The magic of adding faith to your dreams
Faith is vital to accomplishing your dreams.
If you don’t believe you can conquer your dreams, will you even pursue them? Will you fight the obstacles that come your way if you believe you dreams won’t ever happen? The answer to those two questions is a no.
But faith is believing for something even when it’s not here yet, it’s hanging on tight because your vision is greater than your current circumstances. It’s trusting God’s promises even though it feels like the world is against you.
In the Amplified version, this is how faith is described “Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the evidence of things not seen [the conviction of their reality—faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses].” HEBREWS 11:1
Faith comprehends as FACT what cannot be experienced by the physical senses. Are your dreams just wishes or are they facts? They may not be here yet but do you believe they’re coming, do you live as if they were here already?
Faith has played the biggest role in my journey towards my dreams, and it can help you in your journey if you apply the following in your life:
Before you take action, believe that your dreams will come to pass. Believe what God says about you and your situation. I literally envision me accomplishing my goals, I talk as though my goals have come to pass, I believe what God says about me no matter what my circumstances look like. Before we were ever out of debt I declared daily that we were enjoying a debt free life! While I worked minimum wage at a daycare, I would drive by and say out loud that I was a full time teller at HAPO (which happened!) What you believe you will receive! What are you believing for and calling a fact?
2. Take Action
You can believe all you want, but if you aren’t planning and taking the necessary steps to make your dreams a reality then they will not happen. God is not a genie in a bottle, but He is a mountain mover - And He uses us to make those mountains move! Mountains aren’t moved sitting on the couch, they’re moved when we move.
3. Trust the process
Trusting the process is when you’re taking action and waiting it out. It’s not quitting, not giving up, it’s hanging tight knowing that God will come through! It’s knowing that your hard work will produce the fruit you desire. It’s trusting that the long nights and early mornings are worth it, that you’ll be rewarded for the sacrifices you made now.
It’s not easy going after your dreams. It’s really really hard! But when you believe by faith that they will come to pass then you better hang on because they’re on the way, they aren’t slow in coming as God says!
