For decades, I lived to achieve my dreams. I was elated when I would achieve one; I was deflated when I failed to secure one. I was overzealous as I chased after one; I was miserable when I was too depressed and mired in personal challenges to have any dreams. I was on a roller-coaster of dreams. When I became a genuinely committed follower of Jesus Christ, I unfastened my seat-belt, got off the roller-coaster, picked up my Bible, began to develop an amazingly beautiful, intense, personal relationship with God, and started to learn how to seek the Lord’s face in prayer, study, and hearing Him speak into my heart His dreams for my life. Yes, His will for my life.
I no longer chase my dreams for my life. Why? My life is His. Now I chase after Him and His Word. And the more I seek Him, the more I find Him, the more I love Him, and the more I desire to serve and please Him by pursuing Him and His will for my life. I no longer expect God to deliver my dreams. What I do expect, however, is that He will show me His will and equip me to find and live the dreams He has for the precious life He has given me. Not for me; for Him!
Are you expecting God to deliver your dreams? Would you consider sacrificing your dreams, repenting of your sins, placing your trust in Jesus Christ, and pursuing His dreams for your life instead?
Heb 13:20 Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant,
Heb 13:21 Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
