Disparity between a dream and a vision. A dream induces an expectation. But, a vision endows a provision. Moreover, a dream could be ordinary and extraordinary too. Meanwhile, an ordinary dream is synonymous with an ambition which often doesn't emerge a reality. But, on the other hand, extraordinary dream is divine or rather it comes from God. That's why most times it turns out to become a reality. Besides that, a vision could also be ordinary and extraordinary too. However, an ordinary vision is a mental picture of what the future could be or would look like. And like an ordinary dream, most times it ends up unrealized. Whereas, an extraordinary vision is of God. I mean, it originates or emanates from God and it is ever meant for an appointed time. As a matter of fact, it must come to pass even against all odds. SCRIPTURE REFERENCE (HABAKUK 2 : 3).
