Building God's Dreams
People always talk about building their “dream home.” But did you know that you can begin to build dreams out of God’s Word? A good foundation for them is Deuteronomy 28. I can tell you from experience, it is good dream-building material.
God intended for man to be a dreamer. He built into us the capacity to do it. But He didn’t intend for us to be limited by natural thoughts and circumstances. He meant for us to dream beyond them.
That’s what Abraham did. He locked into God’s dream—and it was bigger than anything he could have thought on his own.
It will be that way for you too. God’s dream for you is bigger than your dream for yourself. It is exceedingly, abundantly beyond all you can ask or think! (See Ephesians 3:20.)
Once you get that dream inside you, things will begin to change. No, all your problems won’t disappear overnight any more than mine did. But you’ll respond to them differently.
When they rise up in front of you and threaten to defeat you, God’s dream will stir in your heart.
You’ll start saying, “Wait just a minute. I’m the head, not the tail. I’m blessed, not cursed. I don’t have to tolerate this situation. I happen to be a child of the King Himself. He sets my table in the presence of my enemies. No weapon formed against me can prosper!” (See Deuteronomy 28:13; Psalm 23:5 and Isaiah 54:17.)
Building your dream home is great! But building God’s dreams inside of you, and then seeing those dreams come to pass is glorious!
