Be SURE and CERTAIN and ACT and God Will See You to It

Good morning, Happy Souls!

Bill Keller wrote a devotional today that I
recommend to you. He has given me permission to
copy his e-mails, and I'm sure he would be happy if
you would share this with people you know as well.

God has promised us that we can live our dreams.
Today's devotional describes a good process you can
use to work with God to turn Godly dreams into reality.

Please read on.


( Mark 9:23, Psalms 37:4 )

am excited to announce that the past several TV
programs will now be available for you to watch on the website ON-DEMAND! If you have never
seen the program, or if you miss a night, you will now be
able to go to and click on the
"LIVEPRAYER TELEVISION" icon on the bottom left of the
homepage ( ) and watch the
most recent programs there.

Jesus said in Mark 9:23, "Everything is possible for him
who believes."

Don't dream it, DO IT! The Nike sporting goods company
used a very simple but powerful phrase in one of their
recent ad campaigns, "Just do it." This is going to be
a little different Devotional today. I want to take a
moment right now before you do anything else and simply
ask the Lord to open your heart to hear this message
today since it has to do with faith. Now, let me ask
you a question. What is something that you have always
dreamed of but have never done? Maybe it is to see a
certain place or do a certain thing. What is something
that you have always dreamed of but have never done?

The writer of Hebrews defines faith in Hebrews 11:1 as,
"now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain
of what we do not see." Note the key words in this
definition are SURE and CERTAIN. True Biblical faith is
not something we simply hope for, but we are SURE of what
we hope for. True Biblical faith is not just a blind leap
into the dark, we are CERTAIN of what we do not see. That
is why Jesus told us that, "EVERYTHING is possible for him
who believes." Not a few things, not certain things, not
most things...EVERYTHING!

Today, I want to challenge your faith and encourage you to
fulfill your dreams. As I share with you often, this
journey through life is very short. It is over before we
even know it. We know the Bible teaches us that tomorrow
is promised to none of us, that each day is literally a
gift from God. We must treat each day as the precious gift
it is and make the most of it. Too many people live their
lives in those "ruts." You get comfortable in making life
work for you on a daily basis and get locked into a
routine that you rarely if ever deviate from. You complain
how boring life is, how unexciting life is, when the
problem is not life but the way you choose to live it each

Over these past 16 years, I have ministered to and walked
with hundreds of people from 10 to 97 in the final days
of their life. In almost every case the person shared
with me their regrets about things they had always wanted
to do but didn't, places they had always wanted to see but
never went. Now, in their final hours of this life they
felt bad for not having taken the time or made the effort
to see and do all of the things they had wanted to do.

Let me ask you again, what is something that you have
always dreamed of but have never done?

Here is my word for you today, my challenge. Sit down with
a paper and pen and answer the above question on the paper.
Write down what it is you have dreamed of but never done.
Maybe you always wanted to see the Great Wall of China.
Write it down. Maybe you have always wanted to learn how
to ride a horse. Write it down. There is not one person
reading these words today that doesn't have something you
have always wanted to do or some place you have always
wanted to visit. Everyone has a dream they have not seen

After you have written down what it is you have always
dreamed of, take that paper and pray over it. Pray in
faith that God is going to let you see your dream come
true. God is not some magic genie in a lamp that we rub
and make wishes to. However, God is the One who promised
that, "everything is possible for him who believes."
God is the One who promised to, "give you the desires of
your heart." As a follower of Jesus Christ you have very
right to hold God to His promises. There is no dream that
is too big for God!!!

This journey through life is exciting, exhilarating, and
can be a wonderful experience. What I find in so many
lives I deal with each day is that they have allowed the
trials and tribulations of this life to overwhelm them
to the point they have stopped dreaming. They are simply
content with not living in turmoil and have forgot how to
dream, let alone believe their dreams can come true.

Your life, just like your relationship with the Lord will
be exactly what you choose it to be. We ALL have to face
the problems that life throws our way. That is simply
part of living in this sin-filled and fallen world.
There are always problems, things that don't go the way
we expect or like. The key is do you allow the problems
of life to choke off your joy? Do you allow the trials
you face to steal your peace. Do you allow the
challenges of life to rob you of the abundance Christ
promised you?

I love you and care about you so much. I want to encourage
you to start living each day in faith, the faith that
"everything is possible for him who believes." That
doesn't just mean being victorious over the day-to-day
trials of this life, but seeing your dreams fulfilled as
well. I want to encourage you today to take the piece of
paper you have written down whatever you have always
dreamed about and work to make your dream a reality! God
will help you.

Don't listen to the liar satan tell you don't have the
money, you don't have the time, it can't be done, or any
other lie he will tell you to discourage you. Who are
you going to believe, the liar who says your dream won't
come true or God who promised you that "everything is

This message today is MUCH deeper than just challenging
you to make your dream come true. Once you do whatever
it is you have dreamed about, once you make that dream a
reality, you are going to want to make your next dream
come true. After you see that dream become a reality, you
will want to make the next dream come true. Over time, you
are not just living life, you are making the most of each
day and instead of simply dreaming, YOU ARE LIVING YOUR

Jesus promised us, "Everything is possible for him who
believes." Don't dream it, DO IT!!!

In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
Bill Keller
