This morning, Max Lucado reminded me that it’s okay to dare to dream. Dare to dream what? To dream that God can do the impossible.
I read Exodus chapter 6 with this “dare to dream” thought in mind. I highly doubt that Moses dared to dream that the Israelite people would be set free in his lifetime. After all, he was just an ordinary man living an ordinary life. And then God showed up.
I love how Moses walked out God’s plan through obedience first. Yes, he balked at the idea of talking to the Pharaoh and even tried to slip out of being part of this monumental task by pointing out “I’m really not that great of a talker.” I’m sure he had visions of being humiliated in front of Pharaoh. God did the coolest thing… He gave Moses a helper – his brother, Aaron. Together, the brothers worked at the task God gave them.
Little did Moses know that the dream that millions of people dreamed would start with him. One ordinary man.
Dare to dream. Then take someone with you.
