We tend to be a people who forget the things that we need to remember and remember the things that we need to forget! Way to often, we take for granted the goodness of God in our lives. We fail to appreciate the simple blessings, because in our minds they are simple! We grow cool to the things that we should be hot for.
The fires need to be rekindled! It’s time to stir the ashes, find the hot coals and bring them together, so that we can get the fire deep within our souls reignited and burning bright. We take way too much for granted in our marriages, families and careers! We take for granted the most important relationship of all relationships – our relationship with our Creator!
Don’t allow your relationships to grow stale. Instead make sure that you take the time to appreciate them. Get enthusiastic about what could and should be. When you decided to do something, so it with all that you’ve got and then some!
God did not create you to walk through this world discouraged, defeated and depressed! God created you to walk with your head up high, a smile on your face and a spring in your step! God created you to be encouraged, victorious and happy!
It does not matter what you have been though! It does not matter whose fault it was! You situation may look impossible, the good news is that you have a Creator, Who loves you and Who has an amazing plan for your life and He is in the business of “turnarounds!”
God wants to restore and give you more! Grab hold of and hold onto the victory that God has for you. Start living with expectation, looking to see how God is going to prove Himself faithful on your behalf! Dare to declare that you are victorious over anyone and anything that might try to come against the plans of blessing that God has for you. Don’t you dare settle for a life of mediocrity!
Faith activates the power of God. If you have faith, then you have expectation and if you have expectation, then God is going to show up and do more than we can dream or imagine! Get excited about the life that God has for you. Ask God to enlarge your vision, to give you positive thoughts and use the strength He has given you to live a life that brings Him glory!
God’s Word says: 18 “Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool. 19 If you are willing and obedient, you will eat the good things of the land; 20 but if you resist and rebel, you will be devoured by the sword.” For the mouth of the LORD has spoken.” Isaiah 1:18-20
The mistakes we have made and the sins we have committed cannot push us down, nor hold us back. If we will receive the precious gifts of God’s love, mercy, grace and forgiveness, then we should live willing and obedient lives, these lives allow us to live in blessing and enjoy the good things of the land! Faith in God activates the power of God to flow into and through my life, so that my ordinary life accomplishes and experiences extraordinary things!
