Dreams Are Doable! – (Bullet Points from a recent conference)
“And the doubling of Pharaoh’s dream means that the thing is fixed by God and God will shortly bring it about.” Genesis 41: 32 ESV
Additional scriptures to study:
Philippians 3:13-14 ESV
Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
Luke 14:28 ESV
For which of you, desiring to build a tower, does not first sit down and count the cost, whether he has enough to complete it?
Proverbs 3:5-6 ESV
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
Isaiah 54:2 ESV
Enlarge the place of your tent, and let the curtains of your habitations be stretched out; do not hold back; lengthen your cords and strengthen your stakes.
Matthew 6:33 ESV
But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
Proverbs 29:18 ESV
Where there is no prophetic vision the people cast off restraint, but blessed is he who keeps the law.
BULLET POINTS OF “The Dream Is Doable!”
This is a biblical principle. Similarly, Jesus said “Verily Verily” I say unto you.
♦ It is the principle of double enunciation. ♦
The dream came twice that meant the thing was fixed by God and God will bring it to pass.
There is a way to do what God has put in your heart. Once you determine I’m going to do the will of God, there will be someone to help you.
*God has a way of making up for lost time. Time is human. God is eternal with an eternal Kingdom.
There are three things to do when God speaks to you about a dream.
2. Follow instructions
3. Don’t quit
There are five different relationships you will need to fulfill your dream.
2. Spiritual Friends
3. Spiritual Influences
4. Spiritual Mentors
5. Spiritual Authority
What happens when your dreams die ? Sometimes dreams never really die, they just need to be dusted off.
And then sometimes the dream dies. That’s when God wants to give you another one.
This is when we stay flexible we stay bendable. We allow God to tweak us and to adjust us.
Ask God to show you his fingerprints upon your life. If you have stopped dreaming, he will give you a new one.
Some people say if you dream it you can have it. But I disagree. If GOD dreams it through you then you can achieve it. It must be God’s Dream through you. The doubling of the dream meant that it was established by God. Your dreams are doable if they come from God.
If God has shown you something twice or if he has put it in your spirit twice or if you have had two similar prophetic words or if you have heard your pastor or leader confirm through the preaching or teaching of God’s word twice, then know that God is going to fulfill it.
Don’t lose hope. Don’t give up. Confess God’s word. God will show you more than once about the dream. He will keep showing you so that you will not lose hope.
How do you know a dream is from God? If you have a dream and it is reoccurring in your life and it will not die, if it will not leave your spirit– that is an indication that the dream is from God.
Ask yourself a few questions. (John Maxwell is the best!)
Is my dream really from God?
Do I see my dream clearly?
Am I depending on factors within my control to achieve my dream?
Is my dream compelling?
Do I have a strategy to reach my dream?
Have I included the people I need to realize my dream?
Am I willing to pay the price?
Am I moving closer to my dream?
Will working toward my dream bring satisfaction?
Does my dream benefit others?
*Keep the word before you. Dream in advance so that you can build your dream.
Your dream needs more than anointing. Jesus was anointed but he had a team. Jesus was anointed but he had a strategy. Jesus was anointed but he had a prayer life.
There is power in a compelling dream. Get up and get going. Fast and pray. Decree and declare God’s word. Dream again. There is hope and space for your dream.
Take steps necessary even when you start small. You have to start somewhere. Do not fear the small steps. Don’t lose HOPE! The Dream Is DOABLE!
