Welcome to the Stirring Faith Podcast 

I’m really glad you stopped by. This week we are starting a new series: Truths Jesus Taught.

7 Ways to Fall in Love with God, Episode #405

Each episode will take a closer look at what Jesus actually taught and what it means for you and me in our day-to-day lives. The perfect place to begin is with a big one. What did Jesus believe was the most important commandment in terms of following God? When asked, he responded with loving God with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength. But honestly, sometimes we are not exactly clear on how that plays out in daily life or even where to begin. How do we fall in love with God? It’s not rocket science, but there are some things we can learn and do. There is no reason to stand far off when the expectation is that we come near. Scroll down to join us today for 7 Ways to Fall in Love with God.

Day 9: Dream Big Expectant Dreams

Bible Readings for Day 9: Dream Big Expectant Dreams–Genesis 18:14; Amos 7:14-15; Matthew 14:15-16; Mark 9:22-23; Ephesians 2:10.

Along this journey of seeking what it looks like to love God with my entire mind, there is one lesson I need continuously drilled into my hard head. As you read through the lesson today, please know that both the subject and the pointed presentation are directed at myself before anyone else. I need it this way. I wonder if you need it this way too.

Stop thinking so small! Stop talking yourself out of believing that God can accomplish the miraculous using your life. Take back the promises and methods of God you have rejected because you thought they couldn’t possibly be meant for you. Take them back by letting go!

God does not call us to small thinking. Small thinking results from a lack of exposure to the Word and a lack of ownership of the Word. Today, let the Word of God speak possibility and limitlessness over you. Maybe you have never given God the opportunity to dream with your life. Maybe you are afraid to take that next step for fear you will be disappointed. Maybe you feel insignificant, convinced small is just your size. Leave it behind. Small thinking limits who we become and what we are able to accomplish in the Lord.

The enemy knows this. He is constantly filling our minds with thoughts and ideas contrary to the Word, and even though they are opposed to the Word of God, these thoughts can make sense to me. They confine possibilities to what I can see. They confirm my own beliefs about my weaknesses. They keep me from loving the Lord with all my mind and restrain me from taking that next step of faith.

Sweet friend, it’s time for you and me to let go of small thinking. God calls His people to tasks and opportunities greater than we can imagine. Ponder the possible ramifications found in your reading today on your own life.

There is work to be done. Someone with just your personality, with your gifting, in your situation is exactly who God needs to accomplish His will (Ephesians 2:10). Anything He asks you to do is important, purposeful, and significant.
