Introduction to Follow that Dream

Many young girls have dreams of marriage or stardom. They dream of the men they hope to marry. Grown-up reality has a way of debunking most of those dreams. Too often a child’s dream involves perfection—the happily-ever-after syndrome, and real people don’t live up to that kind of expectation.

Adults are not always any better! Many of our dreams come from what we watch on television or what we read in novels. When life doesn’t match those ideals, we think that we have missed out, that the person or situation we face is not normal, when in fact it may be!
This study deals with the dreams that God gives, dreams that He births in us, visions of the future that He has planned for us. When God gives us a dream, it involves His plans and His purposes. He is the one who brings the dream to pass.
As we look at Joshua’s life and his leadership, we will see that he was responsible for bringing God’s dream for the people of Israel to reality; we will see that difficulty and setbacks were involved, even though it was a dream birthed by God. Following God’s dream is not an easy road, but it is well worth the effort.
I pray that you will learn from Joshua some lessons that will serve you well as you follow that dream that God has placed in your heart.
