Dreams, we all have them. Dreams are like the imagination of an adult, but even children have them. Dreams come down to two different definitions. Dreams are the events that transpire when we sleep, or our hopes for the future. When I was young my dream, or my hope, was to become a carpenter and make wood furniture. While I still make little pieces of furniture for my wife, I am not a carpenter. I am a pastor. Why? Because that is what God wants me to be.
I was listening to a song the other day that said, “Let Me dream for you.” Notice that the “M” in “Me” is capitalized. The song was as if God was talking. It talks about what possibly could the hopes and dreams of King David or Mary, Jesus’ Mother, have been. The song continues by exploring what God actually accomplished through them. If you compare the scenarios, letting God dream for you is the way to go. That got me thinking, am I letting God dream for me? Let’s think about that for a moment… Think about the dreams that you have for your life… What if you let your dreams go and asked God to dream for you? What amazing journey would He take you on?
Psalm 25 says, “Show me Your ways, O LORD; Teach me Your paths. Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; On You I wait all the day long.” (NKJV) David asks God to dream for him and guide him on life’s path. Are you still dreaming for your own life? Letting God dream for you is following His plan for your life. Are you allowing that to happen?
Are you dreaming or is God dreaming for you?
