Earlism #68 Chasing Dreams – A God Dream or The American Dream …

… Who’s Dream Are You Chasing?


“… Can you tell the difference? …

… between chasing … 

… A God Dream …

… and …

… The American Dream …”


Who’s Dream Are You Chasing?


Most people have almost been conditioned to pursue what we call “The American Dream.”

The American Dream – includes some version of … ‘apple pie, hot dogs, baseball & football, a house, a white picket fence, 2.5 kids, and some kind of pet … (I am not much of a dog person)’ … That is a fine dream for many. Some spend their entire lives pursuing it. 

But has anyone ever asked themselves: 

“Who INSPIRED The American Dream?”

Joseph said in the Bible, when discussing Dreams with a couple of imprisoned Egyptian officials, that: “Dreams are God’s Business (Genesis 40:8, NLT).” This means that God is the Progenitor of and Inspiration for all Kingdom Dreams. 

Those are the Dreams … the ONLY Dreams … that Believers should be Chasing and Pursuing with their whole heart and with all of their strength (Jeremiah 29:13, MSG). Frankly we should be Pursuing A God Dream with every fiber of our being and with every aspect of our lives.  

A warning: Pursing A God Dream will also cost you your entire life. 

And it will definitely contradict … in every way … The American Dream … 

But if you want to end up in the Place that God Inspired & Infused into your very being. 

The Place that God Revealed to you via an Inescapable Dream or Vision. 

One which was Imparted into your Heart & Spirit. 

The Place & Thing that you have been Internally Pushed to arrive at and to attain, no matter the cost. 

Then you must seek to attain A God Dream with your whole heart.

More often than not … you will Pursue A God Dream though many difficulties. However and unfortunately, it is at this juncture where many people may decide to pull off of the road and take a break from pursuing A God Dream

At times, during these respites, so many people begin to confuse and conflate A God Dream … with their original … yet not at all God Inspired version of … what is actually … The American Dream …

But for those who can learn to separate the two …

Those who decide that the ONLY DREAM for me is A God Dream …

No matter the Cost (Jeremiah 29:13, MSG) …

Will … just like Joseph …

Leave behind your pursuit of the uninspired, albeit a fine dream for some, version of The American Dream …

And if you keep going …

You will Attain the fully Manifested Version of …


A God Dream!


Genesis 37:5-7, NLT

Joseph had … A God Dream

Genesis 40:8, NLT

Dreams are God’s Business

Genesis 41:8-15, NLT

Only God can Interpret … A God Dream
