Do you place enough importance on the desires and dreams of your heart? If you don’t, I wonder why not?
Perhaps you have never realised that God takes your desires very seriously, they are important to Him. In fact, the Bible makes it very clear that He gave them to you for a purpose. Below are a few verses which prove it!
The King rejoices in your strength! You have granted him the desires of his heart – Psalm 21:1
Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a dream fulfilled is a tree of life – Proverbs 13:12
I continue to dream about a revival in my day which transforms our nation – John Wesley
“ALL my desires are before you God, my hope is not hidden from you” – Did you notice that David told God ALL his desires about EVERY aspect of his life. (Psalm 20:4)
“Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a dream fulfilled is a tree of life (Proverbs 13:12). This Psalm is warning that if you don’t follow the dreams of your heart, it makes us sick or depressed. Instead, God wants us to have dreams fulfilled, which is a tree of life!
“May God give you the desires of your heart, and make all your plans succeed” – This is David’s prayer for you! (Psalm 20:4)
Why would David pray that, if your dreams were not important to God? The truth is, they are! This is one of the ways God speaks to us (as well as the Bible) and God placed them within you so that you would discover and fulfil them.
Have you ever said to God “What do you want me to do with my life”? I know you have, because we all wonder that. Well, the desires within you (which God put there) are a huge clue to His plans for your life.
God gave you dreams to not only enrich your own life, but to impact the lives of others for His Kingdom. Your dreams have “Kingdom-Assignments” and when you step into them, life is released to others and they are drawn to God. How amazing is that!
John Wesley knew this. He said “I continue to dream about a revival in my day, which transforms our nation”. And as he pursued that dream, God used him, and the world was changed and many drawn to Jesus.
Not all of us will be itinerant preachers, but ALL of us have been given dreams by God.
What are your dreams?
God wants you to discover dreams for every area of your life. He also has big dreams for you to discover which are connected to your calling and destiny. Your dreams release a message of love from the Father’s heart to the world. Your dreams were given for you to change the world in some way. Nothing is more exciting in life than discovering God’s plans for your life, and then fulfilling them. This is something which is eternal!

You are never too old to dream and neither have you made too many mistakes!
