Are you like me and at times you feel like you missed the boat, because the dream you thought God put in your heart just sailed on by and left you standing on the shore, and all you could do was to wave as it passed you on by?
Maybe you think you’re too old. Mose’s dream journey did not begin until he was 80. Show me where God put an expiration date on dreams.
Maybe you think you don’t have enough education. Remember, God used a bunch of uneducated fishermen to turn the world upside down for Him. I think too often we’re trapped in the conventional thinking of this world. God says He chose the foolish things of his world to confound the wise.
So what do we do if our dream doesn’t happen the way we thought it should, or when we thought it should, or how we thought is should? Maybe our dream was too small. I’ve heard if we can accomplish our dream in our own strength without God, then our dream is too small. Or, maybe, we weren’t willing to pay the price and do our part with God to bring it to pass.
No matter what, I challenge you – dream again. Take a chance. Take the risk. Do what’s hard – it is worth it. Dream a God-sized dream whether you are 8 or 80, never, never, never stop dreaming. Dive into the Word, sit at His feet, and get dreaming. If you’re breathing it is not too late!
If you need to jump start your dream, I highly recommend reading “Chase the Lion” by Mark Batterson. It will reignite you fire! #chasethelion
