Ephesians 3:20, “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.”
“The size of our God should determine the size of our dreams.”
As children, we dare to dream big! Our imaginations run wild with endless possibilities, and we boldly believe that we can be or do anything. Yet as we grow older, we realize that life doesn’t always mirror the life we dreamed of as children – no longer do we look to the future with endless possibilities
However, the Bible says that nothing is impossible for God. This is the same God who split the Red Sea and raised Jesus from the dead. He gave us the ability to dream, to imagine, so why do we often attempt to limit our limitless God? What happened to our childlike faith?
Do you believe God has a perfect plan and purpose for your life? We say that phrase often, but do you really believe it? Life may not have turned out quite the way you expected, but you can be certain of this: when you trust God completely, and align your life with him, you will see that he is at work within you to do “immeasurably more” than you ever dreamed possible!
Reread today’s verse. What new dreams and desires has God been placing on your heart? Write them on an index card and place them in your Bible. Each time you encounter them, dare to pray with audacious faith.
Dear God, thank you for doing more than I can ask or imagine. Help me to remember that there’s nothing you can’t do and guide me to have audacious, childlike faith. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
