A faithful man shall abound with blessings: by he that maketh haste to be rich shall not be innocent. Proverbs 28:20
How do we accomplish a God-sized assignment? One bite at a time! I don’t know of anyone who can understand the totality of a God-sized assignment, let alone do it, with just one enormous bite. First of all, who can open their minds wide enough to conceive all what God wants to do in their lives all at once. Revelation knowledge evolves over time.
For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, says the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts. (Isaiah 55:8-9 AMP)
Secondly, if the total picture could be seen in a glance, it would be overwhelming and would leave many in a motionless state of fright. God knowing that large chucks of information would choke the mission, will give us manageable bites that won’t overload our faith.
And finally, if a God-sized assignment could be digested in one gulp, we might erroneously assume we didn’t need God’s help. On the contrary, an out of reach dream should bring us closer to God.
When God gives you a big vision, it’s not too much to achieve, or He wouldn’t have given it to you. However, you do have to listen and obey His directions when attempting something of this magnitude.
For example, timing is important. It’s okay to have that big dream, but if you step out too soon, you will probably hit a wall and become discouraged. On the other hand, you can’t be too afraid to move when God tells you the time is now. The key is to take small steps of faith according to God’s timetable.
God’s calculated bites won’t over challenge your faith.
Following God’s instructions will gnaw things down to manageable bites, and before you know it, you are well into achieving your dreams. Just keep on nibbling, and pecking, and biting. . .
You can do that God-sized assignment!
