Marcus Lamb’s Sermon 15, July, 2017 Don’t give up on your dreams

Hab 2:2-3
God has apppointed time for the vision.
It will speak, it will not lie.

What is vision?
A dream, a desire, a destiny.
We must not give up on our dream.

We are pregnant with destiny.
It is about to come true.
God has great things for us.

Pro 29:18
What is our dream?
Promotion? Owning a business?
Health? Family salvation?

Joseph was a great dreamer.
But, his own family betrayed him.
Nevertheless, he did not give up.
He went from pit to Potiphar’s house, to prison, to palace then prime minister.

Perhaps we feel our life is messed up.
Nevertheless, God can qualify the unqualified and the disqualified.

God is sovereign but He gave men free will.
When men (imcluding us) mess up God”s plan A, God will give plan B which is as good or even better than plan A.

1.Winners don’t quit and quitters do not win.

God does not measure success by number
He measures by faithfulness.

2.Take it one day at a time.

God does not show all our future at once.
If He were to do it, we may fear or we may run ahead of God.

When we have vision, we should write it out.
At the same time, we should help others achieve their vision.

3.Your attitude will determine your altitude.

We need to have attitude of passion.
We must be excited about our dream.
God does not use our past to determine our future.

God is the Source.
We achieve our dream  by our own strength.

How do we know our dream is from God?
If it is too big for our own strength, then likely it is from God.
2 reasons:
-God wants us to depend on Him constantly
-God wants all glory. When people see us, they will say, “Only God can do that.”

Zechariah 4:10
We must not despise the small beginning.
We must talk about the greatness of God when we talk about our dream.

4.Be prepared to take risks only when you have a clear word from God.

5.Stand on the word of God.

Numbers 23:19
Ps 37:4-5
Ps 71:1
Ps 91:15
Is 55:11
Jer 29:11
Jer 33:3
Phil 1:6
John 15:7
Rm 4:21
Phil 4:19
1 Pet 5:7

Keep on marching forward in God.
The dream will come to pass.
