Ask God…what His will and His plan is for your future? Ask Him to help you live out the purpose and the calling He has for you. Whatever that purpose is. I don’t know about you, but I am a dreamer. My mind sometimes runs in 20 different directions and I think of things that I wish could be accomplished. I am always jotting thoughts down that come into my head. Sometimes…these thoughts are put into action and sometimes they aren’t. I guess that is the “entrepreneur spirit” that I have in me.
Many people go through life and later regret that they didn’t live out a dream that they had. What are your dreams? Are they God’s plans for you? My hope comes from The Lord and I put my trust in Him! I heard God call me many years ago. Patiently, I wait for God to lead the way and to open the doors. I have not given up! I have tried to seek Him and live my life for Him while waiting on God’s timing!
With all that said, many times we may share our dreams and visions with other people and they are like the “Cold water committee” and they are all negative and try to tell you every reason why you can’t do something. This is what happened to Joseph. His family even went to all means to get rid of him out of their lives. They threw him into a well, they sold him to slavery. They wanted Joseph out of their life because of their jealousy of him. Be careful who you share your dreams with. Unfortunately people are negative and don’t want to see other people accomplish things. Crazy as it is…it is true.
Position yourself around people that will lift you up and support and pray for you! Find your hope and strength in God! Wait patiently and live your life seeking The Lord and His plans for your life and trust in Him!! Don’t give up on what God has placed in your heart! Dreams take time to come true! Hard work and persistence! After all that Joseph went through, many years later his dreams did come true! God is working all things out for those He has called according to His purpose! God tells us in Ephesians 3:20 that He is “able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us,”. It’s all for His glory! Is that where you see your dream? Is it for your glory or His?
So…keep on dreaming! Keep listening to God as you seek to bring Him honor and glory! I hope you are finding your hope in Him alone! May all your dreams come true!!
“One night Joseph had a dream, and when he told his brothers about it, they hated him more than ever. “Listen to this dream,” he said. His brothers responded, “So you think you will be our king, do you? Do you actually think you will reign over us?” And they hated him all the more because of his dreams and the way he talked about them. Soon Joseph had another dream, and again he told his brothers about it. “Listen, I have had another dream,” he said. “The sun, moon, and eleven stars bowed low before me!” This time he told the dream to his father as well as to his brothers, but his father scolded him. “What kind of dream is that?” he asked. “Will your mother and I and your brothers actually come and bow to the ground before you?” But while his brothers were jealous of Joseph, his father wondered what the dreams meant.”
“Here comes the dreamer!” they said. “Come on, let’s kill him and throw him into one of these cisterns. We can tell our father, ‘A wild animal has eaten him.’ Then we’ll see what becomes of his dreams!” (Genesis 37:5, 6, 8-11, 19, 20 NLT)
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” (Romans 8:28 NIV)
