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.
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.
Slightly Obsessed #207: The Real Avenger
The current popularity of Marvel Comic movies and spin-offs has brought a series of ancient mythical deities to prominence. People used to actually worship these flawed heroes, but the real Avenger is at the door.
Slightly Obsessed #206: A Portrait of Faith: Willing to Learn
Sometimes it’s hard to discern God's voice above the noise in our head and around us. The Bible encourages us to keep listening and keeping trying, because like anything else, we are trained by practice.
Slightly Obsessed #205: A Portrait of Faith: The Courage to Trust
Trust is a gift we give someone who has earned the right to ask for it. It’s the bond between two people who have a history between them. Trust is hard-won and easily lost.
Slightly Obsessed #204: A Portrait of Faith: An Obedient Heart
Is it really so important to know and obey God's Word if we're already saved? Isn't worrying about obedience just a form of legalism? Don't we live in the age of grace?
Slightly Obsessed #203: God Doesn’t Need Our Thanks
If we were to walk through an open door to heaven as the apostle John did in a vision during his imprisonment on Patmos, we would not find a forlorn father awaiting a phone call from his children, but a royal residence filled with glory.
