A friend emailed me the link to the Women of Faith Conference that will take place in San Jose. There is a Pre-Conference called, “God Has a Dream for Your Life”. Check out the preview video in the ad. Listening to the video, it sounds like it is all Psychobabble and New Age ‘lite’. If this dream they are referring to is founded in scripture, then it would be instruction and encouragement from God from His Word. But this preview, anyway, does not give any indication of this. I would be interested in the content of this talk. Will it be loaded with truth from the Word of God, or more Freud-Skinner-Maslow, et al?
They talk about understanding your self so you can reach the dreams you have not dared to dream, about dreams residing in your soul, dreams in your heart, so you will understand you better. It sounds like psychoanalysis, in it’s reference to past psychological trauma. It says there is a path God has laid out for us and the psychologist will help us understand what that path is. Is this path the truth of God’s Word? If this is about how God leads us to serve Him by His Holy Spirit, and guides us, and will also work out all things together for good for those who love God, who are called according to His purpose, why don’t they give a hint of this in the preview video? They say it’s not going to be like your 6th grade Sunday School class: it will be fun!
They use the analogy of Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz “finding her path” when someone tells her to follow the yellow brick road. What is this? Is this supposed to symbolize following God according to His Word? Or what?
God does not have a dream for your life. He has a plan, and a will, and truth, which we should humbly follow, obey and trust. Brothers and sisters, this is not Christianity. Again, modern Evangelicalism is sounding more like my college Psych class, and my local New Age talk radio station.
The mind of man plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps. Prov.16:9.
Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but the counsel of the Lord, it will stand. Prov.19:21.
..yet not My will, but Thine be done. Luke 22:42.
