When i was young i wanted to be a fighter pilot. But as i grew older my expectations and mindset changed so i gave it up. I always believed we should never underestimate dreams. A simple yet powerful idea can impact and shake the entire world. However, i understood now why do dreams get unfulfilled. Sometimes we feel we are nowhere near fulfilling that dream we have in our hearts, let me reveal to you what God has taught me about making dreams come true.
You will find in bookstores books under the self help section that tells you a method, a secret or a technique that if you put in enough effort and never give up and perservere till the end you are guaranteed a dream come true. Now, let me reveal to you what God has taught me instead. Hidden in the bible are treasures of wisdom and knowledge. The bible is a book full of treasures, those who dig deep are the ones who wants to seek the beauty of the Lord and to behold His loveliness.
One word from God can change your life, one revelation from Him can give you the breakthrough you need. Spending time with Him is so satisfying to my innerman. My days become so full and abundant. God even adds to you length of days and long life when you prioritize His word. In every book we see Jesus in the bible. All that we need in this life are found in this amazing book. The scriptures are God breathed. The word of God says that God is a God who exceeds our expectation. He always hears us and gives us all things. Not only that He always over answer and over supply us. He is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we can ask or think.
Let me share with you a story. Once there was a very wealthy prince in the middle east. He wanted to learn how to play golf. So he invited a world renowned golf player to his golf club to teach him golf. They had a wonderful time and the prince was very pleased. So the prince asked, “what can i do for you in return for your kindness in accepting my invitation to teaching me how to play golf?” At first he politely rejected because it was his honor and there’s no need to repay his kindness. But the prince insisted. So in the end he said, “well if you insist maybe i just want a golf club, just one will do”. The prince said, “very well you will get a golf club as a gift from me”. So the golf player waited and wondered how would his golf club looked like? Maybe it will be encrusted with diamonds or maybe it would be made of gold? 3 months have passed but he hasn’t heard from the prince. Finally he received a letter from the prince.
He opened the letter, it says i would like to thank you so much for teaching me how to play golf this is my gift to you as promised, a brand new golf club completely owned by you, where you can play golf anytime it has the latest facilities.The golf player was shocked, he asked for a golf club but the prince gave him an entire place with all the facilities where he can play golf anytime. His own golf club under his name! That my friend is how our heavenly father is like. He always over exceeds our request. Your dreams are too small for God. No dream is too big for God. He always give us much much better and bigger than what we could imagine or think. God loves to surprise us. Just like how fathers surprise their children on their birthday. He loves it when we open our present and our face brims with gladness and joy because what we got is better than what we expected.
First, you need to ask God. Stop complaining about what you don’t have and what you are jealous of when you have a big God with an inexhaustible supply, simply ASK! Second, dream big(God will still exceed that no matter how big you think your dream is). Third, believe it has already been done, that it has already been accomplished. See the end result, God’s way is you believe it first then you will see it. Jesus paid the price at the cross for all the blessings and favor for our lives, a divine exchange took place about 2000 years ago, because of His great love for you He gave you His only Son, heaven’s best for you. It wasn’t an angel who died for us, it was the son of God. He took all He didn’t deserve upon Himself, all the punishment for our sins that offended a holy God, all the judgement that was meant for us fell upon Jesus. We receive freely by faith what we didn’t deserve, all of God’s goodness, blessings, provision, favor. In case you don’t understand why would God be so good to give you something so precious when you did nothing to deserve it, it’s His love and grace towards you my friend, He went to the cross for you and suffered a gruesome death for you, all because of His great love for you. Lastly, thank him for all the things in life that you already have, no matter how small they may be. Have a gratitude attitude. Whatever it is just thank him, trust that He is always a good God and has been good to you. No matter what you are facing always thank Him. When you are going through a trial for your mistakes, thank him. Always justify God and blame ourselves. He loves you even when you fail. He will never give up on you and His everlasting love for you is unconditional. I want to take this opportunity for readers that have felt the love of God and experienced for the first time the presence of God while you are reading this. I have a special word from the Lord for you, whoever you are you feel like you are about to give up hope because you failed in life. God wants to restore to you all that you have lost. He wants to embrace you and kiss you, He doesn’t remember whatever you have done wrong in the past, He wants to give you sonship and adopt you to be the child of the most high. I would like to invite you to say this short prayer with me.
Dear heavenly father, i thank you Lord for sending your one and only son Jesus to die on the cross for my sins, I believe He rose again on the third day, Jesus is my Lord and savior. I am now your child, highly favored, greatly blessed and deeply loved by you. In Jesus name, amen.
If you prayed this prayer you are now a child of God and Jesus is now your Lord and your savior and God is your heavenly father. I recommend as a new christian you start with some resources that will help you in your walk with God. A few good preachers and pastors are Joseph prince from new creation church in Singapore and Joel osteen from lakewood church Texas, America. They preach messages that unveils Jesus’ perfection and beauty. Most of all they preach the finished work and grace filled messages that points to Jesus. You can do a google search on these two names they come as highly recommended as i have been personally impacted by their ministry and they have been a tremendous help to me and my walk with God. You can purchase their resources from their website or you can go to youtube to view the resources for free.
Now unto him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us. Ephesians 3:20
