Ask God to direct your dreams, and you'll live in a way you never could otherwise:
(1) You'll be passionate and ready to go. Being part of God's massive vision for the world is a pretty good reason to get out of bed. God's plan is something we're all involved in, and all have a valuable part in. Put your best shoes on. This is exciting stuff and, the truth is, the passion that the world has to offer - friends, romance, success, fame - doesnt have anything on Jesus' passion.
(2) You'll get an idea of direction. Life beyond the education conveyor belt, with its big decisions, serious study and bills, can be pretty scary. Having your life already directed towards God's visions is an amazing way to start. So your go-to thought becomes 'Does X, Y or Z decision bring me closer to God? No? It's probably not the right thing then.
(3) You'll know what to do with that God-given direction. Have you ever got something you wanted so much and then realised it wasn't that great anyway? New phone? An invitation to that party? None of those things can give you purpose if they're not dedicated to, and used by, God. That's how Jesus is different. Jesus gives meaning. Focusing on God's big vision means that your life matters. God's got things for you to do. Get involved.
So what now? Ask yourself: What makes me passionate, ready to go, etc? Could that be part of God's plan for your life? Do something practical today to begin running after it.
