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.
Find the GOLD in people. If you only see fault, error, wrongs, sins, and what is bad, in people, then you have no time to love them. You cannot judge people and love people, at the same time, which is why the Word of God instructs us to look for what is good in people. When we look for the good, in people, we are choosing to see people through the eyes of God.
Slightly Obsessed #212: Believe
Sometimes it feels like just getting out of bed sets us up for defeat. But we shouldn’t be surprised. God clued us in thousands of years ago in the book of Job when He warned us that we are born for trouble as surely as sparks from a fire will fly up into the sky.
Slightly Obsessed #211: Can a Worm Fly?
Darkness is God’s secret place, where He fashions a new creation away from the prying eyes of His enemies. In the chrysalis of the closet, He plans and weaves and forms His beloved into something that will burst forth with joy at the proper season.
Slightly Obsessed #210: Arise
A few short moments taken to restore a woman to health had kept Jesus from the bedside of a girl who lay dying. Messengers arrived with the news that Jairus’ little daughter was dead, striking fear in his heart as they destroyed the hope to which he clung.
Slightly Obsessed #209: Look Up
An ancient king faced certain destruction as enemy warriors amassed before him in a surprise attack. His response is our answer for the trials that threaten to destroy us today.
Slightly Obsessed #208: Scorched by Trial
In the gray dawn of another day, I am spent. I can pray no more. There are no more words I can say, no entreaty with which to reach my Master. As the night shadows fade before the rising sun, I open my Bible. In the space between darkness and light, I need to hear His voice.
