From the pit to the prison to the palace Joseph went. See your dreams can get you into trouble, but then that trouble is the start of an interesting process that God gets all the glory for. No matter what, don't stop being a dreamer. No matter what mistakes you have made, no matter what sins you have committed, don't stop being a dreamer! You don't need anyone's permission to dream. Have a vision not just when you're sleeping, but when you're AWAKE. Don't dismiss certain daydreams you have as nothing, especially if they're about you being productive in God's Kingdom! Dreams are involuntary so that means they are God-given! See when you are a dreamer, God will let you hear the inaudible and see the invisible. With that you should begin to speak that which has yet to be spoken as you have heard and seen new things in the spirit. God wants YOU to have the words concerning your purpose and destiny come out of YOUR mouth so you know it's real. When you share your dreams, not everyone is going to like it, but so what? If God says it, you should be saying it too! In John 6:63 Jesus said, "It is the Spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life." Speak life concerning your dreams and know that you fulfilling your dreams can impact not only your neighborhood and community, but also even the world! So if you've had a dream, as my pastor (Pastor Erika G. Edwards) would say, "Dream again!"
A real dreamer has favor. They have faith. And they have fortitude. Favor is not earned, it is simply given by God for a divine purpose. Favor is outside of you, so when people hate on you because of the favor of God, just say EXACTLY, it's OF GOD and not me! See what those who hate on your favor are really saying is that they're mad at God because they're not favored, but you are. As we often say, "Favor is not fair." But God is not a respector of persons, He is a respector of principle. Do what I do and you can get what I got. Now faith is key because you have to walk by it and not by sight. What you see sometimes can scare you away, but faith says, "I know there is something great beyond this trouble I see in front of me!" Faith causes you to keep pressing when it seems like there should be no logical reason for you to be pressing at all. But faith does not always follow logic. Faith follows God. Then there is fortitude. Have strength of mind. Don't change your mind about your dreams, no matter what people say and no matter what happens. If your dream is truly from God it will stand!
Be encouraged. Happy New Year!
