As believers and servants of the Lord, we have dreams we would like to accomplish and great things we want to do for Him. It is not really just any dream, but it is God’s dream for our lives that we should pursue. The best way to find God’s dream for our lives is to seek to know God better every day.
The bible says in Philippians 2:13, For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him. (NLT)
We have to spend time with God too, so that we end up having His “desire” and “power’ to do what He pleases.
We are to work to build His kingdom but we must not forget that it is God working in us that brings the results.
God wants to grow you up for His purposes. We grow up by getting into God’s word, by learning to pray and by following Him with purity and obedience in our lives. As we do this, He begins to guide us, then, eventually, He promotes us and then uses us for His purposes, for His big dreams for our lives.
God wants to work in you so that one day He can work through you in a mighty way.
16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge – that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. (NIV)
When we spend time with Him, we begin to become like Him, showing “love” and being filled to the measure of His “fullness.”
My prayer is, “Lord I want to know you, so that I can make you known in this world.”
