Read: “Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen” Ephesians 3:20-21 (NLT)
Reflect: I love today’s verse for many reasons. It has a triumphant tone to it and uses words like “mighty power,” “indefinitely more,” and “all generations forever and ever.” These are such definitive descriptions of God’s almighty-ness to me.
As I think about dreaming big dreams I’m reminded that our Father owns everything. Literally everything. Which means ANYTHING is possible. The deciding factor comes down to me and we. Will I trust God enough to ask him to awaken the big dream within me? Will I accept his calling and tugging on my heart to do big things? Will we believe that there is something greater in the works than what we can imagine?
So, while big dreams may scare most people, they don’t scare me and shouldn’t scare us. Furthermore, as today’s verse confirms, we can accomplish MORE than we might ask for or even think. Basically, it’s impossible to out-dream God, out-give God, or out-love God. Accepting that as true, what would you attempt for God if you knew you wouldn’t fail?
React: Jump In. Make Waves. Seriously though, do it. While following God’s guidance this week, pay attention to what stirs your heart and gets you going. Stop to pray, give thanks for what God’s calling you to, then step to the edge of the water and cannonball.
Pray: God, I will do BIG things for you. Thank you for putting God-sized dreams in my heart. I thank you in advance for sending provision so I may carry out your purposes. Amen.
