Don’t be afraid to let your dreams be “God sized.” His dreams for you are big: they’re His and they’re significant. Don’t dumb them down or try to reduce them to a level you know you can accomplish without Him. Instead, elevate your dreams to the level of dreams He has for you as His masterpiece. Your life as His masterpiece has more possibility that you can imagine. Look at these words from scripture: “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.” (Ephesians 3:20) The possibilities of what He can do in and through you are limitless, for “nothing is impossible with God.” (Luke 1:37) You may feel like your situation is currently insurmountable for living the dream God has placed in your heart, but don’t feel that way. Impossible thinking is not something you want on your life palette. It will keep you from discovering and living life as the masterpiece He created you to be. Impossible thinking will tie His hands as the artist.
Put Faith Into Action As You Dream
It’s normal if you still have a hint of skepticism. You agree with the idea that nothing is impossible with God, but you interpret it to mean, “If He wants to.” Living in the desert, I often see weather forecasts that predict a 30 percent chance of rain. Yet, no one is taking their umbrellas with them that day. Why? Desert dwellers know it’s possible it might rain, but not highly probable. Perhaps that’s how you view God’s “nothing is impossible” statement, so Jesus put it another way: “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible.” (Matthew 19:26) That perspective changes everything. Not only is it now possible, it’s probable. That statement is a call to put faith into action when it comes to your big dreams.
Take Time To Dream
The dreams God places in you are a precious commodity that must be protected and cultivated. For many, the dream must be rediscovered and rekindled. If you feel you’ve lost your dreams—or that you have no dreams at all—stop reading for a moment and allow yourself time to dream. Answer this question: What do you dream about? In other words, what do you see that could be and should be?
