This message is specifically for those who have livelong God-given dreams which they have not yet realized.
Long Held Dreams
We often have dreams about what we want to do, and be in life. Sometimes these dreams start out in us when we are much younger, and in some, as far back as when we were children.
Over the years, the reality of life and the physical circumstances surrounding our existence might choke these dreams out from our minds. As we grow older, the cares of life, and the responsibilities it brings, keep coming at us, and eventually many forget their dreams altogether, or remember them but never believe they will ever come to pass.
Whatever that God-given dream may be, whether it is simply about being happy in life, building your own family, building a business, owning a successful career, running for office, being a mentor to young people, helping the less privileged, owning communication satellites, etc., do not let go of them.
Get Things Done
You may need to change certain aspects of your dream, as you factor in for instance, the unique set of gifts God has given you, the need to relocate to another region, add an educational qualification, change certain habits, etc., but overall, you must hold on to your dreams and reach for them. You must protect your dream.
God created us to dream. Dreams properly realized are so beautiful to behold. You must also start taking practical steps to get you there. It is okay to start small, but you have to start. Remember that the race you are running is yours. Think about the things God has told you to do, and keep praying and taking the steps that you can take towards them.
Work diligently and allow your dream to set parts of your agenda. Keep your heart at peace, and your mind at rest. Keep going.
As you do the above, and more as he leads you, remember this:
- Philippians 1.6: And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns. [NLT https://biblehub.com/nlt/philippians/1.htm]
