NEVER BE SATISFIED WITH WHERE YOU ARE – YOU CAN DO BETTER!
Friends, our faith is of the essence here! Our faith in what God sees. Our ability to believe him. Our ability to stay at the height of his expectations instead of descending to the valley of our human limitations. This will always be the major challenge of the believer. Either to take God at his word, and go ahead and act it out, or live in the comfort of mediocrity, where everything is clear, understandable and logical.
Apart from believing God for what he says concerning us, we will also need to believe in ourselves that I am who he says I am. It doesn’t matter how I feel, it is irrelevant what my weaknesses are, I am who he says I am. Another area where we will need faith is in simply obeying and stepping out. Stepping out to do what he told us to do. Stepping out knowing that we cannot fail and we shall not fail. Faith to step out in preparation.
“For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.” 1Jn 5:4
I prepare because I know I want to succeed. I prepare because I must succeed. It is that same faith to justify his trust in me, that does not allow me to be satisfied with simply just succeeding. I want to succeed big time. For that I work harder than the others. I strive, I fight, I endure, I persevere. All these take faith. It is that faith that makes me to know that I would definitely bring forth fruits. Still that faith gives me the conviction of fruitfulness. I know! Therefore, I work to multiply my gains. It is that faith that drives me to multiply my results.
“They are called, “Self-worth” and “Self-esteem” for a reason… we can’t let others decide what we are worth, that is so dangerous! Empower yourself!”― Jaeda DeWalt
It is that faith that does not allow me to be satisfied with where I am. It is that faith that makes me to push myself even further to do my best, to stretch myself, to explore all my possibilities. It is because I believe, that I strife to cover the earth with the fruits of my calling. It is that faith that encourages me to want to subdue the whole earth for him. It is that faith that makes me to keep on believing, to keep on working, that one day the glory of the lord will cover the earth, as the waters cover the sea.
