DREAMS Flashed Before My Eyes - Outline

on on . .

Here is the teaching outline for SUNDAY NITE LIVE.  Join us at 6 PM EST.

First, do you expect your dreams come true?

Second, do you have a plan on what to do when they manifest?

Are you dreams about success. . .wealth. . .or doing things for others?

Genesis 1:27 AMPC

“So God created man in His own image, in the image and likeness of God He created him; male and female He created them.”

Matthew 6:33 NLT

“Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.”

Here are three things that can keep your dreams from coming to pass..

First, feelings of worthlessness.

Feelings of worthlessness are reinforced by the words of our mouths.

“I don’t have what it takes to make this dream come true.

“I’ve never done anything like this before.

“I tried once before and I failed. . .I’ll just fail again. . .so what’s the use?

Philippians 4:13 AMPC

“I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who [a]infuses inner strength into me; I am [b]self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency].”

Second, believing the worst.

Smith Wigglesworth said:

“Why believe newspapers where you get half the truth when you can read the Word of God and get the whole truth.”

Third, don’t dwell on your circumstances.

I heard someone once say:

“There is not such things as a hopeless situation, but people can grow hopeless about situations.”

Fourth, yielding to depression.

“Gloom, despair, and agony on me, deep dark depression and excessive misery.  If it weren’t for bad luck, I’d have no luck at all. Gloom, despair, and agony on me”

Philippians 4:6 AMPC

Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God.

Psalm 94:18 AMPC

“In the multitude of my [anxious] thoughts within me, Your comforts cheer and delight my soul!”

Here are six ways to overcome a mind burdened down by circumstances.

First, believe you are a person of worth.

Listen to this statement very carefully.

You can’t believe in others unless you believe in yourself and you can’t really believe in yourself unless you believe in God. 

Proverbs 10:20 AMPC

“The tongues of those who are upright and in right standing with God are as choice silver; the minds of those who are wicked and out of harmony with God are of little value.”

Philippians 1:10 AMPC

“So that you may surely learn to sense what is vital, and approve and prize what is excellent and of real value [recognizing the highest and the best, and distinguishing the moral differences], and that you may be untainted and pure and unerring and blameless [so that with hearts sincere and certain and unsullied, you may approach] the day of Christ [not stumbling nor causing others to stumble].”

Second, start the day with a positive attitude.

Get up with an attitude.

“Today Lord, it’s you and me.  We can and will overcome any circumstance the enemy brings my way.  I think you that today. . .the mind of Christ will function fully and freely within.  I rejoice because today you will be glorified by words and actions.  Hallelujah.”

John 14:27 NLT

“I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.”

John 14:1 AMPC

“Do not let your hearts be troubled (distressed, agitated). You believe in and adhere to and trust in and rely on God; believe in and adhere to and trust in and rely also on Me.”

Philippians 4:13 AMPC

“I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am [b]self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency].”

Philippians 4:19 MSG

“You can be sure that God will take care of everything you need, his generosity exceeding even yours in the glory that pours from Jesus.”

Third, define your dreams.

Colossians 1:11 AMPC

“[We pray] that you may be invigorated and strengthened with all power according to the might of His glory, [to exercise] every kind of endurance and patience (perseverance and forbearance) with joy.”

Fourth, know where you are going.

Fifth, start thinking right.

Proverbs 23:7 KJV

“As a man thinketh in his heart so is he.”

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said:

“Rarely do we find men who willingly engage in hard, solid thinking. There is an almost universal quest for easy answers and half-baked solutions. Nothing pains some people more than having to think.”

Philippians 2:5 NCV

“In your lives you must think and act like Christ Jesus.”

Sixth, keep your eyes on your dream.

1.  What are your dreams?

2.  Are they from God. . .birthed in you by the Holy Spirit?

3.  Are you passionate about your dreams. . .to the point that you’re actively pursuing them.

4.  Have you written your dreams down as it says in Habakkuk 2:2?

5.  Have you created a timeline with the steps you need to take to make your dreams come true?

6.  Do you monitor your progress on your dreams everyday?

7.  Do you have a mentor who can encourage or help make these dreams come true?

Ephesians 3:20 AMPC

 

“Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams].”
