Part One of “God-Inspired Dreams”

Sometimes God gives us a dream. A wonderful, amazing dream.

Maybe it’s a dream to do something unique, something special for God: A calling to sing, or to write, or starting a ministry.

Or it could be something personal, like the dream of having children, or embarking on a fulfilling career, or marrying a spouse that qualifies as a bonafide “soul mate.”

Yet, I’ve noticed something about the dreams that God gives to His children, and it’s something very surprising:

When God gives a special dream to one of His children …
He often lets it die.

Before you click away, let me ask you a few questions:

  • Has this ever happened to you?
  • Has God breathed a special dream into your heart?
  • Have you been blessed with a a glimpse of attaining that dream, reaching for it … only to have it sift through your fingers like sand?
  • Have you given up (or all but given up) on that dream?

If this has happened to you, then you are in very good company.  I, too, have been given a special dream. I’ve seen it, touched it and tasted it … only to have it disappear and wither away.

Or so it seemed.

I have to be honest, this has happened not just once, but several times.  Each time I saw evidence of reaching the dream, and then the reality of it vanished before my eyes.

I became frustrated. Then despondent. And yes, even angry at times … that is until I looked into Scripture and found that I was not alone.

In fact, God’s been inspiring dreams—and taking them away—for centuries. But always for a very special reason.
And typically, before the story was done, God had a surprise twist in the end that changed everything.

If the dream that God has placed in your heart seems
impossibly far away… even to the point of death … 
you just might be CLOSER to it than ever before.
God is up to something HUGE in your life … Are you ready for it?
