Put legs on your dream

Ecclesiastes 5:3, 7 (KJV)

For a dream cometh through the multitude of business; and a fool's voice is known by multitude of words.

For in the multitude of dreams and many words there are also divers vanities: but fear thou God.

It’s recorded that Solomon wrote the book of Ecclesiastes, a book full of wisdom he gained in his lifetime. In verse 3, we see that dreams don’t just happen. Even if God has placed that dream, that vision in your heart it will take effort to see it come to pass. We can talk about our dreams all day. We can write them down. Even think about them. There comes a moment though, when we will have to put legs on these dreams. Don’t get me wrong, talking about your dreams and definitely writing them down is a pivotal point. After a while, if there are no results from all the words, people will not take you seriously. It matters what you are doing to see the big dream come to pass. In verse 7, we see that too many dreams and too many words can bring a state of meaningless progress. We could find ourselves going in circles, chasing vanities. We must be intentional about seeking God for the right path with a Godly fear as your compass. It seems Solomon is saying take the dream, not the dreams, and be diligent with your part and wise with your words. Too much talk leads to foolishness. Let’s bee-lieve in the God-given dream.


I thank You, God, for the dream, the vision, the desire to walk out my calling. Thank You for leading me to the right person at the right time. I don’t want to be so busy that I miss what You are saying to me. I don’t want to talk so much that I become a sounding brass and a tinkling cymbal with no real substance to move forward with. You have given me instructions in this passage of scriptures that can bring about every dream that You put in my heart. Help me to fear You with a Godly fear and to not cause other people to stumble from my foolishness and neglect. Amen.
