Going Deeper with the Word – Dream Big

When we walk with God and seek His will for our lives, is it still ok to have hopes and dreams? How can we dream big while also asking God to order our steps. 🤔 Let's discuss.

Welcome to “Going Deeper with the Word.” In this segment, we welcome people of all backgrounds, religious or not, to review the Word of God. The Word of God provides guidance, direction, and instructions for living our lives and walking with God. 

Today, we examine how God’s Word provides clear guidance and direction about dreaming big.

Let’s review examples of God’s Word that can lead and guide our steps and back up the principles we learned in today’s message. I will be reading scripture today from the Amplified Bible.

If you are watching this message online, we invite you to share your comments as we review each verse.

Here is our first verse:

And we know [with great confidence] that God [who is deeply concerned about us] causes all things to work together [as a plan] for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to His plan and purpose.

Romans 8:28 AMP





In this verse, we are reminded of the importance of seeking out God’s purpose in our lives. We learn that if we love God and seek out His purpose for us, God will cause things to work together for His plans. As we touched on today, seeking out God’s purpose does not suggest that we abandon our hopes and dreams. Instead, let’s bring our hopes and dreams before God but ask Him to prioritize revealing His purpose for us. God’s purpose may lead us on a journey that differs from our dreams. However, this path will likely be in harmony with the unique gifts that God has planted within us. By embracing these gifts, we can find joy and fulfillment as if we had achieved our original dreams.

Have you been led to a purpose in life that you did not expect? What are the gifts that you know are planted within you that strengthen your purpose in life?

 

Let’s have a look at another verse.

Many plans are in a man’s mind, But it is the Lord’s purpose for him that will stand (be carried out).

Proverbs 19:21 AMP








Here is another verse that touches on the importance of seeking out God’s purpose for our lives. It reveals that we can plan, but we should primarily focus on seeking and carrying out God’s plan. Often, we may find ourselves pursuing a plan without seeking out God’s will for that plan. Before we get knee-deep into our plan learn, we should consult with God beforehand

Have you ever had a goal or a dream that you spent hours, days, or even more to organize and plan? Did you consult with God when you pursued the plan? If not, why not? If yes, how do you think God’s presence was made known in your plans?

Let’s look at one last verse.

And the one on whom seed was sown on the good soil, this is the one who hears the word and understands and grasps it; he indeed bears fruit and yields, some a hundred times [as much as was sown], some sixty [times as much], and some thirty.”

Matthew 13:23 AMP


‬ ‭




In this verse, Jesus Christ shares a parable referring to those who understand the importance of following and adhering to God’s Word. He explains that not only do these individuals bear fruit from their actions, but he goes on to explain the exponential potential of simply seeking out God’s instructions. In the same way, we can infer that seeking out God’s plans, even amidst the dreams and goals we may have in our hearts, may yield an outcome that is exponentially more than we could have ever achieved on our own.

Have you had a situation in which you recognize following God’s will and plans benefited you exponentially more than if you had followed your original plan without including God?
