The problem with our world is that most people do not dream big. In experiencing hardship, we have a tendency to assume the worst, thinking narrowly. The Biblical vision is the opposite of this. Biblical figures see the world through the infinite possibility of God – based in their faith in the Lord. Ahaz refused to be surprised by God’s possibility. Isaiah was ready to be surprised. This confidence in God allowed him to dream big.
