Topic — Dream: A Motivator Name [Teens Open Heavens 8, June 2018]
Memorise: Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. 1 Thessalonians 5:21
Read: Genesis 37:23-24 (KJV)
Bible In One Year: 2 Chronicles 26-28, John 17
MESSAGE:
If you study the story of Joseph, you will observe that he was greatly motivated by his childhood dream. And he stuck with it throughout his travails until it came to pass. Never allow anyone or anything to separate you from your Heaven-sent dream. Do you already see yourself as a minister of God? Do you see yourself as a renowned doctor? Do you see yourself as a blessed, upright man/woman of the community? As long as you are sure it is from the Lord, hold on tightly to that dream.
Once you give up the dream, you may have nothing else to live for. When Joseph was thrown into a pit, he knew he would not die, hence he had the will power and drive to press on. He went through several problems and formidable hindrances, yet he held on fast to what the Lord had shown him. Has God give you a dream? Hold fast to it and work hard, it will come to pass.
Key Point: Your life’s dream is a powerful weapon against death, discouragement and the devil: use it well.
Hymn 1
1. My faith looks up to Thee,
Thou Lamb of Calvary,
Saviour divine!
Now hear me while I pray,
Take all my guilt away,
Oh, let me from this day
Be wholly Thine!
2. May Thy rich grace impart
Strength to my fainting heart,
My zeal inspire!
As Thou hast died for me,
Oh, may my love to Thee
Pure, warm, and changeless be,
A living fire !
3. While life’s dark maze I tread,
And griefs around me spread,
Be Thou my guide;
Bid darkness turn to day,
Wipe sorrow’s tears away,
Nor let me ever stray
From Thee aside.
4. When ends life’s transient dream,
When death’s cold, sullen stream
Shall o’er me roll;
Blest Saviour, then in love,
Fear and distrust remove;
Oh, bear me safe above,
A ransomed soul!
