Praying Through to Your Dreams and Goals

We've talked about how to create a vision board and, as it says in Habukkuk 2:2, keep the vision in front of you. But it is so much more than just keeping that dream and goal where you can see it every day. It takes faith to see that dream become a reality, and it takes fervent, effectual prayers, too.

When we pray for our dreams and goals, we have to first understand why we have those dreams within us. If you look back on your life, you will begin to see patterns. You might realize that you've always been writing because you enjoy it or you understand how mechanical things work and build things even since you were a child or that you have been playing a musical instrument of some kind for as long as you can remember. Those are talents God gave you and there are dreams that go with those talents, too.

When you pray through your dreams to see them come to fruition, you are operating your faith in conjunction with God's will for your life. His favor can increase you in your dreams and goals more than you could ever hope, think, or imagine! He wants you to succeed and achieve those things He put inside you. You were created for a purpose!

Today, if you're wondering what that purpose is, pray and ask the Father to reveal it to you. If you're lacking dreams and goals and vision, ask Him to give you new dreams. If you don't know what direction to go or where to start, pray and ask Him to reveal that to you. After all, He is the revealer of secret things (Daniel 2:47, NKJV).
