When it comes to aspirations, it’s not about ideas. It’s about making ideas happen. What’s your next step?
(Author: Scott Belsky)
This is difficult. I feel like I have so many aspirations and then when I sit down to start naming them so that I can define the action steps necessary they all of a sudden seem not so concrete. That is frustrating.
One of my aspirations is to really believe what the Bible says. I mean, really believe. So when I say that God is Jehovah Jireh I want to really believe that He will provide when finances are tight and I don’t know where they’ll come from. Or believing that He is my Savior in a such way that I actually act like someone who has been freed from the bondage of sin and guilt and fear.
I went to a women’s breakfast at Franklin Tabernacle and one of the ladies shared a story of how her grandson was healed from cancer. His mom posted scriptures up all over the room and made it a rule that no one shed any tears. Her son was going to be healed and she was relying on a supernatural faith.
I’m not there, yet. I know it. I’m taking steps though.
I spent the afternoon looking up verses about providing, obedience, praise and fear. I wrote them down on cardstock. In some verses I replaced pronouns with mine or Mark’s name. I’m posting these verses in our kitchen, living room, bathroom and bedroom. Anywhere that we spend time. I’m taking a page out of the supernatural faith playbook and I’m going to combat our spiritual cancer with His word.
That’s just step one. Hopefully.
I will praise you, LORD,
with all my heart
and tell about the wonders
you have worked.
God Most High, I will rejoice;
I will celebrate and sing
because of you.
