God-Given Dream – Part Two


Joseph had a dream, and when he told it to his brothers, they hated him all the more.

–Genesis 37:5 NIV

Maybe your God-given dream is buried within because of fear, procrastination, or rejection. Perhaps you shared your wishful vision with others, but they did not believe in you or your abilities.

Regardless of their unbelief, do not allow the dream that God gave you to remain dormant. He has a purpose for it and only you can fulfill it. Great ambitions come true when you seek God, step out in faith, and take action. Is it time to start writing that manuscript, compose those lyrics, or sign up for that mission trip?

When you partake in your Father’s dream for you, life becomes more fulfilling and your destiny begins to unfold. God’s Word says, “Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a dream fulfilled is a tree of life” (Proverbs 13:12 NLT).

As you do your part, God is working behind the scenes on your behalf. It won’t happen overnight, but if you diligently work at it, He will line you up with the right people, resources and opportunities at each starlight intersection of your journey.

Prayer Focus

  • Thank God for His plans for your life, and His ability to bring them about.
