The Power of Dreams (Part Eleven): The Call (Drive, Pull) of Destiny.

The Call of Destiny
And the Lord said, Behold, they are one people and they have all one language; and this is only the beginning of what they will do, and now nothing they have imagined they can do will be impossible for them. (Genesis 11:6, AMP)
There Are No Coincidences in Life:

Some people call it a coincidence. I choose to call it “The Call (Drive, Pull) of Destiny.” How come David had access to Saul’s presence ever before he was needed on the battleground? [1 Samuel 16:14-23] How come he came to the battleground at a time there was a need? Which amongst the prices offered by Saul might have motivated David more, and why? [1 Samuel 17:25-27] 
"Efforts and courage are not enough without purpose and direction." — John F. Kennedy.
Could having access to the palace, prior, played a part? To what extent did being a pre-anointed king affect  David's confidence? Was the "roar of a king" in him spurring him? To what intent was David’s encounter with the lion and the bear? [1 Samuel 17:33-37] What difference did these make for David? Would he have had a story (memorial) without them? 
"Don't be pushed by your problems. Be led by your dreams." — Ralph Waldo Emerson.
Your Dream is Waiting on You:

Would David have had the boldness and the faith to face Goliath without his own record of victories and experience with God? A whole lot of us suppose we are waiting on God while doing absolutely NOTHING. God has already done His part. So, not sure who or what you are waiting for. The next move is ours to make.  
"It is not enough to have a good mind; the main thing is to use it well." — RenĂ© Descartes.
God has born dreams of greatness in our hearts [Ecclesiastes 3:11]. He has given us the mandate of dominion. [Genesis 1:28; Romans 5:21] He has given us provisions in His Word. He has given us His Spirit to stir us, comfort us, lead us, and guide us [Luke 11:13]. What else are we waiting for? He is severally casting visions of possibilities before us. Yet, we say we are waiting. 

Run with the Last Command:

Waiting for what or who? I don't really know. Yes, I understand there is a place for special directions and specific details. However, while you are waiting, what are you doing with the last mandate He gave you? No other mandate will come until He sees your faithfulness in the last one, and your time is due. So, while you are waiting for special directions and specific details, stay faithful and profitable. 
"Our inner image of ourselves and what we want to accomplish in life makes us become what we were meant to be." — Mark Victor Hansen.
Occupy till He gives you the next mandate. Keep the course. Stay faithful on the last mandate - the last word you heard. Provoke heaven to action on your behalf. Your miracle is in your present assignment, not the one you are eager for. Your faithfulness, where you presently are, is what will open the door for you. Get to work, my dear. Get to serving where you presently find yourself. 
"In the beginning, the dream makes the person, but in the end, the person makes the dream." — John Maxwell.
Make the best of the opportunities it affords you. There is a miracle. There is a call for you in it. Your waiting is not an excuse to be lazy or be idle. Keep pushing. Keep winning. Keep reigning.  It is time to step out and win. It is time to face the lion and the bear. It is time to bring down every Goliath that stands in the path of your destiny (dreams). Let the king in your roar. Roar! 

It is your time to reign. [Revelations 5:10]
