The Resurrection of Dead Dreams


Yesterday while I was in a doctor’s office, I overheard a conversation between the receptionist and a patient.  The receptionist handed the patient a lengthy form to fill out and asked her if there were any changes since her last visit.  The patient responded in a discouraged tone of voice saying, I haven’t had any changes in my life for the past ten years except for my age and my deteriorating health.  As I heard that, the Lord gave me this word.

There are many Christians who have grown discouraged because they have been in the same place spiritually for many years.  They have not experienced any spiritual growth or changes in their lives.

The problem is that they are not doing anything to change their situations and they have let go of their dreams.  Their zeal is gone they have abandoned the word of God.  They are no longer hearing the voice of The Holy Spirit because they have become lax and are no longer pressing in.  Jesus wants to resurrect those dreams once again.

The Lord says,

“I AM the resurrection and the life,  I AM the God that raises the dead and restores lost dreams.  Allow Me to resurrect those dreams that have died and revive you once again.

I AM your deliverer, your restorer, your healer, your provider and I will supply all your needs as you spend time with Me.  

Allow Me to remove the blinders from your spiritual eyes so that you could see again.  

Allow Me to remove obstructions from your spiritual ears so that you will hear again.

Allow Me to infuse you with new insight.  Don’t entertain thoughts of defeat any longer, but come to Me with expectancy.

Allow Me to fill every barren area of your life, and listen for My still small voice to bring resurrection to those dead areas.

Allow Me to restore the joy that you once had in your relationship with Me.  

Don’t allow circumstances to keep you from who you were called to be, and don’t allow people to hinder your relationship with Me.

Don’t allow anything to compromise the Covenant that I have made with you.

I have made everything available that you need to succeed in your personal life as well as your spiritual life.  As you spend time with Me, you will discover how to hear My voice.  As you connect with Me once again, your life will have new meaning and you will be inspired with new vision.

Never settle for anything less than the plans that I have for you.

Don’t allow burdens to weigh you down but take My yolk which is easy and My burden which is light.

Don’t be afraid to trust Me with your whole heart because as you hunger for more, your desires will be met.  Stir yourself up and don’t allow the pressures of the world to weigh you down or pull you back.

Don’t limit Me, as there are no limits with what I can do with your life.  As you redirect your thought life to the truth of My word you will receive clarity of mind.

Don’t allow anything to annihilate your zeal for Me.  As you rekindle that fire, watch how My anointing will resurrect everything that pertains to your life and ministry,”

says the Lord.

“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For My yoke is easy and My burden is light,”   Matthew 11:28-30.

“Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.  Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer,”   Romans 12:11-12.

“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might,”  Ephesians 6:10.

“Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue,”   2 Peter 1:2-3.
