Its amazing how God has given us the mind to think, dream and imagine. I have always been fascinated by this concept. It is indeed wonderful to dream, to dream of big, inconceivable and different things from your current situations. Dreams can be so close to our mind that we think they are almost happening yet so intangible when we reach our hands to touch them.
With our imaginations, we can create new things, ideas and future. Yet how often as humans we have felt our dreams have been shattered. How often we give up on those dreams as our waiting lamps go dim, our eyes filled with fear as we see our hope going slim!
Dreams can be wonderful, but also heart breaking, when we try to compare them with reality. So where do we draw the line as to how much we can dream? I guess, God has given us these thing freely and I think the best thing to do is to dream and let God decide which one He sees best fit. Aligning them with God’s Word can help.
As I pondered upon this, I read an email that I receive every week called “Word of the week” written by Zac Poonen. This week was titled “All-knowing, Almighty Power of Our God and Father”. I thought it was very fitting for this topic, especially the extract below…
Revelation.1:8 – “In verse 8, God refers to Himself as the Alpha and the Omega, the Almighty and ever-existing God. He was there right at the beginning, when nothing existed. He will be there right at the end of time. There is nothing that can ever take place anywhere at any time that is going to take God by surprise. Our Father not only knows the end from the beginning, being the Almighty God, He controls everything as well. Therefore we need have no fear whatsoever concerning the future.” – Zac Poonen
I believe that Father God has the best plan for us and we can trust Him wholly because He is our Almighty Father who has the whole world in His hands. 🙂
