3. Don’t give up on your dreams.
Or, as they say in the classic film “Galaxy Quest” “Never Give Up Never Surrender!”
You don’t lose until you quit. Your breakthrough could be moments away. Keep looking up, keep trusting God and when your circumstances overwhelm you, and it all looks impossible. Simply change your perspective and look at it through God’s eyes.
Ephesians 2:6 encourages us that we are seated with Christ in Heavenly places. Notice it says, “are seated” not “will be seated.” When we’re seated at that altitude, we can have access to the big picture that helps us see beyond the immediate obstacles to the glorious potential.
Seeing it through from God’s perspective helps you keep your heart right. When we see things from God’s perspective it changes everything.
After 23 years, Joseph’s dream came to pass just as he had seen it at 17 years of age. When the famine forced his family to come to Egypt in search of food, they bowed low before Egypt’s great ruler . . . Joseph – just like in his dream. In Chapter 45 Joseph reveals his identity to his brothers. In this passage, he also reveals his heart of forgiveness, and his right perspective – God’s. Having God’s perspective caused him to trust in God and believe beyond circumstance which protected him from bitterness, and unforgiveness.
So Joseph didn’t let his past determine his future, made others successful, and he never gave up. Joseph saved Egypt, he saved his people, and he changed the world.
Take a pointer from one of the greatest heroes who ever lived, Joseph. Never ever stop dreaming no matter what, the world needs your dream!
