The Field of Dreams
And without faith it is impossible to please HIM, for whoever would draw near to GOD must believe that HE exists and that HE rewards those who seek HIM.
I was reminded this morning of a movie that came out many years ago. It was called the Field of Dreams. As I remember there was a man who I believe at some point was hurt and no longer able to play baseball. He worked his farm and was a good husband and father. Yet, he always had this desire for more. His missed opportunity lingered over him.
I don't remember all of the movie, but what stuck out this morning about the movie are these words: "If you build it, they will come." You see this man saw a vision of an old famous baseball player in his field. And at some point the words were spoken to him, "If you build it they will come." So the man believed and he began to build a baseball field right in the midst of his property. No one understood what he was doing, because no one could see the visions of those who stood in his field except for him. Yet, he kept on building the field; bleachers and all!
The word for you today, is "If you build it, they will come!" GOD has given us all visions that have sparked our spirits to believe and to work hard to bring about the things HE has told us HE would do in and through us. Yet, at times we allow the voices of others (or the enemy in the first person), tell us that we cannot do it. The enemy of your soul will use those closest to you at times to do his work. Yet, I say to you, it does not matter who believes in you and what you are doing. The only question is; Do you believe the GOD who made you the promise and gave you the vision? If so, then pick up your shovel and dig in. Build it! Do your part and watch HIM bless you in amazing ways!
Be encouraged today, and keep on building. Keep on Believing!
