Day 9 Job 12:8 “Speak to the earth, and it
will teach you.”
There is a difference between good ideas and God-ideas. We don’t get a vision from God by going to conferences. We might get some good ideas, but God-ideas are only revealed in the presence of God.
Everyone needs help and counseling of some sort at some point in their lives, but our biggest problems are only solved in the presence of God.
Planning is important. After all, failing to plan is planning to fail. But don’t just brainstorm; pray-storm! The best plans are birthed in the presence of God.
At some point in our lives, the best we can do isn’t good enough. Our best solutions, ideas, and efforts aren’t good enough. That’s when we need to hit our knees and trust God to do what only God can do. For prayer is the difference between the best you can do and the best God can do. And that’s a BIG difference!
If we hit our knees, the Holy Spirit will do the heavy lifting. If we hit our knees, the Holy Spirit will reveal things that can only be discovered in the presence of God. If we hit our knees, the Holy Spirit will give us God-ideas for our lives, family, business and ministries.
Our biggest problem is our small view of God. That is the cause of all lesser evils. And a high view of God is the solution to all other problems. Until we come to the conviction that God’s grace and God’s power knows no limits, we will draw small prayer circles. But once we embrace the unlimited power of God, we’ll draw ever enlarging circles around our God-given, God-sized dreams.
How big is your God?
