How to find the dream?

Sunday, August 16, 2015

Have you had dreams running through your mind, surfacing now and then to fill you with excitement? A God given dream is relentless in your soul.

It inspires devotion like the devotion a parent has for a child: you would give your very life just to see it grow and find fulfillment.

A God-given dream is a bothersome thing: it won't leave you alone! It keeps bobbing to the surface of your heart, clamouring for your mind's attention.

If that's how your dream behaves, then it is probably from God. You also know it's a God-given dream if you are willing to devote every ounce of energy and every minute of your days to it.

How to find the dream? 

Romans 12:6 says we each have gifts. God gave you the gifts you have; you didn't choose them.

Desire points us to our dreams. God uses desire to accomplish what He wants on this earth.


God speaks to us through desires. Many Christians have come to think that their motives and desires are corrupt and untrustworthy, but the Bible says that if any man is in Christ Jesus, he is a new creature. Old things pass away, and all things become new (see 2 Cor. 5:17). That includes our desires!

The Bible says you can have the mind of Christ within you. So what does it say about your desires? It says your desires, when you become a new creature, are changed. That's why God can say, "I want to give you the desires of your heart."

Many people pursue dreams built on things that will fade away. They dream of fame, but fame never lasts. Others build dreams on wealth, health or power, but none of these last more than a few decades at most. A dream cannot be built on ego. It cannot be built on tradition--because the company expects it or your family expects it. None of these foundations will support your dream.

Your dream must be built on human need. Will it help people? Improve lives? Alleviate human suffering? Does it fill a need nobody else is filling? If so, you can be sure that dream is from God. The secret to happiness in life is pouring into other people.

Fulfillment comes when you use those gifts for Him in service of your dream. Your gifts are the key to discovering God's will in your life.
