If you answered yes to those two questions, then by all means, follow your dream and put your heart and effort into making it happen. Even more importantly, ask God to empower you by His Spirit to make it into reality.
There are many verses in God’s Word that speak of God’s blessings on us. One instance where a woman pursued her dream and excelled in many areas of life is found in Proverbs 31:10-31. She is called a virtuous woman and is praised for a long list of worthy achievements. Near the end, the key to her success is found in verse 30: “But a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised.” First and foremost, this woman sought to please the Lord – and after that, she also worked hard to make her dreams come true.
“And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work,” 2 Corinthians 9:8.
Another dream-come-true is found in a short, sweet passage about a man named Jabez. He lived thousands of years ago, yet had dreams that were not too different from our own. Jabez called unto God and humbly asked His blessing to make his dreams come true. Here’s what he prayed: “Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain! So God granted him what he requested” 1 Chronicles 4:10.
Wow! This man knew the Source for blessing in this world and he went straight to that Source to ask, not only for blessing, but to live the right kind of life in the midst of that blessing.
You have a dream? Place that dream in the loving, omnipotent Hands of the Father and ask Him to help make your dream come true. “Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you” Matthew 6:33.
