Psalm 139: 14
I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, and my soul knows it very well.
Worship begins with being grateful for what God has already given. Do you know that you are a result of His divine creation? Do you know how special you really are; how uniquely made; how gifted? Are you aware of how much potential you have; how much you can love; what you can do; who you can touch; what a difference you can make? It’s far beyond what you can imagine … but try. Then – worship
Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.
In the desert mountains dying of thirst, you come across a well with a note that says, “Pump works – needs priming. Under rock, there’s a jar of water – just enough to prime the pump, but not if you drink any first. When finished, please fill jar and leave it for the next person.” Each day we’re faced with the question of how much of ourselves we should give away. A tenth? Half? Do we dare to give everything? Whatever amount you’re called to give, get ready to be blessed by God’s provision.
“Now glory be to God, who by His mighty power at work within us is able to do far more than we would ever dare to ask or even dream of — infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, or hopes.”
You have a dream. Scared, apprehensive, even doubtful, you go for it. You stretch yourself beyond what you thought you were ever capable of. You run faster. You lift more than you’ve ever lifted. And then you fall short, stopped dead in your tracks, dream unfulfilled. Remember – the greatest good meets with the greatest adversity. Get back up. Step out in faith. Trust God for the details and reach for the goal. Ready, set, go!
