So I, the prisoner for the Lord, appeal to you to live a life worthy of the calling to which you have been called [that is, to live a life that exhibits godly character, moral courage, personal integrity, and mature behavior—a life that expresses gratitude to God for your salvation], (Ephesians 4:1 AMP)
You know all those ideas swirling around in your head? The ones you think could never happen? The dreams that seem impossible? The visions that don’t go away even after a few years? The ideas that produce the most passion in you? Those are God dreams, and they will never die. No matter how many times you reply with, I can’t do this. This will never happen, the dreams/ideas will stay. And they will eat you alive until you take a step and reach out to grab them.
Be careful, though, some people will not understand. They will question you. They will doubt you. They will talk about your big ideas. It’s actually biblical. Joseph woke up from the most fantastic dreams, and in his immaturity, he couldn’t wait to tell someone. So, he told all of his brothers. You know what happened next. He got sold and put in prison, and there he got a dose of maturity. Then he got out of prison and was in charge of the one thing his family needed: food. He turned his brothers’ wrath and persecution into a great picture of forgiveness and faith. (Genesis 37-39)
