“He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion.” Philippians 1:6 NIV 

Many of us have a God-sized dream within us, but we’re so afraid of failing we never even try. We can’t imagine how it could possibly happen. So we don’t act on it. Here is a challenge: don’t worry about the outcome. That isn’t your responsibility. “Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” You simply need to act on it. It doesn’t have to be something big; in fact, it will probably be something small. Everything that’s big starts small. But if you do little things like they are big things, God will bless them and use them. A.W. Tozer said, “A low view of God is the cause of a hundred lesser evils. A high view of God is the solution to ten thousand temporal problems.” Note how Paul prayed for the believers at Ephesus: “To make you intelligent and discerning in knowing him personally, your eyes focused and clear, so that you can see exactly what it is he is calling you to do, grasp the immensity of this glorious way of life he has for his followers, oh, the utter extravagance of his work in us who trust him – endless energy, boundless strength!” (Ephesians 1:18-19 MSG). We can’t imagine what God is capable of. This means we can’t imagine what we’re capable of if we give God control of our lives. His power initiates a chain reaction. And with His energy working within us, we can accomplish all He has called us to do.
