When God looks at you He sees someone who does not need to feel as limited as you do. Ephesians 3 talks about God as being able to do ‘immeasurably more than all we could ask or imagine’ [vs 20].

Perhaps the things we ask or imagine are too small. What is something that you feel is a thing of God’s kingdom that feels impossible or too big to even hope for? Why not take some moments today to ask God to give you the faith to believe in, pray for and work towards that thing happening?

God wants you to be someone who has enough. In Matthew 6 Jesus tells us to ‘Seek first His kingdom and His righteousness and all these things will be given to you as well.’

If you read the whole chapter you will see that the ‘these things’ Jesus talks about is your basic needs in life. He doesn’t promise riches or fame or lots of things. But what God does say is that if you make the things of Him your number one priority, He will make sure that you are never in need. Isn’t that a comforting thought?

One thing God believes about us is that we are His children. 1 John 3:1 reminds us of that by saying, ‘How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God.’

When we start to view ourselves as God’s children and not simply followers, it brings a certain intimacy that will transform how we live out the things God has called us to do. Instead of being obedient to God from a place of duty, it becomes a place of love. Suddenly living a life that is pleasing to God becomes so much more desirable.

Under construction

In my day job, I get to see construction sites a lot. I love seeing something old and broken being turned into something new and inviting.

In some ways God does the same with us. He takes our broken hurting sinful selves and uses us for His glory. Paul puts it this way “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” (Ephesians 2:10). Today, meditate on verses 1-10 and thank God for how He has changed you. Why don’t you ask Him what good works He’s prepared for you today?
