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.
Ahaz, Isaiah, and Joseph
