YOU SHALL MAKE IT
Job 8:7 – And though you started with little, you will end with much. (NLT)
No one is born with instant wealth or success because life is a process, and everyone has a destiny to fulfil (Ephesians 2:10). Today’s Bible reading indicates that God is an advocate of small beginnings. But occasionally, some situations might hinder the attainment of divine purpose. For example, in 1 Chronicles 4:9-10, Jabez was given a contrary name because his mother gave birth to him in sorrow. However, after Jabez realised that he was meant to be great, he prayed, and his story changed.
There is a God who can help you accomplish your dreams regardless of the difficulties. David might never know that he would become king if God had not discovered him in the backyard (1 Samuel 16:8-13). Peter could not have thought he could return home with loads of fish if Jesus did not come to the rescue (Luke 5:1-7). Therefore, don’t be carried away by the mountains in your life, career, or marriage. There will be glory after the pain if you look only to Jesus (Hebrews 12:1-2).
Beloved, maybe you have been limiting yourself or mocked due to issues that have made you feel like a nonentity. Hold on and know that your present position does not define who you are. Never allow your circumstance to create a boundary for you, thereby making you associate with negative-minded people (Psalms 1:1). Surround yourself with folks that fear God and motivate you. Conclusively, since it is a tiny seed that makes a tree and later becomes a forest, don’t stop doing your best because very soon, the world shall come to your rising.
Hymn: Higher Ground – Johnson Oatman, Jr. (1898)
1. Father, in any way I have belittled You or myself, please forgive me.
2. Lord, do a wonder that will advertise Your glory in me.
1. Father, bind me, my family, nation, and the Church together in love.
2. Holy Spirit, open my eyes to the things that will thrust my life and business forward.
3. Every secret or open grave dug for me, swallow your diggers.
“ANYTIME YOU LOOK DOWN ON YOURSELF, YOU LIMIT GOD.”
