The Power of Dreams (Part Twelve): The Abundant Mentality.

Not Power, but By Grace
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)
We continue with our fifth example, David, a man after God’s own heart.


David had several opportunities to kill Saul and take over the kingdom by force, but the hand of the Lord humbled him. [1 Samuel 24:5] That is the power of dreams! Dreams give you an abundance mentality. It helps you understand there is enough to go around. There is enough wealth available to go around for everyone. It is not a zero-sum game. It is not a finite game. It is an infinite game. 
"To be a winner in life and in business you must act like a winner, and what better way to do that than to emulate the habits of highly successful people." - Peter Legge.
There is an infinite set of possibilities and outcomes. It is not about competing with someone else. It is about competing with your own self. Just how much of the evil in our world today will be taken away if we can tap into the abundance that is in God through dreams. All the envying, coveting, competitions, backbiting, front-deceiving, and the likes will all be taken away. 
"All successful men and women are big dreamers. They imagine what their future could be, ideal in every respect, and then they work every day toward their distant vision, that goal or purpose." - Brian Tracy.

We will understand that we can create the world we want. And not feel we have to compete with others for the seemingly little we think is available. Having a Poverty (Scarcity, Poor) Mentality is only natural. It is only natural for weeds, thistles, and thorns to grow on the soil. They are a result of the fall. They come naturally. [Genesis 3:17-19; Romans 8:20-22] 

If we want an Abundance Mentality we need to cultivate it. It does not come naturally. This is where Jacob missed it. It wasn’t God’s will for him to trick the brother of his birthright. The end does not justify the means. In God, the means are just as important as the end if we want an abundance mentality. Our God is not just the God of Beginning and End. He is the Gid of the In-Betweens just as well.

Our God does His greatest works in the in-betweens of life. That is where growth occurs. That is where transformation, becoming, an dtaking hold occurs. That is where God lives, in the in-betweens of our lives. It is where the mircle of life takes place. Those who under the Abundant Mentality find rest in the in-between of their lives. They are the Isaiah 28:16 people. They are not moved or disturbed by temporal things.
