My Current Status Has Changed..
Because God Has Called Me To Greater
“Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ASK or THINK, according to the power that worketh in us,” Ephesians 3:20
Take a look at where you are now – physically…. God has called you to a greater place. Now consider your vocation or your daily routine…. God has called you to a greater place. Think about your spiritual walk…. God has definitely called you to a greater place! Whatever you have already achieved; whatever you have already accomplished; whatever ground you have already acquired – it just doesn’t matter – God has called you to a greater place!
Therefore, you must now embrace an amended and a refreshed expectation from the Lord, that will give Him no other alternative than to catapult you to your next place that He has already designed just for you! The initial step is to acknowledge that you are called to greater! Then, seek to advance yourselves in the spiritual arena. As you embark upon enhancing your walk in the realm of the Spirit…the manifestation of your “greater” will become a reality in every other area of your life. For far too long we have settled and become “comfortable” in our current state…. Which is always of a lesser degree than that which the Lord has already decreed for our lives! The book of 3rd John (3rd John 2) has already informed us that God’s desire is that we should PROSPER and be HEALTHY. There is one condition….. AS MY SOUL PROSPERS!!! So, in other words; as I increase my spirit man in the concepts, precepts, mannerisms, ideologies etc. of the Lord….. my natural estate will automatically be enhanced!!!!
We must realize that we are all unique yet alike …. But yet different. God hasn’t made any two people from the exact same mold. It has been discovered that even identical twins have at least one distinguishing characteristic. Therefore we must engulf the notion that we are called to operate in our giftings as originals, and not carbon copies of anyone else. I cannot excel to my greater place; spiritually, economically, socially, financially or emotionally until I establish the “God appointed”; unique goals for MY life.
Begin today with the determination that your mind will achieve a “greater place” status. Increase your mental capacity by learning at least one new fact daily. It isn’t necessary that it be spiritual in nature (however that would probably present the superior benefit in the long run!). Advancing to my greater status begins with a thought… which when activated… will become an active reality; and not a dormant dream.
One of the surest and quickest avenues to obtaining my “greater” status is to assist and to push someone else on their road to their destiny. Seeds sown will manifest the same. Whatever I sow – that will I also reap (Galatians 6:7). This is a natural as well as a spiritual law! Luke 6:38 is still relevant! Give and “IT” (what ever the IT is) shall be given to you. Don’t judge – just give! (Matthew 7:1). Don’t be stingy in your giving – because your return will reflect the same (II Corinthians 9:6).
Unless I can realize that I still have a “greater” within me; I will not advance to that place ….. and sadly to say…. When next year arrives… I will be in this same place that I am now!
I would like to challenge you to begin this process NOW. Set daily small, achievable goals for yourself. Be determined that you will no longer just play the cards that have been dealt to you. Demand a whole new deck; because the old deck is marked! Marked with failure, disappointment, pain, ungodly fear, loneliness, low self esteem and the like.
As of today; where ever you go – expect the situations and circumstances to be changed….. simply because you have arrived on the scene …and have brought with you the divine presence of the Holy Ghost! Learn to be like David and encourage yourself! Now.. don’t get heady; but walk in a “boldness” and a level of confidence that demands that the greater status which is within you … be hidden no more!
Dreams are excellent and are necessary – however, the time has now arrived for our dreams to become the manifested reality of the “greater” that we all have within us!
“Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams].” Ephesians 3:20 AMP
