27 Apr The Power of Dreams
The Bible says when you received Jesus you received the seed of greatness. It is not God€™s plan for you to remain nobody.
We are people of reformation; but we need to have our minds transformed first otherwise nothing will happen.
Let€™s read the book of Genesis 37 together.
Joseph was seventeen years old and his brothers hated Joseph.
John Maxwell said: “your altitude determined by your attitude.”
It took God 13 years to change a shepherd boy called Joseph; from a bitter boy to be a prince of Egypt. Joseph knew the pit is not his place, but the palace is!
You can begin in the pit but you don€™t have to end in the pit. The way to get out of the pit is the dream that God gave you, and this is what made Joseph prince of Egypt.
From where you are to the place God has prepared for you, the most important thing is not the destination but the journey. Because the destiny is already there, you don€™t have to make it. But the journey will make you become who God wants you to be. Life is not about accumulating wealth but to become who God wants you to be.
What is a dream?
Let me tell you about a billionaire Bill Gates. It was started in the seashore of Seattle, and he had a dream that one day every household in America will have a personal computer.
It all started with a dream! And this is what happened to Joseph. From Joseph€™s journey, you will learn how to move from tragedies to triumphs, from pain to promises, from failure to fulfillment. You are not destined to fail, you are destined to succeed and be significant.
Today, have you stopped dreaming? If you have, you are already dead. Don€™t stop dreaming.
Are you dreaming something grander than yourself? Are you dreaming something bigger than your capacity?
Dream is a golden ladder by which you climb to the heavenly places. That is the dream of Jacob. Dreams are the mountains peaks of visions that we climb and look over to the Promised Land. What make one strong to go through adversities are the dreams from God.
Taking the dreams out of a leader, you are taking the heart out of the person. Dream is the picture that got burned in your heart. People, starts dreaming!
The biggest theatre of your life is in your mind. Dreams are the stuffs that life is made of. Walt Disney€™s said, “If you can dream it, you can do it”.
Acts 2:14-17 “Then Peter stood up with the Eleven, raised his voice and addressed the crowd: “Fellow Jews and all of you who live in Jerusalem, let me explain this to you; listen carefully to what I say. These men are not drunk, as you suppose. It’s only nine in the morning! No, this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel: “In the last days, God says, will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams.”
Paul said in Acts 26:19 “So then, King Agrippa, I was not disobedient to the vision from heaven.”
The dream that you have been dreaming will come true! As with Joseph€™s story, thirteen years later, his brothers and father saw Joseph€™s dreams came true.
