If I Can

img_2904-2

Sometimes your “ifs” are not because you doubt God but because you doubt yourself.

You are judging the possibilities of the future based on what you can do and God is asking you to judge the possibilities of the future based on what He can do.

God continually wants to expand your perspective and challenge the boundaries of your possibilities.

Most of the time it is because they are too limited.

“What do you mean, ‘If I can’?’ Jesus asked. ‘Anything is possible if a person believes.’”
‭‭
Mark‬ ‭9:23‬ ‭NLT‬‬

I’m asking God to blow your mind and give you a glimpse of His purposes and plans for your future.

I’m praying that He will expand the boundaries of what you think is possible and take the limits off what you think God can do in your life.

What do you need to do today to bust it wide open and begin dreaming again? 

Just A Lil’ Bit

“The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.”

Galatians 5:6 NIV

What counts more than money, things, activities, entertainment or even a clean house?

Faith expressing itself through love.

It is like having a keychain packed full of keys and on it is this really little one, you know, that one random key that you are not sure what it is for but you are afraid to throw it out?

What if on the packed keychain of your life, you find out that there is a key that unlocks a vault where all the richest treasures are stored? You would use it, wouldn’t you?

That key is faith in Jesus expressed through love.

Jesus told His disciples in Luke 17:6 that they didn’t need to have big faith. He said that if they put into action the little faith they did have,  mountains would move.

Just a lil’ bit, that’s all you need.

It’s not the size of your faith but the size of your God.

A tiny bit of a faith, a glimpse of an idea, a crumb of hope, that is all.

Get a little bit of the dream Jesus has for you, add love and put it into action.

Take a little bit of hope in his power, add a pinch of faith and do something.

When you are at that place where it seems a positive change is more like turning the Titanic than turning a key, get with Jesus.

If you need faith for your situation, He will let you use His.

If you need to remember the dream, ask God, He dreamt it first.

If you need hope and a bit of encouragement, He is the God of all hope.

You just need a little bit to start with.

What is the Lord’s vision for your life today?


What can you do with the little faith you have?


How will you express it through love today? 

Just Do It

“But whoever catches a glimpse of the revealed counsel of God—the free life!—even out of the corner of his eye, and sticks with it, is no distracted scatterbrain but a man or woman of action. That person will find delight and affirmation in the action.”
(James 1:25 MSG)

You don’t have to have the whole plan to implement what God has shown you.

Even a glimpse of what God wants for your life can be powerful enough to start an avalanche of transformation.

Action trumps intention every time.

Intentions do not lead to freedom, actions do.

Intentions do not bring joy and blessings, actions do.

Intention does nothing for you or those around you, actions do.

Act on it.

Make that phone call.

Ask that person for forgiveness.

Give that small gift.

Take a walk.

Speak the truth…in love.

It doesn’t have to be big, it just has to be done.

Take A Moment

  
Even if it is only five minutes, take a moment today to plan. To ask God for direction and wisdom. For vision and hope.

When you “plan” with God (hold the plan gently), you set the rhythm of the next season with Him.

Not with the old habits, not by the new urgencies, or by the always present necessities, but with God.

With His wisdom, His vision and His faith.

Take some time today to plan the things you want to do in the next six weeks. His priorities.

“Careful planning puts you ahead in the long run; hurry and scurry puts you further behind”. (‭Proverbs‬ ‭21‬:‭5‬ MSG)

What do you want to do on purpose?

What things are non-negotiable?

What is possible with God?
