Work brings profit, but mere talk leads to poverty! Proverbs 14:23

EVERYONE HAS A
DREAM, BUT VERY FEW HAVE EXECUTION

Lazy people want much but get little, but those who work hard will prosper. Proverbs 13:4

DREAMS THAT TURN INTO REALITY ARE
EARNED BY THOSE WHO ARE WILLING TO WORK HARD!

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as though you were working for the Lord and not for people. Colossians 3:23 GNT

DREAMS ARE CONCEIVED ON YOUR
KNEES AND ACHIEVED ON YOUR FEET.

A LIFE THAT EXECUTES

They said to me, “Things are not going well for those who returned to the province of Judah. They are in great trouble and disgrace. The wall of Jerusalem has been torn down, and the gates have been destroyed by fire.” When I heard this, I sat down and wept. In fact, for days I mourned, fasted, and prayed to the God of heaven. Nehemiah 1:3-4

1. EXECUTION FOCUSES ON THE
WHY

MOTIVATION COMES FROM UNDERSTANDING THE WHY BEHIND THE WHAT.

I cry out to God Most High,to God who will fulfill his purpose for me. Psalms 57:2

2. EXECUTION HAS A SUBSTANTIAL
PRICE

I was serving the king his wine. I had never before appeared sad in his presence. So the king asked me, “Why are you looking so sad? You don’t look sick to me. You must be deeply troubled.” Then I was terrified, but I replied, “Long live the king! How can I not be sad? For the city where my ancestors are buried is in ruins, and the gates have been destroyed by fire.” The king asked, “Well, how can I help you?” Nehemiah 2:1-4

MANY TIMES WE WILL
SETTLE INSTEAD OF SACRIFICE FOR OUR DREAMS

I have worked harder, been put in prison more often, been whipped times without number, and faced death again and again. Five different times the Jewish leaders gave me thirty-nine lashes. Three times I was beaten with rods. Once I was stoned. Three times I was shipwrecked. Once I spent a whole night and a day adrift at sea. I have traveled on many long journeys. I have faced danger from rivers and from robbers. I have faced danger from my own people, the Jews, as well as from the Gentiles. I have faced danger in the cities, in the deserts, and on the seas. And I have faced danger from men who claim to be believers but are not. I have worked hard and long, enduring many sleepless nights. I have been hungry and thirsty and have often gone without food. I have shivered in the cold, without enough clothing to keep me warm. 2 Corinthians 11: 23-27

So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever. 2 Corinthians 4:18

3. EXECUTION HAS A
STRATEGY

GOALS ARE THE GASOLINE THAT GETS THE VISION GOING


The city officials did not know I had been out there or what I was doing, for I had not yet said anything to anyone about my plans. I had not yet spoken to the Jewish leaders—the priests, the nobles, the officials, or anyone else in the administration. But now I said to them, “You know very well what trouble we are in. Jerusalem lies in ruins, and its gates have been destroyed by fire. Let us rebuild the wall of Jerusalem and end this disgrace!” Then I told them about how the gracious hand of God had been on me, and about my conversation with the king. They replied at once, “Yes, let’s rebuild the wall!” So they began the good work. Nehemiah 2:16-18

GOALS BUILD CONFIDENCE & CONFIDENCE BUILDS
MOMENTUM

4. EXECUTION HAS AN
IMPACT

So on October 2 the wall was finished—just fifty-two days after we had begun. When our enemies and the surrounding nations heard about it, they were frightened and humiliated. They realized this work had been done with the help of our God. Nehemiah 15-16
