DREAMS & VISIONS “WORTH CONSIDERING” 5/14/19 (Across my desk on 5/13/19
“And He who is seated on the throne said, See! I make all things new…”
(Revelation 21:5, AMPC)
He Makes All Things New
When God puts a dream in your heart, when He puts a promise on the inside, He deposits within you everything you need to accomplish that dream. He wouldn’t give you the desire to do something without giving you the ability to fulfill it. In fact, the Scripture tells us that God gives us the desires of our heart. In other words, He puts the desire inside of us and then works with us to bring it to pass. Oftentimes people set out to accomplish their dreams, but they face a setback or disappointment, and then they feel as though their time has passed. But know today that no matter where you’ve come from, no matter what’s happened in your past, God wants to make you new. He wants to give you a “do over,” a fresh start. If you feel like you’ve missed opportunities in your life, if you feel like your time has passed, remember that today is a new day. You are a new person, and God has new opportunities in store for you. If one dream has died, it’s time to dream a new dream. He makes all things new in your life today!
A Prayer for Today
“Father in heaven, thank You for making all things new. I give You this day and invite You to have Your way in every area of my life. I choose to receive all the promises You have in store for me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen”
While it is true that HE who hath began a good work in you will perform it until the day of Christ Jesus, Phil. 1:6, we still must be walking out our dreams and visions in faith. I would rather put it this way that our Creator reveals the Good News dreams and visions to us through His Word and Church as to what HE would like to do with and for us. But then it is up to us to buy into that Dream or Vision with heart faith. It is up to us to seek and receive faith to believe the Gospel and put our heart, feet and hands into it. There is always a place for a new start if we get off the track with repentance and faith. But it is not automatic, 1 John 1:9-10. We are in a partnership with us being the Jr. partner. Jesus put’s it this way, “If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. John 15:7” (Always take note of that little conditional word “IF”) So ” if” we really learn to live in Jesus and know HIS WORDS in our heart, then it works, right? Then our prayers receive what we ask for, John 16:16 and if not the we may need to check James 4:3: Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts. There is absolutely no manipulating GOD to get anything that our flesh might cry out for.
I have met a lot of wonderful Christians but I could count on one hand those who could qualify as to living completely in Jesus and having a heart faith for all HIS WORDS. I am 86 and still working on getting that together myself. And these “Worth Considering” notes are really very good for me. It is like the Holy Spirit shines GOD light way up ahead to give us a vision but we are not really there yet. But we get a vision of where we want to be. So we are working on these dreams and visions together unless you have been hitting the delete button. Sorry to say but most of who I know are not even sure of what the commandments of Christ Jesus are and as yet are far from being found in humility and obedience. In John 17:20-26 our Lord prays for us that we will help each other.
And if you take the time to read Rev. 21 it is the Prophesy of Christ Jesus that happens after the 1,000 year earthly Kingdom of Christ Jesus. It is the Prophesy concerning GOD, The Eternal Father, making a total end of all corruption on earth and making a new heavens and a new earth. HE then gathers HIS forever family together in a totally righteous new Kingdom. You will not want to miss this. The former things and time will be no more.
Yours, in HIS great love and wonderful grace and mercy, Ken<>< www.trinity-aloha.org
