Don’t come up short

I’ve been really excited about the possibilities that I feel God has planted in my heart. It’s a been a real season of risk, faith, hope and awesomecrediblephenomness. Yes, thats what you do when you don’t have a word for it.

In this season I have recognized a pattern in me that I have also seen in others and in many Scriptural stories. I’d like to share it with you.

The Dream Process from Andy Addis on Vimeo.

Here’s the process…

1. God plants a dream in you

2. Hope is you believing in what is yet unseen, and you go public with the dream

3. Faith gets you through the hard times as you trust the arm of the Lord is not too short

4. Reality comes when the dream arrives

Don’t bailout in any part of this process! Its too important to give up.

Numbers 11:23 The Lord answered Moses, “Is the Lord’s arm too short? You will now see whether or not what I say will come true for you.”

Isaiah 59:1 Surely the arm of the Lord is not too short to save, nor his ear too dull to hear.

Isaiah 50:2 When I came, why was there no one? When I called, why was there no one to answer? Was my arm too short to ransom you? Do I lack the strength to rescue you?

  1. That is an on time great word from the Lord. I can see the progression in my own life and will testify that even if you do derail the train God is able to put it back on the tracks with out having to start over. God loves us very much and is full of compassion and mercy wants us to make it

  2. Good word and insightful stuff! Liking the tech stuff. Thanks for the time Friday. It meant much to me.

  3. Andy we read that story in our small group awhile back and as a group we were dealing with some things, that God took care of with his long arms. It was awesome to see. Our small group is amazing, we’ve laughed and cried together, prayed for each other and for our church. As a group and individuals we are trying to stretch for God. Thanks for being you and letting God use you the way he does.

  4. What if you dreamed, hoped, stepped out in faith and blew it…then what? How do you “give it another shot”? How?
