Dream Wild!

God can do anything, you know--far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! Ephesians 3:20 MSG

What is your wildest dream?  People's minds are programmed by fear for small thinking.  And a lot of people carry their small thinking right into their Christian life, never really reaching beyond what they can naturally expect to happen, never getting out on the edge where they need a miracle.

An army friend of mine was sitting on top of a building in Iraq and the enemy had just launched a missile straight at him and his men.  There was not enough time to take cover. Death was imminent.  The head of the missile flowered out (sorry I don't have the technical terms for this) and it caught an overhead wire, flipped the missile a 180 and sent it back to the enemy, destroying them. My friend was on the edge and needed a miracle. God is in the business of miracles.

The Christian life is about far, far more than just being moral, serving faithfully in the church, and going to heaven when you die.  Being a part of the New Rebellion is to live on the edge and expect God to show up!

Listen to what God says!  Think big. Dream Wild. Push your imagination to the brink as you consider how God might use your life to change the world.  Got it in your head?  Good, now double it.  No, multiply it times a hundred.  In fact, you can't even comprehend how significant your life is meant to be.

Okay, God, I'm willing to enlarge the smallness of my idea of who
You want to be in my life and what You want to do through me. 
I expect a miracle!
