Less than 24 hours and turkey day will be upon us. We have so much to be thankful for. Let me encourage you to dwell on what you have, not on what don't have. It is something I practice, otherwise our joy can be quickly taken away.
Today look at John 14:12 with me...
He who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will also do; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the Father.
Intimidating, challenging, frightening, encouraging words to say the least all rolled up into one delicious sandwich.
Intimidating in that Jesus is telling us that whatever He did on earth we would be given an opportunity to do even more!
Challenging in that we ought to live our lives in such a way as to be up for the assignments God has for us from day to day.
Frightening, in that life matters, our work on earth matters, my time matters, my words matter, everything has an eternal implication.
Encouraging in that He trusts us, He empowers us, He fills us with His Holy Spirit, He gifts us, He leads us, He guides us, He strengthens us, He is the focus not us.
Be encouraged today, God has great faith in you, a great plan for you, a great mission for you, a great future for you. Happy Thanksgiving!
