Fresh Air

In his book Rescuing Ambition, Dave Harvey writes about having a condition that kept him from sleeping well. His doctor told him that his apnea could be resolved with surgery. The procedure was effective, and now he can breathe more easily, which allows him to sleep well.

Harvey says that now that he is sleeping better, he can recall his dreams. Before, he never slept well enough to remember his dreams. He says that it is a boring way to spend a night.

I suppose that it is possible for Christians to lose their dreams. You can get to the point where you can’t remember the last time you had a big God-given idea for his kingdom. What a boring way to spend your life!

The remedy for a dreamless Christian might be to allow the Holy Spirit to blow through your life in a fresh, new way. We are commanded to “…be filled with the Spirit.” (Eph.5:18). Let us always seek God’s presence in our lives and allow his Holy Spirit to fill us with wisdom, power and dreams for the future.
