Let me take you on a quick journey...last night, I was reading "Take the Lid Off" by Pastor Smokie Norful and couldn’t make it past this unforgettable quote: “God, give me the grace to handle Your dream for me.” Then I thought wow, does God dream?!? Does He have a dream for me? What are His aspirations for my life?!? For that answer, I went to Romans 12:2...it starts with a renewed mind. This way I can prove what is the good, acceptable and perfect will of God for my life.
Obviously we know what the word says in Jeremiah 29:11, but that still didn’t immediately cure doubt for me in this instance. Then, I was reminded of a summer over 25 years ago when I discovered Andrae Crouch as a young teen. I knew "MyTribute", but I was sold when I heard "I Didn't Think It Could Be"
That takes me to my final thought, the song says: “I didn’t think it could be until it happened to me!” In Isaiah 55:11, God says that His word will accomplish what He sets it out to accomplish and will prosper in the place/thing (in my life) where He sent it! For many of us on the journey of purpose and destiny, it’s hard to grasp the goodness of God...but receive it, it’s yours!!!!
There, that settles it and with that my prayer is (now, with confidence): “God, give me the grace to handle your dream for me!” Thanks, Pastor Smokie Norful for such a great read and revelation!!!
