A DREAM A VISION A FUTURE
Good morning children of God this is truly a blessed day in our lives.We were awakened this morning and provided with the opportunity of living in the future, with great hopes and the aspirations of achieving greatness in our season. For God shows us things that we may not always understand or even comprehend within our limited thinking, but he gave us this day as a very special holiday to honor, and celebrate the life and legacy of one of the world’s greatest visionaries who had a dream and a vision and dared to live out that dream. That person was none other than the Hon. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
SCRIPTURE: And the Lord answered me and said, Write the vision and engrave it so plainly upon tablets that everyone who passes may [be able to] read [it easily and quickly] as he hastens by. (Habakkuk 2:2-3 KJV) this is what Dr. King did for us in his day and time, he wrote the vision, and he wrote it upon each one of our hearts, that wherever we are that we may be able to see it, read it, and live it in our day and time.
SCRIPTURE: For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome. (Jeremiah 29:11 AMP) and this part of the Scriptures we can see the journey be in birth as God gave it to one of his great prophets, and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. followed in the footsteps of this prophet.
We are called into action this day to do our part to keep the dream alive. How each one of us uses this day will bear heavily on our own individual futures. A dream a vision a future is alive in each one of us, what will we do this day to birth it into reality?
There are many people in this world that are living in denial of this legacy and the many great contributions that Dr. King made to this world. Their denial is based on ignorant and stupidity, but Dr. King’s dream will live on in eternity. Because of Dr. King’s dream and a vision he birth hope for a brighter future in the lives of many young people from all around the world, and people of all races creeds, colors, and religious backgrounds were awakened to the reality that they too, would be able to achieve greatness within themselves.
In Dr. Martin Luther King’s dream and vision he followed the pathway of another great servant of God, and asked God to guide his heart and give him understanding on how to lead his people. That’s servant was King Solomon who led the nation of Israel for many generations before the birth of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. King Solomon had a dream and he went before God, and he said to God,” give therefore thy servant and understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and evil, for who is able to judge this thy so great a people? (1 King 3:9 KJV)
We as the CHILDREN OF GOD are all called to dream great dreams, then dare to live out those dreams. We must be about the business of God each and every day, doing his will as we walk in the path of righteousness for his name sake. Yes my brothers and sisters, let us use this day as a day of action, that we as children of God who seek God’s guidance and understanding to live together as one people, not separated by race or the color of our skin, but truly recognize in each other the content of our characters, and live in peace with love in our hearts for one another.
Now may the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, be upon each one of you to walk out your purpose and live in his will and seek his blessings over your life and the lives of all those who come into your presence this day.
