Dreams a Thousand Generations Long

“When you know, even for a moment, that it's your time, then you can walk with the power of a thousand generations.”
— Bruce Cockburn, Dream Like Mine

Your young men shall see visions,
Your old men shall dream dreams.
—Acts 2:17
Young men see what is, old men see what will be. Both aspects speak of awareness of who we are, where we are and why we are. God is from eternity — He takes the long view. His plans and purposes endure. “He remembers His covenant forever, the word which He commanded, for a thousand generations” (Psalm 105:8).

God has dreams a thousand generations long.
