Read Day 15 in Come With Me Devotional
I have high hopes every time.
I write down projected numbers. I create goals. I make plans. I work hard.
And then it takes its own course.
Isn’t that frustrating? We’d love to know exactly what the outcome will be. What should be an amazing adventure is fraught with stress. It either makes us soar or plummet.
In either case, we might miss the real miracle.
Jesus defines success differently than we do. I don’t think we’ll realize the depth of that statement until eternity. I believe there will be dropped jaws as we see how God used something that wasn’t a “success” to change the heart of many. Or how the real miracles were hidden from us, even when it went exactly like we hoped.
Our invitation today is to experience our real miracle.
In today’s video blog, I share what success really means, and how we can celebrate the real miracles taking place.
21 Life Changing Invitations as We Walk with Jesus
Invitation #15: Experience the real miracle
- Describe the world’s definition of success (in any area).
- How has that definition shaped your view of yourself or or your view of what you do?
- Ask the Holy Spirit to redefine “success” in your heart, and in what you do for God.
- Celebrate something you’ve done that had eternal impact. Share that with us. Let us celebrate with you!
Sometimes we struggle to feel enough because we need mending. Junk from the past still weighs us down. Old words have shaped our impossible view of ourselves. We are working hard to prove ourselves, when all God wants is for us to be free.
