Dream a Little Dream...


My head's been flying off in all different direction lately "dreamin' dreams". I have this "clear your schedule, something's coming" feeling. I have an itch to "dive into" something. It's been a heart whisper to God. I think up ideas and my heart whisper's to Him and then I wait until another idea hits and then I start up again and so on...  Crazy?

"Take delight in the Lord and He will give you your heart's desires." ~Psalm 37:4

I've heard Psalm 37:4 used for all sorts of "dreams". But I think if you take the whole Bible in then you'll bump into Matthew 6:33 before you dream of that car that costs more than you paid for your house...

"But seek first His Kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be provided for you." ~Matthew 6:33

And Haggai 1...here's a taste in verse 9...

"You expected much, but then it amounted to little. When you brought the harvest to your house, I ruined it. Why?" This is the declaration of the Lord of Hosts. "Because My house still lies in ruins, while each of you is busy with his own house. 

We're Kingdom builders, building GOD'S Kingdom. As your delight is in Him, you start dreaming with Him concerning the things that you learn are HIS priorities. The exciting part? God is All Powerful and All Mighty and He is a Miracle Maker and we get to be a part of building His UNSHAKABLE Kingdom! Around town or around the world, God uses people to build His Kingdom, to bring people to Himself, to Heal the Nations! And He provides for it all!

So dream and dream BIG! 

Have you ever thought of this? What would you do for in service to God if you KNEW it could not fail and you KNEW you would have the resources?? 

Would you start an orphan care ministry? Adopt? Would you plant a church? Would you reach out to help the homeless? Would you start city gardens to feed the hungry?  Serve in another country? Would you give away a million dollars to your favorite ministry?  

Then go back to that verse I started with...

"Take delight in the Lord and He will give you your heart's desires." ~Psalm 37:4

What is that "heart's desire", that dream of what you would do for the King of Kings? It might just be that thing He would desire to do through YOU. Maybe it wasn't YOUR idea, but His. Cool right?
