Summary: Don't get caught up in only believing the possibilities of what you have seen in the past! Because no matter where you are at in life, He wants you to dream bigger than your efforts are capable of bringing to the table.
You must be dreaming?
Oral Roberts used to use a chorus that some detested, ‘Expect a miracle every day, Expect a miracle when you pray, If you expect it God will find a way, To perform a miracle for you each day.’
What are you expecting or dreaming about for God to do in your life today?
Maybe it's for your church, maybe it's for someone else, or maybe it's for a need that's present in your own life that needs to be addressed today!
We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose (Romans 8:28, NIV)
No matter what you may be facing, no matter what trial you may be going through, no matter what the accuser may saying over and over to you about how things look.
God has a plan to turn things around in your favor! (Jerm. 29:11)
Your friends and all of society may have written you off as down and out, but God still says that you are up and coming. He is working on your behalf to change the description of your situation to read, "the comeback kid!"
Doesnt matter where youve been, or what you have done, God never quits working His plan in your life. He is at work for us, right to the last moments of our lives.
Luke 23:39-43 MSG.
39. One of the criminals hanging alongside cursed him: "Some Messiah you are! Save yourself! Save us!"
40-41. But the other one made him shut up: "Have you no fear of God? You're getting the same as him. We deserve this, but not him he did nothing to deserve this."
42. Then he said, "Jesus, remember me when you enter your kingdom."
43. He said, "Don't worry, I will. Today you will join me in paradise."
That mans whole life could probably have been a lot easier, then the life he chose to live. We could all say that with conviction. The moment he started to focus on what JESUS could do for him, instead of what he could do, he started to experience the abundant life. (Repeat the last line)
Logic would suggest, that he probably had had several opportunities to do right, before the last one Jesus gave him. But only faith in Jesus, brought him victory in the end!
And what an ending he had! God worked all the things he had done, good and bad together and somehow still good came out in the end, when the man asked for forgiveness and cast his love for Jesus.
In the natural it may be confusing and chaotic sometimes,
but in Gods realm of the supernatural, its not that way,
He has everything under control, He is working behind the scenes, and He is working for your good all the time!
Are you a believer in Jesus? Do you love Him?
Then you are called according to His purposes.
The thief on the cross could've thought what can I do, but in the end he changed his thinking to what CAN I do! And the end result was hope for all of humanity!
In this walk and relationship with God, through Christ Jesus,
Will there be some wrong turns along the way, more than less most likely,
Probably even a few U-turns along the way,
a few impossible doors to open, by Gods design,
