To do what you are capable of
… and be who you should be,
is not up to God, but is up to you!
We all have dreams and visions that we want to achieve,
… dreams and visions that God wants to help us achieve,
but waiting for God to make it happen, does not work!
For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works,
which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.
God has prepared all that is necessary for you to achieve your dreams,
… and to walk in those visions He has put in your heart.
But you have to be where He can do that in your life.
If you don’t receive what Jesus has done for you,
If you don’t become what God created you to be,
If you don’t take your place in God’s kingdom that you have in Christ,
Then God cannot do in your life whatever He planned to do,
Jesus cannot be in your life
… all that His death on the cross procured for you.
Jesus in Luke 15 gave us a great example in the parable of the prodigal son.
The son thought he himself could make something out of his life,
… but all his efforts were in vain and he wasted all he had,
So he made the best decision of his life; to go back to his father.
The son realised that only if he went home,
… could he get help from his father.
The son did not expect that his father would receive him as a son,
… all he was hoping for was to be received as a servant!
However, the father had no expectations of the son,
… but had been waiting, longing for the return of his son,
… ready to restore him, and to be able to bless him abundantly.
So when the son returned, the father ran to him and embraced him with joy,
… because at last he had his son, who was lost, back,
… and could bless him with all he had prepared and made ready for him!
The Father is waiting, are you on the way home?
