Dreams and Words

For a dream cometh through the multitude of business; and a fool’s voice is known by multitude of words.

Ecclesiastes 5:3

When we think of dreams and “dreamers”, we usually think of a person sitting around thinking about things.  We might think of a daydreamer.  We might think of some people sitting around a table talking out a great idea for something.  But this verse tells a different story.

This verse tells us that “a dream cometh through the multitude of business.”  How do we get a dream?  We get to work.  As we work and do the things that we are supposed to do, the Lord gives us more to do.  He gives us the dream and He gives us the strength to see that dream to fruition.

On the other hand, it is a “fool’s voice” that is know by a “multitude of words.”  When we just sit around talking about what we should be doing, we are not going to be given that dream.  We can dream about all the earthly things we want, but the Lord is not going to put a great dream of doing something for Him in our hearts if we aren’t busy working and doing the things He has already commanded us to do.

If we really want the Lord to have us do something for Him, we can’t sit around and wish it were so.  We need to start doing the things that we know He has given us to do.  Dreams come through work, not words!
