DREAMS & VISIONS, “WORTH CONSIDERING” 7/18/19, (Across my desk this morning.)
His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life…”(2 Peter 1:3, NIV)
It is Finished
It’s easy to get stuck in life thinking you’ve reached your limits. But God wouldn’t have given you a dream without giving you the ability to accomplish it. You have everything you need. Many times the problem is that it’s buried inside. It’s hidden treasure. You have gifts and talents that you’ve not tapped into yet. There is potential that is waiting to be released. When God laid out the plan for your life, He deposited in you the skill, the wisdom, the creativity; everything you need to fulfill your destiny. Now here’s the key: it’s not what you have in you that matters; it’s what you get out. If you’re going to reach your highest potential, you have to tap into that hidden treasure. Now the challenge is, “don’t die with the treasure still on the inside.” You have something to offer this world that nobody else can offer. You are unique, one of a kind. You are anointed to be you. Be confident in who God made you to be, knowing that you have what it takes to step into the fullness of your destiny.
A Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You for Your faithfulness in my life. I thank You that You will complete what You’ve started in my life. Today I choose to put my trust in You knowing that a shift is coming. I declare that Your will be done in every area of my life in Jesus’ name! Amen!”
The first thoughts that come to mind go back to Proverbs: 18 Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he. In other words, our vision or lack of vision controls our action but four vision also must include the Truth of God, for us, as found in the New Testament.
When I was a kid in school in the 1st grade I found that I was rather good looking and that the girls were very interested. I made friends with two twin blond curly haired girls that were beautiful and remember walking around at recess holding hands with both. Their boy admirers took offense and beat me up. And then, worse, all the kids began to call me “cannot” rather that Kenneth. That drastically effected my feelings about myself and rather turned me into an introvert. We have all had situations like that. I even see it in marriages today where one spouse tries to keep the other in tow and under control with condemnation. Never a positive word less they should get out from under control and become dangerous to the status quo.
But the LORD is not like that. His vision for us to to help us to become like Jesus. The word is “like” not the “same as.” We are all unique and designed for different purposes. If we find out from the HOLY SPIRIT what we were designed for and get HIS vision firmly in our heart, we will be happy campers. And if we find the right life partner with the same vision it makes us 5 times stronger than only being by ourselves.
So how do we get to where our vision is alive and from God from where we are now. It is simple, it is through child like humility and obedience in ingesting the Word of God and allowing the authority that GOD has blessed to assist us. Godly authority truly watches for our souls to be found in Christ Jesus and connected to HIM. God Authority is into Kingdom Building and not Empire Building. It is simple but not easy. Our Adamic nature does not die easily. It take a good strong vision from God and the power of the Holy Spirit to be able to take our Adamic lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes and pride of life and throw them into a casket and nail the lid shut. Of course, in the resurrection, this Adamic nature will finally and totally be separated from us to never rule over us again, ever. Romans 6 – 8 … But for our life time, it is a daily battle and an exercise of our freewill. And only with a strong vision for HIS KINGDOM come, can we make it. “What does not kill you, only makes you stronger.” The Church that is finally “Raptured” will be powerful. Rev. 12:11…. and a perfect match for Christ Jesus as LORD.
Yours, in HIS great love and wonderful grace and mercy, Ken<><
