Is it money, not enough time or lack of confidence?
I bet if you took a closer look you may find other reasons. Could it be;
Too much reliance on people and not enough trust in God.
Those are two of the most overlooked reasons.
The underlying cause to many unfulfilled dreams is the insufficiency of seeing what God can do.
So we should ask the questions;
How many businesses have been started without ever receiving a loan and been successful?
How many careers have been launched without all the required skills?
How could many businesses have remained open during the trying economic times when others had to close their doors?
Could that have been divine intervention on their behalf?
Did they ask God to lead and listen to His subtle guidance?
In some cases I believe so.
I also believe God will do what He says. However, are you trusting enough to ask?
Trust God from the bottom of your heart;
don't try to figure out everything on your own.
Listen for God 's voice in everything you do, everywhere you go;
he's the one who will keep you on track.
Proverbs 3:5,6 The Message Bible
By human nature when in need we usually ask help from the most comfortable sources, other people.
When we find they are unwilling or unable to assist, we sometimes decide what I am pursuing may not be what we are supposed to be doing.
But perhaps what has happened is we looked to the wrong individual instead of asking God to lead us. God has said if we trust in Him He is capable of directing all of our paths.
Sadly, many no longer believe that God has the ability to usher us into our dreams.
Although He is the one that has ultimately placed them in our hearts.
Even if we are not aware or acknowledge Him for doing so.
For that reason alone He is be able to open the doors.
How many more doors would He open if we learned to trust Him more?
The more we learn to rely on God in everything the stronger our trust and belief in Him becomes.
Wouldn't it be much better if we talked to God about all our heart's desires?
It's easy to start wherever you are. Nothing's too big and nothing's to small. God cares about you and He cares about your desires. He is waiting for you to trust Him with all you hold dear.
