I am convinced that each person is called to a measure to greatness, authority, and power. Often times, if not all the time, that measure of greatness is determined not by an individuals circumstances, upbringing, and opportunities handed to them on a silver platter - but by determination, choices, and perseverance. If you have known Jesus Christ for any period of time, or even if you don't know him - you most likely have dreams in your heart that seem, or people tell you, are impossible. I am coming to understand that the very word "impossible" is completely relative upon a person's willingness to dream and then apply practical application with incremental, defined goals leading and building toward that dream until it is accomplished. In other words, your dream can be accomplished by going after it daily.
It's like saving money. You have to start with a dollar. Then two, five, ten, twenty! Then you manage a hundred, two hundred, a thousand! If you manage to have enough self-control, you can get there! You can do it!
I encourage you today, whether you believe it or not, you are called to greatness! If you have Jesus Christ living on the inside of you - you are already great (to say the very least) by default. You have the power and limitless resource of the living God on the inside of you! Walk in it. Build it. Do it!
I'm going to be talking about this more in depth in upcoming posts! So stay tuned!
