Dreams and Visions- 2009 and Beyond-

Ahhh- another year! For some there is great anticipation. For others, another year of unfulfilled dreams and plans. Some are ready to give up on their dreams as they have not come about speedily. After all, that is the way it is supposed to happen, right?

We dislike delay! But think of Noah, a man who stood on the Word of God for over 100 years building an ark, a man who never saw rain until it came. Now that is a delay. We get nervous if we’re delayed a few months. Could you imagine over 100 years?

Hab 2:3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry. KJV

Things I have discovered about dreams and visions:
1. Each person has a dream and a destiny in life. God created you to do something better than anyone else. Not only were you born for a purpose, but also your destiny was all set up before you even knew about it.
2. Your dream provides the blueprint for your purpose in life. You can only be truly happy when pursuing your dream.
3. Your dream will only make sense when you have given your life to Jesus Christ.
4. God wants your dreams and desire to be fulfilled.
5. Dreaming takes courage to break free of past failures, satisfaction, and fears.
6. Dreams must be cultivated with prayer, praise, Bible study, and fellowship.
7. Dreams must be multiplied by generosity, service, love, and readiness to share Jesus with other people.
8. The Holy Spirit is your dream partner. A daily relationship with Him will revolutionize your life and propel you toward your dream.
9. There is a miracle in your house to make your dream possible. You have everything you need to start achieving your dream.
10. Dreams are lifelong endeavors. You must set your pace and never quit.

God has a plan and purpose for your life. Find out what it is and begin to follow it.

Remember- Ecclesiastes 7:8 “The end of a thing is better than its beginning…”
