God’s Dreams

Yesterday I spoke about God’s dreams for us, and where our dreams fit in with His. In thinking about our dreams in relation to God’s dreams for us, consider the talents God has given you, and how you could use them in God’s work.

As we dream of what we want to achieve, we must make sure we don’t take our focus from God. So how do we determine which of our dreams are those we have for selfish ambition against those which have been placed in our heart and our thoughts by God?

Are you at a place in your life where you have already found it but wonder if you’re being daft to even consider following your dream at your age, or feel only those with some kind of destiny to pursue should consider following their dreams? Or are you in a place where you don’t have any dreams but would love to find your dream and pursue it, but you’re too scared in case you can’t find your dream?

So many questions, but ones which have answers! God made each of us in His own image. He gave us the ability to be creative and have thoughts and ideas of our own, and most relevantly He gave us the ability to dream…but not just dream, to have the ability to make our dreams come true!

God has given you and me this ability to dream and to put our dreams into fruition. In other words this is part of God’s plan for us. He places His desires for us within us showing us how to use the talents He has given us by helping us fulfill His purpose for our lives.

Never think that dreams aren’t for us, that we’re too old, too young, talentless, too busy etc, as God has special plans for each of us individually.

If you feel you have no dreams, or feel you can’t achieve your dreams, or just need reassurance from God, ask God to show you His dreams for your live and then let Him help you fulfill those dreams.

I Still Have the Dream by Michael W Smith

Said it’s sad, said it was a shame
Bet you thought I caught a boat to Bombay
On the line just to let you know
I will be around

Underneath the bridge to nowhere
Like I’m living out a game of solitaire
Going up to a better day
I will be around

Hey world, it’s me
I still have the heart, still have the dream

Come on, people
We’ve got to come together
It’s you and me
Hope will make us stronger
Freedom it rings
Do you hear it calling?
Reach out and touch
And love will take us higher

Somebody threw a brick in my vision
Tried to sabotage my mission
Either way, I believe
I will be around
I wanna know, people, are you with me?
Open up your heart, and just believe
Take a step, let me hear you say
I will be around

Hey world, it’s me
I still have the heart, still have the dream

Come on, people
We’ve got to come together
It’s you and me
Hope will make us stronger
Freedom it rings
Do you hear it calling?
Reach out and touch
And love will take us higher

For He knows the plans He has for you
A plan to prosper and not harm you
To give you a future and a hope

Come on, people
We’ve got to come together
It’s you and me
Hope will make us stronger
Freedom it rings
Do you hear it calling?
Reach out and touch
And love will take us higher
