Many people have started out with a God-given dream, and a passion to see that word from the Lord fulfilled in their lives burned in their hearts. But the longer it took for the dream to come to pass, the less their hearts burned for it. Finally, these people released God’s dream for their lives altogether, letting it slip out of their hearts and hands and into oblivion. Nothing is more tragic than this: that a person would let go of his dream — the very purpose for which he was born into this world.
You were born to be remarkable! No one else in the world is just like you. Your genetic makeup belongs only to you. Your fingerprints are unlike any others in the entire world. Your blood type, your chemistry, your eye color — all of these are so unique and so special that there isn’t any other human being on the face of the earth exactly like you. You are truly one of a kind!
In the same way, your dream — your God-given vision, your word from the Lord — is also unique. God has a special plan for you that is for you alone and no one else. In fact, you are so special and unique that God had His hand on your life even before the foundation of the world (Ephesians 1:4)!
The greatest tragedy you could ever experience would be to let go of your God-given dream and allow the fire in your heart to go out. To do that is the equivalent of letting go of your special individuality, your divine call, and your God-given gifting’s.

Perhaps you’re concerned about being odd or different. But so what if your dream is different than the dreams of other people you know? You must remember that God didn’t call you to be conformed to the image of the opinions of your family or friends.
How boring it is to be just like everyone else! You were called to be conformed to the image of Jesus Christ. One of the keys to achieving that goal is to find God’s plan for your life and then to follow it to your divine destiny — regardless of the cost.
