Your creativity reflects the DNA of your creator and as an artisan, your life tells a great story. The masterpiece of our lives is composed of what God is doing in us, not just what we are doing for others. It shifts our eyes to see what God is accomplishing through us, not just what we are accomplishing on our own. Influencers lead from the inside out so that their identity shapes their leadership.
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).
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.
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.
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.
