A Daily Devotion for Wednesday, November 2


Acts 2:17 (Joel 2:28)


"In the last days, God says, I will pour out my spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams."


Peter is explaining, using the words of the prophet Joel, that the Holy Spirit has come to mankind, and made all these things possible. It seems that dreams are not felt to hold much of value anymore. Maybe we have forgotten how to interpret them, or develop and use them as a way to communicate with God? God has poured out his Spirit on us. Can we dream dreams??


Holy Father, the dreams I dream are so mixed up and confusing. They make no sense to me most of the time. Please make sure I do not miss anything. I will try to listen. Amen

Acts 2:17 “In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams.


God’s Spirit will have a different affect on us according to our age. For some reason, I think the old men are not dreaming while they are asleep but they are awake and visualizing what eternal life will be like. They are also “calling on the name of the Lord” so that they will be saved.


Dear Lord, this verse makes me think that we will all get one last chance at salvation before the world ends. Thank you for that. Amen.

Acts2:17 ‘In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people, your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams.


Joel 2:28 And afterwards, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions.


I feel that Joel’s prophesy was fulfilled with Christ birth and that the prophesy will be completed when He comes again. Pentecost was a wonderful time and gave the disciples the ability to speak to all people. The dream for us is knowing that Christ will come again to take all to His eternal kingdom…

Acts 2:17 and Joel 2:28 Composer, Pepper Choplin, uses these words in his Pentecost cantata called once upon a morning. The last song it’s a majestic use of these words. I love singing it. I also like the fact that women are not excluded in this future Peter is speaking about. As we dream about our future, I hope people like Peter are a part of it.


Prayer: gracious God, as you will pour out your Holy Spirit on us, may you give us wisdom and compassion. Amen


PS I can’t stop singing this song now!
