Dreaming Big

cb devo jan 26“Now to Him (God) who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His (God’s) power that is at work within us,” Ephesians 3:20 (NIV)

Got something on your bucket list you really want to do? Dreaming big……equals living large. Stepping out into the deep – holding back nothing. Contagious enthusiasm to achieve that long awaited goal. So what’s standing in the way?

For many it’s moving goals from the list into action. Procrastination loves to edge in when we start to move towards the ideal. Distractions, excuses and fears line up when we attempt the new uncharted path. The repeats of the past cloud the new beginnings of today.

Perhaps the derailing of our dreams is hidden beneath the surface of the three D’s: doubt, direction and disappointment. We doubt our abilities; we doubt God’s empowerment. We have no direction; we ignore God’s guidance. We allow disappointment to paralyze us; we reject God’s grace.

It all boils down to one simple truth: God wants His children to experience the abundant life. Dreaming big that seeks His guidance = empowerment. Stepping out trusting in God’s abilities = confidence. Passionately pursuing goals bathed in prayer and surrender = success. God loves our faith steps and daily dependence on Him.   He delights in watching us grow and longs to dance with us in the victory circle.

Empowerment, confidence and success – who wouldn’t want that winning combination! Awesome God moments orchestrated for each of us to shine. Glorious chances to dream big. Uncharted territory waiting for us to take leaps of faith. What’s God nudging us to do? Let’s be brave, adventurous women of God undaunted by doubt. Let’s be gutsy daughters of the King guided by perfect direction. Let’s be accepters of His
grave for all the moments in-between.

“Father, new opportunities await us in 2015 – help us to dream big, listen closely and trust You to fulfill Your purposes in our lives.”

For His Glory
