I'm convinced that the Lord wants people to live their potential - to flesh out their calling..THEIR individual, unique, unlike anyone else, God's holy divine calling.
I believe it flatters God and brings Him MORE glory when we flesh out our life's calling through His eyes NOT the perspective of books we've read, people we look up to, great spiritual mentors....but the Lord...God of individuality. He's authentic.
We can easily want spiritual giant's stories...even refer our lives to stories in the Bible (as it is suppose to be used as a training tool).. We can dream with the help of others stories and covet what others have accomplished...we can flesh out our callings while trying to ailign our life in the back of our mind with those we desire to be like. However God wants to write NEW STORIES OF FAITH AND MIRACLES. HE WANTS TO BE IN THE FOREFRONT OF YOUR MIND AND HIS WORDS AND DIRECTION TO EMCOMPASS YOUR WHOLE MIND. HE WANTS YOU TO BE LIKE HIM...LIKE WHAT HE WANTS FOR YOU.
Be cautious not to seek out others life...God has specific uniqueness solely for you to flesh out. When we find ourselves being much like others rather than God's fulfillment..we will grow weary FAST!
"Do you know the saying, "Drink from your own rain barrel, draw water from your own spring-fed well"? It's true. Otherwise, you may one day come home and find your barrel empty and your well polluted." Proverbs 5:15
Be cautious to share your calling and dreams with others, but rather fulfill them and be faithful to DAILY WALK JESUS TALK. Get your daily bread and flesh out each day...
"Do you know the saying, "Drink from your own rain barrel, draw water from your own spring-fed well"? It's true. Otherwise, you may one day come home and find your barrel empty and your well polluted." Proverbs 5:16
I repeat - I do believe God is the MOST glorified and flattered when we walk in His perspective, which can only be gotten when we seek Him daily, be still and know He is God and walk in obedience.
Let's praise an authentic God as we flesh out our OWN STORY.
