God-sized goals

Jesus replied, ‘What is impossible with men is possible with God.’ Luke 18:27
God-sized goals are meant to challenge our thinking and further our faith. These Holy Spirit inspired ideas are crafted by our Lord to spur us on to good works and transformational living. God-sized goals make us uncomfortable at times, because they always go beyond what we see in our own resources. They are not guaranteed to happen, but they position us to pray more and believe in God better.
It is through prayerful planning and implementation that gigantic goals move from mere possibility to a more certain probability. Huge objectives are a hedge against mediocrity and a prod toward perfection. God-sized goals are given to govern our thinking and determine our time, so we are intentional and focused on His big picture. Otherwise we drift around without a rudder of reality, destined for disappointment.
Best of all God-size goals get us to God. It is prayer and planning with significant progress that moves us from the realm of possibility to the place of probability. In most cases it is one individual’s passion and focus that proves catalytic to the creation and execution of the goals. The leader looks failure in the eye and extinguishes it by faith, wisdom, hard work, and the power of the Spirit which are all wrapped around a skilled and unified team.
Christ-centered possibilities far outweigh man-centered probabilities. Perhaps you need to get away in solitude for several days to ask the Lord to sear your soul with His goals. Think outside the box of small belief, for the Lord is unlimited in His abilities and resources. God-size goals arrest your attention, adjust your attitude and accelerate your actions.
So prayerfully set great goals and He will grow your character in the process while influencing others for His glory. Trust Him to teach you the way; to show you with eyes of faith way beyond the bounds of your experience, for His plan will prevail. The Bible says, “I know you can do all things; no plan of yours can be thwarted” (Job 42:2).
Our Prayer:  Father help us to see each day the limitless possibilities we have in you and what you have called us to do.  Allow our faith to grow to the size of the vision that you have for our lives and the purpose of service you have called us to Amen.
