Jeremiah 29:11 states, “For I know the plans I have for you, ‘says the Lord.’ They are plans for good and not disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” This passage explains God’s desire for us all to have an advantageous future and hope within our life. You could make the case that God even cares about our dreams and even desires us to live them out. Sometimes, though, the fulfillment of these dreams seems almost impossible. This story published by Mercades-Benz is just such an instance.
According to the video, a caring son teamed up with Mercedes-Benz to help his father achieve his lifelong dream. His father, who had been blind from birth, was in love with all things cars. His love of vehicles led him to become a mechanic, and he became very successful in the field. However, there remained one task he simply couldn’t do, which was to drive a car himself. Mercedes-Benz enabled him to drive one of their cars, in the middle of a dried up lake, where nothing was near. This gave the man the opportunity of a lifetime, one where he could complete the task he had been unable to do thus far. There was no speed limit to worry with or obstacles to avoid, so the blind man was able to finally get behind the wheel of a vehicle and drive!
This heart-warming story reminds us that God does care about every aspect of our lives, even our dreams. Though the blind man likely assumed he would never have the chance to drive a car himself, he was given the opportunity, unexpectedly. This is an example of how God can work within our lives to help us achieve our goals.
