The aim of this blog is that you’ll start seeing yourselves more as an endless source of encouragement to others in our dying world. We are told in Romans 8:11, “that the same power that raised Christ from the dead lives inside of us.” We are to aim high, and be problem solvers right where God has positioned us. Don’t sit around waiting to see a move of God, see yourself as a move of God.
The encouragement here has everything to do with being a world changer and be quick to ignore the voices of those who try to discourage you. I recently re-read the very inspiring story of David and Goliath. I was inspired by how David pressed forward to fight Goliath, in-spite of his eldest brother burning in anger toward him in hearing that David had an interest to go fight the giant. King Saul would also try to talk him out of fighting Goliath by reminding David how big Goliath was, but David knew how big his God was and reminded Saul of his victories in the wilderness.
Not only did David fight a giant who an entire army was afraid of, we would also see God move through his life to bring a huge victory to Israel in (1 Samuel 17:50). I wonder how many of us have been disqualified or talked out of doing something God has strongly placed in our hearts to do for Him. It might be aiming high in getting married to that lady you’ve been dating for 5 years, it might be stepping into a serving role at your church, it may be starting that business, whatever it is…you’ve be equipped to achieve it for God’s glory.
We avoid assignments we are called to by focusing on battles we are not equipped for. We listen to those that disqualify us and lose interest in our God giving calling. Like David, we must be wise to avoid the enemy sent distractions and aim high at our God given assignments. Understand God doesn’t call the qualified or equipped, He equips and qualifies the called….so whatever it is you feel called to this season by God, step into it by faith aiming high and looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith.
