The other day I was with my four-year-old son in the yard when we noticed an airplane zooming overhead.
“If you could fly anywhere in the whole world, where would you go?” I asked.
Without hesitating, he cried gleefully, “McDonald’s!”
I laughed, but realized that because of his limited experiences, that probably was the greatest vacation destination he could imagine at the time.
And then I began to re-evaluate my own dreams.
Does God shake His head and laugh when I tell him about the dreams I’m clinging to? To me they sound thrilling, sure, but to Him, do they sound as exciting as a trip to McDonald’s?
Ephesians 3:20 says that God is able to do “far beyond anything we could ask or even dream of.” That tells me that He has plans for us that are infinitely greater than anything we can fathom…and here we are whining about a Happy Meal.
Whatever dreams you’re holding fast to, consider praying for His will to be accomplished in your life. For while we’re dreaming of McDonald’s, He wants to show us the galaxies…
