What is God’s dream for you? When God stitched together your detailed design, what was His dream and purpose for your life?
Before you were even born- while knitting together every piece and part of your being in your mother’s womb…
He had a dream.
Oh, my friends, He had a dream.
I am thinking about that a lot these days.
When I am in my quiet moments of prayer, I ask:
“Lord, what is your dream for me? Show me how to live it.”
I can envision our Creator forming each one of us, carefully adding this trait and that- this gift for you and that gift for me. I wonder how He chooses so meticulously for each one of us, sewing millions of unique and distinguishable threads together to birth a new creation in His image.
I wonder if the Heavenly Hosts sing while He does His work.
I long to know the mysteries of His Divinity- It’s so far from our own understanding, it’s impossible to comprehend how He sculpts and refines each one of us to fit perfectly in His plan. I constantly question just how He decides each conception and the magnificent purpose through His design and delivery.
And yet, beyond our world, there is a battle raging on against us. As we plunge into this war from the moment of birth… I believe God’s dream gets hit hard by the attacks from the enemy’s fire.
To name a few.
And I wonder how many times He cries out in rage for all the wounds inflicted on us as we travel through the war-torn landscape. His eyes on every turn we try to navigate and attempt to survive. I wonder if His Dream for us shifts at each fight and His plan gets altered in our plight.
“I know that you can do all things;
no purpose of yours can be thwarted. Job 42:2 NIV
Apparently, we need not worry about such things.
Sometimes I forget that God is, well, God.
If He already set our paths before us, then His Dreams for us are still in place.
If He Dreamed it, then surely our Creator believes that we are worthy and able and perfectly designed to live it.
I want to discover His dreams for my life. I want Him to reveal His Heavenly hope for all he dreamed me to be. And although the war rages on, I will march forward, fully armed with all He created me to be, into the gunfire that ensues against His Will.
His dream for each one of us will rise up from the rubble of life and straight into His Divine Purpose. And perhaps the tough terrain equips us to carry out His plan. If God knew this day, then He surely allowed it to happen for a reason. His dream for each one of us is built on solid, sovereign ground. With each prayerful step we take, we can trust in the path He paved.
Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be. Psalm 139: 16 NIV
God is waiting anxiously for us to live out His Dream. He knows our potential.
How God created you is entirely unique to the dream He dreamed for you. Isn’t that the most profound and incredible revelation?
It’s so very personal.
I can just picture it…
The heavens weeping when we fall, shifting the universe just so, in order for us to survive.
Angels rejoicing when we pull ourselves back up, pouring new wisdom in who we are to be, rendering a revelation that propels us toward God’s Dream.
The Holy Spirit moving people in perfect place and time- lifting us up, carrying us on, and propelling us forward toward His Purpose.
We are such intricate creations, designed specifically to go forth and live out His Dream.
Nothing in this world is more important to Him. Nothing can thwart His plan.
No pain is too great.
No failure is too big.
No brokenness too… broken.
His Dream lives on through it all.
So I continue to pray with a profound realization that my Lord has a dream.
The best prayer each one of us can offer is:
“Lord, what is Your dream for me? Show me how to live it.”
Oh sweet friends, can you even imagine God’s Dream for you?
I wonder if you can.
