If we want our talents to multiply, we must have a dream!
Greetings and blessings to you all on this wonderful day given to us by God!Everyone of us who love God and is born of His Spirit is considered to be a child of God’s Kingdom. We all have talents that God has given to us. And God wants us to multiply our talents and to use them to expand His Kingdom.If we want our talents to multiply, we must have a dream. We all follow up our dream. It is built within us to pursue our dreams and do all we can to fulfill them. When we dream we awaken a desire within us that leads us to have the drive, passion and ambition to accomplish our dream. That is why people with dreams deploy everything within their reach to accomplish their dream. Godly ambition prompts a person to change.This is what Paul meant in his letter to the Philippians 3: 12-14
Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.There is this brother in our church who wanted to have a licence for driving any vehicle. This dream and desire made him to ask himself a a practical question,which is “what should I do to achieve this?” He understood that to get his driving licence he would have to go to driving school, practice and learn all the information he needed to pass his test. So he did,and he put in all efforts to achieve this dream. Now he has his driving licence and can drive any vehicle.If you have a dream, it will change you and force you to ask yourself a question: “What shall I change in my character or lifestyle to accomplish this dream?”Do you have a dream? Maybe you have a dream to have a big house, well-paid job, travel around the world and live comfortable life. Is this a bad dream? Not necessarily. I would never say that the desire to live a comfortable life is a bad thing. If you want to have the biggest house in Latvia, well that is fine, we will be glad and celebrate you, but the question is- what are your motives for that? If this house is used for the purpose of serving God-then go ahead and build one in Lithuania or any other country.Are you dreaming of something? A dream can discipline and motivate us. where there is a dream, there you also have hope, and even if you will lose everything, you will survive with a dream in your heart. But if a persons dream dies, then his hope and life person dies with it.One of my favourite characters in Bible is Joseph. He was like Jesus. You would not find anything bad said about Joseph. For example, you can read that Abraham lied but there is nothing negative about Joseph. Joseph loved the truth and revealed others who were fraudulent; that’s why some people did not like him.There were hardships in Joseph’s life but his dream stayed with him all the time, he remained faithful and of good character. God blessed him and he was elevated in life.We must dream! Through our dreams we can expand our talents.Never stop dreaming! Dream, but do not stay on the level of ‘just dreaming’. Let your dream move you to make the necessary changes and adjustments you need to achieve great goals to the glory of God.May God bless you abundantly.Pastor Rufus
