Topic: God Sees Your Possibilities
Scripture: Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected, but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. — Philippians 3:12 (NKJV)
None of us is perfect. In fact, we’re sometimes painfully aware of our weaknesses and imperfections, but God always looks at us through the eyes of possibility. He not only sees where we can grow, but He sees who we can become, and He’s always hopeful about our future. It can take a long time for us to truly understand the hope God has for us, but I pray you’ll begin that journey today.
To realize how much hope God can have for a person, all I have to do is think about what I was like when He called me into full-time ministry. When God began using me to minister to others, I was so far from perfect, it was almost laughable. When I started leading that home Bible study, I was wearing short shorts and smoking—while I was teaching!
Thank God He didn’t wait until I was “fixed” before He started working in me and through me to help people. He looked beyond what my current reality was at the time and saw the potential of who I would become with His help. He started changing me right where I was, and He’ll do the same for you.
Prayer Starter: Lord, help me to remember that when You see me, You see the possibilities and hope for my future that I can’t see. Thank You for patiently working with me and helping me grow today. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
