“With God’s help we will do mighty things.”
Psalms 103:13 (NLT)
In his book, “Good To Great,” Jim Collins introduced us to the term BHAG. This stood for “Big Hairy Audacious Goals.” Companies that went from good to being great had larger than life goals. Stretch goals that shaped a company into a driving economic success. Thousands of years earlier David spread the same philosophy among his countrymen. God is the God of the impossible and we do Him no service by thinking small. When Jesus, who lived a life full of miracles and wonders, was about to leave this earth, said that He had to leave so He could be replaced by the Holy Spirit. Jesus told His disciples that the Holy Spirit would guide us and lead us and then He made this incredible promise, “I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father. You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father. Yes, ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it!” Today, examine your heart. What have you asked God to do? What BHAG could God have for your church; your company; your family; or your life? Join David and believe, “with God’s help we will do mighty things.”
Almighty God, it’s not about me. It’s not about my fame or what I can accomplish. It is about Your glory, Your will and all the healing that is needed in this world. I ask for big audacious goals for Your kingdom. What is it You would have me do? Guide me, Lord, and help me join You in Your mighty works. I pray this Jesus, in Your name.
TODAY’S AFFIRMATION & MEDITATION
With God’s help I will do mighty things
Come quietly before God and sense His majesty. Feel His wonderful love for you. As you sit before Him, He calls you by name. Hear Him ask you to serve Him, to trust Him for great things. You reply, “Yes, Lord, here am I.” Spend a few moments in His presence and ask Him, “Lord, what do You want me to do?” Pray, “Lord, use me, help me join You in the mighty work You are already doing.” Affirm out loud, “With God’s help I will do mighty things.”
