I was listening to a sermon today during my quiet time, and in the sermon he was speaking on “Afraid of the battle”. He spoke about how God calls each of us for a purpose, and we shouldn’t be afraid to go fight for what God calls us to. As I was listening, God began to speak to me about how we all have things that God has placed in our heart and they’ve become dreams to us. Maybe God’s placed on your heart to open a shelter for the homeless, start a bible study in your church/home or possibly a book you need to write. Whatever it is for you, God speaks to us and places things on our heart for His purpose. The dreams He puts inside of us may sound completely crazy to us and we sure aren’t about to tell anyone about them because surely they will think we’ve lost it! But can I tell you that you can dream all day long but if we don’t go to work and fight for the dream, we are but merely dreamers for Christ. I personally don’t want to look back someday and see someone living the dream I was created for, and I sure don’t want to miss all the lives Christ could touch through me if only I’d been a doer and not a dreamer. So right now in this very moment, what is holding you back from living the dream God birthed in your heart? I don’t know your situation but I know the I AM and He will provide for you every step of the way on your journey. Trust Him, have faith He will see this through. I want to leave you with this quote from the sermon, “We’ll never have a testimony unless we’re willing to put a sling or a sword in our hand and fight”. May God’s favor be with you as you take a step of faith and begin to be a doer and not just a dreamer!
“But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves.” James 1:22
