Jay,

I sometimes wonder if God wants me to dream big, or let go of my hopes, dreams and plans and let Him amaze Me with what He can do. I find that my dreams, like Mark Batterson hit on, are way too small in comparison to what God can and desires to do in and through me. I don't think the human brain can fathom His greatness or the magnitude of His works. One of my life verses is Eph.3:20, which says,

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.

That tells me that God wants to blow me away with what He can do, and that what He can do far exceeds my ability to dream it up. I do believe He gives us glimpses (vision), but we will never fully figure out what God is up to and He will always amaze us if we are open and honest.

I certainly don't have it all figured out. I have big dreams; dreams that I believe are from God. I believe His dreams came when I let go of what I was hoping and dreaming for.

dave :: i agree 100%. when i embrace my smallness, i see God at work the most. and when i see Him at work, my mind goes wild with what could be. that's when those "God-ideas/dreams/visions" come down the pike...but even then, we can only see a small piece of the big picture that God is painting.

thanks for your insight and example!

I needed to be reminded of that tonight Jay! Thanks for letting God use you through this post.
