Today’s sermon was just awesome. The title was “Boulevard of Broken Dreams: Some Dreams Can’t Come True”. With a title like that, it’s gotta be interesting, right? I usually don’t like to hear about dreams not coming true because I believe that God has GREAT and WONDERFUL plans for us. So, I was intrigued when the pastor began his message.
The Bible story he related was in 1 Samuel 21 & 22. David, the anointed and chosen future king was running from the present & un-anointed King Saul. David panics because he sees his own reign slipping through his fingers. Instead of turning to God and asking Him what to do, he makes some bad decisions including lying, stealing and dishonoring God. These decisions cause an avalanche of terrible and heinous acts.
What would have happened if David had “inquired of the Lord” instead of planning his own way back to God’s original plan of becoming King? Probably not a disaster.
Your dream may have been a marriage, a job, children or something secret in your heart of hearts. It may seem broken & unable to come true now. So, what’s your choice? Panic & try to figure it out on your own? Or lean into Jesus? Inquire of him and see how He’d like to lead you to his GREAT and WONDERFUL plan?
