Remember when you were a child and you imagined all the great things you would do when you were an adult. You had your entire life planned even with your limited worldly views. You did not allow your lack of wisdom to detour your plan for your life. You were sure about EVERYTHING you wanted.
“Therefore, let us, as many as are mature, have this mind; and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal even this to you.”-Philippians 3:15
As an adult, we have lived our lives filled with ideas, experiences, knowledge and pain. We often have used these things to protect ourselves instead using them to allow growth and build ourselves. We have stopped imagining what life could be like. We simply move through a routine and call it life. That is not what God intended for His children while on this Earth.
“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.”-Ephesians 3:20
We begin to assume we have lived our lives and we are currently living out all the destiny God has planned for us. Or maybe, we completely missed it all together. We are unable to recognize the small moments because we are too busy seeking out the big ones. What is not being looked for, will almost always be missed if you are searching for something else.
Pastor Salena spoke of destiny moments and how sometimes the smallest occurrence can be the biggest blessing. We use our very limited brain to decide what we want or what is good for us without remembering God is bigger than all of our ideas combined. He can do for us what we could NEVER even conjure up inside of our heads. We think if we cannot imagine the possibility of something happening, then we have no right to ask for it from our Father. That is not how faith works. We must reimagine our life in such a gigantic way only God can create for us and in turn make people crave the relationship with Him because they see all the good, He will do. We must keep fresh in our hearts what He previously provided for us, so our desires do not become stagnant. Changing your mindset is a journey like anything else which is worth anything in this world. We must not ever become so tired of doing good in the waiting we decide maybe God won’t show up after all. We know better! He always shows up!
