Dream Big

"'Let's go across to see those pagans,' Jonathon said to his armor bearer.  'Perhaps the LORD will help us, for nothing can hinder the LORD.  He can win a battle whether He has many warriors or only a few!'  'Do what you think is best,' the youth replied.  'I'm with you completely, whatever you decide'" (1 Samuel 14:6-7).

So many people have fallen short of greatness because they haven't been able to see past the obstacles.  People need to realize that God can use the unexpected to do the unthinkable.  He calls us to do extraordinary things - some that may not even make sense.

Jonathan was passionate about what needed to be done.  His passionate and confident leadership helped to keep his armor bearer at his side.  Jonathan knew where he was going and wasn't afraid of what he might face or what it might cost.  His armor bearer declared, that no matter what it might cost him personally, he was with his master heart and soul.  He believed in the dream, because Jonathan helped him to see it, in spite of the fact that it was only the two of them that were to be fighting for a victory that appeared to be incomprehensible!

Don't be afraid to dream!  Realize that God has called you to do amazing things.  He created you with a hope and a dream, a purpose and a plan.  Just focus on Him for direction.  You need to be confident in where you're going and be unafraid of what you will face, and ready face the cost.  God will never take you to where He's not able to take you through.  Trust Him.  Follow Him.  Dream BIG in Him.  See the results come to pass because of Him.
