Thought for the day:
In our own eyes, we are more than our worst moments.
In God’s eyes, we are more than our best moments.
Let that sink in. More than our best moments. We’ve only just begun to tap our potential. We haven’t even imagined what God has in mind for us to be.
There is no glass ceiling for our lives when God is given charge.
When God is in charge of ourselves. And therein lies the secret:
Let Him be the teacher, director, coach, counselor, and ruler of our lives. He is right there, willing to be in partnership with us. We don’t have to be alone — we weren’t meant to be alone. He will be our life partner, our team mate, our personal team leader.
But only if we are aware of that fact. Only if we consciously let Him. He won’t intrude and take over anyone or anything if He isn’t requested.
When He is included each and every moment of each and every day — which takes conscious choice until it becomes a habit — the sky’s the limit in our daily lives.
In partnership with God, when we come to the end of our limitations, He takes us beyond …
In our eyes we are more than our worst moment.
In God’s eyes we are more than our best moments.
Beyond what we have ever asked.
Beyond what we have ever imagined.
Ephesians 3: 19of the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. 20Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us,21to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.…
Now to Him who is able to strengthen you by my gospel and by the proclamation of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery concealed for ages past
2 Corinthians 9:8
And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things, at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.
I became a servant of this gospel by the gift of God’s grace, given me through the working of His power.
2 Samuel 7:19
And this was yet a small thing in thy sight, O Lord GOD; but thou hast spoken also of thy servant’s house for a great while to come. And is this the manner of man, O Lord GOD?
(Paul:) Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his power.
And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to we who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,
… I also labour, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily.
