Circles Around Dreams and Fears
“Dream Big” – John 6:1-13 – Pastor Mike Tessendorf
Ephesians 3:20 “God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we can ask or imagine.”
As big as you can dream – God is able to do above and beyond that
John 6:6 “He asked this only to test him, for he already had in mind what he was going to do.”
God was at work behind the scenes, to change things from what they were to what He wanted them to be.
John 6:8-9 “Another of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, spoke up, 9 “Here is a boy with five small barley loaves and two small fish, but how far will they go among so many?”
God sees what you can’t see and God knows what you don’t know.
John 6:12-13 “When they had all had enough to eat, he said to his disciples, “Gather the pieces that are left over. Let nothing be wasted.” So they gathered them and filled twelve baskets with the pieces of the five barley loaves left over by those who had eaten.
When you take what you have in your hand and place it in God’s hand – He multiplies it, exceedingly and abundantly.
John 6:11 “Jesus then took the loaves, gave thanks, and distributed to those who were seated…”
Prayer is key that unlocks the door to God doing exceedingly abundantly above.
Remember that when you pray someone who sees what you can’t see and knows what you don’t know is already at work.
