Before the foundations of time God the Father had a dream. His dream was for a family to be in fellowship and relationship with Him on a planet called Earth. And so according to the book of Genesis, through His spoken word He manifested His dream. After creating the Garden of Eden He breathed life and man was made. When man fell from grace, God didn’t give up on His dream. He immediately initiated a plan to restore His original desire and sent His very own son Jesus, to be the fulfillment and the antidote of that dormant dream. Jesus’ death and resurrection on the cross repurchased His father’s dream and mankind was once again able to be reconciled back to God. Now Jesus Himself, who was given all power and authority, continues in His father’s dream, that we would establish His kingdom on the Earth as the family of God.
Jesus plants a unique desire and dream in our hearts with the sovereign enabling that as we fulfill our dreams, He fulfills His dream. All of us as young people and adults have dreams which were birthed by God in our spirit. Life, oppression and our own mind and thoughts battle against those desires until many of us give up and settle for a life that is not what we originally believed for in our hearts. Our dreams were dampened by the floods of deferred hope and lost passion. Like Nehemiah we were once building our dream. We had a weapon in one hand and a tool in the other. The attacks have been so persistent that we lay down our building tool and grab the weapon to defend ourselves. In that battle we stop building, we begin to get weary, lose our hope and eventually the flame that once burned intensely is now dampened to a dim flicker.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jer 29:11 NIV. We believe that Jesus can rekindle the flames of hope and passion and the deep desires planted in your heart. We believe God’s word cannot fail and He will restore your broken dreams. Yes, your dead dreams can live! Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ. Phil 1:6 KJV.
Let us partner together to see His dream and your dream come to fruition as we, His people, establish His kingdom on the earth. Let’s Redeem the Dream!
