"No, no... I, I want a big one!"
You see, George Bailey wanted a suitcase as large as his dreams. He had plans to shake the dust of that crumby little town of his feet and see the world! But, what George didn't realize is that God had already seen his dreams and knew his purpose. Of course God lays out a plan for us that is so much greater than what we could envision for ourselves. Yet, we know that God put that desire in George's heart. Why, do you think, God put the wanderlust in George's heart... only to never fulfill that in him? I know there have been many times in which I have asked God for something only to receive the answer, "No." At that moment in George's life... God was saying "no," but with the help of Clarence... he was preparing a marvelous work in George's life. Is God preparing you for a marvelous work right now? One that might be different from what you have planned?
