I heard this song a little bit ago and it always excites be because I’m a visionary with many big dreams that will only work if God helps.
John Waller said,
“Attempt something so big for God that it is sure to fail without Him.” I’m not sure who first spoke these words, but they’ve never left me. I believe the desire to be a part of something greater than ourselves is built into the core of each one of us. That’s the reason I left Georgia to become the worship pastor of a church plant in south Denver called “Southlink.” I believe that this song will strike a chord with many visionary dreamers who are contemplating stepping out and doing something that only God can truly do through them. In his book, “Visioneering,” Andy Stanley said, “A divine vision done God’s way and in God’s timing is sure to succeed.”

I wanna see something I’ve not seen Something so big I wanna be a part of something great Greater than me
It’s time to dream big dreams To see Your vision Become reality ‘Cause it’s for You, by You, those who Love You wanna do
Something so big It’s destined to fail without You, Lord It’s gonna fail without You, Lord Something so great It takes a miracle to do We, Your children Wanna do something big for You
We, yes, we are gonna sing a brand new song Something so strong We will be the sound that wakes the dawn Something so loud
It’s time for breaking through ‘Cause there are no limits For he who holds the truth When it’s for You, and by You, and those who Love You wanna do
Something bigger, something greater For the glory of Your splendor Something bigger, something greater Tell the story of Your wondrous loveYour wondrous love Those who love You wanna do
As long as we live, let us do something so big for You

When we have big dreams that we want to do for God, God has to mold us to his image so we don’t brag and take the credit that we did it all by ourselves.
