I love to dream. I love to dream about the future and the things that I want to do with my life. I like to set goals for myself. They say that when you set goals you should set reasonable and attainable goals, because if you set a goal too big and you don't reach it then you get disappointed.
However, maybe just maybe we're called to dream big. Maybe we're called to set "impossible without God goals", so that when we reach them we know it's only because of Him.
I find myself a lot of times setting those kinds of goals... setting goals that aren't necessarily easy. But then when I find myself not reaching them, I tend to minimize the intensity of that goal. So then the goal is no longer what I really wanted in the first place and ultimately it's not what I need to fulfill my calling.
I believe that God wants us to set goals. He wants us to be passionate about something. He wants us to succeed.
We don't have to live a life of mediocrity. In fact, we shouldn't live a life of mediocrity. God isn't a mediocre God, so His people shouldn't be mediocre people.
I struggle with believing that I could actually attain all the goals I set for my life. I just don't understand how I of all the people in the world could be somebody. It just doesn't make sense to my little mind, but if I think about it with a God-sized mind it does.
The Bible says God will give you "the desires of your heart". The Bible says "ask and you will receive". So I'm not saying your going to get every little thing that you "think" you need, but think about it this way... God is our father and a good one at that. So doesn't a good father want to give his children what they need and some? I believe so.
Here's my challenge for you. Dream big. Dream big and don't minimize your dreams just because you have a fear that you can't do it.
The truth is YOU probably can't do it, but with God you CAN.
So dream God-sized impossible dreams. Shake up the earth for the Kingdom of God. People are going to tell you that you can't do it and some people might think you're absolutely insane. But take the challenge and go for it.
