DREAM BIG

In our church, we have a homework room for our young people with computers and laptops. In the center of the room, a big painting reads “Dream Big.” Dreaming big is not limited to our young people but for all of God’s people. No matter our age, we should never stop dreaming. I am not talking about daydreaming. I am talking about dreaming about what the Lord can do in our lives knowing that dreams do come true. Our dreams say a lot about us. Do we dream about growing more in Christ? Do we seek to do more for the Kingdom of God? What are your dreams? Do you dream of a better world? If there was ever a time that we needed to have a dream in our hearts to see a brighter day, it is now. The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. had big dreams. Ephesians 3:20 is our scripture reference today.

“Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.”

Paul’s words serve as a benediction asking God to cover His people. In this chapter, Paul wants fellow believers to experience the love of Christ. He dreams that through God’s power, they grow spiritually. Paul recognizes that God has given them the power to do great and glorious things. Paul knows that he is the least of all deserving of God’s goodness. He realizes that God has great things in store for him in spite of his inadequacies. Not only did he dream big, but he also carried out his dreams. It is utterly amazing what God can do for His people when their hearts and minds are open to receive the blessings that He has in store for them. I am grateful to God that I am a dreamer. I believe with all my heart that there are things that God wants to share with me. I am ready to receive them. It does not yet appear what we shall be. Keep on dreaming.
