Do you have big dreams?
Each of us is uniquely designed and created with a specific purpose. We’re given desires of things we want to accomplish here on earth and when we work as unto God, our work brings glory to Him. The Psalmist says, “Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.” (Psalm 37:4) Only after first delighting in Him can we experience the joy of fulfilled desires. His desires become ours. They can be described as dreams we want to accomplish. They excite, energize and propel us to study and work hard. They set people apart in achieving what is excellent rather than mediocre. And, they bring about discoveries that benefit mankind. Parents, encourage your children to run after their dreams. Be their biggest cheerleader! They need your affirmation to develop the confidence and courage to imagine and chase their goals.
Perhaps you have unfulfilled dreams or undiscovered ones. Don’t despair. Ask the Lord to reveal and help you fulfill an exciting ambition in your life. Get in shape physically so you can work with energy and hope. Saturate yourself in learning all you can about areas of your greatest interest. Start engaging in related activities and reading biographies and autobiographies of those in the field of your interest. Listen to their podcasts. Try reaching out to those you desire to emulate, and as you dream, remember, “The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.” (Proverbs 16:9)
