Farming is hard work

Dreams Take Work

Read ç®´ Proverbs 27:11 through 29:27

He who works his land will have abundant food, but the one who chases fantasies will have his fill of poverty (Proverbs 28:19).

In the agricultural society of King Solomon’s day, successful farming was strenuous work. Workdays began early and ran late. Famine was a constant challenge that forced these people to work their fields diligently to make sure their families would be able to survive. Such a demanding life left little room for the farmer to become a careless dreamer.
Having godly dreams—and just being a “dreamer”—are vastly different attitudes in the kingdom of God. God wants His people to dream big dreams for Him and have a vision of what He wants them to accomplish. Dreamers, however, move from one fantasy to another, rarely giving any thought to take care of the responsibilities God gives them.
When God gives people dreams, He does not want them simply to remain dreams. He will give His people daily responsibilities needed to turn these dreams into realities.


Ask God to give you big dreams and help you turn them into realities.
