When God weaved together your deliberate design, what did He dream for you? When He created every particle and piece of who you are in your mother’s womb, what was His Vision for your life? He had a dream… Oh my friends, He had a dream.
I am thinking about that a lot these days. When I am in my quiet moments of prayer, I ask.
“Lord, what is your dream for me?”
I picture His Perfect Power and detailed miraculous work in forming each one of us, carefully adding this trait and that- this gift for you, and that gift for me. I wonder how He chose so meticulously, threading each tiny fiber of our being to birth a new creation in His image. I wonder if the Heavenly Hosts sang while He did His work. I long to know the mysteries of His Divinity- His Perfectly painted picture of where each one of us fits in His Masterpiece. I constantly question just how He decided each conception and the magnificent purpose behind His Delivery.
Beyond our world, there is a battle raging on for us. As we plunge into this war from the moment of birth… I believe God’s dream gets hit hard with the attacks from the enemy’s fire.
To name a few.
And I wonder how many times He cried out in rage for all the wounds inflicted on us, and all the war torn landscape He’s watched us navigate and attempt to survive. I wonder if His Dream for us faded at each fight, and His Divine Power retreated in our plight. Do you think He would give up His dream?
I want to discover His original dreams for my life. I want Him to reveal His Heavenly Hope for all he dreamed me to be. And although the war rages on, I will march forward armed with His Plan and His Power- into the gunfire that ensues against His Will.
In time, perhaps His dream for me will rise up from this rubble of life and straight into His Divine Purpose.
His dream for you too…
Could we dare to dream His Dream?
If He Dreamed it, then surely our Creator believes that we are worthy and able and perfectly designed to live it. If He already set our paths before us, then His Dreams for us are still in place.
God is waiting anxiously for us to live out His Dream. It’s personal, people. He knows our potential, and His formation of you is entirely unique to the dream He dreamed for you. Isn’t that the most profound and incredible revelation?
I envision in my little limited mind…
The heavens weeping when we fall, shifting the universe just so, in order for us to survive.
Angels rejoicing when we pull ourselves back up, rendering a revelation that propels us toward God’s Dream.
God’s spirit moving people in perfect place and time- lifting us up, carrying us on, and propelling us forward toward His Purpose.
We are such intricate creations, designed specifically to go forth and live out His Dream.
Nothing in this world is more important to Him. Nothing can thwart His plan.
No pain is too great.
No failure is too big.
No hopelessness too weak.
His Dream lives on through it all.
So I continue to pray with a profound realization that my Lord has a dream.
The best prayer each one of us can offer is:
“Lord, what is Your Dream for me?”
Oh sweet friends, can you even imagine God’s Dream for you?
I wonder if you can.
