Has anyone ever told you that you're destined for greatness? Well if not, I'm telling you today. Do you know why you're destined for greatness though? It is because the God of the universe who's running the entire show lives in you. And he works through you daily. No doubt about it he's GREAT! That alone guarantees greatness for you my friend. It's just that simple. Don't believe me then check out this scripture.
1 John 4:4
"Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world."
What I find interesting about this passage is that it speaks about little children. Yet it applies to all Christians. I suppose in comparison to such a BIG GOD we are little children. We only have the greatness I'm referring to because of God's power operating within us. It is in our weakness that his power manifests itself. How cool is that?
Now I'm not saying be a punk & cower down to anyone. However, I am saying that God's power within you is all that you need to flow in your greatness! But remember faith without works is dead. In other words, being lazy isn't acceptable. But put your natural efforts with Gods supernatural power and you'll literally be UNSTOPPABLE.
2 Corinthians 12:8-10
"Concerning this thing I pleaded with the Lord three times that it might depart from me. And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong."
"What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, Go in peace, be warmed and filled, without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead."
So come on ladies let's get to work for the kingdom & do what has God called us to do. Why not let God's strength shine through you so that you can show the world what greatness looks like? No turning back now, you're already headed in the right direction. No doubt about it you're destined for greatness! You just needed a road map so that you stay the course.
Also, always remember that greatness isn't necessarily determined by how quickly you finish the race. What's most important is that you endure until the end.
I'd imagine as long as God gets the glory he's more than satisfied. So running your race with perserverance is all that matters & trusting him every step of the way is what gets you across the finish line.
As you go forward in your daily journey I extend love & peace to each of you. I pray that you find your "it" and that you OWN IT. That the chains of this world be broken off of you & that you walk in the light that God intended you to walk in.
With dedication & servitude
