“God-size dreams ensure our growth. When God calls us to something, it can feel awkward and uncomfortable, like someone handing us the wrong size in the dressing room. It gaps in strange places and pinches in others. We may find ourselves wanting to send it back for a more reasonably-sized dream, one that doesn’t cause so much discomfort.
But that’s a huge mistake. God hands us an extra-large vision by design. He is not just interested in what we can accomplish for him, but in who we are becoming along the way. As we struggle to grow into what and who God calls us to do and be, we are changed and shaped more and more into the likeness of Christ.” Michael Hyatt
We are the dreamers of dreams.
The visionaries who live for the invisible of tomorrow.
The builders who create now for the future.
We are the dreamers who stretch into greater things, who push ourselves to do more and more importantly, become more.
Today is a glimpse into what I dream and what I dream to become and do.
As dreamers we must make each moment count. Our whole life matters. Dreams don’t magically come true at the right time without the right preparation and cultivation.
Do you dream of being an author? Then write, now, today.
Do you dream of being a missionary? Learn and serve, now, today.
Do you dream of being a worship leader? Practice and join the worship team.
Do you dream of being a preacher? Write messages, now, today.
Take God’s hand and run with His dream. Put doing steps and substance to your dream.
Live for the invisible promise of what is to come and wrap preparation around it today.
I love reading about when God calls Jeremiah the prophet in Jeremiah 1.
He tells Jeremiah that before he was even born, before he was anyone, before he did anything, that God called him to be a prophet to the nation. God then goes to to teach Jeremiah to see and to speak. He shows him an almond branch and asks Jeremiah what he sees. He unfolds the meaning of that branch to Jeremiah and then shows him further things and further insights. God prepares Jeremiah. He equips him. He trains him.
Likewise, before we were born, God knew us and called us. He destined us. He wired us, on purpose with purpose.
And as He is the dream giver, He is also the dream fulfiller who unfolds step by step the growth process that shapes us to live out that dream.
My dream is in HIS hands. He is faithful to complete the good work He has begun in my life.
I can trust Him with my dream and respond in faithfulness to grow to be who that dream needs me to become.
What is the lesson God is teaching you today?
