I have heard it said that “nothing significant occurs without the atmosphere of opposition.” And that is absolutely true. Most of the people we consider great are admired for the difficult situations they have overcome. People love champions. The reason they are champions is because they conquered challenges, destroyed their enemies, or exemplified great courage.
Most of these champions have one thing in common. They were all dreamers! People who dream are the difference makers of our world. Someone said; “nothing happens until you dream.”
Dreams birth passion
Dreams produce power
Dreams perpetuate perseverance
Dreams begin with God
God shared His dream and desires with every person He encountered.
Every person that God engaged He challenged, empowered, and inspired them with a dream.
Abraham was shown the stars
Moses was drawn to a burning bush
Noah was challenged to build an Ark
What has God challenged you to do?
I am convinced that God has a dream for every one of us.
I am equally convinced that God created a purpose for every person before he created the person!
We know we have an enemy. Fact is we have several. The biggest enemy may not be the devil. I have learned the biggest enemies are often internal. The severity of our struggle may be in believing in ourselves and accepting God’s divine calling and willingly reaching for our dreams. This takes courage.
Allow me to list a few thieves that try to steal your dream.
Pursuing your dream is demanding. Jesus told us to count the cost. The children of Israel faced multiple problems en route to claiming God’s promises. Enemies often surround God’s promises in order to steal the dream and to belittle our God. Make a demand on yourself to claim and take all that God has promised you in your dream.
Many of God’s servants were disrupted in the pursuit of what God had promised. The children of Israel were disrupted with armies defying them access to cross their land. This is simply a type of Satan and circumstance that simply disrupts the rhythm and tries to throw water on the fire of your dream.
Delay is the tool that God uses to drive the dream deeper and make it stronger.
There are multiple promises from Father about delay.
Waiting only strengthens you
Due season is coming and reaping follows
because you rarely or never receive more than you dream for!
I have learned to allow my prayers to be my dream gauge!
Why type of prayers am I praying? Maintenance prayers? Fixing prayers?
Foolish prayers or audacious prayers?
My prayer life is the gauge of my dreams!
Remember, if you can pray it, God can do it!
