We can become very worried about our future. We can fear succeeding even more than failing because of the responsibility to maintain the success. The truth is that when we allow change to occur on the inside, we can handle anything that happens on the outside.
We were created to flourish. God made us unique in His image to steward His purposes. We were plucked from eternity and placed in our time and location for mission. God so loved us that when we lost our way and became separated, He set in place a rescue plan.
Love incarnate came to earth and moved into the neighborhood. Jesus walked amongst us. He embraced us, healed us, fed us and set us free. Jesus suffered dearly for us to the point of laying down His life, so we could receive His identity as God’s beloved children. As we receive Jesus in our heart, we receive endless life.
As we abide in Jesus, we can know the peace of God that transcends understanding, experience fullness of joy in His presence, and find inner contentment that does not depend on outside circumstances. As we grow in the revelation of how loved we are, we will begin to settle into who we are designed to be.
We will find as we are promoted into the “abundantly above all we can hope, think or ask” sphere of influence, we will be the same people we always were - ordinary people who just simply rely on the extraordinary grace of God.
