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).
Your perception and interpretation dictates the outcome of the situation. It doesn’t matter nearly as much where the pressure comes from as it does what you do with it, which will determine what it produces in your life.
What is happening around you is really what God is doing in you.
Only God can show you how to convert the pressure into something glorious. You may have been here before and what you are facing seems far more difficult than the past but you and I serve a faithful and never changing God who is able to deliver is from anything.
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.
Our mind is our greatest battlefield and in the midst of a war; we must be strong. The mind is the source for every action we take, every decision we make, and every thought we allow to linger.
I wonder what our lives would look like if we would reflect on the word of God instead of looking at other people to see if we measure up.
We have no reason to fear because not only has our Father redeemed us and made us whole, but we have been individually named and adopted as God’s own.
Obedience is your responsibility; the outcome is Gods.
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.
Worrying just gets you move backwards and to abandon the boat that you are on with Jesus. Quit worrying and start worshipping! Nothing is impossible with God and; if you can trust in that unwavering promise then, all is well.
What you give attention to, you give authority.
Whenever you feel like you don’t have control over a situation and your initial response is to worry, begin to worship.
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.
The Christian life is not me first; it is the kingdom first.
Seek first the kingdom and everything else will be blessed.
Get in alignment with what God says about you. What you are passionate about is what you activate. Don’t let your past come in the way of seeking Jesus; you have control of your present.
The only person that is responsible for your actions (and your thinking) is you.
Jesus is not an addition to your life; He is the focal point.
When you are called to venture out to uncharted waters, it can be difficult to take the first steps towards a new discovery, often an unknown one. Confidently walk and construct the dream that God has placed on the inside of you. Go along using the resources that God provides for you and don’t dwell on what you don’t know or what you don’t have. Nothing can open the door to your bright future like a personal revelation of Jesus’ lordship over your life. Step into something new believing that God will keep His promises and will provide the resources to realize the possibility for greatness in your life.
