The other day, I saw a phrase online that said, “Dream, but don’t sleep”. Well, how profound is that, I thought. I don’t know where the phrase originated from, but it’s definitely good advice. For me, it resonates deeper than any advice column on maneuvering the corporate world. I’m thinking of spiritual matters. “For the things which are seen are temporary…”
If you asked me how to apply this simple phrase to your life, I would tell you to stay vigilant. I would tell you to stay close to God and never let go of His promises. Dream yes, but don’t sleep on the tactics of the enemy to bring discouragement into your life. Stay full of the Word so when the enemy comes (and he will, trust me), you will have a ready answer for his lies. Dream, but don’t forget the greatest dream giver of all – Jesus Christ. Seek council in His Word. Dream and dream bigger, but trust the Word of God as the final authority over all your circumstances. Don’t sleep on the promises of God.
Meditate on this: “For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a for more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.” — 2 Corinthians 4:17-18
