No matter what weakness you think you may have, no matter what inadequacies or setbacks you’ve encountered, God wants to give you His divine strength. He wants to make up the difference and put you further ahead than you ever thought possible.
One time in the Old Testament, God simply multiplied the sound of four men’s footsteps and caused them to sound like a mighty army. When their enemies heard them, they took off running. There were thousands of enemy troops running for their lives, scared to death, thinking they were being attacked by a massive army when in fact, it was just four people! What happened? God made up the difference.
Friend, God can make you seem bigger than you really are. He can make you look more powerful. He knows how to multiply your influence, your strength, your talent and your income. You don’t have to figure it all out; all you have to do is put your trust in Him. If you will trust Him and wake up every day expecting His far and beyond favor, then you’re going to see Him make up the difference in every area of your life!
Oftentimes, God will use our experiences in life as stepping stones to prepare us for what He has in store next. Scripture tells us that He’ll even take the things the enemy tries to bring against us and turn them around and use them for our good. He is always leading us on a journey of preparation.
That’s why it’s so important to keep our eyes focused on Him. We have to trust that when we are submitted to Him—even if we don’t understand—He is ordering our steps. If something is not happening on your timetable, remind yourself, “God knows what He is doing. He has my best interest at heart. God is preparing me.” While you’re waiting, don’t make the mistake of trying to figure everything out. If you’re constantly trying to figure things out, that will only frustrate you. Turn it over to God. Declare, “God, my times are in Your hands. I’m not going to worry because I trust that You are leading me on a journey of preparation for all the wonderful blessings You have in store for me.”
Nung mga nakaraang araw, narealize ko na I’m not good at something. Or anything. Bakit ko nasabi? Kasi pag sinabi mong “Shobe”, ang isip agad ng mga tao ay magaling sa pingpong yan, may mga medal nga yan e. Pag sinabi mo namang “Erica”, ay magaling kumanta yan. Pero pag “Celyn” wala lang. HAHAHAHAHA! I was too busy keeping a low profile na hindi ko napansin na dumadaan ang panahon na wala akong nagagawa sa sarili ko na maaalala ng mga tao. Na kapag narinig nila pangalan ko, that I was good at something. Sooo now I have to work on that. Ang drama ko lang. :)))) Pagbigyan. Goodbye!
“I’ve always loved being a part of storytelling. When I was a kid, I loved reading books and disappearing into my head—to take someone else on that journey is what I’ve always wanted to do.”
