The goal in life is not to try and live forever, but to create something that will live forever in people’s hearts. – Karon Waddell
The potential for greatness lives within each of us. God’s plan for your life will often come through unexpected events that push you in a direction you would never have gone on your own.
As Christians, we don’t believe things happen by chance. We believe God’s plan prevails. Overnight, God placed the orphan girl Esther in the palace. Esther’s plan for her life probably didn’t include being queen. While Esther dreamed of an ordinary life, God was orchestrating an extraordinary life. While she was planning everyday things, God was planning supernatural opportunities for her. God sees the potential you possess and when you follow his plan, you end up going places you could never have dreamed of and accomplishing more than you ever imagined.
Greatness comes from the desire to do extraordinary things – to reach beyond the status quo and relentlessly chase your dreams. It all starts with setting and achieving goals, but when you aim higher than where you set your mark, you force yourself to get better, one victory at a time.
I declare unexpected blessings are coming my way. I will move forward from barely making it to having more than enough. God will open up supernatural doors for me. He will speak to the right people about me. I will see, (Ephesians 3:20) exceedingly, abundantly, above-and-beyond favour and increase in my life.
“Now we have this treasure in clay jars, so that this extraordinary power may be from God and not from us.” 2 Corinthians 4:7
