This is for all of you who have a dream in your heart, a deep longing, something you have been working hard on… and not seeing fruition.
You are tempted to give up at times, or at a minimum lose sight of your desire, or retreat and settle. You question, doubt, and wonder. But God’s got your dreams!
Read what He told me:
“No more waffling, whining, or wait and see. There is an enemy who wants to steal your dreams. I am not he.
Go for what you want! You have a voice that needs to be heard. You have spent enough years in the wilderness. Your Promised Land time is here!
No more grasshopper thinking. I am big enough to conquer any giant, overcome any obstacle, and provide for every need, want, and desire. Let us release Our spirit together! You and I are one. We are connected, united, and have an air tight relationship! You cannot fail.
Stand up! Square your shoulders! Break through the comfort zone. Get yourself ready for battle, but know I have already won. The victory is mine, and you get to reap the rewards.
Do not get distracted by anyone else’s agenda. Stay attuned to My Voice. Come to My banqueting table and feast!
So, what do you want? Tell me what you want!”
After hearing this, I went to the Lord and asked for more. I wrote all my dreams and desires down. A new surge of power rose up inside me and I saw all kinds of people standing in front of me that needed to be strongly encouraged. I trust that if you are reading this, you are one of them.
Then a vision came to me.
I saw that each of us is on the path to our dreams. In the middle of the path was a huge mountain of rubble, stone, and concrete. I knew the mountain had once been blasted, but the rubble landed in the path. I climbed to the top of the heap, and began flinging boulders into a nearby sea. Mark 11:23-24 came to mind, and I knew what the Lord was saying.
“Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it will be granted him. Therefore I say unto you, whatever things you desire, when you pray, believe that you will receive them, and you shall have them.”
Friends, we must be done with doubting. We must stand our ground and move forward in the plans and strategies God has for us. Many Israelites never made it into the Promised Land because of doubt and grasshopper thinking.
Yes, that means learning how to hear the voice of God and aligning your thought and beliefs with Him. It means being transformed by the renewing of our minds. It means trusting that He is good, you are good, and the dreams He put on your heart is good. It means believing without doubt that He has given and will give you everything you need to fulfill it. Ask Him to teach you how to access His storehouse. Your name is on it. Go for it.
