Three weeks into the new year, are you frustrated because a dream or a goal isnâ€™t happening the way you thought it would? Be passionate about your dreams, but donâ€™t let it become an idol. If thatâ€™s all you think about and youâ€™re not going to be happy unless it happens, then thatâ€™s out of balance. The fact is, sometimes you have to put that dream on the altar of prayer and let God direct your paths.
There are those who hold on to things so tightly, however, when you let them go, thatâ€™s when God can bring them to pass. If youâ€™ll release that frustration and not let it become the centre of your attention, thatâ€™s when God can move. Take that same time and energy to thank God and trust Him that Heâ€™s directing your steps, and watch how it opens the door for the desires of your heart.
Today, we have to remember, God already knows what we want and what we are in need of. Heâ€™s the One who put dreams and desires in us. We shouldnâ€™t be consumed with trying to make things happen. Instead, a greater act of faith is to be happy right where we are! Stay open and trust God because He has awesome plans in store for your future, despite your present situation!
â€œI tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat is planted in the soil and dies, it remains alone. But its death will produce many new kernels â€” a plentiful harvest of new lives.â€Â
(John 12:24, NLT)
Yahweh, thank You for placing dreams and desires in my life. Father, today I release those dreams and desires to You. God, I know that You have awesome amazing plans in store for my future, help me to learn to be patient, wait and trust that Your plans will unfold in every area of my life, in Christâ€™s Name! Amen.
