TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
You have a purpose and destiny for your life. It’s time to start dreaming big, God kind of dreams! Your past will only hold you back. Move forward in the power of the Holy Spirit!
YOU’RE NOT GOING THAT WAY!
It’s the nature of the unredeemed mind to always be looking back. Jesus mentioned this when He spoke of Lot’s wife – even He didn’t mention her name, which is probably not a good sign for her.
I don’t want to be like her. I want to look forward. I want to go further and dream big dreams.
Dave Crone, from the Mission in Vacaville, California, says the Pharisees were the dream killers of Jesus’ day. He’s exactly right. Jesus called them out on it when He told them they loved their rules more than they loved God.
Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of the bones of the dead and everything unclean. In the same way, on the outside you appear to people as righteous but on the inside you are full of hypocrisy and wickedness. – Matthew 23:27-28
Ouch! So if you see somebody today doing everything within their power to put you in a religious box, know they are the very same kind of person who nailed Jesus to a board and hung Him up naked to die. For your sake, run from these people. For our sake, run them over!
While I believe without apology the church of Jesus Christ is the only boat afloat, I also believe many of us on board don’t understand the heart of the Captain. He, like His Kingdom, is progressive. Who knew? His Kingdom is without end. There are no limitations.
As long as people make methods and the function of the church their priority and focus, they are missing the boat. They are missing a relationship with a loving, powerful and just heavenly Father. They are missing the chance to love other people into the Kingdom.
Be a person who doesn’t look back. Let Jesus propel you forward into a life of adventure and responsibility. Let Him weave your dreams and His dreams for you together into a life that changes the world and brings lost people into eternity.
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO DREAM BIG. LET JESUS REVEAL HIS DREAMS FOR YOU AND GO AFTER THE GREAT BIG LIFE HE HAS FOR YOU!
