If you could do one thing for the rest of your life what would that be? Many of us have a dream, but we fail to notice that we must act on that dream. Our conversations take on a whole new excitement when we talk about our dreams but in reality, we are not acting on them. Why? What excuses have you given yourself that stops you from truly living and breathing in your dream? Take some time and think about that.
Life can cause us to stop dreaming and when that happens we become complacent, sitting in the dugout of our own game. Watching all of the other players running around each base, sliding in and stepping over obstacles. Getting to home plate at all cost is the goal. You can do that too. Look at the little notches on the shoes of a field game player, they are there to help keep a players footing while running in the field. After each run, they win some and they also lose some, but notice that they don’t stop playing in the game. Get up and do one thing that will get you closer to your dream. It does not have to be a big move unless you refuse to loose. It can be as simple as writing out your short term and long term goals. It could be organizing a closet or box of papers. It could be reading a book about your goal, better yet reading about creating a business plan, every business, dream needs a business plan.
If we look at the men and woman in the Bible, you will see that many of them had a dream, a goal and they each worked it in faith. We are told that faith without works is dead, what does that mean? Let’s look at Hebrews 11:1 in the NLT – What is faith? It is the confident assurance that what we hope for is going to happen. It is the evidence of things we cannot seen. Move on down to Hebrews 11:6, So you see, it is impossible to please God without Faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that there is a god and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him. You see, you can rest assured that your faith, your action faith, your determined faith, will activate the Holy Spirit to intercede for you.
I encourage you today to step back and look at your dreams. Your dreams and you are needed to do that which God has giving you to do in building the kingdom of God. Your gifts will come to fruition if you take that step of action faith. You can run the race. Don’t you agree? Lace up your running shoes and take action.
