But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us...raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. (Ephesians 2:47, NKJV)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
Oftentimes, people set their focus on what God has done in the past how He parted the Red Sea or stopped the sun for Joshua or fed thousands of people with just a little boys small lunch. Yes, God has performed many amazing miracles throughout history, and its important that we give Him praise and glory. But at the same time, we also have to look forward to what God wants to do in our lives today. In this verse, Paul says that in the ages to come, God would do things that far supersede anything Hes ever done before. I believe that the ages to come hes talking about is this day and time were living in right now. God wants to outdo Himself in our generation!
Remember, God is a God of increase. Where you are today is not where you are supposed to stay. He has greater levels of His favor and blessing in store for you. Dare to dream big! Dare to keep a God-sized vision in front of you! Dare to take hold of every blessing the Lord has in store for you!
A Prayer for Today
Father, thank You for Your faithfulness in my life. I open my heart and mind to You so that I can see the greatness of what You want to do today and in the future. Use me for Your glory in Jesus name. Amen.
