23 February - Dream Big - Knowing What You Want

God gave us an imagination and made us to be creative creatures, full of ideas and dreams. He loves for us to dream, and it’s Him who places many of the dreams we have in our heart in the first place. (Ephesians 3:20).

Allow yourself To Dream

The key when dreaming is firstly to allow yourself to dream and to imagine all the wonderful possibilities. Pray and ask God to take the limits off your thinking and see bubbles up from your heart and spirit.

Examine Your Dream

Once you have written down what you've been dreaming and thinking about pursuing in life, examine each thought, desire, goal and aspiration to ascertain whether you really want to put the effort in to achieve that dream and goal.

For instance, many people would say they’d love to play an instrument, which is an amazing thing to make as a goal, but not so many people want to put the time, energy and money into learning and making music one of their skills. It’s a nice idea, but few want to pay the price.

Align Your Dream With God's

The other part of examining your dream is to see if what you desire agrees with God’s word. If it aligns with his heart, and character and the bigness of who he is, then it’s more than likely something he has placed in your heart to do and become.

But, if what you desire seems contrary to God’s ways and what he has spoken already, then that dream needs to be unpacked a little bit more to discern whether, in the pursuit of a dream, you will end up causing harm or depleting who you are and your relationship with God and others.

While dreaming and acting upon what you want to see happen in your life, you may stumble in the process, experience disappointments and setbacks, but if you are continually learning and developing into the person God has called you to be, then, He will help you keep running in the pursuit of what he has placed in your heart.

Plus, the lessons you learn will help equip you to keep moving forward to fulfil your dreams. God, in fact, says He will bring all things together that you experience to produce good things in your life.

And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them” (Romans 8:28 NLT)

Life is precious, and God wants you to live your life to the fullest. He promises He will lead, equip, and guide you and will even direct other people into your life to help you achieve the dreams He has placed in your heart.

Today, if you feel purposeless in life or think you have no dream, I encourage you to turn your focus to Jesus and take some time today to examine your heart and what Jesus is whispering to your heart. Allow yourself to dream and to see what Jesus has placed within you that He wants you to pursue and fulfil?

Dream big (because God does), write your dreams down, spend some time praying over them, and then make plans and take steps to fulfil your dreams.

Don't downgrade your dream just to fit your reality. Upgrade your conviction to match your destiny!” (Rick Godwin) God wants to use your unique gifts and circumstances, aligned with the desires He has embedded into your soul, to do great and wonderful things. Go dream today…

“May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed.” 9Psalm 20:4)

“And the LORD answered me: “Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it.“ (Habakkuk 2:2)

“I am the Lord your God, who teaches you to profit (benefit), Who leads you in the way that you should go.” (Isaiah 48:17 NKJV)

“Now to Him who is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly more than all that we dare ask or think [infinitely beyond our greatest prayers, hopes, or dreams], according to His power that is at work within us”. (Ephesians 3:20 AMP)

Prayer: Lord, please help me to know the dream in my heart and to see that all things are possible in you. If what I am focusing on isn’t your best for me, please reveal your plan, help me see where you are leading, and guide me in the way I should go. In Jesus Name Amen
