Dream Big To Amplify God’s Kingdom
Posted on: June 6, 2013, by : Brandon Gilliland

The other day, I made a graphic to post on my social network accounts. I thought that I would post it here and explain it a little bit more. I enjoy connecting with many of you through Twitter and Instagram, but at the same time, I enjoy being able to have more of a discussion on the blog.


Dream It



We all have dreams. Some are pursuing their dreams while others have given up. I believe that God has given each of us different talents and abilities to do His work. Therefore, it is expected that we have different callings in life and different dreams.


I wanted to write this post today as an encouragement to whoever is reading. Dream big! With God on our side, we can not fail. There are a few verses that I have made my “life verses” recently because they are applicable to everyday life.


“A man’s heart plans his way, But the Lord directs his steps.”

-Proverbs 16:9

In life, we have ideas, dreams, and goals. These are great, but you have to make sure they line up with God’s direction for your life because He is the One who is going to pave the way. Knowing God’s will becomes clearer when we focus on serving Him. Easier said than done…that’s for sure!

The good news is that we are not alone. God will provide and give you the strength to accomplish what He has called you to do.

“He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it.”

-I Thessalonians 5:24

So with all of this in mind, realize that God will be there with you to help you accomplish the things He calls you to do. Dream big and amplify God’s kingdom!

The world has too many people sitting around waiting for someone to come along to change the world. I pray that we wouldn’t be sitting on the sidelines…but that we would actually be playing in the game God has for us.

What do you feel God is calling you to do to make an impact on others? Feel free to share anything in the comments!

  • Great thoughts bro! God is calling us to do great things for His name.

  • I feel God is calling me to help people reach their full awesome potential online. Everyone has a story to tell, and I think God has given me a few unique ways to help them tell their stories better.

    • That’s awesome! I’ve certainly learned a lot from you over the years! Our world is becoming more mobile, and I believe that it’s important to have a strong online presence as well. This world needs to hear the message of hope and how Jesus saves. Being able to share that online is one of the many ways to do that.
      Great comment!

  • Hey what did you use to create the graphic BTW?

    • I use a few. I use snap seed to edit the actual picture, but I use Over to place the text. They are both apps. I highly recommend them! Every graphic I post on my Twitter and Instagram is created with these two apps!
      It’s not as good as photoshop on the computer, but it is very easy to get good results with them!

  • Great post Brandon! It reminded me of Philippians 1:6 “He who began a good work in you will carry it on until completion…” It is cool to know that God is more concerned with our dream than we are sometimes! Thanks for sharing!

    • That’s a great verse! Thanks for your comment! I totally agree with you!
