What is one meal of the day you cannot go without?
In order for us to have big, we need to think big. It’s time for us to be delivered from small thinking, bad thinking, limited thinking, hopeless thinking, negative thinking, fearful thinking, depressed thinking, and to replace it with God thinking, victorious thinking, peaceful thinking no limit thinking, and ministry thinking. Your mind can be your best friend or your worst enemy. Your thoughts have the power to make you healthy or sick, rich or poor, effective or ineffective.
The word Think means to have a belief, to consider something as a possible action
The word Big means large, as in size or amount, of major concern, importance, as in influence.
GENESIS 1:1 (NKJV) In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
God is a big thinker, and so should we be. Did you know that there are more stars in the universe than grains of sand on all the beaches on Earth. ... over 300 billion stars in our own Milky Way. Imagine the mind that it took to create it.
Q1 - How does it build your faith knowing how Big our God thinks?
Q2 - Does it encourage you knowing that God has Big vision for you? How so?
GENESIS 17:4-5 (CEV) I promise that you will be the father of many nations. That’s why I now change your name from Abram to Abraham. 6 I will give you a lot of descendants, and in the future they will become great nations. Some of them will even be kings.
God changed Abrams name to Abraham when he was 99 years old. At 100 years old, the promise is fulfilled. When we might think it’s too late for us, it's not too late for God. God wants to bring supernatural increase into our lives and it starts with increasing out vision.
Q3 - We often name ourselves after our faults and downfalls. What is something you have named yourself in the past?
Q4 - What names do you believe God is calling you?
JOHN 14:12 (NLT) 12 “I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father.
Q5 - What do you think are some signs that God is going to do new things in your life?
Q6 - Is God doing something new in your life right now? Please share with the group.
God’s thinking is at another level from our thinking, and God wants to get our thinking up.
ISAIAH 55:8-9 (NLT) “My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. 9. For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.
Q7 - What if God has a plan to save our whole family this Easter/Resurrection Sunday? If that’s the case, how should we respond to God’s plan? (Leader hint: believe it, speak it into existence, declare it, take action on it!)
We sometimes use our own human reason when we look at problems, abilities, the economy, etc. When we use human reasoning, we can’t see what God sees for us.
Q8 - What are some ways as humans we get caught in human reasoning?
Q9 - Knowing what you know about God and how much he loves you, how should you reason in life now?
In the month of March, our Care Project is going to be to help fund the new school in Uganda! We have made progress with the school (new classrooms and offices are up).

Father, help me to think BIG! I want your thoughts for me, your plan for me, your word for me, and your vision for me! Teach me to think big the way you think! Show me how to believe your word, speak it into existence, declare it, take action on it! I will walk according to your word, not my own human reasoning. Thank you Lord! In Jesus’ name, amen!
THINK BIG! Have you been thinking small about something in your life? If so, practice this. Write down your small thought on paper, then cross it out. Then write down something BIG to replace that small thinking.
Note for Leaders: Take prayer requests and praise reports. Keep a good record of this. Follow up on prayer requests and celebrate praise reports.
