I was thinking the other day – you know it’s good to think and contemplate once-in-a-while and not simply run on automatic pilot all the time – I was thinking that it doesn’t cost extra to dream big – to dream super-sized dreams. I believe that. Too often Christians tend to dream too small and thus are really underestimating God and what He is wanting and willing to do with one individual life wholly dedicated to Him – YOUR LIFE – YOU!
I also believe we have entered a season in the Kingdom when God is wanting His children to super-size everything … to dream big dreams and believe God for great things. I believe that we are entering a new season in the Christian faith when God is wanting His children to believe for big things … yes, it would be nice to lead someone to the Lord – super-size that…lead 15 to the Lord and start a weekly discipleship group in your living room. It would be nice to go on a short-term mission trip and influence another nation and people group for God – super-size that…. go to another nation and impact the nation with the power and presence of God establishing a permanent Kingdom presence. It would be good to see the power of God touch lives as you pray for people – super-size that…. it would be good to walk in and experience the power of God constantly throughout your day and week all year and into the rest of the decade and beyond. You get the idea.
We think too small – we believe too small. We have a big God who is able to, willing to and eager to move supernaturally through His people. And would – if His people will release Him to do so. Now is the time – God is touching hearts and speaking to His children around the world urging them to believe big. Let Him – ask Him – to touch your heart and mind so that you too can be counted as one who will stand up and believe God for big things in 2010.
Believe big. Apply your faith towards something substantial and nation-changing. Don’t settle for the normal, the natural, the every-day. Enter the adventure that is known as the Christian faith. Afterall, we have a relationship with the living God through Jesus Christ and so we are walking with and talking to the Creator … so think and believe big and wonderful things because truly “all things are possible to those who believe” and He has certainly never though small – just look around at all that He has created – big and getting bigger as His universe continues to expand at the speed of light…
So, my question to you today: What are you believing God is going to use you to do in the coming days and weeks? Good – got it? Now super-size it. Think bigger – even bigger than that. That’s it – never underestimate God.
