Do you want your dreams to come to pass? Then create an atmosphere of faith and associate with the right people. Don't talk your dreams to non-dreamers. Don't ever give up on your dream.

God declared something about Abraham when in the natural realm he was not this at all. God called Abraham "Father" before he actually became a father. In other words, God was calling things that were not as though they were.

God said, "You'll be a father!" And as far as God was concerned, that settled it. "I don't care if your wife is barren, and you're 100 years old, I said you'll have a child. I said your descendants will be as the stars in the sky and the sands on the sea. So, I'll call you father until you actually become a father."

Did you know that right now God is calling you something different than what others are calling you? God's calling you a champion. God's calling you more than a conqueror. God's calling you a world overcomer. I don't care if you're at the end of your rope. I don't care if, in the natural, there's nothing working for you. That's not the way God's looking at you.

I remember when I first came to the Lord, I said, "What could You possibly do with me? I'm a failure." He said, "Don't worry about it. I'm a master at making champions out of failures." That settled it for me. With one word, God can make something out of nothing. Do you know what that tells me? It's time to get into fellowship with God and hear that one word that will change your life.

When everything was hopeless, Abraham believed anyway. He decided not to live on the basis of what he knew he couldn't do, but rather on the basis of what God said he would do.

When God calls for something in the spirit realm, not yet seen in the natural realm, the word call takes on the meaning of a summons. In a court of law, someone may be summoned to appear in court.

That means they received a call or a letter to appear in court in order to testify as to what they know or what they have seen. You know as well as I do that once a summons has been issued, if you don't obey, you could be legally penalized. Well, when God calls for something, a summons has been released and now the thing summoned for must appear in the natural. Whatever God has put in your heart, then you must call for it.

Start calling for those finances! Call for health. Call for that family member to be saved. It may not exist now, but you're calling for nonexistent things as if they do exist. You have an image of it. It's real on the inside of you and it was birthed there from the promises of God. First the call, then the summons and now the thing you called for has "a divine appointment" with you. That's how the spirit of faith works.

Once I call for whatever I'm believing God for, a summons has been issued, and it must appear. No demon in hell can stop it. The only person who can stop this from happening is me. How? By getting weary, giving up and aborting the dream. So, wait earnestly for it. It doesn't make any difference how long it takes. The name of the game is to win.

So, do you want your dreams to come to pass? Then create an atmosphere of faith and associate with the right people. Don't talk your dreams to non-dreamers. Don't ever give up on your dream. No matter how long it takes, no matter what kind of obstacles or barriers you may be facing - don't give up!

Sow into the dreams of others, and God will bring others to sow into your dreams. Pursue your dreams with everything in you. Call for your dreams. Expect your dreams to become a reality and continually watch for them because they will come to pass!

If God put this dream in your heart, then it's worth waiting for. You'll never regret waiting for your dream.
