Ron McClung is a former pastor of 33 years and is the District Superintendent of the Iowa-Minnesota District of The Wesleyan Church. He wrote these words: “God sees the dream in our hearts. People all around us have dreams of being better than they are, of doing better and climbing higher. Yet, sometimes we don’t recognize the dreams because we don’t see them clearly as God does. Jesus probably surprised His disciples when He told them, “You are the salt of the earth . . . you are the light of the world” (Matthew 5:13, 14). Yet that is exactly what they became. He saw them as individuals who were competitive and petty at times. But He also saw the dreams in their hearts. Later, in the power of the Holy Spirit, they rose to greater heights than they or we would have predicted, based on their earlier behavior. You have a dream in your heart too. God sees it and in His power you can fulfill it.”
