Motivation for the Day:
Deuteronomy 31:6 (NKJV):
Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the LORD your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.” [Emphasis added]
Sometimes it is difficult to be brave and step out to do something that is outside our comfort zone, but when we decide to NOT take that chance and do something to change our current circumstances, we are left with “what would have happened if I had decided to take that chance, that step, that leap of faith?” questions.
How can you know your full potential if you shy away from taking calculated risks and chances to improve your status quo? You have to determine if where you are right now is a place that you are satisfied with. Ask yourself Is this really my LEVEL BEST? If the answer is no, then you have to question what it is that you are not doing to advance your capacity to do more and achieve above average? Those that aren’t operating at their level best have settled for less and are typically the ones that grumble and complain about those that end up being the over-achievers and over-comers. I’ll be the first and confess that I’ve been one of those complainers *blush*, but consider this — Over achievers did something the complainer didn’t, they took that step of COURAGE and chartered themselves into new territory.
We ask God to enlarge our territory all the time, but we forget that He helps those that help themselves! Take Initiative and You step out and take that leap of FAITH and see your territory increase. Think of Peter who stepped out of the boat to walk on water towards Jesus (Matthew 14:29), or Moses who had to take the children of Israel across the Red sea and watched how the waters divide (Exodus 14:21-22). God was with them all that time during the process and it all started with them deciding to take the initative and do what has never been done before. They had the COURAGE to step out in FAITH. If you want to see change in your life you have to decide to have the courage to take a leap of Faith and see what happens.
Miracles are derived from Faith in ACTION.
Do you know that it only starts with just one step?
If you want to have an over-coming attitude, you have to be sick and tired of being sick and tired of where you are right now. You can change the course of your monotony by breaking out of the cycle of routine and exchange it for something better. Decide to STEP OUT and take a risk. You can only know what is on the other side of the fence if you jump over it. Deciding to be less than the best is actually confirming that you don’t want to be what God wants you to be. How can you reflect God’s image if you are accepting the lie that “you can never amount to be what you are meant to be?” .
Stop accepting LESS THAN THE BEST and look FOWARD TO THE BEST THAT IS YET TO COME.
You can change your status quo and take courage and be brave and do what has never been done before. You CAN DO this if only you BELIEVE. Faith takes you to increase, Unbelief locks you from the promise. Remember, that prosperity isn’t just having stuff, it’s an ATTITUDE. It’s an attitude that believes in the Jeremiah 29:11 promise.
This is my encouragement for myself and for you today. Stay Blessed everyone!
