Get Your Edge Back

DREAMS
Part 1:
Get Your Edge Back

Proverbs 29:18
“where there is no vision the people perish.”

Acts 2:17-18 “‘In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. 18 Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy.”

Three types of People…

1. Those who don’t have a dream.

Jeremiah 33:3 “Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.”

2. Those who have the wrong dream.

3. Those who had a dream but lost it.

2 Kings 6:1  
“The company of the prophets said to Elisha, “Look, the place where we meet with you is too small for us. 2 Let us go to the Jordan, where each of us can get a pole; and let us build a place there for us to meet.” And he said, “Go.” 3 Then one of them said, “Won’t you please come with your servants?” “I will,” Elisha replied. 4 And he went with them. They went to the Jordan and began to cut down trees. 5 As one of them was cutting down a tree, the iron axhead fell into the water. “Oh no, my lord!” he cried out. “It was borrowed!” 6 The man of God asked, “Where did it fall?” When he showed him the place, Elisha cut a stick and threw it there, and made the iron float. 7 “Lift it out,” he said. Then the man reached out his hand and took it.”

Three things from 2 Kings:

1.  It's possible to lose your edge even while building God’s Kingdom.

2. It is possible to lose your edge even while God is blessing.

verse 1 “The company of the prophets said to Elisha ‘Look the place where we are meeting is too small for us. Let us go to the Jordan...let us build a place there for us to live.”

3. It's possible to lose your edge while still being faithful.  

How do we get our edge back?

1. Stop swinging.

2. Go back to where you lost it.

Revelations 2:3-5 “You have persevered and have endured hardships for my name, and have not grown weary. 4 Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken the love you had at first. 5 Consider how far you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first.

3. With God’s help, get it back.

Verse 6-7 “The man of God asked, “Where did it fall?” When he showed him the place, Elisha cut a stick and threw it there, and made the iron float. 7 “Lift it out,” he said. Then the man reached out his hand and took it.”
