Daring To Dream

How well do you think you are doing at aligning yourself with the plans and purposes God has established for your life?

When we seek the face of God and take the time to listen to His heart, with gentle firmness He always shows us the areas He wants correction to come.  Then with His amazing grace He gives us the power of the Holy Spirit to make those changes. He simply wants us to purpose to seek His heart daily – habitually so that we walk in step with the Holy Spirit.

Can that really be such a difficult thing to do when Jesus said that in His Presence is fullness of joy?  Intimacy with God – nothing is sweeter!

It’s time to activate our faith  by choosing a walk with the One who has our very best in mind.

I hope that there is a passion and desire for our hearts to be in a deeper place with Jesus.  Can we attest to that being the case by looking at where we were last year?

Hopefully, we all have hopes and dreams for our lives and a way we can make them a reality is to write down what you see on the inside.  Begin to get yourself ready by setting time aside with God so that there is an aligning of our dreams and His purpose.

Remember, God had a dream.

He shared it with Moses who wrote it all down – the first five books of the Bible include the dream of God’s heart for you and me.  We can follow that same example by writing our dream so that the dream is clear and in focus and becomes something solid and achievable.

We can then sow seed toward that dream.  We can sow seed today by taking the time to schedule the time into our daily agendas to pursue the goal of our dream.

God is the One Who has placed dreams and desires within our hearts.

For each one of us there is a specific and appropriate time and place for its accomplishment.  Putting our dreams on paper, to bring them into clearer focus is raising the bar in our lives.  It will cause us to set our priorities in certain orders and it will allow us to determine what we need so that we can prepare ourselves in particular ways.

Most of all it will cause us to refuse to open the door when discouragement comes knocking and any failure will not deter out progress.  We will be able to understand that the difficulties we go through are all a seasoning for our lives to give us a depth of richness and compassion that will help us relate to others.

We have raised the bar – we have dared to dream and we have set our faith to receive.

I am not satisfied anymore with mediocrity – I long to rise up with eagle’s wings – willing to raise the bar and trust God for better things concerning my life.  Are you?

    This has been on my heart lately. I’m learning to let God be in control because the way I see my dreams unfolding may not be the way he sees it. I’ve also learned that being a success isn’t the thing I shoot shoot for. Instead, I want to be significant. Success is all about you. Significance is about others. God bless you.

      Christina, thanks so much for your comment. I love what you said about being significant. My hope and prayer is that I too will be significant and make a difference in the lives of others. May the Lord bless all you put your hand to.

    When we don’t set time aside for God, we are putting something else before Him. It could be work, sports, worldly items. We have to remember that we are second and He is first. Thanks for this post.
