This is the second half to the ‘Dream! It’s your birthright’ series.
1. LIVE DIFFERENTLY: because you have a vision, you know where you’re headed. Embrace and love every situation you’re in because it is God’s will.
Don’t drag your feet through life. Make a decision to enjoy life to the fullest, your current situation is only temporary.
2. SPEAK DIFFERENTLY: Proverbs 18:21 says, “the tongue has the power of life and death”. With the words that come out of our mouths we can “build up” or “tear down”.
Words are very powerful.
In the creation of the universe God spoke certain words (Genesis 1) and they came to pass. He said, “let there be light” and there was light, His words were used to do good – to create the universe, as we know it. The Bible condemns negative talk (Ephesians 4:29); therefore we should use our words to ‘build up’ – to encourage, to complement and to inspire people.
3. GIVE DIFFERENTLY: Give freely! The Bible encourages us to Give! Give! Give! without expecting anything in return (Luke 6:35).
In a world that is filled with selfishness and skeptics, a gratuitous gift is a blessing to the receiver. It goes against the grain of societal culture.
Besides, what do you have to lose? Have you ever heard of a person that has become poor because they give too much?
4. THINK DIFFERENTLY: Proverbs 23:7 says, “For as he thinks in his heart so is he”. Think positively and be hopeful. Be in regular contact with God; fill your mind with His Word and keep a close relationship with Him so you begin to think like Him.
“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things.”(Philippians 4:8)
Dreamer’s Daily Confession:
I am more than a conqueror, I am the head and not the tail, and I am first and not last. I am the city upon a hill that cannot be hidden and I am destined for greatness. I am Father, Lord and Ruler over [insert your desires/aspirations, etc. here]. My light will shine forth and so brightly that others will see your good works and glorify your name. I am your child and I am destined for a purpose and I will fulfill that purpose with your strength.
Thanks for reading and I wish you all a blessed week! 🙂
