Your thoughts are for Dreaming

Romans 8:31 (NLT)

What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us?

You should start dreaming because you have PEACE knowing that God is for you and not against you. He wants you to dream big.

Once your thoughts align with God’s truth, the sky is the limit! But if our thoughts are limited to what seems possible, we aren’t dreaming. You should dream so big that your dreams will never come true unless God was involved.

Christians should dream impossible dreams. You can’t think of something that CAN’T happen. If you can think of it, then it can happen. Live your life in possibility, not probability. Change the way you think!

The Bible is filled with dreamers. People who were nobodies. People who had no business thinking their life could be more than what it was, but with God, they accomplished more than can be measured. Because they got their thoughts lined up with God’s thoughts.

Paul is such an excellent example of a person who dreamed big. This man had horrible circumstances. He faced persecution, as we’ve never known. He was in prison when he wrote this letter to the church because he had massive dreams to preach the gospel. That was his goal in life to preach the gospel.

This is what he said:

Philippians 1:12 (CEV)

12 My dear friends, I want you to know that what has happened to me has helped to spread the good news.

He was happy even in persecution because it was fulfilling the dream of spreading the gospel. You can be content in difficult times if you are thinking noble thoughts that line up with the will of God. You can have peace during trial or persecution.

Here he is again:

Philippians 1:21 CEV

21 If I live, it will be for Christ, and if I die, I will gain even more.

His dream was to live a life for Christ. Is there any bigger dream? We have goals of comfort, lovely homes, cars, health, and many other earthly-focused plans, but what about a life lived for Christ?

Our dreams should be focused on living for Christ. It’s the only thing that will last for eternity.

Can we say what Paul says?

Philippians 2:17 (NLT)

17 But I will rejoice even if I lose my life, pouring it out like a liquid offering to God, just like your faithful service is an offering to God. And I want all of you to share that joy.

His circumstances didn’t change his dream because his dream went beyond his circumstance.

It's time to get your mind on what matters.; thoughts include the gospel. It’s the best thing we can think about in our daily lives. It’s what matters the most. It’s the noblest thought you can have.

Matthew 6:33 (CEV)

33 But more than anything else, put God’s work first and do what he wants. Then the other things will be yours as well.

This is how you walk in your dreams, by putting God's work first in your life. God will do great and mighty things through you if your thoughts are focused on His work.

When you dream about the future, you need to remember something important: You can’t plan the future. James 4:14 tells us that this life is like a mist. It’s only temporary.

People get so disappointed when things don’t turn out as they planned. They only thing you can truly plan is the future YOU. Focus your thoughts on your character. Your character is changed when you change what you are thinking about.

You’ll never accomplish your dreams if you don’t make a plan to achieve something IN you.

It all starts by keeping your mind on things that are noble or worthy. We need to stop wasting our time thinking about things that aren’t worthy. What dream has God placed in you? You can’t plan how it will happen, but you can focus on what you’re thinking while God is working out the details.

Philippians 4:8 (NKJV)

8 Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.
