Part One of “God-Inspired Dreams”
Sometimes God gives us a dream. A wonderful, amazing dream.
Maybe it’s a dream to do something unique, something special for God: A calling to sing, or to write, or starting a ministry.
Or it could be something personal, like the dream of having children, or embarking on a fulfilling career, or marrying a spouse that qualifies as a bonafide “soul mate.”
Yet, I’ve noticed something about the dreams that God gives to His children, and it’s something very surprising:
When God gives a special dream to one of His children …
He often lets it die.
Before you click away, let me ask you a few questions:
- Has this ever happened to you?
- Has God breathed a special dream into your heart?
- Have you been blessed with a a glimpse of attaining that dream, reaching for it … only to have it sift through your fingers like sand?
- Have you given up (or all but given up) on that dream?
If this has happened to you, then you are in very good company. I, too, have been given a special dream. I’ve seen it, touched it and tasted it … only to have it disappear and wither away.
Or so it seemed.
I have to be honest, this has happened not just once, but several times. Each time I saw evidence of reaching the dream, and then the reality of it vanished before my eyes.
I became frustrated. Then despondent. And yes, even angry at times … that is until I looked into Scripture and found that I was not alone.
In fact, God’s been inspiring dreams—and taking them away—for centuries. But always for a very special reason.
And typically, before the story was done, God had a surprise twist in the end that changed everything.
I’m starting a new series that explores why God would give and take away a dream, and why we can be encouraged that God is up to something amazing. Something that will not only bless us, but will glorify Him in amazing ways …and all in the midst of YOUR life.

If the dream that God has placed in your heart seems
impossibly far away… even to the point of death …
you just might be CLOSER to it than ever before.
God is up to something HUGE in your life … Are you ready for it?
