What is your biggest dream in life? If you could have one dream come true what would it be? I am sure all of us have at one time or another thought about a HUGE dream we would like to come true. If your like me sometimes it probably begins with, after winning the lottery…
Come on I know I have thought, what would I do what would I buy. I think my wife would be on a plane to the Caribbean as soon as she found out we won to be house shopping for us!
Recently there has been a verse on my mind a lot, so much that I posted it as a daily verse a couple days ago. The verse is Ephesians 3:20-21 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. Now don’t get excited and jump to any conclusions yet. I am not tying God to you winning the lottery. I do think as Christians though we should have some HUGE GOD SIZED DREAMS! I love the idea this verse brings out, that we can come up with some amazing thing God could use us to do for HIS Glory. Some big dreams that bring glory to God. He thinks that is great but he also knows that he can make those dreams bigger and more impactful than we can even begin to imagine.
The words immeasurably more really stand out to me. Try to grasp that idea. You can’t even measure how much more. We used to talk about feet, acres, miles and now we even measure light years. God can top that!
For me that is exciting but also convicting. I read 1 Corinthians 2:9 today, However, as it is written: “What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived”—the things God has prepared for those who love him. I have no idea the things God has for Matt to do with my remaining time here on the Earth. I do know though that he wants me to impact people for eternity and do everything for Him to be glorified. Oh and by the way, it may be something that has never been seen or even imagined. Think about it, just a few decades ago who would have thought I could pull a phone out my pocket and watch another preacher from somewhere else in the world preach. Something that we take for granted but when I was born how far fetched would that have been? We can’t let what we don’t know now limit us! Because God knows it and may be planning to use it to help us reach not only our God sized dream but even more!
What is your God sized dream? Do you have one? If you could do one thing to impact peoples lives toward Christ for eternity what would you want to do? There are so many people that our out there doing it. They started with a small idea or dream and it just kept growing and growing and has touched peoples lives in ways they probably never imagined, including their own! Next week I will share a little of my wife and my God Sized Dream with you. In the meantime I hope you will spend some time in prayer and thinking about the biggest way God could use you, but be ready, because your biggest may be just his beginning!
