Summary: Greatness comes for those who have humbled themselves before GOD!!
13 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,
16 your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. 17 How precious to me are your thoughts, O God!
[16 You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.]
1 Peter 2:9 (New International Version)

Inspirational dreams of the famous have no doubt been responsible for shaping and molding our history, touching our hearts and minds. How different the world might be if the dreamers had not acted upon the messages given to them in their dreams.
One would ask whether these individuals were special or gifted to begin with. Perhaps they were given an extra portion of ingenuity or spiritual inspiration.
Perhaps the dream state provided them with direct access to vast reservoirs of creativity. But then maybe they were not just exceptional dreamers.
Perhaps they became special because of what they did with their dreams. Acknowledge these great minds from the past as sources of incredible power and thought but also realize that the greatest of creations have yet to be dreamed of or realized in our world today
They set out to accomplish their dream when the timing or the situation was right!
I believe the God has a plan for every one of us! NOT ONE PERSON IS LEFT OUT OF GOD’S PURPOSES!!! His purpose for the human race was an exclusive one but an inclusive!
Don’t be counted out as one of those people!!! You too can become a part of the great big plan of God!!!
What does it take to be one?!!

You were wonderfully created by God!!
Psalm 139: 15
God gave you abilities and talents nobody else has, you have gifts that were tailor made to work for you and for others!!!
There is no one else like you on this planet!!! God created only one you!!!
You were created in secret! Devil didn’t even see you coming!!!
You are part of God’s big divine picture!
Psalms 139: Verse 17! How precious are thoughts of me!!
You can’t be a part of God’s purpose if you have not made a decision to follow God and serve him!
