Proverbs 29:18 NKJ
Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint…
Philippians 3:12-14 NKJ
Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press
on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid
hold of me. Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but
one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching
forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for
the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
Five Kinds of Dreamers:

  1. Non-Dreamers: people who live day-to-day with no thought about
    their future
  2. Empty Dreamers: people who live in a dream world without ever
    acting
  3. Average Dreamers: people who dream small and settle for average
  4. Dream Abandoners: people who charge out toward their dreams
    but abandon them when it gets tough
  5. Dream Achievers: people who have the qualities to turn their
    DREAMS INTO REALITY

Process of Turning Dreams into Reality:

  1. Believe that if God calls you He will equip you.
    1 Corinthians 1:26-29 NKJ
    For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to
    the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called. But God has
    chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and
    God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the
    things which are mighty; and the base things of the world and the
    things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are
    not, to bring to nothing the things that are, that no flesh should glory
    in His presence.
  2. Decide to be faithful in everything God gives you to do.
    Luke 16:10-12 NKJ
    “He who is faithful in what is least is faithful also in much; and he who
    is unjust in what is least is unjust also in much. Therefore if you have
    not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your
    trust the true riches? And if you have not been faithful in what is
    another man’s, who will give you what is your own?”
  3. Develop a strategy for your dream.
    Proverbs 16:3 NKJ
    Commit your works to the Lord, and your thoughts will be established

Seven Questions to Answer:

  1. Who am I? (Core values)
  2. Why am I? (Purpose)
  3. What am I supposed to do? (Mission)
  4. What’s going on out there? (Environment)
    “Every few hundred years throughout Western history, a sharp
    transformation has occurred. In a matter of decades, society
    altogether rearranges itself—its worldview, its basic values, its social
    and political structures, its arts, its key institutions. Fifty years later a
    new world exists. And the people born into that world cannot even
    imagine the world in which grandparents lived and into which their
    own parents were born.” – Peter Drucker
  5. What am I called to change? (Impact)
  6. What obstacles will I have to deal with? (Challenge)
  7. How will I do it? (Strategy)
  1. Live with a high-risk capacity.
    “Many people believe that you are really walking by faith when there
    is no risk, but the truth is the longer you walk with God…the greater
    the risk!” – Tommy Barnett
    Hebrews 11:6 NKJ
    But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to
    God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who
    diligently seek Him.
