You may know the story of Gideon. He was the son of a farmer during a time when the land of Israel was under attack from the Midianites. One day he was supposed to be out in the field threshing wheat, but actually he was hiding in the winepress because he was afraid of the Midianites. The Lord came to him and told him to lead his people against their enemies, but Gideon wasn’t so sure. “Wait a minute,” he said. ”How can I deliver Israel? My people are the weakest in the whole valley. Not only that, I am the least person in my family. I really think that you should look for somebody else.”
Gideon saw the obvious. He was focusing on what everyone else saw. We do the same thing. We focus on the obvious, instead of seeing beyond the obvious. We all come places that are obvious. I like to say it his way, God will never give you an INVITATION, if you’re focused on your LIMITATION. Some have even given back the invitation because we’re so focused on our limitations…what we have going against us and what we’ve done wrong.
People around you re going to tell you to be realistic and take inventory. Because their focus is on their limitations, they want you to focus on the same. But, you are called to something beyond the obvious. You are called to live an utmost life. You need other dreamers in your corner.
Dreamers need dreamers to tell them to rebel against doubt, hold on to hope and push beyond the obvious. That’s why we started the Dream Academy.
As a leader and mentor to people struggling to find meaning in life, I’ve walked people through some of life’s most difficult circumstances. Cancer, drug addiction, depression, divorce, none of these challenges proved too much for people once they learned to rebel against doubt, hold on to hope and push beyond the obvious.
The Dream Academy will walk you through each area of your life, giving you principles to master so that you will be fully present, fully feeling and fully alive – living your uniquely designed Utmost Life.
