Maybe the business deal you are waiting for hasn’t gone through, or the opportunity you have been praying for is not here yet, or even the right person hasn’t come into your life however, don’t start looking to the left or to the right, look ahead! What is ahead of you is greater than what is behind you. God does not want to just meet your needs or give you the desires of your heart; He wants to fill your storehouse with exceedingly, abundantly type of blessings that surpass all the you can ask, think or imagine!
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.
What a Time to be Alive
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.
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.
I am ________.
Have you ever had someone discourage you from doing something that you are passionate about? I know, I have! People have no idea how just one word can plant a seed of insecurity in one’s heart. Just because you may not be where you want to be, does not disqualify you from attaining or mastering that gift and that calling that is on the inside of you.
No one knows you better than God! Stop trying to prove something that He has already spoken.
It’s a Lifestyle.
Sometimes we feel like we need all this elaborate training, knowledge, or even background when, faith is meant to be more than a formality. Faith is patience with mystery and, the opposite of that is certainty. You usually don’t stretch yourself to a territory that enables the faith that you need for the challenge you are going to face because, it is uncomfortable. Since we have such a situational view of God, most of our lives are spent trying to fix that situation.
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.
Until you are willing to move from the safety of the shore unto the danger of the deep, you will never know the fullness of God’s riches in your life because it is in that moment that you become a proof of Jesus to the world. There is nothing more liberating knowing that a life with Jesus is not just the right way to live but, the best way to live. Stay faithful in the ins and outs, and watch how God rewards you.
