And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.
When the Lord gives you a dream His intent is for you to steward it, not steal it. If you’re like most people, you’ve experienced the disappointment of dreams that haven’t come to pass. In most cases, when this has occurred, you’ve taken ownership of the dream rather than simply stewarding it. When you’re in covenant with the Lord you must never forget that He is the One who is in charge. He provides everything you’ll ever need to be successful and achieve any dream that He has placed in front of you as long as you see to it that it remains His. If you’re not careful and intentional, the dream will become your focus rather the Lord. If you hear the words, ‘MY dream’, ‘My calling’, ‘MY vision’, ‘MY gifting’, etc, coming out of your mouth, you need to check your heart and make sure that your life is still in complete submission to Him. As soon as you take control you’re destined to fail. The Lord’s intends to accomplish the dream He gives through you. The dreams He gives to you are meant put you in a place of dependency on Him, His plan is never to throw it out in front of you and let you go about it on your own. So don’t steal what God gave you to steward. If you’re dealing with the disappointment of an unfulfilled dream, give it back to Him. Let Him redeem it and return it to you to steward, not steal. He hasn’t changed His mind or given up on you or the dream, it’s not in His nature. He simply wants you, and that dream to remain in His possession. Stay connected to the Dream Giver and those dream really will come true. – Love and Blessings, Pastor Jeff
