Why not? That is a tough thought for someone who leans to the dark-side of things or struggles with negative thoughts. I have to fight sometimes to stay positive.
God calls us to live out of our potential and calling. For me my purpose of calling out the potential of others is a huge deal. God calls us to run toward Him, to kick fear away and to seize excellent opportunities as they come our way.
I should be the one for my family and even for our church who sees possibilities and helps each of us to reach for them. It is easy to take the easy road. It is much easier to cower under fear and what doesn’t require sacrifice.
What do we miss if we don’t take challenges or make sacrifices? We will miss rewards and blessings. Others will miss rewards. Our living won’t challenge others to live by faith or to live with passion.
Try to use these words this week. Why not? Instead of questioning or settling of less. Shoot for more. Take the next step. Believe God for more!
Philippians 3:14 NLT
I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.
Daniel 3:17-18 NLT
If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God whom we serve is able to save us. He will rescue us from your power, Your Majesty. But even if he doesn’t, we want to make it clear to you, Your Majesty, that we will never serve your gods or worship the gold statue you have set up.
