Big Dreams – “If it pleases the king.”
Scripture: Nehemiah 2:1-8
(Please note: If you are viewing video on a mobile phone you must scroll to bottom and enable “DESKTOP MODE”)
I have had HUGE dreams in my life. Some of them have come to pass and others, well, didn’t work out so well. But I won’t stop dreaming no matter what. My timing is most often not God’s timing, and just because there is a delay in the dream, it doesn’t mean my dream has been denied. In order to get to the big dream, Nehemiah had to take the first earthly step of obedience, asking the King for approval. I must keep increasing my faith through leaning into asking Big and then expecting intentional sacrifice. Nehemiah risked his life for the restoration of the wall, the dream of a restored people. May my faith be equal to the challenge ahead.
