Eph 3:20 Now to him who is able to do exceeding abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us
AMP Eph 3:20 Now to him who, by (in consequence of) the [action of his] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out his purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]
Mark 9:23 “All things are possible to him who believes”
GOD WILL PERFORME FOR YOU. YOUR JOB IS TO BELIEVE!
YOU CAN’T BELIEVE BIG AND THINK SMALL
ROBERT FROST (POET) –
“SOME MEN SEE THINGS AS THEY ARE AND SAY, “WHY”? I DREAM OF THINGS THAT NEVER WERE AND SAY, “WHY NOT”.
PHILIPPIANS 4:13 – I CAN DO…
JOHN WOODEN A GREAT BASKETBALL COACH – “DON’T LET WHAT YOU CAN’T DO INTERFERE WITH WHAT YOU CAN DO”
GENERAL GEORGE PATTON SAID, “IF EVERYONE IS THINKING A LIKE THEN SOMEBODY ISN’T THINKING”
WITHOUT BIG THINKING YOU WON’T MAKE A LOT OF PROGRESS IN YOUR LIFE.
ONE ASPECT OF THINKING BIG IS THAT YOU START SEEING PEOPLE, PLACES AND THINGS BIGGER AND BETTER THAN THEY SEE THEMSELVES.
A BIG THINKER SEES BEAUTY WHERE OTHERS DON’T
A BIG THINKER SEES OPPORTUNITY WHEN OTHERS ONLY SEE PROBLEMS
A BIG THINKER SEE’S ANSWERS WHEN OTHERS ONLY SEE QUESTIONS OR DON’T EVEN KNOW THE QUESTION YET
OUR HEAVENLY FATHER IS THE ULTIMATE BIG THINKER
4 THINGS BIG THINKERS DO
- THEY ALWAYS CHECK WHAT THEY ARE ASSUMING.
DO I DO THE WORD? AM I OK? AM I DOING ALL I CAN?
YOU CAN’T SQUANDER TIME AND THEN EXPECT TO REAP A GREAT FUTURE.
IS THERE SOMETHING IN MY LIFE I HAVE ACCEPTED THAT IS NOT TRUE?
IS MY LIFE LINNING UP WITH THE WORD?
2. CHALLENGE TRADITION
THAT’S JUST THE WAY WE’VE ALWAYS DONE IT.
IT TAKES COURAGE TO CHALLENGE TRADITION…
3. NURTURE CURIOSITY – “WHAT COULD BE”
DIVINE DISCONTENTMENT NEEDS TO BE NURTURED PERSONALY, IN BUISNESS AND SPIRITUALLY
4. ALWAYS KEEP THINGS SIMPLE
Psa. 131:1 Lord, my heart is not haughty, nor my eyes lofty; neither do I exercise myself in matters too great or in things too wonderful for me.
BIG THINKERS DO COMPLIATED THINGS BUT THEY KEEP IT SIMPLE…
Habakuk 2:2 – MAKE IT PLAIN – SO YOU CAN RUN WITH IT… YOU CAN’T RUN WITH SOMETHING THAT IS COMPLICATED.
THINKING BIG IS A SPIRITUAL RESPONSIBILITY
