FULFILLED DREAMS

Joshua 21:45

Not one word of all the good promises that the Lord had made to the house of Israel had failed; all came to pass. ESV

Joseph’s dreams of greatness were from God so the fulfillment was entirely up to God. We read from Scriptures how God eventually brought to pass His dreams for Joseph.

Many times, children of God cannot separate their own heart desires from that of God's purposes for them. Salvation begins the alignment between our own desires and that of God for us. We come to accept God's love and purpose for us. If the purpose therefore is of God, the burden of fulfillment is on God not you.

Frustration sets into many believers' lives when they think the purposes of God for their lives depend so much on their own plans and efforts. No doubt every goal requires planning; and God's goal in your life will require God's planning to fulfill. It was part of that plan that you were born in the first place. How much did you contribute to your birth? That's how much God expects from you to bring to pass His purposes in your life. The just shall live by faith.

It is easy to misconstrue the truth set in the previous paragraphs as a call to be lazy. Nothing in the purpose of God glorifies laziness. Take the example of Joseph once again. As God was executing His own plans in Joseph's life; Joseph was busy. He was diligent in the house of Potiphar as well as in the prison. So when God's ultimate dream for him as Prime Minister was fulfilled, Joseph's diligence was a life style.

Go into today, relieved of the burden of fulfilling God's purpose in your life. Work hard in that which your hands find to do as you rest in the assurance of God's fulfillment of His ultimate dream for you.

Prayer: Lord Jesus, help me to trust you and not step out of Your will for me. Make my heart steadfast, set on pilgrimage. Amen.
