When You Really Think About It…

“…Abraham was only one man when I called him.
    But when I blessed him, he became a great nation.”

Isaiah 51:2

When you really think about it, who we are is because of God’s blessings. Without them we’re just lackluster individuals, living without any zeal for life.

Abraham was just a man. Yet God still called him regardless of how that may have looked to others. Regardless of how others may have seen Abraham…God saw him, loved him and made him a great nation.

It can be easy to think that those who are seen as special, or as a unique kind of person will be given those greater opportunities in life. Why? Because they seem to have the “it” factor. That “special” kind of something that will inevitably take them far in life, because well… that’s who they are.

As read in 1 Samuel 16:7 the Lord said, “Don’t judge by his appearance or height, for I have rejected him. The Lord doesn’t see things the way you see them. People judge by outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”

The issue is, we think only some people in life are going to be given those “privileges” to experience life to the fullest. The truth is when we know Jesus we are immediately experiencing more and called to more. If you are wanting more out of life, go get it. We get that by chasing after the heart of the Lord.

Nobody knows you, your heart, or your heart’s deepest desires like Christ.

and “if God is for you, then who can be against you” is something you truly believe…what’s stopping you?
