TOPIC: Never Give Up On Your Dream – David Ibiyeomie
Heb. 12:2 – Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
A dream in this context can be defined as a picture of your future, as assembled from the scriptures. It is not a desire but a discovery; it is not an ambition, but a vision born out of revelation. It is not a goal that you set but a future you discover from scriptures. It is a picture of what you have been made as contained in scriptures.
Jer.29:11 – For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
In God’s plan lies your future. Therefore, embrace the plan and walk in the reality of its fulfillment.
Rom.4:20 -He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;
God told Abraham that he will be a father of many nations and Abraham believed without wavering. It was a discovery of what he was made that kept him going. You cannot celebrate a future you don’t see. When Abraham discovered his purpose and remained strong in faith, giving glory to God. He was never depressed because the picture was so clear to him. God brought him into a dream of his future, and Abraham believed God. So, the Bible is God’s Dream Book for His children. It is made up of amazing dream seeds. Any of those seeds you capture, cultivate, and nurture, will guarantee a great future for you.
To catch a scriptural dream, you must first of all be in the Spirit because you cannot hear from God except you are in the Spirit. You must come out of the flesh and be in the spirit, if you want to hear from God.
Next step is to engage in prayers and then engage in a spirited search of God’s word and other anointed books that address the issues of concern
Jeremiah 33:3 – Call upon me, and I will answer you, and I will show you great and mighty things which thou knowest not.
Job 14:14 – All the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change come
Never give up on your dream! It took Abraham many years but he got there. You are sure to get there! There is a never-give-up grace that accompanies a scriptural dream. When you have caught it, it shows in your tenacity. Life without a dream is doomed! You are never tired of believing it. You never stop believing what you have seen.
As you see it, start acting it! You cannot see yourself as a king and still be acting like a slave. You cannot catch a scriptural dream without it showing practically in your life. See it! Believe it! Act it!
God bless you
