How to ensure success in 2014: Believe in God (Part 5)

Daily Thought

Your Word for 12 July 2024

Genesis 17:1
When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the LORD appeared to him and said, ‘I am God Almighty; walk before Me faithfully and be blameless.’

Keys to successThis is just one more of those areas in which we need to believe God. Many people battle because of unrealized dreams. Death of a dream is one of the greatest hurdles to cross.
Again Joseph is a prime example. Joseph had dramatic dreams that gave him great problems. From the moment he had the dreams things seemed to go wrong. In fact they went from bad to worse and then still that was only the beginning of the battles he had to face. However, he kept the dream alive in his heart even though there was no reason to believe God or the dream that he had been given. The end result was that the dreams came true and became a reality.
I once read a quote that said: ‘THE FUTURE BELONGS TO THOSE WHO BELIEVE IN THE BEAUTY OF THEIR DREAMS’. Your dreams are something special. They do not guarantee that things will go smoothly, but they give us something to focus on, on the way there! Don’t let go of the dreams that God has placed in your heart. Hold onto those dreams and continue to believe God!
