Birthing Your Dream

In order to deliver that dream on the inside in its time, without having to violate the process you must first follow your inner compass rather than your clock. Various tests will come from every angle before the dream is delivered. Some of these tests include the test of time, test of friends etc. All these are tests of your patience and the dream inside you.

The angel told Mary, that the Holy Spirit would come upon her and the power of God would over shadow her and then a holy child would be born (Luke 1:31). The sign to the shepherds of the Christ was that the child would be found in swaddling cloths in a manager. (Luke 2:12) The disciples on the other hand were told to tarry until they were endued with power from on high (Acts 1:4-5) during this period they were to stay together offering prayers and supplications, rejoicing and giving God praise.

What you do in the time of patience is to take the thought that you have received from God and start rejoicing and praising Him. Then you start offering prayers over it saying it has been fulfilled as you thank and praise Him for its fulfilment. During this process that has just been described you are also looking for a sign. The reason you are on the look out for a sign is because once you start praying, there is usually an out pouring of the Spirit. Without your knowledge the Spirit will produce a sign i.e. you are going to find a baby. That massive dream or project will come into the earth as a baby and there will be no room in established mainstream order for it.

Therefore if you are going into the inn to find room for it you will not find it. It will be born in a manger, wrapped in swaddling clothes.
Assuming you are confessing a particular figure for 2009 that God will bless you with, just watch out for the baby that will be born outside the inn. Start looking for that sign and the minute you find the project on the earth, the kind of opportunity that does not look like a big, massive main stream idea, the type that does not take you into the courts of established business or make you behave and have that front then you will eventually find it. It says what you are to do is to start working with what you have and start nourishing it.

So what you need to do is to follow peace with all men without having any resentment inside your heart regardless of what happens. It also says follow holiness because that is how you are going to see God. Go to God in the place of prayer, decide not to destroy or violate yourself. Therefore when it is born the purpose of that thing will be clearly defined on the inside of you and you stay with that and follow it.

There will always be tests for the preparation of the blessing. Do not go with the clock, but with that compass. There is something you need to know about the compass on the inside. It might look like a slow start, but when you have passed the test you will make geometric progression i.e. it will be in leaps and bounds and the grounds you cover will not be reversed. If you follow the compass it will never be reversed, the grounds you have taken are forever... Pastor Poju Oyemade
