Don't ever lose your dreams! I don't care if it looks like they are never going to come to pass! I would rather keep dreaming and it never come to pass, and yet know that I have drive and motivation in my life and a reason for existence, than have no dream at all!

People who have no purpose in life are miserable people. Have you ever seen people who have no goals, no dreams, no vision, and no purpose? They're miserable!

I don't enjoy being around them. I want to help them and minister to them, but I don't "pal around" with people like that. They'll pull you down to their level, and if you're not careful, you wind up just like them with "no reason to live."

You Are 'Under Construction'
Jesus has a purpose for your life! You have a dream or a destiny that God has given you, and you are expected to hold on to it! Don't give up—even if it looks like your dreams are so far out of reach that there is no way they could ever come to pass.

God is not finished with you yet! Maybe we should all wear a sign around our neck that reads "Under Construction!"
But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee.
(Acts 26:16)
When God gives you purpose, then He is also the one who will make it come to pass. Your responsibility is to hold on to the dreams!

Even if you have blown it and made mistakes, had setbacks spiritually, and even let sin back into your life (that is not a license to continue doing it), but you must remember that God is a God of restoration. "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord" (Acts 3:19).

God wants to give us a time of refreshing. That's what the "spirit of revival" is—a time of refreshing, recovering from the effects of heat, and recapturing your divine destiny!

How do you "catch the spirit of revival?"

The Bible says that "in His presence is fullness of joy." First, you need to go before God and repent that your sins may be blotted out! Second, you need to spend time in fellowship and prayer with the Father.

Spending time with the Lord will produce joy on the inside of you, and that joy will give you the strength you need to get back on your feet and go after the calling God has put on your life! Nehemiah 8:10 says, "for the joy of the Lord is your strength."

Determine now to place yourself in this position: as you spend time in the presence of the Lord, you will be full of His joy, if you are full of His joy, you will have the strength of God in your life, with His strength, you will be able to accomplish His purpose and calling for your life.

On the other hand, if you are not spending time with God, you won't have any joy, if you don't have any joy, you won't have any strength, and if you don't have any strength, you will never fulfill your purpose and dreams!

That is why it is so important to catch the spirit of revival in your life again. God wants to restore that joy in your life! In other words, revival restores joy! Revival restores hope for the future! Revival restores the excitement in waiting for your dream and watching it come to pass! God wants you to have that joy back in your life!

The spirit of revival will produce a force within you which will cause you to be determined to fulfill your purpose and dreams! Spend time with God and get revival in your life!

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.
