WHAT’S YOUR VISION – WHAT ARE YOU DREAMING? What promises are you holding on to?
Recently our church had a leadership conference called Dream On…
We felt to stir our leaders to keep on dreaming; either the dream that has dwindled or to start to dream again the new thing that God is stirring in their hearts. Below is an excerpt from the conference welcome letter by our Lead Pastor John Scholtz:
We all carry dreams in our hearts of what may be in the future in the place where God has called us. They are genuine dreams, dreams, which God has put there.
For many the journey has been long and hard. The dreams may have led to disappointments and hurts and heartache, but God wants us to “Dream on…”
We need to re-discover the deep secret dreams that we each carry, dreams that have all but died, but need to live on.
Never let it be said that to dream is a waste of one’s time. For dreams are our realities in waiting. In dreams, we plant the seeds for the future.
PROVERBS 29:18 Where there is no prophetic vision the people cast off restraint, but blessed is he who keeps the law.
Below are some points and thoughts that were stirred in my heart as I considered this topic.
GOD’s VISION The POWER of PROPHECY and Supernatural Dreaming…
ACTS 2:16-18 But this is what was uttered through the prophet Joel [2:28-29]: 17 “‘And in the last days it shall be, God declares, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams; 18 even on my male servants and female servants in those days I will pour out my Spirit, and they shall prophesy.
BOLD VISION SUCCEEDS YOUR DREAM – Dream big and pass on the vision to other in order to leave a legacy.
SET PRACTICAL STEPS TO FULFIL YOUR DREAM – Ask yourself ‘what must I do to achieve the vision through short term goals?’ Action trumps everything!
FAMILY VISION: DREAM MARRIAGE – The secret to success is being of one heart and vision. Consider and consult your family when setting goals – you can’t do it alone!
STRENGTH: POWER UP AND DREAM ON… Prioritise praise in God’s presence, as you abide in His strength and power He will direct our paths as we pursue the vision that He has given us.
