THE PRICE OF YOUR FUTURE
Can you pay a big price for something that is not even mapped out yet? For something you haven’t seen, and maybe can’t even explain or define?
Can you sell out for something simply because you do not have the option to remain where you are? If you are going to follow Jesus, that’s exactly what you will have to do. Abraham did.
Now the Lord had said to Abram: “Get out of your country, From your family, And from your father’s house, To a land that I will show you. I will make you a great nation; I will bless you And make your name great; And you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” – Genesis 12:1-4
The Bible tells us Abraham was 75 years old when he left the only home he’d ever known for a land and a destiny he really couldn’t even wrap his mind around. He just knew he couldn’t stay where he was. He trusted that God was good and had something better for him in that unknown.
Because Abraham was obedient and went after God’s promise of a future for him and his descendants, who weren’t even born yet and, let’s face it, were a long shot as his wife, Sarah, couldn’t have children, he was blessed.
Then the Lord appeared to Abram and said, “To your descendants I will give this land.” And there he built an altar to the Lord, who had appeared to him. – Genesis 12:7
All of heaven is ready to applaud your rare courage and your amazing vision for bigger and better when you go after your upgrade just like Abraham did. You have one, you know. God didn’t forget to give you a great big destiny. You just have to look for it, like an Easter egg that your loving Daddy hides for you to find.
Let Him delight in your search for your life’s purpose – your Kingdom purpose – where you let heaven invade earth through your service. Your destiny is the place where His will can be done in and through you.
And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified. – Romans 8:28-30
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO SELL OUT FOR THE UNKNOWN OF YOUR NEXT UPGRADE. YOUR KINGDOM PURPOSE IS CALLING. IT’S TIME TO GO AFTER IT.
