You Can Be What You Want To Be

There is inside you all of the potential
to be whatever you want to be...
all of the energy to do whatever
you want to do.
Imagine yourself as you would like to be,
doing what you want to do,
and each day, take one step towards
your dream.
And though at times it may seem too
difficult to continue,
hold on to your dream.
One morning you will awake to find
that you are the person you dreamed of...
doing what you wanted to do...
simply because you had the courage
to believe in your potential
and to hold on to your dream.

Psalm 133:7

"He lifts the poor from the dust and the needy from the garbage dump." Psalm 133:7

All these things the Lord does through angels and these angels that I am talking about are not the one we expect as we read from the bible the account of angels with wings and some with three heads.

These angels that God uses for this task of lifting the poor and the needy are earthly human being.

Unlike many of us these angels are not just regular human beings, only one thing make them extraordinary and that thing is their willingness to partner with God in delivery a miracle to a soul in need.

Our God is a miracle working God and He is always looking for willing soul in which to deliver a miracle to someone through. At the end of every miracle there is a delivery agent!

if you have ever experienced a miracle before, take time to track back through the steps of what happened and you will find that there was a delivery man or woman involved in the manifestation of your miracle experience.

Someone opened His\Her heart and said to the Lord "use me today to become an answer to someone's prayer out there" and seeing their willingness to serve God answered that particular prayer you have been asking for so long.

It was because someone chooses to halt their needs and desire yours where meet.

For the Israelites to receive a miracle of being freed from 400 years of slavery God used Moses for a job that God Himself would have completed in one day all because Moses Had a willing and faithful heart.

For Saul to defeat the Philistines God used a small shepherd boy David who had a heart of a lion and said to God "Send me to do your will", God uses ordinary people to become extraordinary if only they are willing to let Him use them!

Today a Child on the street has been cry out to God for help and God has been searching all over to and fro looking for souls that are will to partner with Him in a miracle delivery.

It time we stop living selfishly and start to serve others, for Jesus came and served us by giving up His life so we can live and have life of abundance.

Sometimes our need should have to wait for others need to be fulfilled.
It is time to open up our hearts in selfless sacrifice and just allow God to us powerfully in becoming someone's unexplainable miracle.

God wants to "lifts the poor from the dust and the needy from the garbage dump." Psalm 133:7 and He is looking to those who are blessed and have "Freely received" to start to "Freely give".

Let us make it our priority to make someone else's day that small kindness your planning to show someone can help them forget all the 10 years of suffering they have gone through, just one day of smiling back at someone [be a stranger or family or friend] can restore hope in that person’s heart.

Even a smile expressed out of love can be a miracle to some of the people out there who are feeling reject and unwanted. Become someone's miracle today!

God is not finished with you yet

“The boy appeared to be dead. A murmur ran through the crowd as people said, “He’s dead” But Jesus took him by the hand and helped him to his feet and he stood up” Mark 9:26b-27

In what type of a situation do you find yourself in today? Do you maybe find yourself in a situation where those around you are telling you that all is finished with you? Are the people around you already judging you dead concerning whatever mess you find yourself in?

Have you been ridiculed and dragged down by people’s words that you will never amount to anything in life? Do not be dismayed my friend, you do not have to get people’s approval to start believing in yourself.

You may appear to be dead right now from the outside, that people can see, but they are missing the only place that counts; your inside, you are more alive on the inside than you or anyone could imagine.

When God breathed Life into you He didn’t breathe a Spirit of failure. The one who breathed life into you is omnipotent, He is extraordinary and from Him only the extraordinary are produced.

When God created you He gave you a command that would shape your whole existence. He said “Fill the earth and govern it” Genesis 1:28b. He didn’t command this the other way round. In you God created someone who would govern, that means He gave you the potential to be great.

You need to start seeing yourself through God’s eyes and not through human eyes. The reason that today you feel so worthless is because you might be “seeing merely from a human point of view,[and] not from God’s [view]” Mark 8:33b.

Yes seeing yourself survive that situation you are in and becoming what you are meant to be “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But not with God. Everything is possible with God.” [Mark 10:27]

Today you might be in a wall of murmur from those around you or even you helping the murmuring along, but you do not have to go on like that! Reach out your hand and let Jesus take you by the hand and help you on your feet so that you can stand up to life again.

God said “I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Before you were born I set you apart" [Jeremiah 1:5] “For I know the plans I have for you…they are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope” [Jeremiah 29:11]

Your whole life it’s a plan from God and nothing that He plans can leave the earth without fulfilling that which He has set it apart to complete.

No matter how dead people say you are, you are alive more than you or they can imagine you were “Set apart” by God for a purpose and “He will never leave you nor forsake you” until you have achieved that which you were “Set apart” to achieve; which is only greatness; from God only extraordinary things are produced!

Going Through

We will all go through situations in life. Many times, we think the phrase: "I'm going through something" is bad news, but if we view it properly, we realize GOING THROUGH is good: It means we are not stuck!! We may be facing difficulties, but at least we are moving forward.

Remember Isaiah 43:2: When you pass through the waters, I will be with you, and through the rivers,they will not overwhelm you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned or scorched, not will the flame kindle upon you."

God's word is Clear: We will go through things. We will face adversities in our lives. That is not bad news. To me it is good news. We grow stronger in our faith. Smile, face your fears and enjoy your challenges.
