DREAM – God gives you a dream.
Ephesians 3:20 “God can do anything, you know – far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest DREAMS! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently among us.” (The Message)
DECISION – You have to make a decision to pursue God’s Dream for your life.
1. TRUST God
Proverbs 3:5-7, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart;do not depend on your own understanding. 6 Seek his will in all you do,
and he will show you which path to take.7 Don’t be impressed with your own wisdom. Instead, fear the Lord and turn away from evil.”(NLT)
2. Ask God for WISDOM.
James 1:5-8 “If you need wisdom – if you want to know what God wants you to do – ask Him, be sure that you really expect Him to answer, for a doubtful mind is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. People like that should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. They can’t make up their minds. They waver back and forth in everything they do.” (NLT)
DIFFICULTY – Then there’s difficulty!
1 Peter 1:6-7 “In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that your faith – of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire – may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.” (NIV)
1. Stay Focused
2. Do what you do well.
3. Make Necessary Adjustments
DEAD END – We reach what feels like a dead end.
Psalm 121:1-2, “I look up to the mountains—does my help come from there? 2 My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth!”(NLT)
DESTINY – God delivers us into our Destiny!
2 Corinthians 1:10-11, “ And He did it, rescued us from certain doom. And He’ll do it again, rescuing us as many times as we need rescuing. You and your prayers are part of the rescue operation – I don’t want you in the dark about that either. I can see your faces even now, lifted in praise for God’s deliverance of us, a rescue in which your prayers played such a crucial part.” (Message)
James 4:7-10, “So let God work his will in you. Yell a loud no to the Devil and watch him scamper. Say a quiet yes to God and he’ll be there in no time. Quit dabbling in sin. Purify your inner life. Quit playing the field. Hit bottom, and cry your eyes out. The fun and games are over. Get serious, really serious. Get down on your knees before the Master; it’s the only way you’ll get on your feet.”
