“Christ in me, the hope of glory.”

“All things are possible for him who believes.”

“With God all things are possible.”

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

Do you believe it? Do you believe we can do all things through Christ? Do you believe all things are possible when we believe?

I believe it…in theory. I believe it theologically. Sometimes, I even believe it in my heart. But  far too often, I don’t live a life that demonstrates his limitless power and love.

I want to. I want to consistently live the things I say I believe. It is a work in process to “press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.” But I will press on. I press on because I’ve “tasted and seen that the Lord is good.” I press on because I’ve glimpsed his infinite glory and grace.

I got another glimpse this week. As Aeron and I were praying, for just a moment, we caught a glimpse of his limitlessness. We caught a glimpse of infinity. We caught a glimpse of eternity. We caught a glimpse of our infinite resources and infinite capacity in him.

We caught a glimpse of our infinite ability to dream with God. 

Maybe you’re afraid to dream because things haven’t worked out so well in the past. He knows your story. He knows you–better than you know yourself. Regardless of how the story began, regardless of how many chapters you’d like to edit or delete, it’s not over ’til it’s over. Wherever you are–whoever you are–it’s not too late to dream with God.  He wants us to dream with him because he knows exactly who he created us to be.

Do you know? If there were no limits, where would you be? What would you be doing? What do you long for when you’re not constrained by your past, your failures, your fears, or your own limited creativity and resources?

Maybe it’s time to find out. Maybe it’s time to lean into his heart. Maybe it’s time to lean into his abilities, his resources, his power.  Maybe it’s time to remove all limits. Maybe it’s time to blow up the boxes and stretch out your tent pegs. Maybe it’s time to soar…

To infinity and beyond.

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.

(Col. 1:27, Mark 9:23, Matt. 19:26, Phil. 4;13, Phil.3:12,  Psalm 34.8, Eph.3:20)

  1. Beautiful glimpses of our limitless God, Cindy. This question challenges me…what do you long for when you’re not constrained by your past, your failures, your fears, or your own limited creativity and resources? Must give some prayerful and honest reflection on this. Thanks for the way you constantly encourage and exhort to being willing to be stretched in our faith walk. Blessings to you. šŸ‘©ā€ā¤ļøā€šŸ‘©āœ

  2. Amen. I with you on the wanting to believe. Sometime I wonder if I’m getting better at this or worse. Actually, I want to believe in our limitless God like the four-year olds in our church! They just believe…no filters! šŸ™‚
    The poem and artwork reminded me of Isa. 40:31, “They shall mount up with wings like eagles…” Loved it.

    1. Four-year-olds are awesome! It would be so amazing if we could keep that sense of awe and wonder forever. I still visit there but I want to live there šŸ™‚ Funny that you mentioned Isaiah 40:31–somehow that verse didn’t make it into the devotion, but that is where we began when we started praying. Blessings to you Mel!
