Inside every one of us is the yet to be realized man or woman of God we were meant to be.
Meant for more
You were meant for something more. I believe in your heart of hearts you know this. Let this phrase become the banner that is raised over your life. Let these words resonate in the depth of your soul, that you would become who were always meant to be.
Do not simply embrace this truth, but walk in it. Do not simply learn how to change, but change. You have no idea of all the great and wonderful things the Lord has in mind for you.
Many, O Lord my God, are Your wonderful works Which You have done; And Your thoughts toward us Cannot be recounted to You in order; If I would declare and speak of them, They are more than can be numbered. Psalm 40:5 NKJV
Inside every one of us is the yet to be realized man or woman of God we were meant to be. As long as we are not what we should be, we will not be satisfied. Most go through life seeking, but never finding. Most get to a point where they think there is nothing more. But there is something more.
To reach higher, you must go higher. But to go higher, you must believe that you can. And this is the fork in the road where we all come to. Where we realize that we cannot ascend higher on our own. There are only two choices you can make, you can give up and live out the defeated life, or you can rely upon Christ alone, surrendering to Him, and then you will live out the life of victory.
You were meant for something more. God is either the meanest Creator ever, placing in man a desire for something which he could never achieve. Or God is the grandest Orchestrator of all times, putting in man the desire for something grand, and then giving him everything he needs to achieve it.
The depth of your soul longs for something greater, something grander, and something wonderful. And that Something is only in our Lord Jesus. Who you are in Christ is who you were meant to be. It’s not just a little better you, it is a new you. He does not take away your identity, rather He clarifies your true identity.
“…put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him” (Colossians 3:10).
You are an image bearer, and that image is Jesus.
Our something more is not of us, but Him in us.
We need to get to the point where we actually see that what Jesus said, He really meant. And that we can really do what He said we can do. And that we can really become who He said we could become. He was serious.
The scariest part about the truth of Scripture is that it is really true. But the funny part is that once we realize this, in that very instant we will find there is nothing to fear anymore at all, because it is all true! It is the paradigm shift that anyone can do, but only one in a thousand will.
Be that one in a thousand.
Dare to live a life surrendered to Christ, that His life would then reign in you.
Be the something more that you were meant to be.
