Today’s Scripture

“A man’s mind plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps and makes them sure.”
(Proverbs 16:9, AMPC)

God-given Dreams

Oftentimes, children have dreams for the future—dreams of being ball players, actresses, super heroes and firemen. But most of the time, those dreams end up just being wishful thinking. As we get older, we grow out of them.

It’s good to play and have dreams as children, but when we grow up, we have to know the difference between a God-given dream and a wish. I remember when I was a little boy, I dreamed of playing basketball for the Houston Rockets. That was definitely a fantasy! Beyond our wishes though, we all have dreams placed inside of us by the Creator of the universe. In fact, the Latin word for “desire” means “from the Father.” One way to tell if a dream is really from God is that the desire won’t go away. You may have had it for years, but you still can’t let it go. In fact, you may have tried to let it go, but it won’t let go of you.

Today, search your heart and allow those God-given dreams to surface. Remember, He placed those desires inside of you for a purpose. Ask Him to order your steps as you embrace the destiny He has in store for you!

A Prayer for Today

“Father, thank You for the dreams and desires You’ve placed within me. I submit them to You and ask that You direct my steps. Search my heart and cause my thoughts to become agreeable to Your Word and to the plan You have for me in Jesus’ name. Amen.”

      The over 50 Chinese nationals own and work at copper smelting plants along the Kalulushi road.

      It is believed that Home Affairs minister Steven Kapyongo ordered the police to shut down the plants and arrest all Chinese citizens.

      Altogether, the eight plants employ about 1300 Zambians.

      Two of the Chinese investors were deported yesterday while the rest are detained at Kasenshi as shown in photo.

      It is believed that the Chinese nationals have injected over 6million dollars in the plant.

  2. Thank you for the Word. May God continue blessing our land by showing each of our people how they should contribute to His Kingdom. God has nothing to do with anything that is not intended for Kingdom Business. We are called to seek His Kingdom first then everything else is added only after we’ve discovered His Kingdom. God Bless Zambia!

  3. How do we tell the difference between a wish and a desire? I find it useful to distinguish between a calling: something that the world needs, an opportunity: a way of meeting such a need, a leading: an opportunity that leads somewhere or that connects with a calling, and a concern: a leading that is tested and supported by our worshipping community.
