Have you heard about the frog that was born at the bottom of a well?  He thought life could not get any better till one day he looked up and saw day light.  Climbing up to investigate he was amazed to find a much larger pond than the one he lived in.  And going further afield he discovered a lake that was bigger again. When eventually he came to the ocean and all he could see was water, it dawned on him just how limited his thinking had been. He thought everything he needed was down in the well, but that was a drop in the bucket compared to the things that were out there for him to enjoy. 

May be we are living today in our own little "well", reluctant to leave our comfort zone, settling for a limited and safe existence while God has rivers deep enough "to swim in". Wouldn't we like to step out in faith, experience new depths in Him and go where we have never been before?  Remember, the enemy will do everything he can to keep us focused on our background, our lack of formal education, our appearance and our limited resources.  But Bruce Wilkinson says, "It does not matter whether you are short of money, people, energy, or time. What God invites you to do will always be greater than the resources you start with." 

We do not have to let fear limit our vision when God is our source, because His supply is unlimited! One idea from Him, just one, can change our lives and the lives of others. He has got great things in store for us today - so start thinking outside the box!
