What Faith Does to Your Dreams
By Rick Warren

“Glory be to God, who by his mighty power at work within us is able to do far more than we would ever dare to ask or even dream of—infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, or hopes.” Ephesians 3:20 (TLB)

Through faith, God-given dreams become reality. Nothing happens until dreams and faith start working together! 

The Bible is full of people who had God-given dreams. Abraham dreamed of being the father of a great nation. Moses dreamed of setting God’s people free. Joseph dreamed of saving a nation and his own family. Throughout Scripture, all kinds of people were inspiring dreamers, including, Daniel, Paul, and David. 

Ephesians 3:20 says, “Glory be to God, who by his mighty power at work within us is able to do far more than we would ever dare to ask or even dream of—infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, or hopes” (TLB).

Now, if there were ever a “blank check” verse in the Bible, that’s it. God is able to do far more than you would dare to ask. What are you afraid to ask God for? He can do far more than you can even dream of.

I don’t know about you, but I’m a pretty big dreamer. However, dreams are nothing compared to what God has planned for my life. God says, “Rick, think of the greatest thing you could ever dream of, the greatest thing you think I could do in your life. Guess what? I can top that.”

If you were to cry when you arrived in heaven, those tears would simply be for all the things you could have done if you had just believed God a little bit more. To me that would be hell—being shown everything I could have accomplished and become as a husband, father, and pastor if I had just believed God a little bit more.

But there aren’t any tears in heaven, and God gives you everything you need right now to accomplish what he has planned for you. So dream big about your relationships, marriage, family, and career. Your faith can turn those dreams into reality. 

God is able to do far more than you would dare to ask or even dream of.
