I remember waking up from a dream that was the most magical, supernatural, amazing, and thrilling dream I ever remember having. I was so disappointed when I woke to find myself sleeping on the couch of a friend’s house and utterly heartbroken that I woke up to reality...it was only a dream. It was so real. I was so immersed in the beauty of the dream that it was my reality.
The same feeling happens when we realize there is a dream brewing in our heart that seems too impossible to achieve. Disappointments, failures, loss, crisis, broken promises, to name a few, cause hope deferred...making the heart sick.
The Lord has a purpose for each one of us. We are put on this earth to bring Him glory, and a dream is birthed in our hearts on how to accomplish that. The enemy of our soul does everything in his power to destroy that purpose by killing our dreams. Only God can use the stumbling blocks that trip us up as stepping stones to awaken our dreams in the divine process that gives Him glory.
As we surrender our lives completely to the Lord, God takes our impossibilities and makes them realities all for His glory. As we offer total obedience to His will, which may include jumping off a cliff of faith, we will find that instead of falling, we begin to soar with wings of eagles and our dreams awaken to bring glory to God experiencing the most magical, supernatural, amazing and most thrilling life we were meant to live. Don’t give up on your dreams. God will bring them forth in His time for an appointed time.
Joseph had a dream. His purpose from the beginning of time was for an appointed time. The stumbling blocks of persecution were stepping stones to put Joseph in the right place at the right time. And his God given dream, purpose for his life was awakened. What dream is being birthed in you...for the appointed time?
