God put dreams in us – But what we can picture is only a mirror image of what He actually has in store for us…

Confession time:πŸ™ŠYou guys, I struggle with dreaming, like all-aboard-the-struggle-bus type of struggle. I like to keep my feet on the ground( probably a little dug-in, just for extra measure.😊)I like to have a plan and just not any plan, a realistic and practical plan. But lately I’ve been realising the importance of dreaming because God uses the dreams He puts into His people to reveal Himself to the world.

I’m the one with the notebook full of business plans, kickstarts, visions for non-profit causes and ways to make this world better -πŸ’₯- Whenever I land on the dream spectrum – I KNOW THAT GOD IS DREAMING FAR MORE FOR ME. It might simply be a mirrored reflection of what He actually has planned for me. But rest assured, if I’m breathing dreams like air, they aren’t too much – And to dreamers (like me) when you are asking for big impossible (and probably impractical dreamsπŸ˜‰) He’s got them too….

Joseph brothers heard his dream and they sought to stop it. Like them many don’t realise that when God places His hands on someone, then nothing can stop what He wants to do through him/her. The brothers plotted against Joseph, threw him in an empty well and eventually sold him into slavery. They put animal blood on his robe to make it seem like he had been killed by wild animals.

Even in the pit, Joseph grasped God’s vision until it came to pass. What they failed to realise was that favor was not found in his clothing or his position. But Favor comes from God, and He gives it out to whom He chooses. Genesis: 39: 2-4 reminds us that, “The lord was with Joseph, and he became a successful man, and he was in the house of his Egyptian master. His master saw that the LORD was with him, and the LORD caused all that he did to succeed in his hands.”

However, can I just say, from my heart, that I pray daily over the desires of my heart. There is peace that comes from knowing that God’s knowledge is limitless, perfect and complete. He sees my future — He reveals the deep and hidden things that I do not see or know. And God is no stranger to my inner most thoughts. He loves me and wants to hear from me and that gives me HOPE. And this girl right here loves her some hope!!! Amen! God bless.πŸ’•

Blessings and Love….😊

  1. Well written! Let us never stop dreaming because God dreams BIG!

    Today is a celebratory day for my Ohio family. My daughter and her husband have long dreamed of adding a child to their family. Facing the stark reality of no children by birth, God had much bigger dreams. He is in control.

    We officially welcomed a wonderful daughter and granddaughter after she was adopted today. Praise God!

  2. I have always struggled with dreams versus desires. I know God has put some dreams in our hearts for us to work towards, however if it is a worldly desire of my heart is this God as well? You have definitely got me thinking about these topics and what is from God and what is from me. I definitely need to pray over this one! Great thought provoking post! I can’t wait for the next one!

  3. 24 years ago, I dreamed that one day I would be able to walk again. Nothing earth-shattering. I just wanted to be able to walk to the bathroom by myself. God heard that dream, answered it a million fold for now, not only can I walk… I can DANCE! Amen! and Thank you, God!

  4. Thank you for sharing this message, Joseph’s story in the Bible is one of my favorite ones! I agree in what you say, β€œBut Favor comes from God, and He gives it out to whom He chooses.” Nothing and no one can stop God’s plans and favor on His children. God bless you!

  5. Indeed, God gives us dreams, ideas, thoughts, etc.

    It is up to us if we want to bring them to life or keep them hidden in our minds forever.

    In fact, Joel Osteen has mentioned that many people have died and have taken their hidden talents plus secrets to their graves.

    We would never know what great things they could have done for the world.

    But, we still have enough chances to follow our hearts and make our dreams come true.

  6. It wasn’t until I understood this, that it became easier to surrender my will- my dreams, hopes,aspirations, in order to do His Will. In the beginning we do not see, whatever our dreams are, His dreams will always be bigger and better. Or can we outdream God?

      1. Amen. In order to do this, God provides us many ‘opportunities’ that arrive in our lives when He will ask us to do something, surrender, say goodbye to, give, go do, and He will not give us all the details in order that there is an opportunity for our trust in Him to grow. How so? Because we have no other choice if we are to ‘act’ in accordance with His direction, since we are missing many important details as to why He is asking this, we must Trust Him, in that moment, and when we do… What miracles follow!!

  8. This was really nice to read. Thanks! I pray a lot over my dreams, too. And I pray for my very life, too. My dream will be lived out in my life…where I’d want God to be with me.
