Do you ever wonder if God cares about the dreams you have in life? Amongst all the people that He has created, and the countless issues and challenges others face, at times you may feel that your dreams go unnoticed or that God has so much on His plate that you aren’t a top priority. But this is simply not true. God, in His loving omnipotence, cares for every one of His children. He is aware of your dreams and desires and is well able to bring them to pass.
Yes, God cares. He has great love for you because He is love. In fact, His love for you surpasses anything that you can imagine for yourself. Do not doubt that His care for you extends to His being concerned about the many aspirations that you have.
During your talks with God, express your desires to Him. It delights your Heavenly Father when you draw closer to Him through prayer and fellowship. Faith and trust are the foundation of seeing God’s goodness manifest. When you share your heart with Him, it shows that you trust Him.
Don’t worry about the presentation or the form of conversation that you have with God when you pray. Even if you can’t find the right words to express your feelings and the yearning you have to see your hopes and dreams come to pass, talk to Him openly and honestly. He is aware of every thought that passes through your mind, from your daydreams to the thoughts of frustration that come from wanting things to happen quickly.
Open your life up to God’s guidance so that you can receive His goodness. When you purpose in your heart to live a life that pleases Him, He is sure to reward you according to His will for your life. You must understand that you are not living life alone. God has a great plan for your life that is beyond what you would choose or dream for yourself. His plan also involves people you haven’t even encountered yet. He will bless you so you can be a blessing to others as well.
Don’t get discouraged and give up on your dreams; trust God. The Bible promises that those who believe and have faith in Him will experience prosperity in every area of life. And don’t for a minute believe that He doesn’t take into consideration the time, effort and passion you put into making your desires a reality. Second Corinthians 5:7 says, “For we walk by faith, not by sight….” Even if you do not see immediate results from your hard work, keep your focus on God and His Word.
Just like Joseph was years, months, days, hours, then minutes away from seeing victory in his life, the same is true for you. If he had quit or allowed obstacles to hinder him from moving forward, he would have never seen his breakthrough! By practicing patience and persistence in your meditation on the Word, you will see the intricate details of your life unfold.
Though you will experience challenges and obstacles as you go through life, I encourage you to persevere and receive what God has for you. Take your heart’s desires before Him and seek Him diligently. He will bring to pass His perfect will for your life.
Through the Word, you are equipped to conquer fear and self-doubt when it tries to stop you from achieving your dreams.
