It's Time to Feel Hope in Your Dreams!
May 25, 2017
I have been hearing God say that dreams that have appeared dead are coming back to LIFE! He is going to breathe NEW LIFE into them.
I was immediately taken back to a vision I had several months back. In this vision, I was inside an old movie theater. I could see the movie screen and an old movie projector that used reel films.
On the screen I could see a fuzzy pixelated picture and it was on a countdown. 5 ..... 4 ..... 3 ..... 2 ..... 1 ..... GO!
Then on the screen, a movie began to play clearly of the DREAMS that God has for us! Then I was in another scene where I found myself in a dimly lit room with a huge library of old reel films. God showed me that these were dreams that He had implanted in the hearts of His people, but they had been forgotten and appeared lifeless. And I saw that these dreams were being taken off the shelves, being dusted off, and placed on the movie projector. God was taking each of these lifeless reel films from a time of decay and disuse on these old dusty shelves and bringing them each into REALITY (bringing them into existence) to be projected into the natural realm.
The Lord has showed me that there are many who have dreams that appear lifeless right now. At one time you might have been confident in those dreams, but as time passed you began to wonder if the fulfillment of those dreams you envisioned would ever become a REALITY. You have become discouraged and upset with God! Defeat has set in! And HOPE has been lost as you have become fixated on what appears HOPELESS!
In the biblical story of Lazarus (John 11:1-44), that situation looked HOPELESS too! Lazarus had been dead in the tomb for four days. His loved ones were mourning his loss and Jesus had delayed in coming to the tomb. It was likely that Lazarus had already begun to decay and it appeared at that point that there was nothing Jesus could do. But, Jesus spoke and NEW LIFE was breathed into Lazarus and he came forth out of the tomb.
Like the "dry bones" in Ezekiel 37, that situation appeared HOPELESS also! It says in Ezekiel 37:2 that the bones were very very dry. There appeared to be no HOPE for life. But the Lord commanded that Ezekiel speak a prophetic message over the bones, and as he did it says "So I prophesied, just as He commanded me. The breath entered them and they came alive!" (Ezekiel 37:10 MSG)
Just like Lazarus and the dry bones, NEW LIFE can be breathed into those dreams! What might appear hopeless and dead to you is POSSIBLE with God. God specializes in the IMPOSSIBLE! (see Luke 18:27.) And He is God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did (see Romans 4:17).
I felt the Lord telling me that there are many who need to come back into agreement with Him for those dreams that appear lifeless and all HOPE has been lost. The enemy has tried to keep you distracted with focusing on the HOPELESSNESS of those dreams. But, He says to turn your FOCUS back onto Him.
He needs you to ALIGN your heart with His Will and position yourself for those dreams to be DISPLAYED in the natural for His GLORY!
And as you do, keep yourself plugged into His Life Source and begin to speak Scriptures of LIFE into those dreams again! Begin to call them forth! His Word has the ability to permeate NEW LIFE into that which appears dead.
He is ready to flick the switch and TURN ON the reel for those who will say YES and give permission for His Spirit to control the projector! As the reel turns and each frame of those dreams move from one place on the reel to the next and are projected into the natural at the EXACT moment that God intends.
So, LET GO of HOPELESSNESS! Surrender it all to Him. Draw close to Him with complete TRUST and FAITH. And respond by saying, "YES!"
Now watch as those dead dreams begin to COME ALIVE!
