Unlock Your Dream by Philip Wagner, a Book Review

Philip Wagner writes about finding your God dream in his book Unlock Your Dream. “God gave you a specific desire, an assignment to complete, and it’s something that will be larger than you and will fulfill you completely.” In Psalm 37:4 the Bible talks about “Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.” God wants to give them to you because he put them there. Philip Wagner goes on to say that “Our greatest pursuit will be that dream.”

“The greatest discovery you can make is to learn what God has created you to accomplish.” In Unlock Your Dream you will find practical steps, great examples from the author’s life and those around him, and who you should invite on your journey to finding your dream.

Philip Wagner’s book backed a lot of the things I have already discovered on my own. It was great confirmation. He also gave me some great insight into “surrendering my will and attitude to God”, that He develops our character. “Usually the worst thing that can happen is for us to reach our dream before our character can handle it.” I have been there. Fortunately I do not tend to make the same mistakes twice. This book was great in giving me tangible things to put into practice. Like surrounding myself with encouragers and not those that put you down.

At the end of each chapter he lists: Dream Locks, Dream Keys, and Scripture Key. Basically, what you need to watch out for, what you need to seek out and what Scripture backs up his key points within that chapter. Very helpful!

I enjoyed the fact that this was Philip Wagner’s story. His struggles, his dreams, and all the roads taken to get where he is today. Unlock Your Dream was just what I needed to help get me out of my current “Dream Lock” and focused on a “Dream Key”.
