11 "You are worthy, O Lord our God, to receive glory and honor and power. For you created all things, and they exist because you created what you pleased." - Revelation 4:11 NLT
Hello family, many of us have asked the question “why did God create us?” and many the answer we find is to give Him glory. But that answer has become so cliche and common that it leaves little impact. We don't truly see the magnitude of it.
"My mind is a center of Divine operation. The Divine operation is always for expansion and fuller expression, and this means the production of something beyond what has gone before, something entirely new, not included in past experiences, though proceeding out of it. Therefore, since the Divine cannot change it's inherit nature, it must operate in the same manner with me; consequently, in my own special world, of which I am the center, it will move forward to produce new conditions, always in advance of any that have gone before.” - Thomas Troward
When my pastor read that quote a switch flipped. God, our heavenly Father wants to move through us. Not just move and operate through us but operate through us on progressively higher levels. Didn’t christ say that those who believe in Him will do greater things that what what he has done (see John 14:12)?
Family God is already operating in us and it is awesome! But imagine if we stopped boxing God in and say “ok God here is all of my life here is my Whole heart. What if we would stop letting our carnal mind plant doubts in us and we moved when God told us to move on the things that don't make sense but we know it is God telling us to do them!
13 For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength. - Philippians 4:13 NLT
Our only limit is God. He governs us in the things He wants us to do. God has given us all a space, a mission for us to be a canvas for His glory. Yesterday we read about Paul encouraging Timothy to stir up the Gift of God in him. Give God full free rein to move through the gifts He has given you even the hidden unknown ones.
We were created in Gods image. He empowers us to reflect his glory Our life is God’s canvas, stop holding the paintbrushes hostage and let Him paint his wonders on you!
Much Love & God Bless
