What stops us from SUCCEEDING???

We all come into this earth with hopes, dreams and inspiration.  We dream of what we want to become when we grow up.  We hope for our dream house, the dream job and most young girls hope for the dream "fairy tale" wedding.  Many of us start well, but do we finish well?  As time goes on, many of us give up on our dreams, believing that they will never come to pass.  And basically thats what stops us from succeeding; we stop believing!  Believing is key to our success!!!!  Believing goes hand and hand with faith and hope, Hebrews 11:1 says: Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.  Just because we can't see it with our physical eyes, doesn't mean that its not on the way.  Just because we have to wait on it, doesn't mean that its not coming!!!!  I love Ephesians 3:20 in the Amplified Version which says:

Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of the action of His) power that is at work within us is able to  (carry out His purpose and) do superabundantly, far over and above all that we (dare) ask or think (infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts hopes or dreams).

Our God is able to do far over and above what we dare ask, think, pray, hope or dream, then why would ever stop believing that He is able.  I challenge you today to take your hopes, dreams and cares to Jesus on today, lay them at His feet and BELIEVE, that His word is true, in Jeremiah 29:11, God says:

For I know the plans I have for you --this is the LORD's declaration-- plans for your welfare, not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.

God's plans are for our welfare, not for disaster, He wants to give us a future and a hope, in the Contemporary English Version it says:

I will bless you with a future filled with hope--a future of success, not of suffering.

What would happen if you chose to BELIEVE that God's word is true and that He wants the best for you?  What would happen if you chose to BELIEVE that God had all power to make your dreams come true?  What would happen if you chose to BELIEVE?...
