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!
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.
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.
Shine a light on your insecurities and begin to see them through different lenses. It is not that you no longer have fear; fear doesn’t have (power over) you.
Change your perspective and start looking at things this way:
See your guilt as an opportunity for grace.
See you hopelessness as an opportunity for faith.
Every offense that comes your way is a brand new opportunity for forgiveness.
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.
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.
The voices you believe will determine the future you experience. Let your life’s navigation system be led by the spirit and not by your senses. You walk by faith and not by sight. God will warn you but He will never create worry within you. Don’t be focus on your storm; focus on the future God has promised you. Your faith is powered by your focus.
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.
