Dare to Walk Into Your Dreams

Updated on August 31, 2019
He walks with me and He talks with me and He tells me I am His own. And the voice I hear as I tarry there, no other has ever known.

Are you a dreamer and a truth seeker? I'm pretty sure we all have dreams we want to see fulfilled. Dreams that are personal, and dreams that are God sent . Today I'm focusing on God sent dreams. God dreams remind me of Joseph's life story in the book of Genesis. There's so much to learn from his life. For any who aren't familiar with his story, you can find it in the Bible beginning at Genesis 37.

We know that scripture makes it clear that God always knows the end from the beginning. But I've learned from Joseph's example that the adventure of walking through the middle to the end will be a long and often cloudy process. If we study the example of Joseph's life we can see that his dream made him different. No one he loved understood it. He had to put his dream on the shelf, so to speak. He had to walk through life with his God dream huge in his heart but never having any companion who he could share his heart with. Joseph tried sharing his dream with his brothers but there was only scorn. I think after that he kept it to himself.

Then look what happened to him.. The pit. Then jail. Then false accusation from one who had been a friend. But, finally, the palace. It was said that "The word of the Lord tried him"

We know now that the end result was incredibly awesome! But also remember that while he was walking his dream out he had no real understanding of how it would end. He didn't know any details at the time.

I'm seeing some of the fine points..I see from his story that what is hugely real to us can become a point of disconnect from the ones we love and walk near. We're misunderstood. We do the best we know how but we learn to keep our thoughts and dreams mostly private. For such a long time it was between him and the Lord. No one knew him for what He was in God's sight. It's proof that what heaven sees in us is so amazing; it separates us from the common. It's a paradox, a secret. We have to accept that we're made fools among men for a time. Our dream is real and it's huge and it's alive but it's ignored. It makes me laugh and it reminds me of an old story about secrets and social graces. Something that is always there; it's very big to us but it's hidden, we ignore it. Like an elephant in the room that we all walk around, pretending it isn't really there. We're not really pretenders it's just that many are too immature to bear deep truth. So we stay hidden under his shadow.

But we are as Joseph, we have a true God dream to hold fast to. And, like Joseph the God given fire of the living hope of our dream will keep us. The life of the dream helps us with the daily hard realities of injustice and persecution on the way.

Do you carry dreams which you know to be God given? I do. I have a dream. I have true words from heaven and true visions. It has to do with becoming a part of God's work in bringing salvation for the souls of men.


Here's a beautiful song with a beautiful way to say what I'm trying to say..



Keep your dream alive. Sing to yourself about it

Godly dreams are not a fantasy, but are true heart visions that we carry. The dream is real and we must learn to give thanks in times of small beginnings and to keep the faith in the One who sent the dream. We must co-operate with the Lord in walking it out His way. And when we do that we will walk into new places where our dream will begin to be understood and visible to others. This is a sweet place to be! We will say to ourselves and to others. "the enemy meant all he sent for evil, but my God has turned it all around for the saving of many souls alive"

Let's set our hopes on the Lord Jesus Christ. He is the wonder of our lives, our ever present help in any trouble. When no one else understands us, he does! He alone knows and can fulfill the secret things of our hearts. I will keep my heart singing as I wait patiently for the time to cross the streams which carry me to my dreams.
