Trust Him with Your Dreams - Joel Osteen Ministries daily devotional 01 August Monday
tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat is planted in the soil and
dies, it remains alone. But its death will produce many new kernels—a
plentiful harvest of new lives.” (John 12:24, NLT)
Trust Him with Your Dreams
good to be passionate about your dreams, but did you know a dream can
actually become an idol? If it’s all you think about, and you’re not
going to be happy unless it happens your way, that’s out of balance. The
fact is, sometimes you have to release that dream back to the Father.
we can get frustrated because we are trying to force things to happen
on our timetable. Sometimes we hold on to things so tightly, but when we
are finally willing to let them go, that’s when God can bring them to
pass. If you’ll choose to release that frustration and not let it become
the center of your attention, but instead, thank God that He’s
directing your steps, that will open the door for God to give you the
desires of your heart.
have to remember, God already knows what we want and what we need. He’s
the One who put those desires in us. We shouldn’t be consumed with
trying to make things happen. Instead, a greater act of faith is to be
happy right where you are; to stay open and trust God because He has
good plans in store for your future!
A Prayer for Today
today I release my dreams, my desires and my ‘wants’ like a seed
falling to the ground. I know that You have a good plan for my future,
and I trust You to bring it to pass in my life in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
