I compiled many scriptures that we looked at in church and came up with a Dream Plan To Do List:
– 2 Peter 3: 9-18
– Rom 8:18-24
– 1 Thes 5:8
God’s dream is that all should come to repentance, HE is LONG-SUFFERING toward us…not slack but diligent.
We have a responsibility in God’s dream for us. We are the ones that have to come to repentance and it’s His kindness that leads us (Rom 2:4).
Just like God, we must not be not slack but diligent to believe in (have faith in) the PROMISE that He has given us, and exercise long-suffering.
Just like Abraham that believed in God’s promise to Him and it was credited to him as righteousness.
As we wrap up this year and enter into the new and as we HOPE/DREAM for what we do not see, these things must be added to our faith:
· Look forward
· Be diligent
· Pursue peace
· Grow in grace and knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ
· Eagerly wait with perseverance
· Have earnest expectation
As we keep looking forward and hoping, long-suffering and perseverance will be developed.
Even when we are weak and groan within ourselves and do not know how to pray, the spirit intercedes for us with groaning.
We must also comfort each other and edify one another in the process.
Be encouraged and keep looking up!
