When you understand that Christ lives in you and gives you the power to overcome, you have the ability to change your perspective. You have to decide if will you be affected by the people and situations in your life or will you affect the people and the situations in your life.
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.
“True Bravery isn’t feeling no fear- it’s being afraid and moving forward anyway.” Hard times unlock the doors to places you could not get into any other way. It is in the waiting that God does his greatest work. I can boldly confess that because it is where I am at today. It is when we find joy in the waiting being confident that He will do it that, our Heavenly Father begins to create new things in our lives.
The vantage point from which you see things will determine the art you create.You cannot mentor (teach, lead, counsel) people whose perspective you are not willing to understand.
If God places you somewhere, He wants you to take responsibility for the people (and the place) He has given you.
Seasons change but the Savior NEVER does. You can’t choose your season but, you can choose your spirit. We can be fruitful, faithful, and passionate Christians in every single season of our lives because Jesus comes with us throughout.
Faith is preparing before the blessing comes. Having a plan b is unnecessary when Jesus is on your side. Don’t dig up in doubt what you planted in faith. In the kingdom, there is no plan b. God is your everything.
trusting God completely, you’re no longer at the mercy of circumstances, other people, or your own emotions and limitations. It’s all about following God’s leading, standing on His Word, and then resting + trusting Him to work on your behalf.
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.
Faith does not come from striving; it comes from surrendering. It is not the product of works; it is the product of yielding. In the midst of it all, regardless of what you and I may be facing today, we need to remember that, the answer to it all is sitting at the feet of Jesus.
