Dream Big: Forever His
He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. Philippians 1:6 (NIV)
Did you know that God is in perfect tune with the dreams inside your heart? Each desire, each larger-than-life aspiration—God knows them all because He made each one. With you in mind, He hand-carved every dream you’ve ever dreamed.
While some of these dreams may seem unattainable, even though some of them may seem far too big for a small town girl…remember that God is a BIG God and His creations are no less grand. The works of His hands are a wonderful example of His own big dreams and His desire for you to have your own.
He could have stopped at shaping the earth. He could have, but He didn’t. Instead, He dreamed up Saturn with its many rings and Mars with its mysterious storms. He made the wonders of the universe in hopes that billions of young children would dream of exploring them someday. He made the moon’s craters to appear as footprints in the sky. Perhaps that was what made Neil Armstrong dream of putting his own footprints there.
Everything in God’s creation was made to explore, to inspire dreams and to stimulate our imaginations. The next time you find yourself saying your dreams are too big, just remember that your God is a BIG GOD…and He wouldn’t have you dream in any other size.
