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.
Slightly Obsessed #192: Heaven Is Calling: Consider Jesus
Some days we can barely hear it. Other days it drives us to our knees. But it’s always there; that persistent tug in our souls. Whether we trudge through our days or chase the stars of fame and fortune, we can’t drown out the cry that sounds silently in the pit of our being, jarring us with its urgency and moving us with its tears.
No matter what you may be going through in life, I want you to know that God's grace is sufficient for you. You may have messed up, you may have failed, you may have gone the wrong direction, you may have gossiped, or much worse, but God wants you to know that it does not define who you are. He does. He and His grace is much more powerful than anything you might have said or done. Grace always shocks. It always amazes, and it always stuns. Grace is what we all need. It's what everyone groping around lost in the darkness needs to know.
Slightly Obsessed #191: You Can Give Others the Gift of Courage
My father lay propped up in the hospital bed, his face ashen against the white sheets. My step-mother and I huddled around him in the cramped space of the progressive care unit in which he was recuperating. He had suffered three heart attacks in the space of one month. None of us had gotten much sleep in the last few days. So far, we had seen little of either the hospitalist in charge of his care or the cardiologist on staff.
Slightly Obsessed #190: A Warbird’s Lesson
On a recent hot July day, we took in an air show in our town. Vintage planes, including a couple of impressive old warbirds, sat majestically on the tarmac for inspection as we darted from wing to wing to find relief from the withering heat.
These planes are still operable, so although some of them were open for people to walk through, the cockpits were off-limits for obvious reasons. No one wanted a tragedy to happen because an unauthorized person tampered with the controls. People who don’t know what they’re doing shouldn’t be in control.
Slightly Obsessed #189: The Calling
The sound must have been a maddening echo that haunted him at first, tormented by the rooster’s crow that mocked his empty proclamation of loyalty. For three days, his faith lay in the grave with the Savior’s body, darkened by the memory of his public desertion.
Slightly Obsessed #188: Freedom
He was shouting “Freedom” as he plowed his car at twenty-one miles an hour into the granite monument engraved with the Ten Commandments.
A video posted on the suspect’s Facebook page depicted the man in his car facing the monument as a women’s voice, presumably on a car radio, asked, “Where do you go when you’re faced with adversity and trials and challenges?”
