Stand and Dream
// Kenneth W. Hagin
God has spoken to every one of us at some time in our life. He's given us dreams, visions, and things to accomplish for Him. I want to inspire you to get a new hold on those dreams. Pull them down from the shelf, dust them off, and get moving!
"But I just don't see how it's possible," you may say. "I know God has spoken to me, but I can't do anything."
Remember Joseph? He dreamed that his brothers were bowing to him. Upset about his dream and jealous of his relationship with their father, Joseph's brothers threw him into an empty pit. Then they sold him to a passing caravan bound for Egypt. (See Genesis chapter 37.) I'm sure Joseph thought, "God, what is happening? This is not the way I dreamed it!" Later, when he found himself working as a servant in Egypt and then thrown into prison, he could have said, "Wait
a minute, Lord. You're making a mistake!" However, even though it seemed his dream was shattered, Joseph kept believing God. And years later, his dream came to pass just as God had given it. His brothers bowed before him. (See Gen. 42:1–6.)
Your dreams can come to pass too. When it seems as if the devil has shattered the dream that came to you from God Himself, reach down, pick up those pieces, and continue to drive for success. Dare to believe! Believe in yourself. Believe in what God said for you to do. Take the impossible and turn it into the possible with Him this day. Dream the dream, because the time for victory in your life is now!
