What to do When the Dream Seems Dead

Have you ever felt like a dream has died? That there is no tangible way for the desired career, repaired relationship or changed circumstance to ever come to pass?

I have a longing in my heart that’s been there for many moons. I ask the Lord to align my will with His, to remove the desire for this good thing, but alas, it remains…

Today I read about 3 hopeless circumstances:

-a father whose daughter died

-a woman with a 12-year bleeding disorder

-2 men that were blind

These 3 vastly different circumstances held one common thread:

 ✨Belief in the resurrection power of Jesus Christ

They had no clue that this man would personally conquer his own death, but they believed He had the power to bring people back from the dead, to heal sickness & to give sight to the blind!

When Jesus arrives to the home of the little girl , there is a whole lotta funeral commotion happening.

Jesus yells, “Get out! The girl isn’t dead; she’s only asleep.”

Unlike the faith of the father who begged Jesus to come,  the people laugh at Him. Once they were outside, however, He takes her by the hand & she stands up!

Y’all I don’t know what you are facing today, but I exhort you to remember this:

We serve the ONLY God Who conquered death! There is no other religion that can make this historically documented claim!

These 3 people knew nothing of this! We KNOW He died & rose again on the 3rd day, so why so downcast oh my soul?

Whatever you face today, sickness that needs healing, sight restored, finances replenished, a relationship repaired, or maybe a dream that seems dead, call on The One Who walks in resurrection power to move on your behalf!

Believe like that father!

Believe like the sick woman!

Believe like the blind men!

Father, we come before You this morning & lift up the thing that looks dead to us. We believe in You & ask that You would help us command that lying Devil out of our thoughts to make room for You to proclaim, “This circumstance isn’t dead. It’s only asleep.” Awaken that dream, bring healing, orchestrate reconciliation, provide as Jehovah Jireh. You are the Source of ALL we will ever need so we call on Your name & believe in Your resurrection power, amen!
