Did you know there is only one thing standing between your dreams and reality? Yes, only one thing… it's Y-O-U! By that I mean, are you Yielded to God's plan for your life, Obedient to His Word and ready to Unlock the gifts and talents He has already given you?
If your answer is "yes", great! Achieving your dreams will take the four Ps: Prayer (yours), Participation (yours), Preparation (yours) and Perspiration (yours)! Get ready to shift into overdrive, transform your thoughts into things and make your God-given vision a reality.
How? I'm glad you asked!
1. Believe: Don't listen to the naysayers and dream killers. Do not allow anyone to speak death to your dreams. When God calls and anoints you for a purpose, it doesn't matter what anyone else says.
2. Conceive: God-inspired ideas are ours for the asking. Have you had any lately? Write them down! Make the vision plain and develop a plan as God leads. Don't talk yourself out of it, even if it seems impossible. Look at the Him-possibilities instead.
3. Receive: When God calls you to do something, He will provide everything you need to do it. Sometimes it's already in your hands and sometimes He will give it to you just when you need it by sending the right people and resources into your life. Whatever the case, trust Him completely, even when you can't clearly see the outcome. That's what walking by faith is all about.
This year was a wakeup call for me. I decided that it's time to do more than just dream. I got started. What about Y-O-U?
Today's Scripture: Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the plans that I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
