Three Dream Thieves That Need Destroyed In Your Life!!
- Fear: Fear is one of the top Dream Killers that I believe we deal with on a daily basis. We have fear of failure. We have fear of comparison . We even have fear of success. So how do I deal with this fear you ask? Well first of all you acknowledge the fear. Once you have taken that step then it is time to deal with the fear.
2 Timothy 1:7
7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.(NKJV) Fear is a real thing but it is an emotion. Emotions can be changed, they can be dealt with and they can even be used to propel you forward. You have acknowledged your fear to yourself, now talk to God about that fear. Build yourself up in His promises. He has some great ones like Jeremiah 29:11 that says He has great plans for you plans to prosper you and not to EVER HARM YOU.. Write down exactly what your fears are and then if they are from lack of knowledge you know you can research and learn about your dream and kill that dream thief. If it is fear of success, ask yourself what it is that you feel you might lose if you are successful. Make a list, then on the other side of that list write down what you will gain if you are successful. If it is fear of failure then remember that failure is only when one stops trying to succeed. We should never compare ourselves to anyone else. So this fear here we need to find out who we are designed to be and walk in His image for us. Then you Rock what you got and Brand your own Brand…Do not ever try to be anyone but you in your dreams and in your everyday life.
Not that we dare to classify or compare ourselves with some of those who are commending themselves. But when they measure themselves by one another and compare themselves with one another, they are without understanding.
- Exhausted: It takes a lot of energy; mentally, physically, and spiritually to keep your dreams on the move. Sometimes we want to just give up. We think that sounds easier. Let me tell you regret drains you way more than pushing forward. It is very important that we take time to rest our minds. Find something that has nothing to do with your dreams or work and learn to enjoy and let your mind just relax. Read a book, go to a coffee house and just sip coffee and watch people. Whatever you do take that time to not think about your goals, needs or failures of the past. Just BE!!! Exercise and eating correctly go a long way with your physical energy. Find what works for you even if it is walking to your mail box everyday. Eat high energy low carb foods and just make one healthy choice a day till you are making lots of healthy choices. When it comes to our spiritual walk we have to take time or the other areas will never make up the difference. The strength we gain from God is what it is all about. He is the Dream Giver and He is the ONE who will sustain the dream.
New King James Version
9 And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. (NKJV)
New King James Version
13 I can do all things through Christ[a] who strengthens me.(NKJV)
- The Company that you keep: Who are you hanging out with? What are they speaking into your life? Did you know that Joseph shared his dreams with his brothers and they despised him for it? They threw him in a pit to die and then decided to make a profit from him and sold him into slavery. Be real careful who you share your dreams with!!! Some will despise you for it and some will even try to profit from your dreams and manipulate it to fit their design not God’s.
Proverbs 12:26 One who is righteous is a guide to his neighbor, but the way of the wicked leads them astray.
