I really believe I can do it!
Not because I believe I can do it, but because I believe that God can.
Our God is always bigger than our dreams.
If we live and breathe and find our being in God, then the things we do will reflect that.
If we trust in His timing, His provision, and His will, then it will be evident in the way we handle our goals and our dreams.
But we must remember that we don’t need to give small dreams to a little God.
We may be small.
Our abilities and our accomplishments may be small, but when they are in line with God’s will and His ways, they become big.
Not because of what we do but because of who He is.
Set magnificent goals.
And when your goals come crashing down or your dream begins to feel like a never-ending nightmare of rejections, disappointments, and setbacks; keep going!
Because God never gives up on us.
His promises never fail.
His mercies never end.
His work is never done.
In the end, our goals and dreams, our aspirations, and our desires are ultimately about Him, His kingdom, and His purposes.
At least they should be!
If they aren’t, then we need to rethink what we are doing and why. We might need to examine our hearts, our purposes, and the intentions behind what we are doing.
Because if our desires are in line with His, then we sell ourselves, and our God, short when we fail to dream big.
You see, He has plans and a purpose for each of us. It is His desire to see them come to fruition.
Sure, we will falter at times. Sometimes our attempts will fail. Giving up and giving in will be a great temptation at times because it is really, really hard to dare to dream big and then to do what it takes to accomplish our goals.
But when we give up, we aren’t just giving up on our own endeavors; we might just be giving up on His plans for us.
His plans are always for our good.
So let us not weary in striving.
Let us not give up or give in, even when it’s hard and even when it hurts.
Because our big dreams might just be His, too!Print This Post
