No, A God-Sized Vision Doesn’t Need To Be Big And Scary

Does God’s vision for our life, church and ministry have to be big to be real? I keep hearing that it does. Sayings like “if your vision isn’t big enough to scare you, it’s not from God” have been popular for quite some time now. Apparently we’re all supposed to have a BHAG (Big, Hairy, Audacious Goal – an acronym popularized by Jim Collins in his book Built to Last) if we’re walking in faith and greatness. I’m just not sure that’s a necessary part of faith or obedience. Sometimes our desire to chase one big vision after another is more about being addicted to the adrenaline rush of our own oversized passion than following the simple commands of God.
