Anxiety and fear is the number one killer of dreams within life today. It kills dreams and visions faster each day than people come up with them. As soon as someone comes up with a dream or vision they are quick to dismiss it once they begin to lay out the plans and see hurdles and obstacles lying up ahead. The more we look at these hurdles and obstacles the more they turn into mountains of impossibilities that are quick to overshadow our hope and dreams and fill us full of anxiety.
I do have hope for you today if you are one of the many that suffer from the anxious dream killing disease and that hope is Jesus Christ. Jesus said we can move mountains with faith the size of a mustard seed and that my friend is not much bigger than a grain of sand! When we put our faith in Jesus Christ and let go of the fears, worries and anxieties that we accumulate we then have the power of the Almighty on our side that moves the “mountains” out of our way.
“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” (Matthew 6:33-34 NKJV)
This does not mean there will not be tough times, but it does mean that the tough times will not overcome us and instead we will overcome them by the power and blood of Jesus Christ. We can stand strong as we face the bumps ahead and push forward. The more we push, the stronger we will get as the power of God works in us to transform us through the experiences.
Once we make it to the dream we can then look back at the “mountains” we faced and see the true character of them, and more than often we find that they were only bumps along the way and nothing more. They were bumps that were set in place, not to harm us, but to transform us and propel us forward towards the dream that God has put within our hearts and minds.
What dream has God put in your heart today? Do not let anxiety overcome you, but allow God to use you and work through you as you strive towards the dream and calling He has set upon your life.
