God’s Vast Design

God’s Vast Design

Inspiration MinistriesBy Inspiration Ministries1 Minutes

The Biblical account of creation makes it clear that God’s design was vast. “Swarms of living creatures” overflowed the waters (v. 20 NASB). Massive quantities of birds and an unimaginable number of created creatures filled the earth.

We see here that God thought in big terms. And He made clear that He wanted human beings to have the same attitude. He instructed people to be “fruitful and multiply,” to increase what they had been given (Genesis 2:28).

We become so overwhelmed with our limits that we forget just how big God is. Based on our own limited understanding and experiences, we tend to limit Him, too.

The Bible encourages us to realize God wants us to grasp just how big His vision for the universe, for creation, and for our individual lives is. Nothing is impossible for Him! The Bible reminds us that He rewards people who act with faith.

As you think about your challenges, do not limit God. The Bible says, “nothing will be impossible with God” (Luke 1:37). That is still true today.

As you begin this new year, remember not to limit God in your prayers or your expectations. Put your faith into action and believe Him for tremendous things. Be bold to dream substantial dreams. Dare to conceive of ideas that are in keeping with His boundless imagination. And live in keeping with the vastness and scope of His creation.
