When the lord your God brings you into the land you are about to enter and occupy, he will clear away many nations ahead of you: the Hittites, Girgashites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites.” (Deuteronomy 7:1 NLT)

Dream killers are people who constantly shoot down your aspirations with harsh negativity. When some people can’t see themselves reaching for the stars, they can’t, or rather don’t, want to see you reaching them as well. The sad thing is that some of the dream killers in your life don’t really offer words of “wisdom” with malice, but see themselves as just being “realistic.”

God had given Israel a dream, their own Promise Land. Their enemies were the “ites”, all the folks there before them that threatened to kill the dream. God was empowering His people to overcome their dream killers so that they could take hold of their dreams.

What stands in the way of your God-given dream? Let the Lord strengthen and encourage your faith to overcome those things or people. When God has a plan for you, He will see it through! You are loved today!
