4 Truths about Dreams
1) You can live your dreams today
To live your dreams is to live in the centre of God’s will. You will never feel envious if you know you’re in the centre of God’s will. In fact you will feel the peace of God.
2) Dreams build your character
It’s not the man that makes the vision, but the vision who makes the man.
What do dreams teach us?
It teaches us:
-Humility. We stay humble to learn so much more. A proud person thinks he has arrived and stops learning.
-Focus. Without a dream we won’t know what distracts us.
-Patience. As we sow, we don’t lose heart and our visions will come to pass.
3) Dreams gives us passion
There’s no such thing as a lazy person, only a person without a purpose.
With a vision, time seems so short. There’s a fire that keeps u going and gives you life.
4) Dreams draw you to God
That same life that gives you your passion for your dream is the same life that causes u to seek God, and knock on God’s door as you trust in Him.
How can we start getting a dream?
1) Listen to your heart
Not all dreams are from God. Some are from our own personal wants.
At night, Your heart speaks the loudest while the voice of the world is the softest. It is the most true, vulnerable You.
2) Trust God for provision
After u listen to God, then its time to trust Him!! Through the Cross, God has made every single provision for us! The question is, can we trust God for it??
33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Matt 6:33
20 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, Eph 3:20
3) Walk with God
While it is the dream that makes us want to knock on heavens door, it is God who keeps the dream.
4 Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. Jn 15:4
We must remain and abide in God; we cannot bear fruit unless we walk with God.
What is walking with God?
It is to talk with with God daily and consult him in every single major decision in your life, and we trust that He knows the best for us.
Sometimes we are afraid to ask because we are afraid that the answer is not what we want it to be. But we need to know He knows the desires of our heart and He has a greater plan for us.
