And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be.
God has all power and can do all things but He has setup laws and principles in place to guide the operation of all things. We would therefore need to follow those principles and laws to attain certain things here on earth.
There is a role of your dream in conception. Your conception is not necessarily what you dream about when you sleep at night, but what is conceived in your heart every walking day of your life based on what you consistently hear.
God had called Abraham into fatherhood even though his situation didn’t look anything like what God had said. It is obvious that when God gave him that promise, it did not materialize immediately; He spoke it to him because the promise needed Abraham’s womb for conception. Until there is a conception, there can be no birthing forth. Though it took Abraham 25 years, God had to change his name to become the future he had spoken to him about; so that for every time Abraham heard his name, a seed of the promise given to him would be watered until its maturity.
What is the state of your heart in respect to what God has spoken to you about your future or that dream He put in your heart? Have you been watering it with the right words and even pictures around you or are you living under the dominion of the present challenge you are facing which is totally contrary to what God has told you about your future? Start now! Eliminate all doubt, and remove from your environment everything that negates God’s word to you. Start putting pictures and scriptures around you until the womb of your heart begins to nurture that vision in a healthier environment. Halleluyah.
