What if some did not have faith? Will their lack of faith nullify Gods faithfulness? (Romans 3:3, NIV)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
Have the opinions of other people caused you to water down your dreams? There will always be critics and naysayers in life. Its not whats said about you that affects your life, but what you say and believe about yourself.
One of the most important things you can learn is that other people dont have to believe in you in order for your dreams to come to pass. Other people dont set the limits for your life you do. In Romans 3:3, the Apostle Paul is saying, It doesnt matter if other people dont believe. Their unbelief is not going to keep me from believing in my dreams. When God puts a promise in your heart, its not up to other people to bring it to pass, its up to you! You dont need everyone to validate you. You have to follow the voice of God for yourself and allow Him to order your steps.
Remember, God sees the hidden treasures that youve had buried on the inside of you. He wants to bring those treasures out and make your dreams reality! As you get rid of old, defeated thoughts and replace them with what God says about you, you will remove the limits and live the abundant life God has in store for you!
A Prayer for Today
Heavenly Father, thank You for another day to see Your goodness in my life. Today, I take off the limits and embrace the dreams You've placed in my heart. Empower me by Your Spirit to fulfill Your plan for me in Jesus name. Amen.
