God Wants Us.

I am amazed to think that the God Who created the entire universe wants to use me and even better, get to know me! With God, there are limitless opportunities. But there is another thing which baffles my mind. It is the fact that we in our pride and arrogance choose to defy our Creator and live as we please. It is amazing that God wants us, but I suppose it is even more amazing we reject being used by God.

John 3:16 King James Version (KJV)

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Greatness

God created us to do great things through Him, yet we settle for the mediocre. Because mediocrity is easy, and being great is hard, stretching, and challenging. We do not want to put forth the effort; therefore we choose to be comfortable. As we sit comfortably, we marvel at those doing great things when they are simply doing what God created them to do. Choose the hard, challenging, stretching road, because in the end, being comfortable is unfulfilling and worthless. Be who God made you to be through His Greatness.

Joshua 1:8 King James Version (KJV)

This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.
