I would remind you that He said in 2 Chronicles 16:9 "For the eyes of the Lord range to and fro throughout the whole earth seeking to show himself strong in behalf of him who's heart is His."
Mind you, these declarations are not our personal wish list, as much as we might like them to be and indeed some of them might make the list, but these are things that God has impressed upon each of us that He wants to accomplish with us in the year ahead. Psalm 37:4 says, "Delight yourself in the Lord and He shall give you the desires of your heart." To be certain, there will be a great deal of effort involved, for the Lord delights in us doing something to achieve them; Proverbs 16:9 states, "A man plans his way, but the Lord orders his steps." In other words, the Lord can direct, or redirect, a moving ship, but he can't do squat with a stationary rock that has no plans to go anywhere.
Let's be clear, no one has ever awakened and aspired to be mediocre. Each of us has a God given desire to make their lives count, to do something important and be celebrated as a result; we naturally want to achieve something note worthy, to make a mark. In order to that we have to begin to dream bigger than we ever have. It's a choice. In 30 years of doing inner healing, I have never had the Lord encourage anyone to do something average. It's a choice. He says in Ephesians 3:20 that He, " is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we can ask or think, according to the power that works in us." So He's not in the habit of doing just enough to get by and He doesn't have that in mind for you either. But dreaming boils down to making a specific choice to do so.
So I would challenge you to review all your New Year's resolutions to make sure that God doesn't want to do something bigger than what you had in mind. None of us wants to stand at the end of year with the realization that we missed the mark and could have done so much more with what we had. I think this is one of the interpretations of the parable of the talents; we have been given a certain amount of resources to accomplish something significant in life. Let's not bury them under a rock.
