When you are stressed out, you’ve taken on responsibilities of things you don’t have the power to carry. Jesus is not surprised by your stress, anxiety, and exhaustion. He instead invites you to walk with Him so He can give you the peace you are seeking.
52 weeks ago, I celebrated my 21st birthday and here I am again celebrating my 22nd. One of the best ways you can be intentional with your life is to always be growing. The decisions you make today determine the stories you tell about your life tomorrow. So, the best decision you can make is always the next one. People who never get started leave no room for ambiguity. Therefore, decide today to take steps that will move you closer to becoming all that God has made you to be. I know that It takes a lot of courage and bravery to step out in faith but we were not meant to stay confined within the limits of fear.
How you start your day will determine how it is going to be. I wonder how many of us place the same amount of effort and excitement to enriching our purpose and mapping out our future than we do to predicting the outcome of college basketball.
Have you discovered what you are passionate about? What is something that sets your heart on fire and, that you want to make a priority in this new year? Don’t wait until next week or next month to begin making an action plan; Start NOW! Our dreams are not independent from God, but instead exist because of God.
How many people are limited by their own thinking, their own insecurities, or even the voices they have allowed others to speak over them? MANY.
Has it come to you that, maybe your answer may be limiting the movement of God in your life.
Attached to understanding one’s life purpose is knowing who our creator is.
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.
God didn’t choose you so you would fail. He chose you so that you would bear fruit, a fruit that would last. (John 15:8) God chose YOU and he didn’t make a mistake when He chose YOU. God is calling you to step into a new level of authority and anointing where it seems that others are better equipped. Nonetheless, rest in the fact that when you feel inadequate or insecure, God has selected you to do what He has called you to.
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.
Our daily challenge is to synchronize our faith with God’s schedule. Destiny is not a drive thru, where you can order _____________ and expect to receive it five minutes later. I have learned that everything God will reveal in your life will be done in stages. In the bible, our ability to exercise our faith is illustrated by sowing seeds and reaping a harvest in due time.
Before you sow a seed, you need to plow the ground first to make sure that the soil is ready for the scattering stage. With time as you continue to take care of the seed, the sprouting stage will take place and you will be ready to harvest the grain. I know what you must be thinking, “Ok Dani, enough with all this agricultural talk. How can I apply this principle to my own life”?
The real question is: How do you relate with impatience when God’s schedule is not synchronized with yours?
