William Carey the father of modern missions once said, “Expect great things from God, attempt great things for God.” This is one of my favorite quotes. It speaks of the deep desire we have for significance, and the great need we have for God. Many times I have come home to my family after a long day, greeted by their hugs and their questions, “How was your day?” … “Are you hungry for dinner? …and often times, “What fun thing are we going to do tonight?” The last question is a lot to live up to. Why do they ask the last question? … Because they remember that we have a history of doing fun things. Our prayers should be like that, asking our Father in heaven, “What great thing are we doing today?” We do well to pray this way because God has a history of doing great things. Know your God. As Charles Haddon Spurgeon once said, “There is nothing little in God.” God wants to bless you in great ways, because He wants to use you in great ways to bring glory and honor to His name. Ask Him, keep yourself available to Him, and obey Him… you will not be disappointed. He has said, “Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.” – Jeremiah 33:3 Selah!
