Dreaming big dreams often seems to be in the realm of a Walt Disney or Thomas Edison. Yet, everyone has the ability to dream big dreams. There is a difference between big dreams and God-sized dreams. Carl Jung once said, “Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.” It takes both looking out and in to form a God-sized dream. We take the time to pray, reflect, be in the Word, and then apply what we have been dreaming. There are those who dream the dreams and then empower others, those that dream the dreams and set them in motion, and those who dream the dreams but never do anything about them.
God wants you to use your imagination to dream really big dreams. Failure is not a worry when it is fueled by faith – falling and failing is really learning. No great dream ever comes without some learning. And sometimes what we perceive as a setback or even ill treatment is merely a step toward what we needed to be doing in the first place. So use your imagination.
The bible says, “God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever IMAGINE or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by his Spirit working deeply and gently within us.” Ephesians 3:20 (The Message)
