Dreaming dreams

Joel 2. . .”And it shall come to pass afterward That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your old men shall dream dreams, Your young men shall see visions

.”I once heard Charles Stanley (aka, “America’s Pastor”; next to Billy Graham that is) say that if you’re not dreaming you’re dying. God has placed a dream inside of every believer in His Son that requires an extraordinary step of faith to carry out.

Many Christians are just content with being saved and going to heaven that they become too content with life and get stuck in a rut of everyday existence. That’s called settling for an average or mediocre lifestyle.

Although our steps are preordained by the Lord, we also create our destinies by taking what God gives us and going as far as we can with them; For His glory of course.

No person was put here by accident and nobody was meant to live an average existence. The fact that you’re here in this time shows that the world around you needs something that only you can provide.

So, in closing, what dream has God placed on your heart to carry out in your life? You may have blinded yourself to your dream by telling yourself you weren’t good0 enough or equipped enough to carry it out but if you’re seeking God with all of your heart you’ll find it-if you want to anyway. If you want to do more than just live day to day without any goals.

Of course the first step to finding God’s will for your life is accepting Jesus as your personal Lord & Saviour, then being filled with His Holy Spirit to empower you to live victoriously.
