Believe in the Extraordinary 

Dream Big – Believe Big 


The beginning of each new year we hear encouraging sermons, predictions, and set goals for the new year. Seven years ago, I wrote what the title of our senior pastor’s sermon in my journal – Dream Big, Pray Big. The words I wrote in my notebook the first Sunday of 2014 encourage me to dream bigger than I am capable of own my own.   


I’ve written those words many times to encourage myself. The four words, Dream Big, Pray Big, remind me our God is big.  I can’t out ask, nor can I out dream Him.  


God created creatures that we would never imagine in our wildest dreams. His astounding, creativity outshines everything and everyone throughout history. Look around you. See God’s amazing talent on display in His creations.   


Dream impossible dreams. Pray for things that you know when they come true can only have been answered by God working it out. Dreaming and Praying are only the first two steps in achieving your big, outrageous, glorious dreams. The final two steps are Believe Big and Accept Big. 


God is in the tiniest details of your life. He is in the big scope of your existence. He knows it all. Trust Him. When you do, you’d better hang on because when God’s in control you will be on a wild ride that bursts all your expectations and beliefs. He is more than capable to out design out dream, out believe, and out imagine our abilities. 


 Just be ready to accept the changes when you have dreamed big and prayed big because He will bring it to you. 

This year is almost half over. What have you been dreaming about? What is your big hairy-oh my-too impossible-to ask for- dream? I challenge you, place your desire on the throne at the feet of Jesus and see what He does with it by the end of the year? You will never know if you do not ask.
