Vulnerability is the gatekeeper that leads you towards opportunity. I wrote my last post on the power of owning your story. And the more I walk with God, the more I discover not only the power to own your story, but the power in owning your disappointments. Three days after my 23rd birthday, I got…
What is stopping you from reaching your goals? What is holding you back from taking that trip, starting that business, publishing that book, losing that weight, writing that song, filming that tutorial……?( and the list can go on forever……) I believe it is not because we lack motivation to start something or, because we have lost the drive to complete it.
How it all Came to be
Faith is the process of adapting your behavior, your decisions, and ultimately, your whole lifestyle so that it is in sync with what God has asked you to do—without needing to see the evidence that it will all work out in the end.So, when you put Flourishing by Faith together, you are living a life that says:
I pray and then believe.
I expect and then see.
I ask and then I receive.
I am not easily discouraged or paralyzed by fear or insecurity.
We have a choice when it comes to the way we see things. Some people are like thermometers; always alerting us when things aren’t right. But others are more like thermostats. These people determine the temperature in the room. Their words, their thoughts and their actions set the atmosphere. Are you a thermostat or are you a thermometer? Light is often used as a metaphor for teachings that bring wisdom and understanding into the hearts of individuals. Jesus is the light of God within us.
It’s All Part of the Plan.
God is better than you think He is.He is more faithful than you know Him to be. Up to this point, you have already seen what you can do, it is time to see what God can do. Be confident knowing that God has already placed the destination in your GPS and has an exceedingly abundantly above all that we can ask or think plan.
There will come a time that the people you were positioned with yesterday and the mentalities that they represent, will not be adequate for where God is taking you. When God speaks, and gives you the go, don’t have a plan b. You do not want to go where God has not gone before you.
Faith and Freedom
Your life is the origin of new roads and new horizons and is the mouth of God’s love, God’s life, and God’s provision. Every day is a new opportunity for you to stand in awe and be amazed of what the Lord is doing in our nation. God sometimes may be silent but He is never absent.
We need to listen to the what God is saying (through His word and through prayer) before we run to the media to get the latest news story.
Wisdom to Go the Distance
The word go is not the father’s plan to disorient you but His attempt to develop you.
Where you look at is where your car is going.
He will do the showing, if you will do the going.
Faith is an interpretation of progress even in the midst of pain.
What is on you is subject to what is in you.
Fashioned for Greatness
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.
eing able to build community is essential to your walk with God but now more than ever, He is calling His people to know Him by going deep in the scriptures. Expanding your knowledge in the Word and deepening your relationship with Christ is vital to knowing the heart of God because ultimately, to know Him is to love Him.
