Dream Big

Joy Wilson

Bold has been our theme for the year. I have taken the words that I felt the Lord gave me and shared from them each month.

B - Believe for God’s best
O - Obedience to God’s Word
L - Lead with Excellence
D - Dream Big

What are your bold dreams and hopes for your life? I asked someone this question recently and they responded, “I don’t have any.” My heart sank as I realized this person had battled many disappointments in life. Maybe you're challenged with this today, as well.

Sometimes it’s hard to battle through challenges. My encouragement today is to remember set-backs are often God’s set-ups for spiritual breakthrough.

I was recently reading something by Christine Caine and her challenge was: "Live like you believe God’s Word is true. God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or dream, according to His power that works in us." (Ephesians 3:20)
"A dream is an inspiring picture of the future that energizes your mind, will and emotions, empowering you to do everything you can to achieve it." (John Maxwell)
As you dare to believe God for greater things, remember the One who can change everything is the One who can do anything. I'm believing with you that as you sit and say, “Jesus I need you,” He in return will say, “Tell me what you want, how you feel, what you need," and you will begin to dream big once again.

Psalm 126 is a great reminder of God’s faithfulness.

May you experience greater things as we finish out 2018.
