How is your dream for 2022 coming along? Are you dreaming big dreams? Someone once said, "Show me the size of your dream, and I’ll show you the size of your God."
So what are you believing God for? Of course, no matter how big your dream is, God is bigger still! James, the brother of Jesus, reminds us, “You do not have because you do not ask God” (James 4:2)
Reminding ourselves of the Abrahamic covenant, that we are blessed to be a blessing, how does this fit into our dream for 2022?
Blessing is ours for the asking, but the only way to keep it is to give it away. In the words of the martyred missionary Jim Elliot, “He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.”
Acts 2:42-44 reminds us of the normal Christian life. "They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common."
Let's keep this in mind as we dream and prepare for 2022. Let our plans include being a blessing to others.
Have a good week.
