Well, you can know what God’s dream for you is. And you can dream it with Him. And He wants to fulfill it WITH you. So how do you discover God’s dream for your life? What is the unique purpose that He has designed you to fulfill?

One thing to know is that the actual process of discovering God’s dream for you is part of the adventure, part of your relationship journey, part of His dream for you. He hides things for you to discover along the way. Life is more like a family treasure hunt than an individual hundred meter race.

So here are where some of the clues for God’s dream for you can be found:

1. His word

2. The de-sires of your heart

3. Personal encounter with Him, hearing His voice

4. Night dreams, prophetic words, visions…

5. The voice of fathers and mothers in your life

Let’s start with His word – it is living and active and He can breathe life on any passage so that it speaks directly to you in a moment.

Jesus knew who He was and what God’s dream for His life was, directly from scripture (and He only had the equivalent of our Old Testament). In Luke 24:27 Jesus was walking with two disciples and beginning at Moses and all the Prophets, He expounded to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself.

When John the baptist was questioned about who he was and what his purpose was he quoted the writing of the prophet Isaiah saying “I [am] ‘The voice of one crying in the wilderness: “Make straight the way of the LORD” (John 1:23).

I have a number of specific scriptures that have defined my purpose and have marked my journey or history with Him – as Ive been daily reading scripture, as Ive searched out a word during times of difficulty, as Ive woken in the morning with a particular phrase or reference in mind.

At one time I was asking God to tell me His purpose for me. For a couple weeks we were going after this corporately as a church – for each of us to hear God for ourselves about what He has called us to be and do. One morning as I sat listening for Him, a thought popped in my head ‘Titus 1:5‘. Ive learned that those thoughts are His voice speaking to me, so I checked it out. It reads “For this reason I have left you in [region], that you should set in order the things that are lacking…” I suddenly realized that is exactly what I do – in business consultancy, in local church discipleship, in international mission work, I have a gift to help people clarify what it is they are wanting to build (individually or organizationally) and resource them with the missing parts to build it. That is who I am and what I do, and it was written of me before I was even born!

So what if you asked God to show you His dream for you in His word? Ask Him to reveal that to you this week. Then set aside extra time to read, soak, worship and listen to His voice. What impossible things has He given for you to do in the earth?
