Carrying the Dreams of God
Author: Muriel Halverson

Within the womb of our spirit, each of us carries dreams; not ordinary dreams, but “God-breathed” dreams – dream seeds planted in our inward parts by the direct operation of the Holy Spirit.  Many of these dreams were implanted within our spiritual womb at conception; others are deposited as we journey through life.  Once implanted, these precious dream seeds become part of our divine DNA.

Our dream seeds carry an incredible destiny – a destiny greater than our natural ability to fulfill - a destiny so great and important that it will require God Himself to bring the reality of His dreams for us to pass.  It will require heaven’s supply and resources to fulfill God’s dreams for our lives. This is how God operates.  Always!

Consider Abraham:  God’s dream was to have a nation in the earth through whom He could send a Redeemer to liberate fallen man.  So how did God choose to bring His dream to pass?  Not the avenue that you and I probably would have chosen.  God’s way was to choose a man and woman (Abraham and Sarah) who were childless.  First, God separated this couple from their homeland and took them on a journey to their place of destiny.  Once they arrived in the land of Canaan, God began speaking astounding words (dream seeds) to Abraham about inheriting the land of Canaan, and becoming the father of many nations.

God instructed Abraham to count the stars, telling him that his seed would be as innumerable as the stars of the heavens. What a promise!   After God implanted His dream seeds into Abraham, He seemingly complicated matters by waiting an additional twenty-five years to fulfill His dream. God lingered long enough for “the utter impotence of Abraham’s body, which was as good as dead” (Romans 4:19), and for Sarah to become past the age of conceiving (Hebrews 11:11).  In the natural, this was an impossible situation.  However, with God, all things are possible!  God, Himself would be their Enabler.

God kept talking to Abraham about His dream.  At some point in Abraham’s walk with God, God’s dream seeds grew so big in Abraham’s heart that he believed God (vital) and thus became the Father of many nations (Romans 4:16).

Mary:  Carrier of the Dream of God

Mary, the mother of Jesus, is another example of God choosing to do the impossible through a human vessel.  Mary literally carried the dream of God in her physical womb.

She became the one of whom the prophet Isaiah spoke, “Therefore the Lord Himself shall give you a sign, Behold, the young woman who is unmarried and a virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel – God with us” (Isaiah 7:14).

When the angel, Gabriel, appeared to Mary with the stunning announcement that she, a virgin, had been chosen to carry the Son of the Most High, she asked, “How can this be, since I have no [intimacy with any man as a] husband?” (Luke 1:34).  Never before in history had a virgin given birth.  Mary was about to have an unprecedented biblical experience.  Gabriel informed Mary that “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you (as a shining cloud); and so the holy (pure, sinless) Thing which shall be born of you, will be called the Son of God” ((Luke 1:35).   Her immediate response was surrender, for she said, “Behold I am the handmaiden of the Lord; let it be done to me according to what you have said” (Luke 1:38). 

Notice:  Although God would be the One enabling Mary to conceive, He needed a human vessel to partner with Him for the performance of His dream.  It is no different today.  God’s word is filled with His dreams for the closing days of time.  Our Lord cannot accomplish His dreams (plans and purposes) without His Bride surrendering to her Beloved God with total abandonment and unconditional trust and faith in Him.

 

Dream Seeds for the Bride of Christ

What an amazing, exciting time to be alive! Our best days lie before us. We are about to arise in glorious splendor, participating in the greatest move of God this world has ever experienced.  A divine invasion of the glory of God is about to inundate our planet. 

Almighty God is getting ready to display His glory in astounding and awesome demonstrations.  He is going to come down in such a way that every man, woman, and child will see His glory.  Although God Himself will release mighty signs and wonders in the earth, we as His people must not lose sight of the fact that at the end of the age, God has chosen to reveal His glory in and through the Church (His Bride).  It is written, “Jesus is coming to be glorified in His saints and on that day, His glory will be reflected in all who believe” (2 Thessalonians 1:10).   Jesus Himself will partner with His Bride, and together they will bring forth great manifestations of power and glory.   

Currently, the world mocks the Church (the Bride of Christ).  They see us as powerless and irrelevant.  I declare to you that an age changing transition is about to transpire.  The Church/Bride is about to fulfill God’s dream for her as spoken through the Apostle Paul in Ephesians 3:19:

…that you may be filled (through all your being) unto all the fullness of God – [that is] may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself!

 

Bride of Christ, this is our destiny. We are rapidly approaching the time when the world will be asking, “Who is this glorious creature who has arisen, wielding so much dominion and authority that even the devils tremble in her presence?”  Who is she?  I will tell you:  She is the Bride of Christ (you and me) who has become a body filled with the Holy Ghost and fire.
