Daring to Dream With God

Have you ever discovered a “dream in your heart”…

and it seems near impossible as you look at yourself or your current situation?

It seems unlikely?

Maybe you’ve even had people laugh at you (or behind your back) about it,

or they’ve even told you that you’d “surely fail.”

And then, as you can’t seem to shake, or shut down this dream in your heart…

The enemy screams things like:

“Who are YOU to think you can do something like that? You’ll fail. You’ll go nowhere. You’ll be an embarrassment.

…You can’t…”

But here’s a clue that I’ve learned:

When you start hearing things like that scream inside your own mind…

It’s worth looking into the opposite. 😉

Because God doesn’t tell His children that we’ll “surely fail” as we take His path,

He tells us that, in Him, we can even do the impossible, if He leads us to it.

And many times, the enemy is going to attempt to persuade us to take the opposite of what God has on His heart for us to step into.

Especially if it’s important.

Especially if it will glorify God.

He’s going to attempt to shut it down with every trick and scheme.

So it’s more than worth having a heart-to-heart with God about…

“Lord, this dream on my heart… is it You? Are You leading me into this? Are You drawing me? Will You make it clear…help me to dream with YOU, God! I want to be aligned with Your will for my life.”

And know, that He wants you to know

which way to go.

You don’t have to worry or fret that He won’t do His part to get you where He wants you.

Know… that He wants you to take steps that are in line with His will for your life!

Seek Him, with all of your heart, and You will find Him.

Draw near to Him, and He will draw near to you.

He will lead you into His will.

Because that IS His will. 💝

And sometimes in the journey, we feel as though we “just don’t know”… and maybe we don’t “know that we know” in the moment...

but then later on we realize

that we’ve found ourselves doing the very thing

“they” said we’d never be able to do.

Have you found yourself in lightbulb moments like that?

And you realize…

that God got you somewhere

in your journey.

He got you to a place—somehow

where He made the “impossible”

possible

and very real and tangible in your life.

“They” said you couldn’t do it.

“They” said you would surely fail.

But you simply trusted God

and took the steps He led you to take…

Step-by-step

“Yes” by “Yes”

And He led you there.

“Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and He will establish your plans.”—Proverbs 16:3

Sometimes, when it comes to the “God dreams” in our hearts… it’s almost like we have to “dare” to dream them with God.

To actually dream them in our hearts, with God, can be a bit intimidating, it can be scary.

Because often, these kinds of dreams are “impossible”…. but with God, anything He asks us to do, will be made possible, in Him. 🏃🏻‍♀️☀️

I think what Nehemiah says in Chapter 2, verse 20, sums it up perfectly when it comes to dreaming with God:

“The God of heaven Himself will prosper us, therefore we His servants will arise and build…”

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”—Jeremiah 29:11

Thank You, Father. 💝
