"The ultimate measure of a man, is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy."
Martin Luther King Jr.
Obstacles Become Opportunities
Ephesians 3:20-21 states: "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, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen."
Over time I have come to realize that often times, we are more aware of our limitations, than we are, when it comes to our own potential. And actually, we get so bad at being our toughest critic, a person could eaisly find themselves creating a long list of what we may think is flawed or lacking from within their life. And honestly, we're so keyed in when it comes to our imperfections, a person may not be able to see beyond the things that we've failed at. So much so, we tend to give up, without putting up any serious effort. And actually, to be constantly aware of the things that we've failed at in life, could cause a person to be blind to all the wondrous things that God has been planning for you.
This is we must learn how to learn and look beyond our limitations.
For I believe that if a person were to do so, then they have truly placed themselves in a position to truly start living.
Make no mistake, God grants you this freedom, when you seek His will and carry it out in prayer.
You never know the heights you could truly reach, or to what extent God can use you, when it comes to doing glorious things from within His name.
It's only when you're willing to open your mind and spirit, when it comes to the powerful influence of His Holy Spirit, that the Lord begins to reveal these things to you.
And I'll tell you this, when you finally discover this out, it will be to your surprise, that God is more than willing, to work through you. And when a person as learn that they can have that type of assurance, than that person is more prone to commit themselves entirely to Him. And once a person has reached this type of breakthrough, then their sense of inferiority, can no longer have a limiting influence on them.
And it doesn't end there, for you'll also discover, that all the riches of God are at your disposal. When you make this discovery, even the obstacles in your life are transformed into precious opportunities that have been brought to you, by the almighty hand of God. When God considers you good enough for His service, don't you dare, make the mistake of underestimating yourself.
Thank you and may you be blessed, by the reading of this Bible devotion and may the will of God be bestowed upon you.
