Dreaming shapes your life. Dreaming shapes my life. Our willingness to dream—or even our unwillingness—is going to shape our lives. The way that we think is going to affect the way that we feel; and the way that we feel will ultimately impact the way that we act.
This is why the writer says in Proverbs 23:7, “For as he thinks within himself, so he is.” Dreams lead to thoughts, thoughts lead to actions, and actions lead to our legacy. What kind of dreams are you dreaming? You see, it doesn’t only matter that you dream, but that your dreams lead you toward the kind of life God wants for you. Simply dreaming isn’t enough; to truly live out your purpose, you need to dream God’s dreams for your life. This is why it’s so important to get into His Word and learn more about His truth!
We can also see this by looking at our society. All the people who did anything significant in history all did it on the backside of dreaming. Albert Einstein said this: “Imagination is more important than knowledge. Logic will get you from A to B; imagination will take you everywhere. There is no limit to imagination. The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge, but imagination.”
We see that the true sign of intelligence is not how much you know, but whether or not you’re willing to dream. Dreaming is the beginning of fulfilling your God-given purpose, and it’s also one of the things that makes life worth living!
Don’t give up your imagination. In a world that tells us not to dream, be courageous enough to keep dreaming. Shape your life by the dreams that you dream—and in everything, seek God’s will for your dreams.
