“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” [Hebrews 13:8]
Recently we watched ‘Great Expectations’. Simply put, it was the principle of all things working together for the good and that light is the ultimate place of renewal and restoration. What a wealth of understanding shines through the writings of Charles Dickens. Dreams do come true, and God is faithful in all of His ways. Expectations come from unexpected places and fleeting moments of kindness bring great reward. Failure lies in man’s inability to believe God’s Word and understand God’s Ways. Dreams are birthed and built in the midst of joy and sorrow.
Abraham got is wrong, listened to the wrong voice, told a lie and disobeyed God, but through it all he learned to trust God! Man goes through the gateway of life and the path is dimly lit. It is the dream that creates the direction. Time unfolds the dream and circumstances are the way-stations, the lay-by’s, the cul-de-sacs, where renewal refreshing and understanding is given, empowerment unfolds and guides man toward a dreamed fulfilled.
Whether we understand through the life of Abraham or that of Mr. Pip – truth never changes and our God is the same yesterday, today and forever. Whatever your expectations are when trusting in the grace and goodness of God, your dreams shall come to fruition.
