Don’t stop dreaming because God does not cease to give you the best.
Don’t stop dreaming because the poorest man in this world is not the man without money but the man without a dream.
I am echoing this powerful words from the one I consider my life mentor, Bo Sanchez.
Today, I would like to share what he preached at the Feast today in the second talk of this month’s series I am a Miracle Worker — Receive.
We are not just called to give the best to God; we are also called to receive the best from Him.
We are called to dream!
But it is not just dreaming. We should dream properly.
Why? Because some, if not most, dreams fail. And there are three reasons why dreams fail:
First, wrong time. There are times when dreamers seem to fail because they do not reach their big dreams. However, note that at times, it’s not the size of the dream that’s not achievable – at times, it’s the schedule.
Don’t rush. God is not in a hurry. His priority is not the dream but the dreamer.
But here’s a word of caution: while you are advised not to rush, do not be late. Just be on time.
The second reason, wrong talent.
Don’t try to accomplish things that are not aligned with your competence, potential, or core gift.
Build your dream on your strength.
Use your unique talent to your unique dream.
Third reason, wrong trust.
You should trust in the Lord.
Psalm 3 declares: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.”
There are two levels of trusting God:
The first level of trusting God is believing that He will answer your prayer.
The second level of trust God is believing that He will answer your prayer the best way.
We are called to trust God that He will answer our prayers in His way, in His time.
Yes, when we dream, let us be clear, let us be specific, let us put details in our dreams. But at the end of the day, we have to surrender to Him these dreams.
Not all of your prayers will be answered. Otherwise, it will result to a huge disaster.
Think of the the time when you prayed of this gorgeous girl that you thought the one and asked God, even begged Him, to give you this girl but then He didn’t. And you were painfully devastated and asked why. You mourned.
But months later, you were rejoicing that you did not end up with that girl. Because what you first thought was the best, was actually the worst.
Think of other more instances in your life that you questioned why, then later on found the answer why.
Those justifies all those unanswered prayers.
Because God gives the best and He wants us to receive only the best.
Live your life, young mind!
