We are going to need a confident heart, like David had in the psalm below to keep reaching for these dreams:
7My heart is confident in you, O God;
my heart is confident.
No wonder I can sing your praises!
8Wake up, my heart!
Wake up, O lyre and harp!
I will wake the dawn with my song.
9I will thank you, Lord, among all the people.
I will sing your praises among the nations.
10For your unfailing love is as high as the heavens.
Your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.
11Be exalted, O God, above the highest heavens.
May your glory shine over all the earth.
How high does the love of God reach? Today I want to encourage all of us, his word says it reaches to the clouds.
As I prayed through this verse today, God reminded me of how BIG he is.
He reminded me to dream far up, BIG DREAMS.
He reminded me to REACH for the stars.
I want His GLORY to SHINE over all the earth.
When David pinned these words, he was hiding in the cave from King Saul. God soon sent 400 men to come and fight with him. David could have stayed hidden away, praying small prayers for God to simply keep him hidden and help him live a quiet, safe life in the wilderness.
But God had other plans.
And David knew he had a BIG GOD.
I want to look up into the sky and be reminded that His love and faithfulness are as HIGH as the heavens and REACH to the clouds.
I want to believe he has BIG PLANS for me, because he does.
And he has BIG PLANS for you, too.
Sometimes those plans seem small to us, but they have a large, immeasurable impact in God’s eyes.
After adopting our daughter from Africa, I came to remember that the day to day mothering and homemaking in my home was just as important to God as the orphan rescuing.
What dreams are God stirring in your heart? Is your motive to shine His GLORY over all the earth, and to spread his love? Then pray about it, and go for it!
Keep looking up to the heavens, remembering his high love for you reaches places you cannot imagine!
