God wants to do amazing things in your life!
I believe He is going to take you places you’ve never been before, on a path you never knew existed.
My own path led me to be involved in the fight against human trafficking. For you, it may be something else. All I know is, I wasn’t the most qualified or the most educated in this field, but I walk in the authority of Jesus who commissioned me to go out and do “greater things.”
“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father” (John 14:12 NKJV).
It doesn’t matter if you’re a man or a woman, living in the city or the suburbs, educated or not – God has a plan and a destiny for you!
We know that each runner must remain in their designated lane in a track race. This prevents them from impeding each other and helps them keep a clear view of the path ahead and the finish line.
In spiritual terms, we also need to stay focused and not allow ourselves to be distracted by what others are doing.
The writer of Hebrews gives us the solution: if we keep our eyes fixed on Jesus, then we won’t veer off course in life. (See Hebrews 12:1-2.)
Our goal is to complete the course set out for us by God and to become more and more like Jesus along the way.
Jesus is both the beginning and the end of our race (and everything in-between)! Today, if you are feeling emptied out, distracted and exhausted, it may be because you have lost sight of the source of your completion.
All it takes is fixing your eyes on Jesus again!
Do you want to know two of the greatest keys in building a strong marriage, great family, great friendships, healthy body, prosperous business and fruitful ministry?
Consistency and commitment!
“For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, there a little” (Isaiah 28:10 NKJV).
You only have to put one foot in front of the other and take one step at a time.
Today, whatever your destination, start slowly and build gradually. Take one step at a time and allow the Lord to work in your life along the way. You will be glad you did!
I absolutely love this phrase ... it is better to be MARKED by God than to be MARKETED by man!
Today, you need to know that YOU are marked by God to do great things. And when God marks you, everyone else can get it wrong but HE will exalt you in due season.
Remember, God opens doors that no man can shut!
"I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name."(Revelation 3:8 NKJV)
Experienced marathon runners will have visualized their whole race – the entire 26.3 miles from start to finish – before they set off. Long-distance runners come to grips with the race internally, in their hearts, before ever setting foot on the course.
We ought to have that same overall sense of vision for our lives! Having a clear picture of what the race of life is all about, where we are heading, and what we are likely to encounter along the way will sustain us for the entire duration.
Proverbs 29:18 says, Where there is no vision, the people perish ... (KJV).
Many people do not finish their race simply because they lack long-term vision.
Pause for a moment and reflect on this question: Are there any areas in your life where you have given up because you’ve lost sight of the bigger picture?
Maybe you have lost your vision for life emotionally, physically, relationally or financially.
If so, DON’T GIVE UP! Identify the point where you gave up, renew your vision and GO FOR IT!
