This is a battleship...it is large...very largeWhen my brother and I were kids and we would start asking the age-old question: What if...?
What if I get sick? What if my teacher hates me? What if I don't like it? etc
My dad would always retort with this:
"What if a battleship fell on your head?"
That usually got us quiet...because even though the answer to that is quite simple (you would die, in case you were wondering) it would remind us that "what if" is a tricky question, and usually pointless.
But today my mind was racing with thoughts and ideas, and many of them centered around things God could do...and I realized, the "what if" question could be very inspiring!
What if God brought complete healing to my family?
What if God cured my disease?
What if He provided all our support in a month?
What if I saw an entire nation saved in a day?
Thinking like that excites you! Those questions drive you to God, to ask Him for the impossible, to dream!
God loves a dreamer, He created us so that in our minds we can escape the "rules" we live in. It took dreamers to imagine going to space, or flying, or communicating with people half-way around the world instantly. And those dreams aren't even close to the amazing ones God has in store for us!
So the next time you find yourself in a slump, like a battleship has landed on your head and is keeping you down...start asking God the what if's, and dare to dream!
