When someone asks us that question, we generally tend to say, “Big. Really BIG” or something to that effect.
But do we really believe it? I mean, do we live it? Does our prayer life reflect it?
I think, more often than not, we place limits on God. We say, “God, could you…”; or worse, “God if you could just….”
When praying, have you ever started to ask God for something… and then stopped yourself because you suddenly think, “…it’s too much to ask for”?
Do you mean, too much to ask for yourself? (i.e. “I’m not worthy of it.”) Or, do you mean, too big for God? (“I can’t see even God making this happen.”) Well, let me just say, WRONG …and WRONG. Oh, I’ve found myself doing (and thinking) the same thing. But, I’ve also discovered the error in my thinking.
First, as a Christian, you are a child of God. With that in mind, read Psalm 84:11. “For the Lord God is a sun and shield; no good thing does He withhold from those whose walk is blameless.” (NLT) Does this mean you will get everything you think is good for you? Of course not. But, it does mean that as His redeemed (blameless) sons and daughters, we can fully expect to receive all that is permanently good for us; and, that which will help us serve Him and bring Him glory.
Second, do not set limits on the limitless. Because our lives and minds do have limits, it is easy to listen when Satan whispers, “…well it’s too late now. If only you had ….” Or, “…but that would take a miracle, and miracles don’t just happen for someone like you.” Well, about Satan, Jesus said, “…He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.” John 8:44, NLT.
So, look around you with your Kingdom Eyes. NOTHING is beyond the power of God. Worship your BIG God. Praise BIG. Pray BIG. And expect BIG results. Then give credit where credit is due!

Thank you Lord, for stretching my mind; and, showing me your beauty, power and majesty.
