Dream Big and Do Big.

 

“It isn’t a calamity to die with dreams unfulfilled, BUT it is certainly a calamity not to dream.” Benjamin E. Mays- minister, educator, scholar, social activist and the president of Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia from 1940 to 1967 #dreambig #calmitynottodream

 

As we celebrate Black History Month remember -Inventions, financial empowerment, entrepreneurial success, social changes and social justice can be achieved by those of you who make the bold decision to apply your knowledge, your energy and your talent to humanitarian goals. Think of how those we honor today gave to make a difference for others.
If it is encouraging, let him encourage;
if it is contributing to the needs of others,
let him give generously; if it is leadership,
let him govern diligently; if it is showing mercy, let him do it cheerfully. Romans 12:8 NIV

African American Victory of Spirit- Black Quotations- Persevere- Don’t Quit
“You never know which key unlocks the safe” . Bryant Gumbel, former Morning News Host #persevere
Success is achieved by those willing to persevere beyond the point where the majority stop and turn back. Today is your day.
God has given you talents, gifts and His Word. Take another step closer to your goal. Hold fast to the hope, the Word, to “doing” your dream if God put it there. (Hebrews 10:35-39)

Use the gifts and talents God gave you to bless others and to generate wealth. Dream Big . Pray Big. Then begin to take action to accomplish your dream. Write your goals down using the SMART system (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, Timeline) and set dates to accomplish the plan. Make the call. Develop a team. Start. Make the call. Write the book.

Prayer: Thank you Lord for the gifts and talents you have provided me. Let me use them to your glory and to bless others.  Let me not grow weary in preparing, in toiling to create the witty invention, to have entrepreneur success and to develop systems that will provide solutions to the needs of human kind. Give me favor and the wisdom and strength to persevere. In the name of Jesus.

Dream Big and Do Big.

As we honor the legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. ,”the Dream” and reflect on what he achieved that many thought was impossible we know that faith makes things possible.”With God, all things are possible.” -Matthew 19:26. Praise the King of Kings that downloaded “The Dream” into the great dreamer, Dr. King’s heart.

What dreams have God poured into your heart? What do you know that  you need to step out in faith and do. Pray and ask the Lord. Seek His face. Listen. Prayer is a dialogue not a monologue. Then DO what He tells you to do.

Ask.  Seek. Knock. Luke 11:9

Ask the Lord for the vision and His wisdom to achieve the dream He has placed in your heart. We don’t have because we do not ask. James 4:2  Listen and write the vision down.

Seek the Lord through His Word and prayer. Seek help from wise mentors and others. Keep a seeking attitude as you continue to pray.

Knock when your asking and seeking has not brought the answer. When we knock we are trying to get someone’s attention. Preserve in prayer and do not let go of the request. Do not give up. Stay persistent when you know God’s heart on the subject. It took Daniel 21 days of pressing prayer to  receive an answer that was sent on the first day. (Daniel 10)

” For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks , the door will be opened.” ( Luke 11:10)

Keep the dream -the goal- the mission alive.

All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.
Dream Big. Believe. If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.”Matthew 21:22. Pray without ceasing. 1Thess. 5:17 . Do/Act. Faith without works is dead . Walk by Faith. Faith make things possible , not easy. Don’t quit or grow weary.

Be strong and courageous, and act; do not fear nor be discouraged, for the Lord God , my God, is with you. 1 Chronicles 28:20 NASB
