Summary: Here is a sermon encouraging the believer to go after the dream that God has placed in your heart.
Daring to Dream
Today I would like to look at the process of a dreamer.
Somebody say Process…
I want to get you to dream, because someone is waiting to be blessed and healed on the other side of your dream.
Josephs dream not only impacted him, but it also impacted his whole family.
Joseph had a dream, but the dream did not come to pass overnight, there was a process.
Tell your neighbor Process…
What is the definition of Process?
Process: A systematic series of actions directed to some end.
Did you know that the process that a product goes through can determine the quality of that product.
When it comes to Food, Cars, Gold, clothes, and even leaders.
The name on the product doesn’t determine the quality of the product, but it represents the process that product has gone through and the material inside that product.
The name on a phone doesn't determine the quality of that product, but it represents the material and process of which that phone was taken through.
The name on a car doesn’t determine the quality of that product, but it represents the material and the process of which that car was taken through.
The name on a suit doesn’t determine the quality of the product, but it represent the material and the process of which that suit was taken through.
All the name does is confirm to you the quality of the material inside the product and the process the product went through.
I can take an Apple sticker and put it on a regular cell phone, does that give it quality?
I can take a Hugo Boss tag and put it on my suit, does that give it quality?
I can take a Mercedes emblem and put it on a toyota does that give it Mercedes quality?
It is not the name on the product that makes it quality, but the material and the process the product has gone through.
Joseph went through a process to become the man of God he was and also to see his dream come to pass.
See most of us at one time or another have had a dream to do something big for God, but what can happen is our dream can be put to sleep or die in the midst of the process.
Believe it or not, all of us are going through a process.
What can happen is we can let the process steal our dream.
This morning I have come for those that are here and we have let the process steal our dream.
At one time we were dreaming big for God.
At one time we were on fire for The Lord.
At one time we were believing God to use our lives to do big things, but now somehow the process has stolen our dream.
Maybe your dream has not been stolen, but maybe it is sleeping.
Today I have come to wake up some dreams that have fallen asleep.
I've come for those Elijah’s who feel like your dream is in a cave.
I've come for those Gideon’s who may have been bullied of your dream.
I've come for those who have given up on your dream and didn’t’ even know it.
Tell your neighbor “I am getting my Dream back…”
I have come by to encourage someone to get that dream back and go for all that God has for you.
Take a risk… - Stir it up!!! - Go for all God has for you… - Now is the time...
Behold the turtle. He makes progress only when he sticks his neck out.
Think about it what was the dream that you had when you first started serving God?
Has that dream become watered down?
Has that dream become dormant?
Has that dream been compromised?
Has that dream been put in a cave?
I have stopped by to encourage you and I don’t let the process steal your dream.
See a lot of times if the Enemy can't steal your dream, then the Enemy will put your dream to sleep.
He will put your dream in a choke hold and try and get it to tap out.
What do I mean by put it to sleep?
Well deep down inside you haven't given up on your dream, but you are not pursuing it either.
You will be surprised how many people actually still come to Church, but have given up on their purpose and dreams.
You will be surprised of – how many people shout, dance, and even get involved in ministry, but have given up on pursuing the call of God upon their life.
Tell your neighbor - Don’t let the Enemy put your dream to sleep…
Its ok to dream as a leader, its ok to dream as a journey group leader, its ok to dream as a business owner, its ok to dream as a college student, and its ok to dream as an individual.
