I’m not interested in doing what’s expected. I don’t want to settle for what has gone before. The words ‘no’ or ‘it can’t be done’ is never the end of the story, but a spring board of opportunity that compels me to invent and imagine ways to reach into the land of dreams to make the impossible become possible.
So often we limit the height of our own ceilings. I’ve done it before. I decide before hand what is reasonable based on the past or other people’s opinions and set the boundaries of my limitations before I even take the first step.
When I used to work as a building designer, one of the first things I would do when in the early stages of design development was to set the height of the ceiling. The ceiling height was one of the most important factors in the overall look and feel of the house.
When it comes to houses it was the budget or aesthetics that determined the ceiling height, but when it comes to life we all too often make the mistake of setting our ceilings too low because of fear or pride. We look at the achievements and failures of others to determine the height of our own ceiling because we don’t want to risk looking like a fool.
But I still need more than just a pipe dream. I need a source of power that can set my dreams and desires on fire so that instead of gathering dust on the bookshelf the pages of my life can come alive and be filled with colour.
The good news is that the ultimate Designer is also the ultimate ceiling breaker!
‘[God] is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us’ – Ephesians 3:20 (NIV)
There is no ceiling too high or imagination too wild. As we plug our best thoughts, carefully crafted ideas and imaginations into the power of the Holy Spirit impossibilities become a reality.
Don’t set your limits too low or too early, but smash the ceilings through the power of the Holy Spirit!
