What is a dream, but a promise from the Lord?
A great quote I read the other day sums up the human experience on dreaming so very keenly:
“It’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.” – The Alchemist
One of the most useful skills that the Lord equipped His children with, in my opinion was the ability to look into our selves and formulate dreams, hopes and aspirations. All of which, if properly motivated, bring us closer to God. It is through our strong desires, the things that tug at our heartstrings that bring us closer to not only God, but also God’s promise.
After all, that is the point of it all isn’t it?
When I say get closer to God, I don’t mean that in the physical sense (although some may have that privilege), I however, am referring to that sweet spot in life, in which we are in alignment to our maker, and feel His presence and peace within us. That undeniable feeling that you’re doing exactly what you’re suppose to do, with this gift called life.
Yes, I believe that awesome feeling of fulfillment and utter contention is God manifested into our spirit.
Dreaming, hoping and aspiring in life is a direct lifeline of life itself. In times of doubt the hope of something better, can be a life saver. However, there is also that part of us that needs validation that our dreams are not just wishful thinking. We need answers, we need to see it. And fast.
What happens when we try to rush God’s hand? What happens when we try to get God on our timing instead of conforming and adjusting to His beautiful timing?
In summation, we fail.
There is no such thing as God taking too long. God’s timing is always perfect. The key is in what we do while in wait. A dream planted in our hearts by the hand of the Lord, will never wither and die unless we are careless keepers of that dream. Being in constant communication with the Lord, through prayer and meditation, will ensure we are taking the right measures to realize our dreams and His promise. Also, having enough faith to know just as Abraham did that once a promise is spoken from the Lord, mountains will move (remember this) to see that promise come to light.
It doesn’t matter what stands in the way, all that matters is that God has undoubtedly already made a way!
Be blessed dreamers.
