THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
GOD DOESN’T NEED YOUR TALENT, ABILITY OR EDUCATION. HE NEEDS FOR YOUR FAITH TO GET IN AGREEMENT WITH HIM
When God brought the Israelites out of slavery in Egypt, He said the Promised Land was theirs to go in and POSSESS. He promised they would DEFEAT every enemy and come into ABUNDANCE. But when the ten spies came back with the report that the people were too BIG and POWERFUL, the people became AFRAID and wanted to go back to being SLAVES. Instead of staying with a committed FAITH in the PROMISE, they dragged their feet in UNBELIEF. What happened? They never made it into the Promised Land because the promised HOPE wasn’t mixed with FAITH.
God’s promises give us HOPE. What YOU’RE mixing with the PROMISES will determine whether they come ALIVE, and you see God’s favor and blessing and receive everything He’s PROMISED. The SCRIPTURE says, “Without FAITH it’s impossible to PLEASE God.” He doesn’t necessarily NEED your talent, your ability, or your education. He needs your FAITH to get in AGREEMENT with Him, to take that PROMISE and BELIEVE it will come to PASS.
Hebrews 6:11–12, MSG
I want each of you to extend that same intensity toward a full-bodied hope and keep at it till the finish. Don’t drag your feet. Be like those who stay the course with committed faith and then get everything promised to them.
