You know, God can give you a big idea any time and any place. Only He decides when, where, and how He will reveal His plans. You may wonder if God gave us the idea for The Birthing Movement in some deep and profound way. The answer is no.
It was earlier this year, Memorial Day to be exact, and we were simply riding in the car on the way back from Virginia chatting away as we usually do. Talking about all of the top secret things that best friends discuss during long car rides. You know…the good stuff.
That was when somehow we revisited an idea that we had only briefly discussed a few times within the last few years. We both agreed that we knew God wanted each of us to do something to bless, enhance, and enrich the lives of women. We knew that there were many women (although there are many men as well who struggle with the same issues) who needed deep healing, so that they could successfully move forward and be everything that God created them to be.
We knew countless women who were walking around, pregnant with purpose, with no idea of how to press through the pain they were experiencing and birth out the promises of God that were locked inside of them.
Well, how did we know those women so well and understand completely what they were going through? The answer simply put is because we were (and in some areas still are) those women!
So, right there in that car, on that random day, God dropped His big idea into our hearts, and just like that, The Birthing Movement was conceived.
Our question to you, dear Friend, is what are you going to do with the big idea that He dropped into your heart? Do you believe that it was really from Him? Do you believe that it is possible? Will you allow it to conceive?
Many people quickly ignore those big ideas, and just keep moving on with life. You can trust that God placed that idea in your heart and mind. Why? He is trying to get you to believe. He wants you to trust that the big idea is possible through Him.
Perhaps, you never even considered becoming an entrepreneur. You may not even know any entrepreneurs on a personal level. Then, all of a sudden, one day out of nowhere, you begin to wonder what it would be like to own your very own business. You wonder what it would be like if you were your own boss. The idea of coming and going as you please, and making all of the decisions kind of excites you.
The truth is that you were probably startled when the thought first crossed your mind. That was one of those big God ideas, and He placed that desire in your heart. There you were, just sitting there, confused, curious, and expecting. Just like that, the thought (desire) was conceived.
It may not be a business for you. It may be a book, an album, a ministry, a product line, an organization, a family, a healthier lifestyle, or a number of other things! It doesn’t really matter what it is. If the idea is from God, and has conceived in your heart, then you have got to believe it, and birth it out!
As you prepare to birth it out, here are 5 things to remember when you are believing God for something big:
1. Anything is Possible
Whatever God whispered to your heart really is possible. It’s not just some fantasy. Mark 9:23 (NLT) states "What do you mean, 'If I can'?" Jesus asked. "Anything is possible if a person believes."
2. It is impossible without Faith
If you are going to make that big thing happen, then you cannot do it without faith! Hebrews 11:6 (NLT) reads and it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.
3. Tap into the Little Faith You Do Have
As long as you have faith, even if it is just a little bit, you can get the job done. In other words, even if it is a constant struggle, believe that it is possible. Matthew 17:20 (NLT) says "I tell you the truth, if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it would move. Nothing would be impossible."
4. Focus on What You Heard
Don’t worry about what you see, or what you can't see to make it happen. Just focus on what you heard from God. Romans 10:17 (NLT) reads so faith comes from hearing, that is, hearing the Good News about Christ.
5. God will Fulfill His Plan
Most importantly, remember that this is God’s idea and not your own. That takes the pressure off of you because after He reveals His plan, He will certainly fulfill His plan! 1 Corinthians 2:10 (NLT) states but it was to us that God revealed these things by his Spirit. For his Spirit searches out everything and shows us God's deep secrets.
