Motivation and Dream
Motivation and Dream Accomplishment
God has created us to be dreamers. He has equipped within us the intelligence, the inner strength, and the will power to accomplish our dreams. In addition, God has given us the promise of His Holy Spirit and His Word that we are somebody and that we can make our dreams a reality. God wants us to prosper in all things and to live a life of greatness. A dream can be a major game changer in your life. You are a perfect example that dreams comes true. Great ideals are thought of, books are written, wealth is made, battles are won, lives are changed and saved by a dreamer who received, understood and acted on the inspiration of a dream. It will take time, patience, motivation, guts and a strong desire to succeed to make your dreams a reality.
Motivation is the power that pushes you, that drive you to fight to the end to accomplish a goal, a dream or even a desire to reach for the impossible. Dreams are a series of thoughts, images, and sensations occurring in our mind during sleep or because of a thought that is born in our minds that is inspired by God, inspired by someone or inspired by our five senses that is telling us that something needs to be changed, improved or invented by us now!
You must be either a self-motivator or motivated by others or motivated by something or motivated by a life changing event that causes you to want to act or to make a change.
So, what motivates you to do what you do? Is it humming the music beats to your favorite song? Is it knowing that at the end of the week it’s TGIF, pay day or schools out for the weekend? Is it going shopping at the Mall with your friends? Is it being handed the keys to a new car, a new home or is it being given the keys to someone’s heart? Is it looking forward to winning the Gold at the end of the Rainbow or is it being the first to cross the finish line at the end of a tough race. What is it that motivates you?
More importantly what motivates you as a Christian? Is it your goal to be a good Christian? Is it your desire to study God Word or is it your desire to serve God’s people in a key position in Christ’s Army? Is it your mission to make lots of money, have a great Christian life, a blessed family or is it something more? Is it your purpose in life to made heaven your home and to hear the Creator say, “Well Done” my faithful servant?
How Does God Motivates Us?
Has it ever crossed your mind that God motivate you too? God motivates through his spoken and written Word, music, dance, by other people, life events and by spiritual dreams. Within these spiritual dreams are something specific that God wants you to do for His Kingdom, for yourself and perhaps the entire world. Not only does God gives us the motivation. He also births within us the knowledge, the wisdom, the spiritual gift(s) and the tools needed to accomplish these dreams. Deuteronomy 8:18, Jeremiah 33:3, Romans 8:37 and Philippians 4:13. Four GREAT reasons to shout “HALLELUIAH, GOD GOTS MY BACK. I AM MORE THAN A CONQUER”, AMEN!
God Wants to Help You
What did God promise in Jeremiah 33.3? He said “Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.” Can I get a toot-toot? Can I get an Amen?
God gives us the Holy Spirit to help guide and direct our path. God gives us ways that we can help advance his kingdom. God gives us instructions on how we can improve our mental, physical and spirit health. God gives us the ability to attain financial wealth and yes, on ways on how to enjoy our Christian life as well. All God wants you to do is to ask, believe and trust in Him and accept the guidance of the Holy Spirit as your guide. Just as important, God wants you to believe in yourself and believe that you can put your plan together to accomplish your dreams.
Something to Think About
I was speaking to a young brother in Christ recently that felt inspired by a dream from God about opening a chain of Christian barbershops. He had an idea, knew his purpose, but when I asked about his plan, he had no vision on how to get this done other than to say, “I’m praying on it”. That is fine, it’s a good start, but not enough. Remember, God wants you to depend on guidance from the Holy Spirit in developing your plan. The fact is this situation may apply to you as well.
How many of you simply do not know what to do upon receiving a spiritual dream or an ideal from God? Are you afraid to take the first step in fulfilling your dreams? Are you the one that gets defeated at the first sign of a set-back? Are you the one that always gets discouraged by someone that is close to you that has doubted or has even sabotaged your past dreams? Listen to me very carefully. What God has for you is for you. It is now time to rebuke that spirit of doubt in the name of Jesus. Amen.
Do you want to hear some good news? It is now your season; it is now your time to get motivated to accomplish your dreams! Listen to this quote from Motivational Speaker Les Brown that talks about the graveyard and buried dreams:
“The graveyard is the richest place on earth, because it is here that you will find all the hopes and dreams that were never fulfilled, the books that were never written, the songs that were never sung, the inventions that were never shared, the cures that were never discovered, all because someone was too afraid to take that first step, keep with the problem, or determined to carry out their dream.”
So, my question to you is this: Is your dreams headed to the graveyard too?
What Are You Going to Do About it Now?
Do you still believe in your dreams and yourself? Do you still believe by faith that there is a very good reason why God has chosen you! And if so, WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT NOW?
It is now time to invest in yourself and your dream. Let us at I AM for Christ ministries be that motivating voice that motivates you to invest and act on your dreams. My definition of motivation is the force behind you that is compelling you to accomplish a goal or a dream. It is also the forces that keeps telling you to get back up when you are knock down. Now, go to the mirror and shout with highest confidence “This is my dream, God chose me, this is my season and I have the promise from God that I can do all things through Christ who strengthen me”. Amen
Every dream and every goal requires directions from the Holy Spirit, plus your desire and vision to succeed, your commitment to finish, your victorious prayer life, your positive goal-setting strategy, your courage and guts to get back up when all hell breaks out and your visual of you accomplishing your dream.
