Doubt, fear, and time can claw away at your confidence, stealing the dream God placed in your heart. Unexpected obstacles, with about-face twists and turns, can bump you so far off your expected path that you begin to question the validity of that dream. You may even be tempted to give up hope that you can ever become the person you see when you close your eyes.
But if you yield to the pressure of these dream thieves to abandon your dream, you will forfeit your unique destiny. Furthermore, you will rob yourself of the fulfillment that only your destiny can bring. Every Dream Is Targeted by a Thief - Are You on Guard?
In his revised and updated classic, Dream Thieves, Rick Renner exposes the thieves that come to oppose and rob every single dream - no matter how big or how small that dream may be. Rick also reveals the strategies that every person with a dream must adopt to ensure the fulfillment of his or her dream.
Rick explains that every God-given dream has a significant purpose, leading ultimately to a specific destination. That's why dream thieves show up early and repeatedly along your journey to shift your focus from opportunities to obstacles. Their goal is to overwhelm and intimidate you until you're either immobilized and stuck or moving in a direction that's ineffective. These thieves will challenge your call, doubt your dream, and question your capacity to deliver on the vision that consumes you - until eventually the fire in your heart flickers and fades away.
Obstacles Can Become the Catalyst To Reach Your Goal! But when you understand the significance of the journey toward your dream, you'll discover that a hindrance can actually further your progress. When you know how to respond to the dream thieves that oppose you - to refute instead of run from them - they can actually provide a service to help you become the person you need to be in order to fulfill your destiny.
You can - you must - fulfill your unique purpose in life by walking in your God-ordained calling. Too many abandoned dreams litter the road of life. Don't let your dream be one of them.

When I first wrote this book, it was 1992 and the Soviet Union had just collapsed. My wife Denise and I had obeyed the call of God and moved with our young sons to the crumbling
USSR to begin our ministry to that region of the world. Since that time, many years have come and gone, and God has mightily blessed our lives and ministry. Today I'm sitting at my desk in our Moscow home. Our sons grew up in this part of the world and have all married godly and beautiful Russian young women. Denise and I are the proud grandparents of wonderful Russian-American grandchildren. And today God's call is burning in our hearts more strongly and brightly than ever before.
This book was born out of the challenges my family and I have faced with our own "dream thieves" and out of our own deep desire to fulfill God's will in spite of all opposition.
I've written other books that dealt with specific doctrinal issues in the Body of Christ that needed balance and biblical exposition. This book is far more personal. Within its pages, I discuss the calling, the anointing, and the giftings of God on your life, and I share how you can fulfill the dream God has planted in your heart on your way to your divine destiny.
Therefore, it's my prayer that, as you read this book, God's purpose for your life will be so stirred up within you that you lay aside all your questions and fears and begin to aggressively and unrelentingly pursue whatever He has been telling you to do. If this book encourages you to begin taking the necessary steps on your way to seeing God's plan fulfilled in your life, I will be forever grateful to Him.
Your brother and friend in Jesus Christ,
Moscow, Russia 2009

In his timely and updated message, Dream Thieves, Rick Renner identifies thieves lurking along the road to your destiny and how to deal with them effectively. If your dream is delayed -- or even if it seems to be dead -- this book will revitalize your vision, steering you back on track to its fulfillment!
