams. I believe they come from God Himself.  In fact the scripture says:

Opposition to truth cannot be excused on the basis of ignorance, because from the creation of the world, the invisible qualities of God’s nature have been made visible, such as his eternal power and transcendence. He has made his wonderful attributes easily perceived, for seeing the visible makes us understand the invisible. So then, this leaves everyone without excuse. Romans 1:20 TPT

If I understand this correctly, God has given all of us the capacity to understand the "invisible qualities of God’s nature", thereby making visible his invisible attributes. Thus if we stir up our pure minds we will be able to see a far off the things God plans for us. If this be so, can you see it? Can you see the great things that God is going to do in the earth realm in the not too distant future? Can you see that there is going to be a revival that will go beyond anything that the world has ever seen? Can you see men and women, boys and girls will fall on their faces and cry out, "what must I do to be saved"? Can you believe that unrighteous laws will be demolished and that the righteous will rule? Can you believe that those who have suffered at the hand of injustice time after time will one day see justice done because the righteous will rule?

If that’s a stretch for you, can you see the end of this pandemic, and God is going to utilize all the discipline and self-control we have had to exercise for our good? Can you see students eager to go to school sitting like sponges willing to absorb everything that the teacher can present to them? Can you see business establishments that you once ignored, opening again and providing such good things that you will support them, rather than shopping on-line? Can you see yourself getting to know your neighbors, talking over the fence, asking how’s the family? Can you see graduations and other celebrations taking on new meaning; not competing as to who will have the best or the biggest, but just happy to be able to see loved ones and friends? Can you see our nation coming together on the premise of what freedom is, rather than name calling and keeping contentions alive for the sake of the six o’clock news? Can you see yourself like Dr. Martin Luther King saying:

I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, and every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight; "and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed and all flesh shall see it together."2

This is our hope, and this is the faith that I go back to the South with.

With this faith, we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope. With this faith, we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. With this faith, we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day.

And this will be the day — this will be the day when all of God’s children will be able to sing with new meaning:

My country ’tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing. Land where my fathers died, land of the Pilgrim’s pride, From every mountainside, let freedom ring!

Excerpt from I Can Have A Dream Speech, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

I don’t know about you but I can see it!
