Taking the Initiative Against Daydreaming

My Utmost His Highest

"Arise, let us go from here." (John 14:31)

Daydreaming about something in order to do it properly is right, but daydreaming about it when we should be doing it is wrong. . . When our purpose is to seek God and to discover His will for us, daydreaming is right and acceptable. But when our inclination is to spend time daydreaming over what we have already been told to do, it is unacceptable and God’s blessing is never on it. God will take the initiative against this kind of daydreaming by prodding us to action. His instructions to us will be along the lines of this: “Don’t sit or stand there, just go!” . . . Allow Him to be the source of all your dreams, joys, and delights, and be careful to go and obey what He has said. . . Daydreaming after God has spoken is an indication that we do not trust Him.
