Small Steps, Big Dreams: The Real Breakthrough

“Surely I could never do something that big, God.”

That thing you dream of is not accidental. That passion inside of you is not random. When your dream is rooted in God’s call for your life, you can’t let it go, because He chose you for it.

We desperately want to experience the breakthrough of our life — the big day we drop everything and finally leap into our dreams.

Yet, sometimes, our dreams seem out of our reach. Too far-fetched. Unrealistic. Impossible, even. 

That’s because pursuing a God-given dream is not as simple as one big leap.

I’m learning this —

The real breakthrough is not the end-goal, but rather, the small, obedient steps that take us there.

Faithful movement. 

There is great value in the small steps, and each should be celebrated.

Jeff Goins said it best: 

“Don’t take the leap, build a bridge to your dreams.”

God calls us to be faithful in the small things.

With every step, we learn. With every step, we grow in faith. With every step, our hope strengthens.

There is purpose in the journey.  So, don’t jump — build a bridge.

Surrender your dreams to God, and He will do with them more than you could ever imagine.

“Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.” (Ephesians 3:20-21)

The Lord has given you a role in building His Kingdom, and He will fulfill every purpose He has for you.

You may not know how, but He does. You may feel confused, but He isn’t.

Surrender to Him. Trust Him to accomplish what He is asking you to do. He knows what you need, and in His timing, He will follow through. 

When He sets something on your heart, no matter how big, He has every intention of bringing it to life.

“I cry out to God Most High, to God who will fulfill his purpose for me.” (Psalm 57:2)

So, faithfully and intentionally, build your bridge. Slowly and obediently, take one step at a time.

He will not let your foot slip.
