Dreams. What happens to them? As children our imaginations run wild creating world’s of adventure and possibility. Our imagination take us to far of places and some transform into dreams.
I think, most of the time, our biggest obstacle is us. Maybe we’ve stopped dreaming. Or, maybe we’re refusing to share our dreams out loud to avoid ridicule, “You can’t do that. Think of something practical. That will not put food on the table.”
Maybe for some of us we fear that God’s reputation might be at stake. God’s reputation is fine. We are His representatives on Earth and I don’t want Him to be impacted by my dreams.
Can I tell you a secret? The dreams in our hearts were planted by God.
God is so much bigger than our greatest fears or obstacles! It’s good to celebrate the past, but that should never stop us from anticipating the future.
The day we stop following the dreams God has put in us is the day we allow ourselves to go into cruise control. When our biggest desire starts to shift from seeing God do great things to making everyone as comfortable as possible, we know we’re losing sight of how big God is.
Fight the urge to maintain the status quo. Instead, do everything possible to advance the cause God placed in your heart. Stay focused on what could be rather than what has been. Don’t let your imagination lose power. Keep moving forward.
“However, there is a God in heaven who reveals mysteries, and He has made known.” Daniel 2:28
