4 Things You Must Do To Establish Your Dream
WRITE THE DREAM
You need to know where you are going so you can set your goals for getting there. Therefore, you will have to write your dream and make it plain.
“Write the vision, and make it plain.” I don’t believe God put that in the Bible for us to overlook. You have got to know where you are going.
Every time you read the vision that God has put in your heart, it enables you to run with it. It keeps you focused. It motivates you. It propels you forward.
What is the dream that God has put in your heart? What has God told you to do? What is the thing that causes you to be motivated, causes you to look forward to rising up each and every new day? What is it that puts a dance in your step and a smile on your face? Write it down and keep it before your eyes.
COMMUNICATE WITH GOD
God has a plan for your dream to become a reality. If you are going to hear the plan, you have got to communicate with God. You have got to shut yourself away into a quiet place to pray and to listen to Him.
I learned something from a friend of mine many years ago. He said, “Tranquility produces creativity.” He said, “Surround yourself with things that bring peace to you. When you do, you will always be creative. If you like flowers or trees, plant them everywhere. Then when you walk in your yard, there will be tranquility, and it will cause creativity.”
Find the place in your house that surrounds you with the greatest amount of peace and tranquility. Once you find it, seek God there. Make this your private place to commune with God.
SOW INTO THE DREAMS OF OTHERS
One of the most important things you can do in order to see your vision come to pass is to be a giver. Your dream will never come to pass until you are willing to sow into the dreams of another. Get involved in somebody else’s dream and God will get involved with yours.
In order to possess something that you do not have, you have to be willing to plant something that you do have. If you want to possess your dream, you have to sow toward it. That is the principle that the farmer operates on. If a farmer desires a harvest of corn, he must be willing to plant the seeds that he has.
Your dram will never come to pass until you sow toward that dream. Get involved in somebody else’s dream: sow into it. Every seed produces after its own kind. If you help to make somebody else’s dream come to pass, God will see to it that others will get involved in your dream.
TALK TO OTHER DREAMERS
There will always be somebody who will try to talk you out of your dream. The dreamer is motivated by their dream more than anybody else. That’s the reason it is almost impossible to communicate it to some people. Not everyone is a dreamer.
Talking to other dreamers can be faith – building. It can help you to learn more about where you are in relation to your dream. When you speak to other dreamers who have stepped out in faith, then you realize that you are not alone. When you speak to other dreamers, their faith – filled words will help motivate you to do the impossible.
Dreamers know that God will give them ability beyond their own ability to accomplish their dream. These are the kind of people that you want to talk to about your dreams.
