    One of the criminals who was hanged insulted him, saying, 'If you are the Christ, save yourself and us!'

    Our heart has not turned back, neither have our steps strayed from your path Psalms 44:18 WEBWhen you begin to dig too deep into the 'Thou shall' and 'Thou shall nots' of the Bible and begin to compare it to your own life, it will soon overwhelm you, and you may spiral into an attitude of defeat.

Dream Killers

  • Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told it to his brothers, and they hated him all the more. He said to them, 'Please hear this dream which I have dreamed: for, behold, we were binding sheaves in the field, and behold, my sheaf arose and also stood upright; and behold, your sheaves came around, and bowed down to my sheaf.' His brothers said to him, 'Will you indeed reign over us? Or will you indeed have dominion over us?' They hated him all the more for his dreams and for his words. Genesis 37:5 WEB

    God spoke to Joseph in a dream and showed him his destiny, but when Joseph told his brothers about it, they became jealous and angry. Later, when they had him in an isolated place, they plotted to kill him, but compromised instead and sold him into slavery to some traveling merchants. This only pushed him closer to his destiny.

    If God has given you a dream, believe in it. It will come to pass in the proper time, but be careful who you share your dream with. Do not throw your pearls before swine (Matthew 7:6). Work towards your dream and do your part, but be wary of the dream killers for they do not see the potential inside of you that God sees.

    Most of the time the people that you grew up with will never see you as anything different, for they will not look any deeper than the surface. God looks on the heart, and He often chooses the small and weak to do the big and powerful. Even Jesus was considered to be just a carpenter in His hometown. His dreams, were not their dreams for Him.

    'Isn't this the carpenter, the son of Mary, and brother of James, Joses, Judas, and Simon? Aren't his sisters here with us?' They were offended at him (Mark 6:3).

    Hang onto God today, believe that He has a plan for You like He promised. Involve Him in you life and your decision making. Don't be disappointed when others do not see God's plan for your life. He is the One that will bring it to pass, not them.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I thank You for the plan that You have for me. I choose to believe in You today willingly. Fulfill Your plan for my life and guide me into all that You have for me. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

I neded this, and it follows what I read in the Bible last night when I was praying.  Dealing with depression despite the meds I take and just feeling burned out.  The path I thought God wanted me to follow has all doors closed and I no longer know which direction to go .

Thank you all so much for your prayers! <3 ((hugs))  

A path came to mind later yesterday, and I started looking into it.  Praying this time it is the right one, and the Lord opens the doors for me.  My depression lifted after that and I feel so much better.  I can feel hopeful again, not just telling myself there is hope.  :)  

 

Thank you all again and may God bless you all! <3
