Do you have something in your spirit that you desire and wish you could have in your life but your circumstances tell you can’t? Dreaming is seeing something in your heart that is attractive to you and that you desire to have. Those positive dreams are placed in our heart by God because His desire is to see us blessed. Every person, has a dream that stays somewhere within us and how we respond to it is what makes the difference.
To change your life from your current to your desired position, you need to do certain things. To start with, you need to know where you desire to be clearly. A single mother of two child was working a low paying job while she raised her children. She desired to live better and provide better, as well as work less in order to spend more time with her children. However, her circumstances constantly screamed at her that she couldn’t. Those she shared her desire with that knew her couldn’t see how and they discouraged her. But she was aware of her unchanging desire deep in her heart so she decided to do something about it and it worked.
To succeed in changing your life for the better, you will need to be prepared to do things most people won’t do for a short period, in order to live the rest of your life in a way most people can’t. You may think your circumstances are too low to get lower but you will need to sacrifice with a clear goal in mind. It might mean working hard and sleeping less for a period, it might mean cutting down your social time or changing your feeding habits. Be willing to do what you need to do to get where you want to be.
Be careful who you share your dreams with. Sometimes, not sharing at all works the best. Remember Joseph shared his dream with his brothers and they sold him away instead of celebrating his dream. Others, when you share your dream with them, they run with it while they do everything within their power to hinder you. Many things can go wrong in sharing your dream with the wrong person and many times, we don’t know who those wrong people until it’s too late. But even when that happens, like Joseph did not give up, do not give up. God will eventually complete the good work He begun in you
Most of all, stay in prayer because God’s guidance will get you to your destination faster and more smoothly than you can ever get yourself. Our circumstances might seem limiting but our God has no limits to what He can do with your life if you depend on Him. There is no dream that is too big for God make a reality in your life. Isaiah 55:8-9,
“8For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” declares the LORD. 9″For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways And My thoughts than your thoughts.” (NIV)
