God gives big dreams

August 19, 2005

Just spent two days at a retreat. This morning the speaker said, “If your dream is do-able it is not big enough”. This was in the context of talking about how God always calls us to do things that we can’t do in our own strength.

We looked at the story of Caleb and Joshua and the ten other spies (whose names no one remembers). These ten spies reported, “we seemed like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and we looked the same to them” (Numbers 13:33). Yet 40 years later Rahab told the new spies, “I know that the Lord has given this land to you and that a great fear of you has fallen on us, so that all who live in this country are melting in fear because of you. We have heard how the Lord dried up the water of the Red Sea for you when you came out of Egypt … “(Joshua 2:9-10).

We need to remember that when we step out in faith the devil is melting in fear because of us.
