God's Dream



 

What’s your dream? What do you desire? What’s something that isn’t currently a reality but if it became a reality, it would make your heart smile?


I assume that whatever that thing is, if you are a believer, you have prayed about it. I imagine you have made an appeal to God. Because for a believer, a dream may only be a pending prayer away. If you profess to be in close relation to God, but you haven’t talked to Him about your deepest desire, are you really that close to Him?


So, if you haven’t already, tell God your dream. Let Him know what’s on your heart. If it’s according to His plan, it will come to pass. If not, though it may not initially make sense to you, God has greater plans than those you dream of.


But if I may, let me direct your attention to someone else’s dream—to God’s dream. Like us, when we desire something, we make an appeal for it. Per collinsdictionary.com an appeal is defined as: a serious or urgent request.


In Mark 7:32, it is written that a group of people brought a deaf man to Jesus in hopes of Him performing a miracle. The text says that these people begged Jesus to heal him, and He answered their request. But what I find utterly intriguing is what I discovered while doing a little biblical research. I had previously read 2 Corinthians 5:20 and it reads as follows:


“Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making an appeal through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.”


 

"As though God were making an appeal …"


Here’s the interesting fact. According to biblehub.com, Mark 7:32 is a cross-reference scripture for 2 Corinthians 5:20. These verses are similar because both texts use the word or phrase parakaleó, which means to call near, invite, or invoke.


So, the people begged Christ to heal the deaf man. They called Christ near. They made an urgent request. They appealed to Him. Christ answering the petition of the deaf man was, I am sure, nothing short of a dream come true. His appeal was answered. The deaf man’s dream came true…


Will God’s?


God’s dream, God’s urgent request, God’s appeal is found in 2 Corinthians 5:20. The text says, “we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.” God’s greatest desire is that we are restored to Him—that we turn from sin and remain in holiness.


Often, we are hopeful that God will make our dreams come true. But will we return the favor? God has informed us of what He desires. We know what He wants. Will we help Him in making his dream come true? Will you appeal to the lost on God’s behalf?


If you are willing but apprehensive, pray that God will take away any anxiety or fear that you may have. If you are willing but not sure how, ask God to show you how to use your gifts to accomplish His will. Imagine making God’s heart smile if you were to ask Him, “How can I help in making your desire, your dream come true?”


Pray about this. Seek God on how to make his request a reality. And although we shouldn’t answer God’s appeal to only have our appeal answered, we can’t beat God’s giving. If you answer God’s appeal, I am sure He will answer yours if it is in your best interest.


That’s all I have for you today. May God bless you and keep you. Until next time, take care.
