Recently God has pushed me to ask for some pretty outrageous things. I’m going to share one today though most of you will probably laugh and call me crazy.
One day when I felt God telling me to ask bigger, I thought about how I’m such a homebody, yet I LOVE to travel and really absorb different cultures. My dream is to travel all around the world someday, yet part of me cringes at the thought of being away from the depth of rest that comes from being at home.
So...in an attempt to ask for one of the biggest things I could humanly imagine, I dared to ask God for not only one home someday - but four! (At least)
I dream of someday having my own living space in LA, NYC, UK and NZ.
“Four houses God!? That’s pretty over the top!” I said laughing.
To which I sensed the quick reply:
“Well I should hope so! Look at Who you’re asking!”
Wow. I can’t wait to see how this dream comes true, and I challenge you to get “over the top” with your requests.
You may think your requests are limited by what you deserve, but that’s not true. It has nothing to do with you.
Your requests are only limited by your perspective of God’s love and generosity.
So? Is your God’s generosity pea-sized...or limitless?
The size of your requests is a sure sign of what you really believe about Him.
So if you need to, just ask Him to give you a more accurate perspective of His heart for you, and then give yourself permission to ask bigger!
It’s not greedy- it’s an accurate view of your true identity.
