Two weeks ago I had the privilege to preach the Sunday morning service at our church. Because I am usually accompanying my husband on his trips, I haven’t had the chance to speak to our congregation in quite a while.
The Lord had given me a word that I had been processing it for over a month, and it was the perfect time to release it. It was from 1 Corinthians 2:9 But as it is written: “ Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”
This scripture really resonated with me. No matter how big the dream or vision you have for your life, God’s plan for you is always bigger! This verse says that your eye hasn’t seen, your ear hasn’t heard, and you haven’t comprehended with your heart the things God has planned for you! Jeremiah 29:11 tells us For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
God’s thoughts toward you are good and His plan is to give you a future and a hope! Perhaps you’ve heard the scripture in Isaiah 55:9 that says So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.
His thoughts are always higher than your yours. That means that if you have a big dream, His dream for you is bigger. If you have a vision for your life, His vision far exceeds anything you could think on your own. Even the dreams you know are from God, are smaller than what He has in mind for You!
The best part is, you can’t disqualify yourself from fulfilling your purpose. No matter how you may think that you’re not good enough, that you have messed up or failed, God’s plans for you are not based upon your performance but upon His purpose. don’t believe me? Romans 11:29 says For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. Which means they are without repentance, which means He doesn’t take it back just because you are acting a little nutty!
Whatever He has called you to do, He has equipped you to do. Whatever His dream is for you, He has placed in you the ability to see that dream come to pass. Be encouraged today that God has big plans for you!
