We all have big dreams for the year. Hopefully, those dreams are so big that only God can cause them to come true. If you’re a dreamer like me, you’re always praying about new ideas and you’re always asking for creativity. However, sometimes we do so much praying that we forget to do a little expecting. We forget that God has heard our prayer all 50 times, and He has already begun to work on our behalf. Those prayers have been spoken, and now it’s time to get in position to receive.
The receiving position is the place where you can catch all that God has to give. It’s the place that requires you to do nothing but sit back and say “God, I thank you.”
If you have been praying for ideas and creativity, one great way to receive those things is to simply carry a notebook. I’m sure you thought I was going to say something profound but nope! The act of receiving only requires you to be ready to receive. It requires you to be in the right position with an open heart and an open hand.
In 2014, a notebook should become our best friend. It should be the accessory we simply cannot do without. Throughout the year, your notebook will become your receiving position each time God speaks to you and gives you an idea.
I don’t know about you but I’m expecting God to be spontaneous. I am expecting Him to do the unexpected each day He wakes me up. If you have been praying for God to bless you, you should be expecting the same. The best way to receive the unexpected is to be ready for it. Begin placing a notebook next to your bed. Keep another one in your gym bag or purse and one more at the office. You can even keep it simple and maintain one that you can carry everywhere you go. Whatever you do, invest in a notebook this year and call it your Book of Blessings.
At the end of the year, you will be amazed at the number of ideas God has given to you. Even if some of those ideas don’t come to pass this year, they will already be written. You will already have one seed in the ground for your next business, book or career.
2014 is not the year to sleep on God. The bible says that God’s word is quick, effective and active (Hebrews 4:12). That means the moment you speak one of His promises, it begins working for you and with you.
Be sure to add “purchase a notebook” to your to-do list for the weekend. It’s one of the BEST things you can do for yourself this weekend. It’s one of the most inexpensive investments you can make into your dreams. This is how dreams come true–by staying ready. Stay ready for the moment my friends!
God has something ENORMOUS in store for you!
