steep hiking 2Everyone dreams, but most people don’t do their dreams and the number that dare to dream God’s dreams and then commit to doing them are few.  Doing God’s dreams – dreams that build his kingdom – is a great thrill. You come alive when you’re doing what he created you to do. I first taught this at the Awakening in Brasov Romania in September. Here are a few principles I’ve found helpful as I’ve embraced God’s dreams:

1. Big problems require big dreams and big faith. Don’t dream small dreams. Some of the best dreams never happened because of unbelief. There must be God-room in every dream – if he doesn’t show up, the dream won’t happen.

2. Expect naysayers. People like the status quo. 90% of what we do we do out of habit. When people act like wet blankets, even that can be a habit and is not a reflection on the viability of your dream.

3. Don’t delegate design. It’s your dream – if it’s a kingdom dream, then God dreamed it and entrusted it to you. If you’re not passionate enough to take his dream and design it, don’t do it. Design is often the hardest thing you’ll do. It’s a great place to invest a lot of prayer.

4. Resources are rarely the problem. Get the dream right, communicate it with passion, and the resources will come.

5. Put capable people you enjoy working with on your team. Life is too short to work with knuckleheads. Get people with discernment to help you with screening.

6. Communication is your responsibility. Ensure a frictionless flow of information. Information should get to decision-makers quickly.

7. Commit to mistake-making. You have to fail to succeed and your first drafts of the dream are not going to be pretty. A good idea is worth doing badly.
