Seeing Your Dreams

If people can’t see what God is doing, they stumble all over themselves; but when they attend to what he reveals, they are most blessed. Proverbs 29:18 Message

In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Acts 2:17

“God is writing great exploits upon the hearts of His people. He is releasing dreams and pictures of destiny to fuel faith and unlock potential.

I am calling My church forth to ‘dream with Me’ – to move higher and allow Me to write My exploits upon their hearts.  I have great adventures of faith and powerful glory to reveal.”

#1 – A God Dream will seem RISKY.

And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.  Hebrews 11:6

#2 – A God Dream will require God’s INVOLVEMENT.

Now to God who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us. Ephesians 3:20

#3 – A God Dream will CHANGE LIVES.

It’s in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for. Long before we first heard of Christ and got our hopes up, he had his eye on us, and he had designs on us for glorious living, part of the overall purpose He is working out in everything and everyone. Ephesians 1:11-12

Look at the nations and watch— and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told. Habakkuk 1:5-10

I am raising up the Babylonians, that ruthless and impetuous people, who sweep across the whole earth to seize dwellings not their own. They are a feared and dreaded people; they are a law to themselves and promote their own honor. Their horses are swifter than leopards, fiercer than wolves at dusk. Their cavalry gallops headlong; their horsemen come from afar. They fly like an eagle swooping to devour; they all come intent on violence. Their hordes advance like a desert wind and gather prisoners like sand. They mock kings and scoff at rulers. They laugh at all fortified cities; by building earthen ramps they capture them.” 

“I will climb up into my watchtower and I will wait… And I will look to see what the LORD will say. Then the LORD gave me this answer: “Write down what I reveal to you so you can read it with a glance.” Habakkuk 2:1-2 TEV

  1. Withdraw
  2. Wait
  3. Read God’s Word
  4. Write
  5. Review

I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know God better. 

I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people. Ephesians 1:17-18

So the king of Israel set out with the king of Judah and the king of Edom. After a roundabout march of seven days, the army had no more water for themselves or for the animals with them. “What!” exclaimed the king of Israel. “Has the LORD called us three kings together only to hand us over to Moab?” But Jehoshaphat asked, “Is there no prophet of the LORD here, that we may inquire of the LORD through him?” 

An officer of the king of Israel answered, “Elisha son of Shaphat is here. He used to pour water on the hands of Elijah.” Jehoshaphat said, “The word of the LORD is with him.”

Elisha said, “As surely as the LORD Almighty lives, whom I serve, if I did not have respect for the presence of Jehoshaphat king of Judah, I would not look at you or even notice you.” 2 Kings 3:9-14

“But now bring me a harpist.” While the harpist was playing, the hand of the LORD came upon Elisha. 2 Kings 3:15

√  Dreams are birthed in God’s presence.

And he said, “This is what the LORD says: Make this valley full of ditches.” 
2 Kings 3:16

√  Dreams go from inspiration to participation.

For this is what the LORD says: You will see neither wind nor rain… 

…yet this valley will be filled with water, and you, your cattle and your other animals will drink. This is an easy thing in the eyes of the LORD; he will also hand Moab over to you. 

2 Kings 3:17-18

√  Dreams continue regardless of
 what is seen.
