A dream is about development. I’m developing something. All dreams start with God. Did you hear that? All great dreams start with our great God. God is a God who dreams so if you want to live the dream, and that’s what we want to do over the next several weeks, it starts with God. So if I’m going to live the dream, that dream starts with God. God is always developing and depositing and dropping dreams on all of us. We’re going to see in a couple of moments in Genesis chapter 15 there was a guy named Abraham and God just blew the doors off of his life. Abraham thought he was living the dream. If the guy lived today he would be worth several billion. He had all of this stuff and you would think, Abraham, that guy is living the Bill Gates, Michael Dell, Warren Buffet dream. But no, God takes him to a level he never thought possible. God develops the dream. God is developing you for the dream. So you either log onto God’s dream or you don’t. If you don’t, I hate to tell you this, but you’re going to live a nightmare. You’re not going to live the dream; you’ll live a nightmarish existence. It’s all about development.
Dreaming is also about, look at the R, righteousness. It’s a righteous dream. What is righteousness? That’s purity. That’s holiness. We know our God is righteous. God can’t err. God can’t sin; he’s perfect. Well we are sinful. God can’t look at us because of our sin. He sent Jesus to live a perfect life and to die a sacrificial death. Jesus lived a perfectly righteous life. When we receive Jesus his righteousness is imputed into our lives. So we’re righteous and we have this desire for righteousness. God’s dream for all of our lives is to live a righteous life, not a legalistic thing, but based on something that is a relationship within.© Copyright 2012admin, All rights Reserved.
