When did you stop dreaming? Who took your hope? What happened to your desire? Where is your passion? Why have you allowed yourself to become a victim of your circumstances?
The people of YHVH ARE dreamers…the people of YHVH MUST have vision.
18 Where there is no vision, the people are let loose, But blessed is he who guards the Torah.
Many people are stuck where they are because they have given up. Many have accepted their situation and have quit reaching and striving for something better. They have convinced themselves that they must accept where they are as their position in life and some have convinced themselves that where they are is YHVH’s will for them.
Why have you stopped dreaming? The calling that YHVH puts on His people is ALL about growing, reaching and striving ALWAYS to become something better. His people are to be transformed! How can you be transformed and changed when you have no vision and no dreams? Did you think you would just wait around for YHVH to do it all for you?
Our Messiah told a story about that…there was a man who took what he was given and buried it. He was AFRAID to dream! He had NO vision! He accepted where he was at in life and did NOT even try or make an attempt to better himself! That man was found to be unworthy and what he had been given was taken from him and…he was cast OUT.
Have you buried Abba’s gift to you? Are you afraid to even take it out and look at it? Why are YOU holding back? Why are YOU afraid? Why have YOU stopped dreaming?
Have YOU considered that you may be where you are at because you have NOT done anything with what YHVH has GIVEN to YOU?
Joshua and Caleb spied out the land that YHVH was giving to Israel and they came back with hope…they came back with dreams…they came back with vision! They saw the beautiful gift that YHVH was giving to them and they wanted to go in and possess it right then! They were excited! They were ready to grow and to move forward! They looked BEYOND the obstacles!
What about the rest of Israel? They believed the stories of those who had no vision…they listened to those who had quit dreaming and who had no hope. The defeatist attitudes of a few men infected an entire nation of people. They gave up right there…they let someone steal their dreams and their vision. They decided to accept their circumstances and they refused to go forward and possess what was already theirs to have. They wept and they wanted to go backwards…back from where they had come! They buried what they had been given, so YHVH buried their entire generation in the wilderness that they had chosen to accept as their situation in life.
They settle for SO much less than what YHVH had planned for them!
The land that YHVH lay before them IS a picture of His Kingdom…He lays that same opportunity before His people now. Do you have the dream and the vision of moving forward and taking what He has given you to possess, or are you going to stay right where you are, bury what He has given you and bury yourself in this world, and the circumstances you find yourself in.
1 Then all the congregation lifted up their voices and cried, and the people wept that night. 2 And all the children of Yisra’ĕl grumbled against Mosheh and against Aharon, and all the congregation said to them, “If only we had died in the land of Mitsrayim! Or if only we had died in this wilderness! 3 “And why is יהוה bringing us to this land to fall by the sword, that our wives and children should become a prey? Would it not be better for us to turn back to Mitsrayim?” 4 And they said to each other, “Let us appoint a leader, and let us turn back to Mitsrayim.”
Always, seek the truth…rethink, relearn, return.
