What does the LORD your God require of you, but to fear the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, to love him, to serve the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.
Are you making a living, or are you making a life? God has called you not to just take up space in this world, but to make our world a better place in which to live.
Yes, God wants you to make a difference.
And the people God uses to make a difference in this world are people who are vulnerable to Him, who are dependent on Him, and who are available to Him. If you seek a courageous faith and ask God to give you a compassionate heart, then anything is possible.
I believe it’s time to make an impact on this generation and the coming generations for Christ. It’s time for us to fulfill our calling before He comes again. It’s time for God’s Church to rise up and shake off the past and shake the world for Christ.
It’s time for God to do a brand new thing in the hearts of His people. And that means you!
Someone put it this way: “A zealous man in religion is preeminently a man of one thing. It is not enough to say he is earnest, hardy, uncompromising, thoroughgoing, wholehearted, firm in spirit. He only sees one thing. He cares for one thing. He lives for one thing. He is swallowed up in one thing. And that one thing is to please God.”
Let that be the passion and the prayer of our hearts and of our lives! God is looking for men and women who have a heart for Him… men and women who want to take their lives to the next level, who want to live beyond all limits.
That’s my prayer for you and me today. That we will want to move out of the maze of mediocrity in our lives and live for something bigger than ourselves. That we will move out of our comfort zones into the life God has called us to live!
THE PEOPLE GOD USES TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THIS WORLD ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE VULNERABLE TO HIM, WHO ARE DEPENDENT ON HIM, AND WHO ARE AVAILABLE TO HIM.
