I had a meeting this morning that started with a moment of imagination. In that one moment, however brief, I saw what could be. I saw where things could go if God moved, and if we really let Him take hold of us, of our lives, and of our time. It would change a lot of things, and it would require a lot of adjustment, but it would so incredible to see!
The possibilities are a bit daunting. Our current ideas would no longer be entirely adequate, our resources would need to expand. But isn't that what God is all about? Isn't He constantly bringing us to places where we need to stretch ourselves and our beliefs in His ability to provide?
As soon as I embraced the possibility of what the future could hold, the ideas flooded in. Sure, things would be different than they are now, but they wouldn't be too different. The reality is that, when we follow God, when we allow Him to grow us, we can trust that He will also provide us with the space and skills we need to accommodate that growth. Why should we limit ourselves to what we have when God may be waiting to do so much more?
What might God be calling you to imagine? What more does He want to do through you?
Ephesians 3: 20-21
No to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen.
