Then the Lord replied: “Write down the revelation and make it plain on tablets so that a herald may run with it.” – Habakkuk 2:2
God speaks to us in such unique and intimate ways. He can get your attention by any means necessary, but the real question is whether you’re paying attention. When God seeks to shift you, He almost always begins by stirring our heart and agitating your comfort. The next thing He’ll do is give you a glimpse of where He is taking you next. Most of us ignore the signs, tugs, and recurring messages. We say we want to be used by God, but then we avoid all situations disrupting the predictability that makes us feel safe and secure. But to believe bigger is to ask God for a bigger vision and to believe that you’re worthy of more. Sometimes we confuse the desire to experience more with being greedy and discontent. Balance is important, but desire is also divine. Ecclesiastes 1:7 says, “All streams flow into the sea, yet the sea is never full.” You want more because God designed you for more in His limitless image. He won’t force you into it. God gives a bigger vision to those ready to make bigger decisions.
What’s the big vision you have for your life? Embrace the fact that God wants you to dream without limits. Write down your vision – what you desire to experience, who you want to impact, and how you want to glorify God.
Lord, there are no limits in heaven. Since heaven lives within me, take the limits off my life, my mind, and my eyes. Show me new places and prepare me for new provisions as I embrace Your bigger mission and vision. AMEN.
