What If…Part 3

What would life be like if we took out the “if factor”?

Think about the following questions.

Do we limit the power of God by the boundaries we create in our own mind?

Do we believe God has the power to do far beyond all we ask or think according to the power that works within us?

What do we hinder God from doing when we place limitations on Him?

What could God do through you and me as leaders if our faith was greater?

When we believe that God can and will accomplish His purpose, in spite of us, maybe we would stop thinking small and start thinking big!

Potential…Part 3

What steps should we take to reach our potential. Here are a few suggestions:

First and foremost, do NOT limit God. Several accounts in scripture (Numbers 11:16-23; 1 Samuel 14:6-15) indicate the unlimited power of our God. He is not limited by physical space or time. We must never think that God is unable to do something because we are unwilling to do it.

Secondly, we need to start thinking “BIG.” One of the greatest hindrances to growth is we think too small. We need to expand our vision and remove the boundaries in our minds that limit us and start thinking BIG!

Passion to Think Bigger

What could happen if leaders knew how to think big.

Nelson Mandela said, “There is no passion to be found playing small — in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.”

Settling for less than what we are capable of limits what God is capable of doing through us…if we only let Him.

We often believe God will not do something because we are convinced we cannot do it.

There must be a passion that is driven by and for greatness, a greatness that is only measured by the power of God to work in amazing and powerful ways.

Think Big

Paul highlights God’s power to think in the realm beyond all we ask or think in his letter to the church at Ephesus.

Like most leaders, we tend to think too small. We can fabricate a number of reasons, but in the end, we place God in a box where we think He will not do something because we are convinced we can’t do it.

We need to stop limiting God and start thinking big, at least bigger than we have in the past.

What would we attempt to do if we knew we could not fail? Think about it.

Passion for Thinking Big…

Imagine what would happen if leaders thought big. The passion that drives greatness can be nothing short of global.

Nelson Mandela once said, “There is no passion to be found playing small––in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.”

Far too often, we place limitations on what God can do through us, because we have settled for less than our capabilities.

Avoid the “grasshopper syndrome” demonstrated by the spies in Numbers 13:33. The way they saw themselves directly influenced the way others saw them. Think about it! 

Leaders must not fall prey to this limited, small-thinking mindset. Think Big!
