When I passed the big five-o, I was still affected by the pain in my back due to ankylosing spondylitis, I thought my dream was over. For almost ten years, whenever the nerve attack came, I died a little. As I stayed in bed, feeling the excruciating pain that drew tears from my eyes, my dream died a little.
God did not allow me to enjoy my pity party. He whispered to me about a purpose even in my pain. Like Job, I had asked God to take me home. I did not want to wake up in pain for the rest of my life.
God had asked me to trust Him. He wanted me to get rid of my doubts. He assured me there was work for me to do - crippled or not. He wanted me to dream again. The dream of being miraculously healed in His name.
Today, for the last five years, I have been miraculously healed in the name of Jesus. My nerves do not suffer inflammation and my back does not hurt. I am not only a healed man but today, I go to different churches to teach about the authority and power to heal in the name of Jesus.

Are you hurting? Are you in a crisis? Did the doctors say that you have no more hope? You are not dead yet and GOD HAS A DREAM FOR YOU. When God gives you a dream, He looks for you to become a willing dreamer who believes.
Whatever age you are now at. Whatever situation you might be in. Whatever crisis you are going through. Would you begin to dream God's dream again... by faith.
And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
