My sincerest desire today as I write this meditation is to bless and encourage you. I really want to go forward today as you read it with a new spring in your step, a new sense of your possibilities in God and with an encouragement that warms your soul.
I awoke, and it was the first thing on my mind and as much as I believe that it is God speaking to me personally I also believe God wants to encourage and minister to your heart also.
You are destined to turn the World in which you dwell upside down. You are not destined to live in defeat, condemnation, spiritual poverty.
You have resurrection life and you are not saved to live out the resurrection life you have been given in mediocrity. Mediocrity is a heart problem. If we lose our awe of His majesty then that awe amnesia provides an open door that permits mediocrity to enter in.
You are saved to love Him with the love He has by the Holy Spirit poured into your heart.*1
You are saved to worship Him in the awe of the revelation He has given to your understanding.
You are saved to serve Him in the strength and power that He has bestowed upon you with the anointing you have.
It is an anointing that animates our – Love, Adoration and Service.
You are a masterpiece created by God and He desires that you look at His World and your World differently, with His eyesight.
Every aspect of what you consider your World – Work, Family, Education, Marriage, Careers – Even your Sickness, Bondage, Depression, and Captivity, are His World. He dwells with you in the midst of it.
You are a miracle, created at Calvary but planned before even God even said, “Let there be….”
It is in the midst of your World that He manifests His power to bring success, to enable patience and forbearance. It is in the midst of your World where He manifests His grace and reveals His glory.
When the people of God came out of Egypt God provided a miracle the Fire.
When the people of God came out of Egypt God provided a miracle and parted the ocean.*3
When all seemed lost and the last and only hope the World had – Jesus – was nailed to a cross and laid in a tomb – God provided a miracle and raised Him.*4
In your life, as His Masterpiece of Grace He wants to give you a miracle. God doesn’t look at your background or your qualifications. He doesn’t consider your education or your eloquence. He looks only at your heart and simply asks if you would like to be used by Him to do something great. *5
Look to Him, Believe Him, Trust that He who holds your life in His hands – Today wants to give you a miracle. It may not in the Worlds standard of definition be spectacular or even attention grabbing – but to you it can be life changing, it can be revolutionary and bring about change that is fruit producing and fruit that sustains, nourished and above all remains.
He is revealing the excellency of His Glory and Majesty through your life *6 – In the Victories and even in the Defeats – He is providing a moment by moment revelation of Himself. Look for the fingers of God at work in your life today.
I’m reminded as I write this if the words of Albert Einstein who said “There are only two ways to live your life one as though nothing is a miracle – the other as if everything is a miracle”
Dare to Dream today for a miracle – Let’s live out our dream today and ongoing like it is a miracle.
How are you and I say to myself going to live ours out?
Do let me know.
*1 – “The Love of God has been shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost” – King James Version
*2 – “They moved on from Succoth and then camped at Etham at the edge of the wilderness. God went ahead of them in a Pillar of Cloud during the day to guide them on the way, and at night in a Pillar of Fire to give them light; thus they could travel both day and night. The Pillar of Cloud by day and the Pillar of Fire by night never left the people” – The Message
*3 – “Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the Lord caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea into dry land, and the waters were divided. 22 So the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea on the dry ground, and the waters were a wall to them on their right hand and on their left” – King James
*4 – “But God raised him from the dead, freeing him from the agony of death, because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on him” – NIV
1 Corinthians 1:27-31
*5 – “Take a good look, friends, at who you were when you got called into this life. I don’t see many of “the brightest and the best” among you, not many influential, not many from high-society families. Isn’t it obvious that God deliberately chose men and women that the culture overlooks and exploits and abuses, chose these “nobodies” to expose the hollow pretensions of the “somebodies”? That makes it quite clear that none of you can get by with blowing your own horn before God. Everything that we have—right thinking and right living, a clean slate and a fresh start—comes from God by way of Jesus Christ. That’s why we have the saying, “If you’re going to blow a horn, blow a trumpet for God” – The Message
Romans 8: 18
*6 – “I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us” – NIV
