Dream for You

Songfacts®:

  • This song about the supremacy of divine plans serves as a reminder of how God's dream for us is bigger than we could ever imagine. "We have this picture of who God can use," frontman Mark Hall explained, adding that when God spoke to Moses, he found reasons he couldn't do what God asked. "What God had to do for Moses is He had to wipe away that picture and say, 'I'm going to use you.' It's the same way with us," he said. "When God hits us with something like 'You need to teach this small group' or 'you need to live on a mission field,' we immediately look in our own backpack at our gifts and skills. If I would have lived on that, I would have never been a youth pastor. I would have never written a song. I would have never stood up in front of anybody. I don't have any of those things in my backpack. . . God is saying, 'There's an X-factor here. If you would just step up, I'll do something that will blow your mind.'"
