Believe God for greater things

4 May 2024 ‘He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion.’ Philippians 1:6 NIV

Many of us have a God-sized dream within us, but we’re so afraid of failing at it that we never try reaching for it. We can’t imagine how it could possibly happen. So, we don’t act on it. Here’s a challenge: don’t worry about the outcome. That isn’t our responsibility, but God’s. ‘Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.’ We simply need to act on our God-given desires and dreams. It doesn’t have to be something big; in fact, it’ll often be something small. Everything that’s big starts small. But if we do little things with the enthusiasm we’d normally reserve for big things, God will bless them and use them. A.W. Tozer said, ‘A low view of God is the cause of a hundred lesser evils. A high view of God is the solution to ten thousand temporal problems.’ This is how Paul prayed for the believers at Ephesus: ‘To make you intelligent and discerning in knowing him personally, your eyes focused and clear, so that you can see exactly what it is he is calling you to do, grasp the immensity of this glorious way of life he has for his followers, oh, the utter extravagance of his work in us who trust him – endless energy, boundless strength!’ (Ephesians 1:18-19 MSG). We can’t imagine what God’s capable of. This means we can’t imagine what we’re capable of if we give God control of our lives. His power sparks off a chain reaction. And with His energy working within us, we can accomplish all that He’s called us to do.
