Jordan For Jesus #032 "Dream Big (All I Need Is Jesus)" (Thursday Series) by Jordan Elizabeth on 2014-11-06 12:00:56
Always dream big, but don't just dream any dream. Dream the dreams that God has for you
and your life. When you dream the dreams God has for you and your life, you are dreaming in the will, plan and purpose God has for your life.
If you do not know what God's dreams are for you and your life, pray to God and ask God to reveal His dreams for you and your life to you. He will answer. God is always faithful! God may not answer right away or when you want Him to, but He will answer in His perfect timing.
God's dream for you and your life will never lead you down a path of destruction nor place you on a path that leads you to destruction. God's dream will never place you in a situation where you will have to choose between God or something else and they will never be about something or someone other than Him.
God's dreams for you and your life lead and draw you closer to God. Not away from Him. God has your best interest at heart! Jeremiah 29:11, in the Bible, says "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
God's dreams for you and your life are not for harm but for good. God works all things together for good! Romans 8:28, in the Bible, says "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose." Because God is good and He loves us, you can trust Him when dreaming His dreams for your life that He will make them reality.
When you dream in God's will, plan and purpose for your life, you're unstoppable. Fix your eyes on Jesus and dream big because there is no limit to what God can do in your life, as well as through your life, for Him and His glory. Your dreams cannot compare to the dreams God has for you and your life.
God's dreams are always better, and He knows what is right for you. Apart from Christ we cannot do anything, but in Christ we can do all things! Even dream in the Lord.
Being described as either green or sappy is not usually considered to be a compliment. But Irma lay claim to both, and it was her secret to a bountiful life.
Slightly Obsessed #220: We Only Have One Job
The Martha in us makes everything so hard, when the Lord is calling us to be Mary, running toward the sound of His voice; sitting in stillness at His feet; not wasting a moment of our time with Him in distracted busyness. Simply clinging to His every word.
Slightly Obsessed #219: When the Hedge Comes Down, Part 3
Job's soul had been stripped completely down to the dirt. His friends accused him; he defended himself vigorously. Lost in the cacophony was the voice of God. No one seemed to notice.
Except for one.
Slightly Obsessed #218: When the Hedge Comes Down, Part 2
The book of Job is one of the few glimpses given mankind behind the veil into the interaction between God and his created beings. And the revelation is an astounding one. Not only is Satan not in hell, he has access to both heaven and earth.
Slightly Obsessed #217: When the Hedge Comes Down
When we are in the fire, it’s easy to ask God, “Why?” It doesn’t hurt to ask that question, to examine our own hearts. If we can find no explanation for the trial, it’s possible that another drama is being played out behind the scenes.
Slightly Obsessed #216: Daddy Has You
As I sat at the red light, a pick-up pulled up beside me in the other lane. The window was rolled down, and the driver rested his arm lazily on the door ledge. A chihuahua fur baby sat perched in the crook of the driver’s arm, yapping with all its tiny might at the pickup in front of me.
