Leaning Forward

"Can I shake your hand?"

Top of Mt Elgon, Kenya

Be careful not to dismiss your dream too quickly… it may be a vision of your future. God has dropped His plans into the hearts of many “chosen” individuals who missed their calling simply because they treated the plans like “wishful-thinking” or “fantasy”. We must consider the possibility that God may be trying to break into our lives with revelation and purpose.

You are God’s Favorite Child!

As a Child of God; you have incredible potential, that when it begins to be unlocked carries supernatural power. The real key is “belief” …can you believe the impossible is truly possible in Christ? If so then anything can happen… its for those who believe.

Keep Leaning Forward:

Hesitation is fine for a moment, especially if you are taking an inventory of your skills and growth process; but it can become a subtle form of rebellion. You may feel uncomfortable stepping out in faith or you may feel a sense of fear at the possible risks involved; but God is the God of the breakthrough. Breakthroughs come one step at a time. If you continue to lean into His love and embrace, you will realize God knows your heart better than you do. He knows how to accomplish the biggest tasks even when we feel like a fool attempting them.

“…many are called, but few are chosen” (Mt 22:14)

Jesus makes this comment  to say, “don’t miss your chosen-ness”! There will always be a cynical crowd; who having seen the opportunity, drew-up short because of unbelief. They never affirmed the calling nor took to heart the inner prompting of the Holy Spirit; therefore, they speak as those who missed their engagement with heaven. Don’t let that be you.

The writer of Hebrews said, “We are not of those who draw back to perdition, but of those who believe to the saving of the soul.” (Heb 10:39)

You will fail, but your destiny is not perdition or doom, judgement or condemnation. We are called to live our lives leaning into the abundant life of Christ, free and confident. Just to answer the question “what if I fail?” Let me tell you from experience - you will fail! While you begin to see His plans emerge from within your “dream”, you will have doubts and frustrations.

But… God is faithful!

Maybe I should repeat that phrase… God is faithful! The plan was never to bring glory to your name, but to fulfill His wonderful purpose on planet Earth. His love for you and His power inside gives you the courage to allow the Holy Spirit to wear you like a glove. You have the heart within, dig for it. Lean forward and God will allow all that you were made for to be seen in the trail that you blaze.
