DREAM Big and DON’T Quit!
I have heard so many “words for 2017” it’s the “year of….” fill it in!
Truly what I heard before it turned into this new year was DREAM BIG…and one other word I have heard through a few prophetic voices… “don’t quit” In fact, Heidi Baker said if you don’t quit…you win!
I believe it all ties into DREAM BIG…when I asked the LORD what HE thought about this new year, what is in His heart I heard this: “it will be what you make of it….so DREAM BIG and DON’T QUIT!” Ha…I love it!
Many words from many streams all boils down to a few words that sum it all up I believe… DREAM BIG and DON’T QUIT!
“2 Consider it wholly joyful, my brethren, whenever you are enveloped in or encounter trials of any sort or fall into various temptations. 3 Be assured and understand that the trial and proving of your faith bring out endurance and steadfastness and patience. 4 But let endurance and steadfastness and patience have full play and do a thorough work, so that you may be [people] perfectly and fully developed [with no defects], lacking in nothing. 5 If any of you is deficient in wisdom, let him ask of the giving God [Who gives] to everyone liberally and ungrudgingly, without reproaching or faultfinding, and it will be given him. 6 Only it must be in faith that he asks with no wavering (no hesitating, no doubting). For the one who wavers (hesitates, doubts) is like the billowing surge out at sea that is blown hither and thither and tossed by the wind. 7 For truly, let not such a person imagine that he will receive anything [he asks for] from the Lord, 8 [For being as he is] a man of two minds (hesitating, dubious, irresolute), [he is] unstable and unreliable and uncertain about everything [he thinks, feels, decides].”
Whenever we are faced with trials and various impossible circumstances or situations, it creates the opportunity for what is impossible to be possible with GOD and gives us the chance to experience the goodness of GOD!
When we experience that, we see our faith grow and learn “how” to endure steadfastly with patience because we are acquainted WITH Heavenly Father and HIS goodness!
These life lessons help us to become fully developed because we seek to know and understand the ONE Who can take the impossible and make it possible! We begin to “seek His wisdom” so we can grow in knowledge of WHO He really is! When we seek first HIS Kingdom and HIS righteousness…we are seeking to know and understand Him and His ways!
We have to ask with confident hearts that HE will answer otherwise, we are double minded and won’t receive what we ask basically because we really deep down…do not believe!
How does this relate to DREAM BIG? IF we have THIS foundation, we won’t be inclined to “quit”. We win when we don’t quit!
SO…that in mind….dream big….run your race and don’t quit and you win!
Could it really be that simple? YEP! It really is that simple!
My counsel to you who read this is get alone with the LORD and talk with Him. Write down impressions, dreams, visions, words, scriptures you receive or is in your heart. Talk with Him about it. Then here is the WORD on this…
“3 Roll your works upon the Lord [commit and trust them wholly to Him; He will cause your thoughts to become agreeable to His will, and] so shall your plans be established and succeed.” Proverbs 16:3
Verse 1-2 kind of explains this a bit…. “The plans of the mind and orderly thinking belong to man, but from the Lord comes the [wise] answer of the tongue. 2 All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the spirits (the thoughts and intents of the heart).”
See we write the dreams we have down in an orderly fashion and that is good. The Lord comes in and weighs the agenda in our hearts about it and makes the necessary corrections to perfect HIS plan in us. That is where verse 3 comes in …go back and read that again. WHEN we dream, we need to dream WITH Him..His will…His way…HE loves us and wants to give us a “dream”! Remember…HIS Kingdom come and HIS WILL be done on earth as it is in Heaven…
Call unto the LORD for those dreams to enlarge! “3 Call to Me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things, fenced in and hidden, which you do not know (do not distinguish and recognize, have knowledge of and understand).” Jer. 33:3
Dream BIG…with NO fear…and DON’T quit beloved! Let go of the past or else your plow will go all over a field missing the mark you are shooting for. You cannot plow a ground holding on the plow looking backwards! KEEP your eyes focused upon the LORD JESUS and the plans you have talked with Heavenly Father about that HE has given to you! ALLOW Holy Spirit to “guide your plow” and do not look back holding on to the past!! LET IT GO! MOVE FORWARD quickly run into it beloved!!!
DREAM BIG and DO NOT QUIT and not only do YOU win…we will all win because GOD will reveal something about HIS nature through you NO ONE else can ever do beloved ones! WOO HOO!!!! HALLELUJAH!!! That should make you shout!
“Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]…” Ephesians 3:20
Happy, Blessed and VERY Prosperous NEW YEAR in this KINGDOM AGE!!!
