The age of average is over. Passion fuels the rocket, a big dream, points the rocket to its ultimate destination.
In Genesis 22 an angel of the Lord tells Abraham that his descendants will be as numerous as the stars in the sky and sand at the shores edge.
In Matthew 16, Jesus asks Simon, soon to be called Peter, “Who do you say I am?” Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.” And then Jesus declares, “and on you I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.”
By far the most illustrious story comes from Luke chapter 1 where an angel of the Lord comes to Mary and shares, “You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.”
How about that for a set of big dreams for the people of God
to DREAM BIG!
What is it that you dream about? What is it that you hope for yourself? What is God calling you into and what dream has God placed in your head?
The sacred texts of Old and New Testaments are loaded with stories of dreaming big. In fact the dreams are so big that God’s people can hardly apprehend them.
The 2017 WSYG will use the theme of DREAM BIG as a way to peek into the way God is calling out to us and then thru us calling us to act.
Why should you attend this event with this theme?
Far too frequently the dreams we have are squashed:
by the voices of others,
by a lack of self-confidence,
by social expectations,
by racial divides,
by a lack of imagination.
Time to stop allowing the voices of others to dictate the dreams you have.
Time to start relying more on the influence, grace, and power of God to help your dreams into reality.
After all…God planted those big dreams there to begin with.
