It is very easy to drift in to a small limited life where we simply go through the motions and live within our natural limits and abilities. Our challenge is to live by faith – living beyond ourselves. God calls us to live by faith and not by sight. This means being willing to join Peter and get out of the boat with no guarantee of success but a guarantee of God’s favour and blessing.
And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
Three principles to live large:
1) Living Large is living a life that is not possible when relying only upon your natural abilities.
2) Living Large is living beyond what you can see.
3) To live large you have to step away from your safety net. If you don’t then it cannot be called faith.
Ask yourself: how large am I living?
Remind yourself that we serve a God who is able!
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
