The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy. (Psalm 126:3, NIV)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
God did not create us to reach one level and stop. When we think, Oh God, thank You, Ive accomplished my dreams, God says, I appreciate your thanks, but Im not finished with you. Its too small a thing for you to stay there. Ive got something bigger. In our minds, it could be huge. Just got the promotion. Just moved into the Compaq Center. Just met the person of my dreams. God did more than I could ask or think. The whole time, Gods in the heavens saying, You havent seen anything yet. Im glad youre happy, but thats a small thing.
Gods idea of big is much different than our idea of big. In scripture, David not only ended up serving the king, he became the king. He thought, God, wow, Youve amazed me with Your goodness. God said, Still, its too small a thing, David. Im going to put one of your descendants on the throne for the next 1,000 generations.
Remember, as long as you have breath, God isnt finished with you yet. He has so much more in store for your future. Be open to His leading because Gods idea of big is so much greater than anything you could imagine!
A Prayer for Today
Father, thank You for every good and perfect gift that Youve given to my life. I open myself to the good things You have for my future. I believe and receive every blessing You have prepared for me in Jesus name. Amen.
