“It is pleasant to see dreams come true, but fools refuse to turn from evil to attain them.” (Proverbs 13:19, NLT).
Dreams are those beautiful pictures of greatness yet to be achieved. They are what guarantees a better life when pursued. Along the path of fulfilling dreams are principles one must follow. It has been configured in every God-given dream that he that seeks to achieve it must walk on the path of righteousness and godly character.
Wise men know this. The principles of attaining God’s visions/dreams working in you is to do His will. Applying a foreign (evil) principle to achieve your dreams is like building a house on a wrong foundation. Even if you finish building, one day it will collapse. It has no guarantee of immortality.
When you try to achieve success by bribery, corruption, lying, manipulation, etc, you lose God’s blessing upon it. Yes, you might get what you want but inherent in what you have achieved is the tendency for it to disappear. Proverbs 13:11 (NLT) says, “Wealth from get-rich-quick schemes quickly disappears; wealth from hard work grows over time.”
We fall into the temptation of trying to help ourselves through wrong means because of: 1. Lack of patience. 2. Lack of contentment with where we are now. 3. Comparing ourselves with other people. 4. Laziness to work hard. The truth is you cannot establish with evil a dream you got by righteousness. Live by God’s rule in the pursuit and fulfilment of your dreams. Great day my friend. #BeInspired.
