“Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold back; lengthen your cords, strengthen your stakes.”

– Isaiah 54:2

If you’ve been following my devotionals the past several days, I’m on my fourth Biblical world-changer thought to keep your mind healthy: Move from thinking small to thinking as big as you possibly can. Thinking big used to seem like a quaint motivational cliché to me. But now I believe this to be true. I cannot stress enough that if you can see it, it’s possible for you. Dream big!

However, on the contrary, here’s a good example of a dream I don’t have. I don’t have a dream to colonize Mars. I don’t think I can do it and I don’t want to do it. I like Earth with all of its rainbows, campfires, and even spiders! In contrast, businessman and investor Elon Musk has a dream of doing just that, and I believe he can achieve it. Unfortunately, I cannot. The reason is that it’s not my dream. Dreams usually mean that somewhere deep inside, you know it’s possible for you to achieve them. My dream is that I would like Hour of Power to be shown in North Korea. For me, that’s possible. Another dream is to bring the amazing Dutch transportation infrastructure to my city. These dreams are possible for me, but these are not what I feel God has called me to do. 

Friend, I’ve been given another vision that’s equally challenging. As a husband and as a father, I aspire to be the world’s best. That assignment requires a lot of effort. I also want to build a church filled with world changers. I’d like to start with 12 because that’s how many Jesus needed. These disciples could get a lot accomplished without building an edifice, or being on television. It is possible for you to embrace God’s big vision. When you believe it, you can achieve it!

Prayer


Father, I want to embrace your vision and think big.

Reflection


Do you embrace the greatness of your dreams?

If you’re unable to attend your local church or need some additional weekly inspiration, be sure to tune into Hour of Power every Sunday morning at 11:00 a.m. PT on TBN or watch online at hourofpower.org/episode.
