The Lord says—who makes a way in the sea and a path in the mighty waters, Don’t remember the prior things; don’t ponder ancient history. Look! I’m doing a new thing; now it sprouts up; don’t you recognize it? I’m making a way in the desert, paths in the wilderness.
What goals or dreams do you have for the New Year? Is it possible to see these dreams achieved? We often become discouraged because we don’t reach our goals or we make resolutions and become ashamed because we don’t keep them. January finds us in the gym, and perhaps by the end of February we’ve tapered off or the desire is no longer new and fresh. Our goal to write a book or show off our art or accomplish a career goal seem stymied by circumstances.
Let me just tell you. It is possible to reach your goals. It is possible to have your dreams unfold this year. God-given dreams are God-driven dreams. He is the God of the impossible.
So don’t be afraid to dream big dreams, to ask God for the impossible and what you may feel are insurmountable goals.
Dear Lord, I want to follow you in all I do and accomplish the dreams you have for me.
