Envision big things for your life because God already does.
But it can be hard to do that at times when your current circumstances are
anything but great. When things don’t seem to be working out and you are
having a bad day, week, month or year. But no matter how negative your circumstances
are at the moment the truth is, God has amazing things prepared for you. And we see
this truth all throughout scripture.
Before Abraham was called by God what kind of life was he imagining for himself? Let me
change that a little bit.
“Before God intervened in Abraham’s life.”
We don’t really know. But what we do know is that God took him outside and told him to look up
and try to count the stars if he could.
“He took him outside and said, “Look up at the sky and count the stars-if indeed you can count
them. Then He said to him, “So shall your offspring be.”
What was happening there?
God was helping Abraham see something bigger for his life.
What about Gideon?
Before the Lord intervened in his life he thought he was the least of the least. We know that
because when the angel of the Lord called him a “mighty man of valor” Gideon told him what
he had known all his life.
“Pardon me, my lord, Gideon replied, but how can I save Israel? My clan is the weakest in
Manasseh, and I am the least in my family.”
But once again, God showed him a bigger picture. He helped Gideon see differently and that’s
another thing to note. We need the Lord’s help to see all that He has for us. After all, He is the
one who created us and our purpose.
He is the one who has prepared the amazing things we are going to walk in.
And that is why we need to envision something different for our lives.
Don’t the let the difficult and negative circumstances blind you to what God has in store for you.
Keep hoping, and trusting Him.
Envision something different for your life because He already does!
Bless you friends!
