Dream On! Do you know God loves it when you dream and pursue your dreams. When you do that, you are behaving like God! After all, He had a dream to create the universe, and He did it. He had a dream to create you, and He did it. He had a dream to have fellowship with you, and He did it when He sent Jesus to walk this earth with us. God loves to see you dream! When you do that, you are using your imagination and spirit to tap into His Spirit! His Spirit is limitless! His Spirit is unconquerable! His Spirit is unquenchable! His Spirit is the power behind everything that ever was or ever will be created, and it is LIVING IN YOU! Is there anything you can’t do with God at your side? Absolutely not!
If God didn’t want you to dream and to step out in faith to act on those dreams, why would He have given you His Words such as:
I can do all this through him who gives me strength. Philippians 4:13 (NIV)
With your help I can advance against a troop; with my God I can scale a wall. Psalm 18:29 (NIV)
Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. 1 John 4:4 (KJV)
Your dreams lie in the realm of the possible! Go after them. Pursue them as God pursues you! God has told us that all things are possible with Him (Mark 10:27), and that we are created in His image (Genesis 1:27: Eph. 4:24). We also know that He is ageless and timeless, so your dreams are not bound by age or time. Since that is the case, you are never too old or too young to dream and to accomplish what God has given you a desire to do!
Do you know when you dream and pursue the desires God puts in your heart, you are setting your mind above the things of this world, above all of the “I can’ts” and the negative thinking that says “it won’t work,” or “there is no way.” God doesn’t think that way, and neither should we. He thinks expansively! He thinks in terms of possibility! He thinks like the conqueror He is and the conqueror He made you to be (Romans 8:37)! God has given you a new self, who is created in His image and who is renewed in His knowledge (Colossians 3:1-4, 10). With that combination, you can accomplish anything! So, dear ones, scale the wall! Jump over a troop! Go forth, and conquer! Dream on!
Commit all you do to God, and He will plant wonderful desires in your heart (Psalm 37:4-6). He will give you all you need to accomplish those desires, and He will undergird you and fill in the gaps for you. You will be complete, lacking nothing! He has plans to give you a good and desirable end as you pursue your dreams (Jeremiah 29:11)! Fear not! Only believe! Then step forth into God’s glorious dreams for your life!
Come to River City Church and reignite the dreams living on the inside of you!

If you have never made Jesus the Lord of your life and desire to, pray this: Dear God, I believe that Jesus is your Son, that He died on the cross for me and was resurrected for my redemption. I choose to make Jesus the Lord of my life. I thank you for forgiving me and for filling me with Your Holy Spirit. I thank You that I am Your child, that You are my Father, and that You have great things planned for me. Amen.
