God-Given Dream - Part Two

Joseph had a dream, and when he told it to his brothers, they hated him all the more. –Genesis 37:5 NIV

Maybe your God-given dream is buried within because of fear, procrastination, or rejection. Perhaps you shared your wishful vision with others, but they did not believe in you or your abilities. Regardless of their unbelief, do not allow the dream that God has given you to remain dormant. He has a purpose for it that only you can fulfill. Great ambitions are realized when you seek God, step out in faith, and take action. Is it time to start writing that manuscript, composing those lyrics, or signing up for that mission trip? When you partake in the plan your Father has destined for you, you become goal-driven and life becomes more fulfilling. God’s Word says, “Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a dream fulfilled is a tree of life” (Proverbs 13:12 NLT). As you do your part, God is working behind the scenes on your behalf. The dream will not become a reality overnight; but if you diligently work at it, the Lord will line you up with the right people, resources, and opportunities at each intersection of your journey.
