What happened to our dreams? You know; before the world and sin led us astray. I think the dream is still there, just being pushed down and silenced by the ways of the world. So pushed down and silenced that we think the dream is dead.
Don’t let your dreams die. Don’t let the devil carry you so far from the cross that you give up on the dreams God has given you. The dream God has given you are still there. It is still very alive; you just have to pursue it! You don’t have to live in defeat in your christian journey. Flee from sin and cling to the cross! Flee from it all until your free from it all!
The devil just wants to hold you hostage and in chains which keeps you from pursuing what God has instilled in your soul. Your alive still for a reason; which means God still has a use for you. God is the author of life and death am I right? So if he is keeping you alive that means he still has a purpose for you; a dream for you to fulfil. Cry out to Jesus! The chain breaker; if God has called you to it then he will bring you through it ONLY if you let him. God has given us a freewill; and a choice. We can either serve him or not. Don’t sell yourself short. If God has called you to it he will make a way! God wouldn’t tell you “son; daughter I’m calling you to do this great task” and not give you the ability to do it! Keep the faith! Can I get an amen?

If anyone needs help and prayer message me; I’ll answer you; your not alone.
2 Timothy 2:21
Therefore, if anyone cleanses himself from what is dishonorable, he will be a vessel for honorable use, set apart as holy, useful to the master of the house, ready for every good work.
Are you a broken vessel? useful to the master and ready for every good work and set apart as holy? If most of us answer that honestly we would say no. Can you imagine looking at yourself in the mirror and being able to confidentially say “I am holy and useful, ready for every good work.?” That is not something easy to say about yourself “holy”. The truth is God calls us to be holy; he calls us to such high standards. If your a broken vessel; if you can not say you are ready for every good work that God has planned for you then I challenge you to take it into prayer with God right now. “Therefore, if anyone cleanses himself from what is dishonorable…” God is calling us to cleanse ourselves from sin BUT we can not do it without Jesus because he is the only one who can cleanse our slate and make us clean.
If we want to be a light onto this world to perform good deeds for Jesus then we need to cleanse ourselves through Jesus Christ so we can be set apart as holy and useful. God will give us his light to take into this dark dark world and everyone will see the light that God has given us; if we are in right standing with him. We need to be in right standing with God if we want to be effective in anything we do and if you are not; then pray and talk to God…yes, he is that approachable.
No one after lighting a lamp covers it with a jar or puts it under a bed, but puts it on a stand, so that those who enter may see the light.
