“Some Dreams Do Not Die” by Kirk Hunt
And he said, About this season, according to the time of life, thou shalt embrace a son. And she said, Nay, my lord, thou man of God, do not lie unto thine handmaid.
2 Kings 4:16 KJV
Her hands came off her hips and covered her mouth. Her dry, squinting eyes were suddenly wide and full of tears. Elisha’s prophecy released the hidden dream of her heart. The dream lurched from its dark cell into the bright sun of her life.
The tough, self-assured woman of verse 13 suddenly gave way to the tender, vulnerable girl of verse 16. Our dreams have power. Even our hidden dreams. Especially the dreams that should have died.
There you are, building the Kingdom. You have not asked, or expected, a reward for your faithfulness. God will select an unlikely place and space to fulfill your dreams.
God delights in bringing dreams to life. Probably the dreams you had forgotten. Especially the dreams you thought were long since dead.
Your season is coming. A season when you will hold something precious. A season you did not think possible.
Some dreams do not die. Some dreams linger, waiting for God’s power and the right season. Some dreams you did not ask for, but God gave you anyway.
Think: Nothing is impossible for God.
Pray: “Father-God, no dream is impossible with You.”
