As children of the Lord, we should always keep in mind that we are called
to be a victorious people. The Lord has instilled great dreams and
aspirations within each of our hearts, but it is up to us whether those
dreams are realized. The Bible declares in Proverbs 23:7 "For as he
thinketh in his heart, so is he..." This scripture does not specify
success or failure, but it tells us that whatever we think in our hearts,
that is true. We must make up our minds and see our dreams being realized.
We cannot have a vision of defeat in our minds and think our dreams will
come to pass. God says in Genesis 11:6 "And now nothing will be restrained
from them, which they have imagined to do." Encourage yourself in the Lord
and imagine your dreams coming true. Believe the Lord's Word and see
yourself prospering and successful in every area of life. (Romans 12:3-8)
I hope you are encouraged by today's message to continually dream big
dreams and know that you are called to be victorious and triumphant over
every obstacle that comes your way.
GROW GREAT BY DREAMS
The question was once asked of a highly successful businessman: "How have
you done so much in your lifetime?"
He replied, "I have dreamed. I have turned my mind loose to imagine what I
wanted to do. Then I have gone to bed and thought about my dreams. In the
night I dreamt about my dreams. And when I awoke in the morning, I saw the
way to make my dreams real. While other people were saying, 'You can't do
that, it isn't possible,' I was well on my way to achieving what I wanted."
As Woodrow Wilson, 28th President of the U.S., said: "We grow great by
dreams. All big men are dreamers."
"They see things in the soft haze of a spring day, or in the red fire on a
long winter's evening. Some of us let these great dreams die, but others
nourish and protect them; nourish them through bad days until they bring
them to the sunshine and light which comes always to those who sincerely
hope that their dreams will come true."
"So please, don't let anyone steal your dreams, or try to tell you they
are too impossible."
"Sing your song, dream your dreams, hope your hope and pray your prayer."
If you have been feeling discouraged and want to give up on your dreams,
be encouraged and know that God is not finished with you yet. Continue to
dream your dreams and get it in your mind that with God all things are
possible to those who believe. Believe in yourself and trust that God is
able to do exceeding abundantly above all that you can ask or even think.
(1 Peter 2:9-10) (Ezekiel 37:3-14) (Hebrews 12:1-3) (Ephesians 3:20-21)
Read and meditate on these scriptures:
Romans 8:31-32 "What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us,
who can be against us? He that spared not His own Son, but delivered Him
up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?"
Psalm 145:14-19 "The LORD upholdeth all that fall, and raiseth up all those
that be bowed down. The eyes of all wait upon Thee; and Thou givest them
their meat in due season. Thou openest Thine hand, and satisfiest the
desire of every living thing. The LORD is righteous in all His ways, and
Holy in all His works. The LORD is nigh unto all them that call upon Him,
to all that call upon Him in truth. He will fulfil the desire of them that
fear Him: He also will hear their cry, and will save them."
Jeremiah 29:11-13 "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith
the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
Then shall ye call upon Me, and ye shall go and pray unto Me, and I will
hearken unto you. And ye shall seek Me, and find Me, when ye shall search
for Me with all your heart."
Philippians 3:13-14 "Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but
this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching
forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the
prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus."
All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
