Encouraged this week in my praying and reading that God really does want to do something BIG.
In my life.
In my family.
In my Church.
If God desires that for me then He desires it for YOU as well. God really is FOR US.
Paul wrote to the Thessalonians that he was praying for them ‘that by his [God’s] power he may fulfill every good purpose of yours and every act prompted by faith’. [2 Thessalonians 1:11]
So we are back to the need to make space for God to move. To act in FAITH. Without faith it’s impossible to please God. Without any acts prompted by faith God cannot fulfill anything. This is not acts prompted by my own desires but by faith. Challenges the heart: selfish desires v faith filled desires.
Selfish desires make me look good.
Faith filled desires make God look good.
God wants to fulfill every good purpose of mine to make Him look good. To bring glory to His name. To promote Him, not to promote me.
What act prompted by faith do you want to see God fulfill?
