If you could accomplish anything in the world – anything – what would it be? When was the last time you allowed yourself a moment to dream big about your life or your future?
As children we have dreams that are larger than life. Our imaginations can turn cardboard boxes into rocket ships on the moon and tree forts into a castle. The innocence of childhood places stars in our eyes that glisten as they gaze into the future. And then somewhere along the journey of life, we lose it. We become jaded and cynical. Those dreams we once had become suppressed and out of reach.
“That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither— whatever they do prospers.” – Psalm 1:3 NIV
God says that the person who delights in the Lord, will bear fruit in its due season. That means you! There is no expiration date on the dreams God has sown into your heart. According to the scripture above, not only will you bear fruit, but your leaves do not wither! This means that in ANY season of your life, no matter your age or circumstance, God will sustain you to give birth to those dreams. God will not plant a seed in your heart that will not bear fruit.
“Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.” – Psalm 37:4 NIV
Stay focused on the Lord. Seek Him and set your desires on Him. Living a God-first life, brings us into alignment with the purposes, plans and dreams God has for us.
