THE IMPOSSIBLE DREAM?-PART ONE-DARE TO DREAM-84a
The Impossible Dream
To dream the impossible dream
To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow
To run where the brave dare not go.
The Impossible Dream was written by Mitch Leigh and Joe Darion
MARK 9:23 (ESV)
“All things are possible for one who believes.”
Proverbs 29:18 (KJV)
Where there is no vision, the people perish
So, what is your dream? What is your vision?
I believe this is one of the most important messages that I have ever preached. If you don't have a personal dream or vision then you a dead man or woman walking already. You are just killing time. Don't settle for that!
· So, What drives you?
· Is your dream just the American Dream of Prosperity or is it something more than that?
· Don’t settle for less than God’s plan (Raising the Dead/Healing the Sick/Cleansing the Leper)
· It seems like we will do everything except the heart of the Great Commission-We don’t heal the sick or witness or drive out demons. We just talk about it.
· That is why Jesus said the laborers are few (pray for Laborers)
One thing is true that you can’t measure the heart of the person! So, how bad do you want it???
So, people have said things about you? You’ll never amount to anything. You just don’t have what it takes?
Or like me they didn’t need to: I always believed that my life wouldn’t amount to anything. I was a nothing.
Well they also said that about these people:
· -Too short to be an NFL Quarterback—Doug Flutie/Drew Brees
· -Too sick and dying of a terminal disease to ever be well-I am talking about Annabel Beam and her mom and Dad and sisters, the then 10-year-old girl from well just watch the movie Miracles from Heaven
· -Too Old-Colonel Sanders-Didn’t franchise his first restaurant until age 62
· - Balding and not a very good dancer-Fred Astaire
· -Can they sing(question mark)???-Richard and Adam-two young guys form Wales who worked at a Sandwich Shop- singing “The Impossible Dream” at a try-out for Britain’s got Talent. Guess what those guys will knock your socks off-listen to the video on my blog or FB Promo video.
· Not that good-199 pick in the 6th round drafted in the late round-Tom Brady=probably will be considered the best NFL Quarterback of all times
· Too heavy-Brandon Bullsworth-The greatest college walk-on player in history-watch the movie Greater
· Just good enough to be a grocery stock boy to MVP of the Greatest Show on Turf-Kurt Warner
· A bunch of college hockey players with zero chance to win up against the mighty “better than professional” Russian Hockey team. Do you believe in miracles? In 1980; If you were an American you did as Team USA crushed the Russians and won the Gold Medal. Watch the movie “Miracle on Ice.”
· This is not a dress rehearsal!
· I believed I was too old and my health collapsed the last time during my ten years in hell trail because I believed it.
Don't settle for less than God’s plan
(Raising the Dead/Healing the Sick/Cleansing the Leper) (it seems like we will do everything except the heart of the Great Commission)-That is why Jesus said the laborers are few (pray for Laborers OR (BETTER YET PRAY TO BE ONE)
· Everyone one has the right equipment the ability to get the job done
Romans 12:3 (KJV)
3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
· No respecter of persons
· Don’t you want something bigger than you? Something where you have to rely on God himself to do the miraculous. Something where you know him better than your best friend. Something where you heal the sick and raise the dead.
