Where is the Dreamer (the Kid) in you?
Free to Share
Introduction: Nothing will ever start happening until you start dreaming. Every accomplishment, every ministry, and every achievement started off first as an idea, as an image or picture, as a dream, as a vision and as a goal in your heart & mind. I challenge you today to dream get dreams for God and from God. God uses the child who has a dream!
Where is the Dreamer in you?
Ephesians 3:20 "God is able to do far more than anything we would ever dare to ask or even dream of, infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts or hopes." (Living Bible)
Base Scripture: Acts 2:17
References: Psalm 37:3-5, Job 33:14-16, 1 Chronicles 29:18, Proverbs 4:23,
Romans 12:2, Proverbs 29:18, Matthew 14:14-32, Ephesians 3:20
1) Find the Kid in you:
Do you remember when you were a kid playing make believe or playing in the rain or maybe in the snow, splashing in puddles while running in the rain or making snowmen or having snowball fights? Do you remember those times? Remember how the snow was so cold yet you didn’t care much about the cold. You were just having a blast playing in the snow or just running in the cool refreshing rain and it didn’t bother you.
But somehow as you got older you lost something you lost that kid in you, that little boy in you, and the rain or the snow it seemed bad, gray and even dreary or depressing. Why is that?
I mean God created the rain to be life giving. You know I have been learning something from God – and I learned that when you are facing a storm of problems, or adversity seems to be pouring down heavy on you like that rain, I am learning that all God wants you to do is to find the Kid in you, because that little boy in you saw things differently, you once enjoyed life to the fullest even when it was raining outside. When to everyone else the rain seemed awful but to you it seemed like fun.
It’s gonna be during these adverse times where God himself will teach you something new about you, the man and the child in you. So I encourage you next time when you just feel like everything is crashing down on you, stop, find the kid in you, and go outside and jump around like a kid in the water. In other words live free…there are times when my wife and I don’t want to deal with the tough times of life, so what do we do: we both act like kids. I don’t take myself seriously anymore and neither does she and we get the kids involved and have a great time…and then God shows me as I am more open to him the answer to my problems.
The point is to take some time off away from stress, certain people, things, ministry, and places. Jesus constantly withdrew away from the crowds, why, to fill up on God’s dreams, visions, his love, life, more importantly Jesus filled up on being a Kid with his Father. That was Jesus’ time in finding the Kid in him. So where is the dreamer in you? You must find the Kid in you first.
2) Awaken the Dreamer in You: ( Acts 2:17, Ephesians 3:20)
I believe with all my heart God is calling you to be his dreamers, he is calling you to be his children who dare to dream. God is the biggest dreamer of them all. Think about it, he had a dream one day to create a perfect universe, a perfect world filled with animals, trees, mountains, rivers, seas and people to reflect his glory. Now it’s going to take two kinds of people to believe this story: a dreamer or a crazy lunatic. To believe that an invisible God created something out of nothing! Lets face it most of the world already believes that you and I are a bunch of crazy Looney bins. So I’m choosing to side on God with this one and believe that I am dreamer created just like him. And God is commanding me to speak to the dreamer in you. To speak to the little boy, the kid in you so He can awaken the dreamer in you.
I believe that I am an ordinary man with a God-given great dream living inside of me – living inside the kid in me. And you too must commit to the great dream God has given you because he is speaking to the boy in you, the dreamer in you…The Bible says you must come to him as children…for these are the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. You want to be great…then it’s going to require for you to reawaken the little boy in you and start dreaming. You are a Dreamer of the impossible…You are God’s Dreamer! Where’s the dreamer in you? Find the kid in you and awaken the dreams and dreamer in you.
3) Look For God to get His Dream:
How do I get God’s dream, his vision? If it’s truly God who is placing these desires within me, how do I allow him to give me his dreams, his divine imaginations?
God told me Look for me, seek me, find me and in your journey you will see the little child dreamer reawaken in you. And to show me, he took me to two scriptures (Psalm 37:3-5, Matthew 14:14-33)
In doing the impossible it will take your faith in God to bring His dreams, his visions, pictures, and imaginations in your life to reality. The bible says Faith is the substance of things hoped for. What is hope? Hope is the dream, the image, the picture and the vision in side of you which God has given to you through life, Spirit and the Word. The Bible says hope is the anchor of your soul. I want to look a little deeper at hope:
• Hope is the blueprint or the actual image that God’s Word creates in your heart. Hope is that internal plan, dream or desire overflowing within you that your faith will bring to pass.
• “My heart overflows with a beautiful thought (or vision)! ~Psalm 45:1, God gave me this mission statement for Zion’s Creation: Creativity is the overflow of a full heart and mind. We must always be “filling up” on God’s spirit and wisdom… to soak up all that is beautiful. Let our Creativity flow from a character of God’s love.
• Filling up on God, Meditating (imagining/visualizing), contemplating on God’s Word and not only His word but his creation too, these will start to form and create in your spirit the inner image, the vision, the dream, the picture of what God wants you to see and fulfill. You see the language of the mind – are words and ideas, but the language of the heart are dreams, pictures, images, visions, memories, and imagination. And what God does is combine the two (mind and heart) to build your faith and bring to pass the dreams, visions, and the divine images he has given you to hope for.
• God has given you a godly imagination so that you can allow the Holy Spirit…who is the Spirit of Creativity…to paint God’s image, vision and dream on the canvas of your heart and soul. So that out of your heart will flow the good treasures of a good man…the dreamer in you!
Where’s the dreamer in you? Find the kid in you, awaken the dreams in you, and look for God to get the dreams.
4) Slow Down & Watch to See:
You know life is filled with many challenges, pain and adversity and sometimes finding God is a little difficult. Sometimes it will take God himself to slow you down, just so you can pay attention and watch to see what he has to say. He may even flat out stop you just to simply make you see what he is up to. Rick Warren one time said, God will speak to you through your pain. I don’t know about you but I prefer God using some other ways to speak to me than through my pains. But the point is to slow down, be still enough to see where and what God is doing in your life. He showed me this point in Job 33:13-18.
Where is the dreamer in you?
• Find the kid in you
• Allow God to awaken the dreams/dreamer in you (surrendering your desires to him)
• Look for God for His dreams
• Slow down & watch God work in you
YOUR GODLY IMAGINATION/DREAMS INFLUENCES YOUR ASPIRATION
In other words, your godly dreams, visions, inner images/pictures determine your destiny.
To accomplish anything, you must first have a dream, a vision, a hope, a goal, an image and a mission.
"Without a vision the people (you will die) perish." (Proverbs 29:18)
So Rise UP & DREAM!
