Another Man’s Dream

2nd May 2020

Scripture Reading: Daniel 2: 1-22


“And in the second year of the reign of Nebuchadnezzar Nebuchadnezzar dreamed dreams, wherewith his spirit was troubled, and his sleep brake from him.” (Daniel 2: 1)

When Daniel interpreted the dream of Nebuchadnezzar accurately, the king was so impressed that he gave Daniel many great gifts, and made him ruler over the entire province of Babylon. So Daniel interpreted another man’s dream, and greatness became his new reality. Daniel found the meaning of another man’s dream, and he it positioned him in the place of relevance. Another man’s dream promoted Daniel.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: God will use another man’s dream to promote you. God will use another man’s vision and mission to make you relevant; God will use another man’s assignment to take you higher; God will cause another man’s success to lift you higher; God will cause another man’s assignment to make room for your greatness; God will cause another man’s plans to make space for you at the top.

Daniel was on his own when Nebuchadnezzar showed up to announce that he had a dream which needed interpretation. So the dream of Nebuchadnezzar unveiled the opportunity for the greatness of Daniel. Hear me as I hear the Lord: their dreams will be pregnant with opportunities for your greatness. Another man’s vision will throw up opportunities for you to be relevant and useful to your generation; another man’s dream will make a way for you; another man’s dream will lift you higher.

Daniel was not made relevant by mere luck. He was made relevant because he had a divine capacity to do what others could not do. His capacity became the platform for his greatness. Hear me again: the capacity you have in you will make you relevant. As men show up with their dreams, visions, plans, targets, goals, etc, the capacity you have in you will be their answer.

Ask God to use another man’s dream to lift you higher. Ask God to create an opportunity for you in another man’s vision.


Another man’s dream will promote me, in Jesus’ name!
