Big Dreams – Big Faith

God has called you to BIG Dreams…
Here’s some encouragement from Terri Savelle Foy to help you get jump started into the dream of a lifetime!

God has called you to dream big dreams. Every God-given dream requires faith in order to reach it. So, how can you determine if your faith is BIG enough for your dreams?

.
In Matthew 9:28, two blind men asked Jesus to give them their sight. Jesus responded by asking them, “Do you believe I’m able to do this?” Jesus put the responsibility back on them. Without hesitation they answered, “Yes, Lord!”
Before you set out to do something with your faith, ask yourself this question: Do I really believe God is able to do this? If you can’t immediately answer “Yes, Lord!” You’re not ready.

.
“Be it unto you according to your faith!” (Matthew 9:29)

.
So, how do you develop your faith level to match your dream level? It’s been said that in order to have something different, you must be willing to DO something different.

.
We’ve all been given the measure of faith! (Romans 12:3) Just like we all were born with the same amount of muscles. The only difference between my muscles and those of the Power Team is that their muscles have been developed more than mine.
It works the same way in the spirit.

The more your faith grows and develops, the more you can handle. That’s why you see some people believing for millions of dollars and others believing for gas money. One has developed their faith to a greater degree.

How does faith grow?

The #1 method God has given us to increase our faith is found in Romans 10:17. “Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.” Faith will GROW as you spend time hearing God’s Word. That’s easy. Every time you listen to a faith-building message, your faith grows. But just as faith comes by hearing, faith also GOES by not hearing.

.
If you want FAITH for BIG DREAMS, you have to turn it up a notch! “I don’t have time, Terri.” Yes, you do. The average American watches 6 hours of TV each day! By the time you are 60 years old, you will have wasted 15 years of your life sitting in front of a television. That’s a quarter of your life! What if you eliminated just one hour of TV each day? That would create 365 hours of additional time each year. To do what? Build your faith. Grow. Prepare for your dreams.

.
The average person commutes 30 minutes each way to and from work. In 5 years, that’s 1,250 hours in the car or enough to give yourself the equivalent of a college education! We have the time to build our faith by hearing the Word, we just have to seize the opportunities.

.
Once I began to make a habit of listening to faith-building messages every single day, that’s when I began to think bigger. Reading faith-inspiring books every week enlarges your ability to believe for the impossible. God has so much for you to do, but you can’t do it until your faith is developed to such a degree that you simply believe all things are possible. I believe you can tell a person’s FAITH LEVEL by the DREAMS they are pursuing! Your faith level will match your dream level. If God’s called you to do some big things, you need big faith!
