Godly Dreaming

He fulfills the desires of those who hear him; he hears their cry and saves them. Psalm 145:19

From PROMISES TO KEEP, A daily devotional:

The secret of accomplishment lies in goals that are big enough. Let yourself go! Allow your imagination to run wild. Courageously dream great dreams. Think creatively into the distant future. What do you really want to do and become in the Lord? Do you believe He is able to achieve it?

Christians are often reluctant to dream. They misunderstand the paradox that while God is sovereign, He has yet given men freedom to develop gifts and talents and to use them creatively - God often expects us to take a large share of the initiative in getting things done. There is no desire God has placed into a human heart for which He has not also provided the means to accomplish it.
