“For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live].” Ephesians 2:10 (Amplified)
There’s more to life than what you have been experiencing. It’s time you go deeper, higher, and extend your reach. Growth takes place in every direction simultaneously. The deeper you go in God, the higher you will go and the farther you will reach out to bless others, but when you shrink back in fear you cause your own destruction. Let God begin to grow you in every direction. Let Him give you an identity, a purpose, abundant grace and glory. The moment you stop spending time with God, you will notice everything else begins to stop also. You no longer grow upwards or outwards when you disconnect yourself from Him. When you stop, everything stops. That’s why you must choose to persevere by faith because there is more to life then what you have been experiencing. There is so much God wants for you, but you must allow yourself to be stretched. Let God grow you in every direction. Deepen your walk with Him. Let Him take you higher. Let Him expand your reach. Let Him be glorified in your life.
Prayer: Thank You Father for growing me in every direction. I want to be all that You created me to be. I want to grow in You. I want my faith to be deepened. I desire You to take me higher and extend my reach. Grow me Lord in every way. Use me to bring glory to Your name. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
