WORD FOCUS: PURSUE YOUR DREAM
TEXT: Joshua 1:9 “Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest….”
When it came to the time for Joshua to take the place of Moses, God said to him, ‘Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.’ And today God is saying the same to you. He wants you to pursue the dream He has put in your heart! When you encounter obstacles, you discover things about yourself you never knew. You discover the depth of your faith in God – and in yourself. Every problem introduces you to yourself. Obstacles are merely a call to strengthen your position, not surrender your dream. When you look back on your life, you’ll regret the things you didn’t do more than the ones you did.
So, when your dream looks impossible, trust God and act as though it’s impossible to fail. Why? Because ‘with God all things are possible’ (Mark 10:27). That means if you’re going to climb Mount Everest, make sure to bring the flag with you. Don’t listen to those who tell you, ‘It can’t be done that way.’ Or to those who say, ‘You’re taking too big a chance.’ Ignore what people say can’t be done and focus on what God says can be done. When Joseph dreamed big dreams, how did his brothers respond? ‘Let us…kill him.’ Sometimes those closest to you will resent your dream the most, yet with God’s help you can still fulfill it.
