Ephesians 3:20 (NIV)

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.

Worries can drive us crazy at times. Especially when those worries revolve around money. Think about how many great ideas there are in the world right now that will never actually evolve due to the lack of funds. It’s no different in the ministry field. So many great ideas and amazing plans to spread and share God’s love with others fall by the wayside due to financial reasons and worries. It’s so easy in today’s day and age to give up on our dreams and callings in life because we can’t see past our financial obstacles. While it is true that sometimes God closes doors to our ideas by making sure there are no funds available, more often than not we tend to be our own worst obstacles, because we don’t fully trust God to provide the necessary financial means to make our dreams happen. Here is what we need to remember: if God wants something to happen and we place our faith and trust in him to provide, he will provide. Dream big for God, dream big in the ways with which you can spread and share the good news of Jesus Christ with others. Never give up on God’s calling upon your life. Always trust in him to provide and he will do immeasurably more than all you ask or could have ever imagined (Eph. 3:20).

QUESTION 1. Do you have any big dreams about how God could be using your life right now if it weren’t for money holding you back? (Expound on those dreams)
QUESTION 2. Do you trust God with your money? (Explain) Reread Ephesians 3:20. Based on this scripture, do you feel God calling you to trust that he will provide for all of your needs? If so, how?
CHALLENGE: We challenge you to place your trust in God and trust that he is able to do immeasurably more than all you could ever ask or imagine of him.
