(open your hands to show you are ready to receive):
Father, here I am.
Holy Spirit, take control.
Jesus, my heart belongs to you.
I give you this time.
In the last chapter, we ended with the powerful thought that you are royalty and that the Lion of Judah is calling your name and calling you out - out of a life that is too small for your calling. Out of your addictions, thoughts of inferiority, fears, and lack of purpose. He is doing something new! And He is doing it radically. It is time to stand up and take hold of the life that Jesus so powerfully and victoriously purchased for you and me on the cross.
No compromises. No lies. No religious phrases. But a real, genuine, overflowing life!
My cup overflows.
Where are you in your life right now? Are you lacking on the inside? Is your glass always only half full? Do you no longer expect anything from God?
Write your honest answers to these questions on a piece of paper. Be open with yourself, and write down the first thoughts and feelings that come to your mind. It should be an honest assessment of your heart. Put this piece of paper in an envelope. At the end of the course, you will reread it and I pray that you will recognize how incredible your Heavenly Father is and how He has blessed you throughout the duration of this course.
Now as you embark on this course, expect abundance. God always wants to do more than we can ask or dream of (Ephesians 3:20). Expect great things! Position yourself to receive all the Lord wants to give you.
Before returning to your daily routine, take the time to listen to this song and sing along.
