Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. (Hebrews 11:1, NKJV)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
Are you expecting your dreams to come true? Its important to look beyond present circumstances and believe for Gods best. Someone battling sickness may say, I could never be healthy. Or, This report from the doctor says too many things are wrong with me. What they dont realize is their lack of faith is holding them back from receiving Gods best. They allow adversities to keep them from moving forward. And thats just what the enemy wants, to keep your dreams from taking root and being fulfilled.
Our God-given dreams are like seeds planted deep within our hearts. For those dreams to grow, they must take root. Having faith for your dream means you believe it on the inside before it takes place on the outside. In other words, youve got to see those dreams coming to pass no matter whats going on around you.
Get a vision on the inside of what God wants for you. He wants you to accomplish the plans Hes put in your heart. Look out through eyes of faith and see your dreams coming to pass. See yourself walking in abundance in every area of life!
A Prayer for Today
Heavenly Father, I know what youve put on the inside of me. By faith I see the dreams youve given me coming to pass, no matter what my circumstances are. I am full of Your power and Im ready to become everything you created me to be. In Jesus Name. Amen.
