There are so many things in life that we can be negative about! Everywhere you go people seem to be focusing on the negative! And in reality there are so many negative things happening all around us that cause fear and anxiety to grip your heart.
When I look around at what has happened in our lives over the years, I recognize that we have had many challenges and still do. But somehow within those challenges, I see how many miracles we have experienced! How far we have come!
Nobody really knows what it cost you to even get where you are now! And many will never know the story of just how much God and you have accomplished in His strength. But that’s okay! One day it will be seen by all, for God’s glory!
I know we all still have a long way to go, but God wants you to know today that you have come a lot further than you ever realized! And maybe sometimes you wonder, just when are you going to get that breakthrough that God has promised? But in looking for the BIG breakthrough, you are missing out on all the little ones!
I believe God wants to honor you today! I sense in my spirit that God wants your thinking to shift away from looking back and seeing those times you might have failed, or those seriously hectic times you never thought you would survive through, and even those times you should have been dead!
He is wanting you today to look at how far you have come, how many times He came through for you in that eleventh hour, how all those around you expected you to not make it, but miraculously you did, the times when people looked down on you, because they didn’t know better!
Others will want what you have, but are not prepared to pay the price you have paid. Suddenly, you will see those very same people wonder just how did you do it. God wants you to see those miracles and remember them, even now!
As you shift your thinking to those things, you will cause a gratefulness to rise up in your heart, and suddenly you will begin to see and experience the most treasured things imaginable!
You will know and tangibly feel, that you are SO loved! And you will daily experience the fruit of that love! You will see and experience that God specializes in doing the impossible, and that He doesn’t only do it for others, but RIGHT NOW He is doing it for you! Why? Simply because God absolutely adores you! He loves you more than any love you can ever imagine!
And He is saying, “I am so proud of you! You could have given up, but you chose not too! Great is your reward, even in this life!”
