"Aggressive" does not mean obnoxious. It simply means you are energetic in pursuing particular goals. The word aggressive implies that an individual would be marked by a driving forceful energy or initiative.

We must be aggressive in our faith and actions to see God's purpose and dreams for our life fulfilled. It will take the forceful energy of the Holy Spirit on the inside of us, our own initiative, and an energetic attitude in pursuing our dreams to see them come to pass. Aggressive people never give up because of outside hindrances or attacks!

Have you experienced the attacks of the devil? We all have. When you are under the effects of heat and pressure, the devil aims his attacks at getting you to lose your sense of direction and purpose. He will try everything to get you to give up! Satan does not want you to fulfill your divine destiny.

On the other hand, the Bible shares hope for the future. No matter what you are going through or what obstacle may be before you, hope will keep you at rest - firm and steady - when your mind is being bombarded with thoughts of giving up!

The Bible paints images on the inside of your heart of who you are, what you are, and what you are entitled to possess as a child of the living God. That revelation knowledge from the Word gives you vision, dreams, and goals, and when you know that God has given you purpose, it causes zeal to rise up on the inside of you, and you become aggressive!

After realizing what rightfully belongs to you, you can never again be passive about your dreams, you have to be aggressive and go after what God has called you to do.

Once you find out that you have authority in the Name of Jesus, you can't be passive about that anymore. Once you find out that by His stripes you are healed, you can't be passive about sickness anymore. You attack that sickness with the Word of God! Once you find out that God has a purpose for your life, you go after it! You have to fulfill what God has called YOU to do.

Even though it may appear that your dream may never come to pass or it may not be the "thing to do" anymore - you better do what God told you to do! Success is fulfilling what God told you to do, not what God told someone else to do!

There are many people who have dreams for their life, but why is it that so many never see them come to pass? The fulfillment or the failure of your dreams is determined by your attitude. Fulfillment comes by an aggressive attitude, whereas, failure is the result of a passive attitude.

There are three types of people in the world:
1) People who make things happen (Aggressive)
2) People who hope things might happen (Passive)
3) People who wonder "what happened?" (Wonderers)

Make sure you are one of those who makes things happen!

Since you became a Believer, I am sure that God has given you some dreams. There have probably been some dreams that you have followed through with, and some of which you have let go.

I challenge you to give some thought to the dreams God has given you. Write them down, aggressively pursue their fulfillment, and check them off as they come to pass! Don't just settle for a life with no purpose! Be aggressive!

Author Biography

Jerry Savelle
Web site: Jerry Savelle Ministries International
Dr. Jerry Savelle was an average, blue-collar man who was struggling and needed God's help. While he considered himself a "nobody," when he became a believer God told him not to worry about it because He was a master at making champions out of nobodies. God has since taken Dr. Savelle from being a constant quitter to a man who knows how to stand on the Word of God until victory is experienced. Because of the life-changing combination of God's faithfulness and Dr. Savelle's "no quit" attitude, his life is totally different than it was thirty-eight years ago.
