Why Dream?

Dancing with Destiny: Quotes from Dreamers: “In the Broom Closet of Prayer”
Do you realize that your life is not a mistake? It starts with God’s dream for you. We are created in the image of our Father, we are called to be creative dreamers.

Dreaming is wild and fun. In our heart of hearts, we would never choose a life that has no adventure. It is be­cause of our fear and our smallness that we wind up seek­ing only what is “safe.” We learn to value comfort and security. But what we call security is really insecurity and mediocrity. God wants us to take risks, to know the thrill and exhilaration of dreaming big.

God never punishes us when we dream big. He wants us to dream big dreams. He is calling us to be “007” special-ops agents behind the scenes for Him. With Jesus our potential is unrestricted.
Wow. This sure goes along with our theme of Taking the Limits Off. “Our fear and smallness = seeking what is safe.” He calls us to take risks – not blindly diving into something, but following His lead and trusting He will not lead us astray. HE is with us every step of the way – Don’t go alone. Lone Rangers become easy targets for the enemy to surround and defeat.

Why is this so important for us to understand? Because God has prepared us for this hour. Each of us needs to pray and get fresh revelation with understanding for this critical time in history. We need to hear strategies from the counsels of God.

The enemy sees your potential. He knows that your life has God-ordained destiny. Your dreams are dangerous to him. If you embrace God’s full purposes for your life, you will be a powerful weapon to defeat him and bring freedom to many.

This quote speaks SO much to me. We cannot see into the spiritual realm unless God reveals it to us. The Bible says we are sealed and with Jesus living in us, I can picture what it would look like spiritually as we walk into a dark place. We SHINE and the darkness cannot help but notice you. Ever been growled at? It’s a weird experience but very reassuring to realize that you are recognized as belonging to God. We need to be “Glow-in-the-Dark” Christians – shining in dark places.

I don’t think we fully understand that WE are dangerous to the enemy of our souls. When we begin walk in ALL that God has for us, he cannot stop us. He can only oppose us by distracting us from our mission or trying to deceive us into believe we are not really who God says we are. Learn who you are in Christ. Walk in the authority that God has given to YOU. Don’t lay it down or give it away. If you feel it is “lost” or “stolen”, ask God to restore it to you. He will give you everything you need to fulfill your destiny. Once we learn it, we can pick up our weapons, walk in our destiny, and bring the same freedom to others.
