Summary: God has never forgotten about the dreams you have locked away in your heart. You may have all but given up hope of them ever coming true in your life, but God hasn’t!
Go ahead and Dream The Impossible Dream
What Do You Want to be,
When You Grow Up?
That’s a question that has been asked down through the years, to many a child,
And the answers, sometimes are surprising aren’t they?
only limited by the child’s imagination.
I’m sure, we can all remember some of dreams we had and the things we wanted to do and what we wanted to be, when we were growing up,
Firemen, Pilots, Miss America, a NFL or NBA Superstar, the President.
Some of the things we were able to accomplish, some became clear along the way that they would take a lot more work, then what we were willing to give
And some of the dreams have been locked away down deep in our hearts and have all but been forgotten for a long time,
But I want you to know something this morning, God has never forgotten about the dreams you have locked away in your heart.
You may have all but given up hope of them ever coming true in your life, but God hasn’t!
Have you ever really sought the Lord Will, as to what His Dreams and Aspirations are for your life?
Sometimes we get so stuck with doing our own thing, that we don’t realize just how much we really are limiting ourselves!
We think, if only I could just afford that car, or if only I could just live in that house, or if just one time, I could take a real vacation!
So when those things don’t happen the way we want them too,
we usually end up settling for much less than what we were really hoping for,
Our mindset, switches from “if only I could”, to the “at least its better than nothing”
God is not that way with us, He never has been, never will be, He is not a God of mediocrity,
If you know Jesus as your Lord and Savior, then you are what is referred to as a “King’s Kid.”
Would you expect a “King’s Kid” to have anything less then the Best?
Of course not, neither does God, He only Wants the Very Best for His Children.
Jerm. 17:7-8 NKJ
7. “ Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD,
And whose hope is the LORD.
8. For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters,
Which spreads out its roots by the river,
And will not fear when heat comes;
But its leaf will be green,
And will not be anxious in the year of drought,
Nor will cease from yielding fruit.
You won’t find that in the world, the only source you will find for true hope, is in God!
And the hope that God gives, is not like the world gives, you know like we say, I hope it doesn’t rain tomorrow,
The hope that God gives, you can be sure of, it means;
1) to trust, or to trust in
2) to have confidence, to be confident
3) to be bold
4) to be secure
Did you know that you can find yourself in the thoughts of God?
This very day and everyday, God is thinking about you!
Its like the song, your are always on my mind,
You are always on God’s mind, you never leave His thoughts,
You may not think of Him all the time, but you are never out of His thoughts.
Jerm. 29:11-12 NKJ
11. For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD,
(that means that they are continual happening)
thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
12. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.
God has big hopes and dreams for you, how many of you know that God, is an extravagant God?
I mean after all, He uses what the entire world’s wealth is measured by for asphalt in Heaven!
He never does anything on a small scale!
Scientist are still discovering new forms of life on earth after all these years,
The only thing bigger than His hopes and dreams for you, is His endless, immense love for you!
That’s what makes everything possible for us, that’s the only thing that makes everything possible for us.
Some people have a hard time, truly accepting just how much it is, that God loves them,
Especially when you tell them, that He loves them extravagantly.
They feel that they unqualified and are unworthy to be loved by God that way,
It’s a lie and trick of the accuser, nothing could be farther from the truth,
If you know Jesus as your Lord and Savior, you have been qualified to receive God’s extravagant Love towards you! (repeat)
