God is always in the business of doing something extraordinary in your life and I can guarantee that it is bigger and better than anything you can have dreamt and imagined. Greater things are possible for you right in the place where God has positioned you. For me, my place is Miami and the specific locations I can currently make a grand impact are at Florida International University and by being connected to my local church and our amazing young adults ministry (#WildAndUntamed).
Often, we settle for dreams and visions that are far less than those that God has for us.
When you know God has promised you greater things, you don’t wait for a sign to appear before you respond.
Imperfect people are vital to the cause of Christ, not because of any deficiency in God but because God’s perfect choices aren’t based upon worldly criteria.
God’s intentions are always good intentions. He won’t give you just anything, he will give you the best and sometimes it is easy for you and I to forget that, because all we can think about is the door that didn’t open or that door that just closed on us when we really needed it.
Has it ever crossed your mind that sometimes what God deconstructs is just as important as what He develops. You go from glory to glory; you will NEVER walk in victory to end in defeat.
Since faith is the evidence of things hoped for, the substance of things unseen; it is also the invisible connection point by which you reach out and grab what you are hoping for and you are bringing it right into this present moment. Sometimes, you just need to zoom out and change your frame of reference. You can’t just set your frame up and leave it still. You need to anticipate what will happen next.
You don’t have to move out in fear; remind yourself who you are and what our heavenly father says about you.
There are five gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, and YOU. Most people will never read the first four and will only read the last one. Will your gospel be worth reading?
What if the thing that is holding you captive is just an indication of the calling that is inside of you and if it ever got loose or if it ever got free, it might change the world.
You see, hope rises when we come together. The enemy could have kept their feet from moving but He could not keep Paul’s and Silas’ voice from singing. Their praise broke their chains! Their perspective wasn’t connected to their pain; it was connected to their purpose. Hope is what causes us to believe that our setbacks are merely setups for greater things than we could ever imagine.
Faith is not a feeling; it is a decision. Until you face it (it can be limited thinking, discouragement, pride, resentment, bitterness, anger, disappointment …. Etc.), faith can’t fix it. Don’t judge the tree by the size of the seed; attach the seed of your dream to the seed of your faith. If it is His vision, He will give you the provision!
Sometimes when you are not seen, God is saving you for something so special that He hides you to protect you and preserve you.
It is the things that no one sees that produce everything that everyone wants. Keep doing what you are do with a greater awareness of what Christ is doing in you. You don’t need a “new and improved” assignment to experience a greater anointing. God will increase your strength in the demands of the situation.
What God put in your heart, He wants to make known through your life. The key to the future you hope for is found in being faithful with the measure God has given you. Don’t beat yourself up over what might have happened or what might have been; this can cause you to miss out on what God wants to teach you in the present.
Your purpose and persistence determines how high you can go. Stop wasting potential on areas that are not a part of your purpose. It is time to refuse complacency as you wait around for God to fix your mindset. It won’t come down until you send it up. You never know until you let go, Release and watch it rain!
Never compromise the vision or the process that God has given you. Most of us, overestimate how much control we have and underestimate the choice we have. You never really have control in a situation, but you ALWAYS have a choice. Instead of blaming your current situation on decision you made, see it as an opportunity to ask yourself to questions: “Where have you come from”? and “Where are you going”? You can either forcefully do things your own way or flee from waiting to see what God has in store for you by being in the driver’s seat of your vehicle AKA your life.
