Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in The Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and He will make your paths straight.
Now that we know that our dreams come from God, why do you suppose he gives them to us? I mean, why would The Creator of The Universe, the one who sees all things, knows all things, and created all things, give us task in the form of dreams to accomplish in this life? After all, he’s God. He is fully capable of doing whatever he wants done, and he doesn’t need our help to do it. Wait, maybe that’s it! Maybe, it has nothing to do with needing our help as much as it does with wanting it. But, the question remains. Why? Well, I believe there are three good reasons, and transforming our hearts is the first.
See, although our gifts point us in the direction of our dreams and help us to achieve them, they will not be enough to see them to fruition. In order for them to become a reality we will need to expand our thinking, learn new skills, develop trust in ourselves and most importantly, in The Lord. After all, our dreams started with him, and will require us to depend on him to see them through. This process will not only change our understanding of things, but transform our hearts, too.
I, for one, can certainly attest to this having built this website on my own. I knew that The Lord had called me to creating a blog to share his message with the world, but I did not know the first thing about building a website. I felt confident about writing the content, yet inadequate about the very platform that I would be using to share it. Honestly, the development of it was quite frustrating at first. But, with time, persistence & prayer, I launched the blog on December 31, 2018. The project required me to trust him completely, and to lean not on my own understanding of things, for certain. As a result I gained a wealth of knowledge & skills, and a website that I am proud to share.
On that note, I want to leave you with this. The Lord has given you a dream to fulfill, and he wants to transform your heart in the pursuit of it. This dream is unique to you. No one, but you can fulfill it the way that you can. That is, the way that you and The Lord, together can. That said, you have a choice . You can choose to see it through, or to let it pass. What will it be? Choose wisely! For one will bring you great joy & fulfillment, and the other…a load of regret.
