“God has a dream for your life – a unique part to play in His unfinished story.” Dave Smith. Senior Pastor at Kingsgate Community Church in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, Leicester and London. I believe living the dream puts you in a zone where nothing else matters; you tend to release control and live out God’s best for you. Watch this, living the dream comes with immense challenges and Josephs story paints a picture of what living the dream looks like, hence Dave’s book will most definitely enlighten your understanding, therefore I will encourage you to get the book, “Living the Dream.” Dave Smith.
- A Scripted Life Lives the Dream
- What does it mean to live the dream? Simply put, it is living a life of purpose as designed by God. Watch this, living the dream is not the absence of pressure or challenges. Jesus lived His dream and it wasn’t without personal challenges to His life and ministry, hence Jesus said, “Then He went off by Himself, about a stone’s throw away, and falling on His knees, prayed in these words—“Father, if You are willing, take this cup away from Me—but it is not My will, but Yours, that must be done.” Read Luke 22:42 (PHILLIPS). I encourage you to read the entire chapter of Luke 22 to gain the full perspective. Jesus also said, “The food that keeps Me going is that I do the will of the One who sent Me, finishing the work He started.” Read John 4:34 (MSG). These two verses of scripture clearly show Jesus’s desire to living out His dream, and there was nothing more important to Him than fulfilling the purpose for which He came.
- There is a dimension and path a dreamer takes, it’s a path of adventure, persistence, focus and undying conviction. There is an image etched in the heart of the dreamer which grows bigger and bigger, till its the only picture he or she sees. See what the Bible says, “Make a careful exploration of who you are and the work you have been given, and then sink yourself into that.” Read Galatians 6:4 (MSG). Well, you might be reading this text, and saying ‘Oh my dreams are broken,’ Listen to what C. S Lewis said, “For broken dream, the cure is dream again; and deeper.” I encourage you to get off the floor, wipe those tears, look in the mirror of God’s word and embrace the greatness of God’s grace, His unfailing, irrevocable love and start living the dream again.
There is a dream the Lord has placed in your heart to bring to the fore, a charge to keep and a God to glorify, so why don’t you start from where you are and start living God’s dream.
Dear Lord Jesus, thank You for placing Your loving arms on and around me. Thank You for putting Your dream in my heart. Today, I dare to dream because Your grace has made every provision available for me to fulfil Your dream for my life. I am truly eternally grateful, and no words in the English vocabulary can express my gratitude. Thank You, Lord Jesus.
