Think Big

Think big…because God is a big God.

“Then King David said to the whole assembly: ‘My son Solomon, the one whom God has chosen, is young and inexperienced. The task is great, because this palatial structure is not for man but for the LORD God.’” 1 Chron 29:1 (NIV)

Have you ever been invited to participate in a God-sized task? Maybe you are facing something right now that is God-sized. God enjoys bringing us into His story. He is not limited by our limitations. We spend so much time evaluating ourselves in relation to others. We feel inadequate or unqualified and wonder if God could really use us. God specializes in using those deemed useless by the world’s standards. We bring pleasure to God when we simply say, “Lord, I’m Yours! Use me!”

God doesn’t need you to do something great for Him. Actually, He is big enough to fulfill His plan with or without you. The beauty of God’s love is that He chooses to enable you to do something great for Him. Will you make yourself available for God’s use?

I would have never dreamed that God wanted me to surrender to preach. Yet, on February 23, 1986, God allowed me to get involved in a Jet Ski accident that almost took my life. While struggling to stay alive in the intensive care unit, God called me to preach. I was only sixteen years old.

Think big…because God is a big God. He can do something great through you regardless of your age or life stage. Are you willing to make yourself available to God for His glory?

Pursuing God,
