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.
—Ephesians 3:20 (NLT)
Often, we don’t get the fact that at Calvary Jesus gave us everything we need to achieve what He knows we have the potential to accomplish. We limit Him in our thoughts. When we don’t allow the Holy Spirit to use the gift of our imagination to see beyond the blinders of our natural mind, we can’t see visions. We can’t, as our pastor said yesterday, “dream big.”
Do you dream big? God has a plan and a purpose for your life. Perhaps, you have had an idea and put it aside because it seemed unattainable. It looked that way because you thought it. And as you think, that is what you believe. Belief shapes who you think you are. Continually seeking to understand the gift of Grace Jesus imparted to you, will change the way you think. His work in you is not something that was left unfinished. His sacrifice completely changed you. You received the fruit of the Spirit. You gained His power. You won the mind of Christ. But for you to be transformed—to realize that you are a new person, your mind needs to be continually renewed by the power of the Holy Spirit. If you want to believe who He says you are, surrender to Him. Think outside the limits of your natural mind.
Our God is a God of infinite vision. Throughout the Bible, He revealed himself to man in dreams and visions. Jesus poured all the power of His heavenly father into you at Calvary. He poured all the wealth of His father’s dreams and visions into your spirit. “I will pour out my Spirit upon all people,” Joel prophesized long before Jesus changed everything. “Your sons and daughters will prophesy. Your old men will dream dreams, and your young men will see visions. In those days I will pour out my Spirit even on servants—men and women alike” (Joel 2:28-29, NLT).
His vision flows without ceasing. Open your mind to believe and receive. Dare to see with His eyes. Dare to hear with His ears. Dare to understand who He has created you to be. Dare to dream big. You are a new person in Jesus. The possibilities are endless.
