When They Saw the Star

And behold, the star that they had seen when it rose went before them until it came to rest over the place where the child was. When they saw the star, they rejoiced exceedingly with great joy. And going into the house they saw the child with Mary his mother, and they fell down and worshiped him. Then, opening their treasures, they offered him gifts, gold and frankincense and myrrh.

Dreams play a big part in the salvation story. God even tells us that in the last days He will pour out my Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, and your young men shall see visions. [Joel 2:28; Acts 2:17]

But nowhere in Scripture does God point us to our dreams, or even theirs for that matter. Why?
