What is your definition of success? Now think about God’s definition of success, really think about it – is there any difference between your definition and His? If you are really honest, then I bet there is!
God created you and He created you to be successful, but it is probably not success in the terms that the world has got us used to thinking in. God created you and me to change the world, so let me ask you – how are you doing with that?
Do you think of yourself as a world-changer? Most of us think way below this high expectation that God has created us for. But there it is – the reality of our Creator: We were created for this!
Our being small is not really the problem. Our failure to understand and believe how big our God is, is the problem. God is God and He can do anything He wants to do. He invites us to join Him and faith is our ticket to get on the most amazing ride of all time.
You have a choice to make – will you respond with the optimism that unleashes the hope that defeats despair and the faith that conquers doubt, or will you let the task at hand become bigger than your God?
Jeremiah 9:23-24 says: “23 This is what the LORD says: “Let not the wise boast of their wisdom or the strong boast of their strength or the rich boast of their riches, 24 but let the one who boasts boast about this: that they have the understanding to know me, that I am the LORD, who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth, for in these I delight,” declares the LORD.”
Lord, You have created all things and I know and believe that You have created me for such a time as this! Please help me to live a life of faith that allows me to change this world for Your glory!
