What’s wrong with dreaming those blue eyes? Is there a law forbidding me not to dream?
What’s wrong with dreaming a hospital for Cancer Patients? I had been a cancer patient myself and I know how all the chemotherapy and radiation can destroy ones body?
What’s wrong with dreaming comfort? A house and a car? Almost 2 decades my parents struggled working under the scorching heat of the sun, farming the land that was not ours. I walked some 7 kilometers everyday back and forth for 10 years in order to go to school. Am I not allowed to dream on that while I am still on earth?
What’s wrong with dreaming a school for the out of school youth? I have seen so many young adults in our neighborhood that wanted to go to school but cannot because of their parents’ meager income.
I know too well that our intellect and other gifts have been given to be used for God’s greater glory but I also do know that God is taking pleasure in our prosperity and truly enjoying meeting our needs.I know He desires to bless His people His abundance so that I/WE can be a blessing to others and confirm His covenant with ME/US.
I am not going to use the Word of God as an excuse, but this is based on the truth that I know. I believed that we are already redeemed by God with all the curses of the law in Deuteronomy 28. These are spiritual death, sickness and poverty.
Deut 28:1-4 (you can open your Bible and read the entirety)
If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully follow all his commands I give you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations on earth. All these blessings will come on you and accompany you if you obey the Lord your God:
You will be blessed in the city and blessed in the country.
The fruit of your womb will be blessed, and the crops of your land and the young of your livestock—the calves of your herds and the lambs of your flocks.
I don’t think any good charitable works one shall do on earth will gain you access to heaven. I am not trying to perform infront of God’s eyes but I just want to claim and believe His promises to be TRUE. Is it wrong to believe His promises? What shall we do on earth? Slack off? and wait for the apple to fall on our mouths just like Juan Tamad (Filipino for “Lazy John”)? Is that the picture of living by Faith?
For me, dreaming for prosperity isn’t that bad, but making our intellect and giftings our very god for us is a sad news. We should not think highly of ourselves than we ought, but remember that everything good in us and all the blessings are gifts from God.
