Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.
God has called you not to just make a living, but to make 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!
Now, 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 desire and seek a courageous faith… and if you ask God to give you a compassionate heart… then anything is possible. I’m telling you, you can change the world!
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 new thing… a brand new thing in the hearts of His people! And that means you!
The story of Nehemiah is a compelling illustration of how God uses people… all kinds of people… for His glory.
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 and into the life God has called us to live!
MOVE OUT OF THE MAZE OF MEDIOCRITY IN YOUR LIFE AND LIVE THE powerful LIFE GOD HAS CALLED YOU TO live!
