IF NOT YOU, THEN WHO?

Jennifer Cole

Feeling run over, under-appreciated, overlooked, tired of trying? Are you thinking about quitting? Before you do, think about this...

>>Maybe you are exactly where you’re meant to be.

Perhaps every step in your path has worked to position you right where you are, for such a time as this. Just like Esther, who found herself in the right place at the right time to help save many people’s lives, “...who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this” (Esther 4:14 NKJV).

There is something that needs to be done and people who need to be helped, encouraged or led...and maybe that’s exactly why you are where you are -- to have that impact! You can do this! If not you, then who? Keep going, don’t quit...you are here for such a time as this.

Say This: “Father, thank You that You work all things together for my good. I believe You’re positioning me to make a difference and that You will equip me for such a time as this. Help me to rest in You, and please fill my sails with fresh new wind. Help me to keep going and not quit! In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”

GOD BREAKS CHAINS, NOT PROMISES!

Jennifer Cole

Did you know...when God gives you promises, you can take those to the bank! You can stand on His promises, and through faith you can activate them in your life.

When you make the Bible your plumbline...the basis for how you live your life...He will break chains in your life, not His promises. We’ve seen throughout history and still today that He is faithful to perform His Word. For example, in Joshua 21:45 NLT we see: “Not a single one of all the good promises the Lord had given to the family of Israel was left unfulfilled; everything he had spoken came true.”

Take some time to dig into your Bible today -- find out what promises He has for you. Don’t leave any of His gifts to you unwrapped!

Say This: “Father, thank You that Your Word is full of Your promises. Help me to make Bible reading time a priority and help me to learn about all of the promises You have in store for me. I don’t want to miss out on any of the promises You’ve prepared for me, and I’m so grateful for all of these blessings! In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”

FEELING STRETCHED?

Jennifer Cole

Let’s face it...when most people hear the term “stretch marks” they think it’s a bad thing! But I think the ones we get in our soul and spirit as we grow and mature aren’t bad things -- they’re desirable and are a badge of honor!

We’ve all been there...been in seasons where you think if one more meeting is added, one more responsibility, one more crisis or call about family drama, one more anything -- you’re just going to burst. But then...what do you know...you don’t in fact burst. You do get through that season and that situation. Yes, you may have earned some stretch marks from being stretched in ways you never have before...but YOU DIDN’T BREAK. You made it through. And you’re stronger for it!

>>Thank the Lord that He made us with the ability to stretch!

Stretching is uncomfortable, no doubt about it. But it’s essential if we want to do more, help more, grow more, impact more and live out the kind of faith adventure life that God has in store for each of us. Yes, we will each face challenges and trials throughout life on earth but as we draw near to the Lord and grow in our faith, we will overcome those challenges and have the beautiful faith stretch marks as badges of honor!

Be encouraged by this reminder to keep stretching and not give up -- in James 1:3-4 MSG, we read: “You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true colors. So don't try to get out of anything prematurely. Let it do its work so you become mature and well-developed, not deficient in any way.”

Praying for you today, my basics friends, that you will stretch gracefully and come out stronger on the other side of whatever trial or challenge you’re facing. With God on your side, You. Can. Do. This!

Say This: “Father, thank You that You help me to stretch and not break, as I cling to You through the trials and challenges I am facing. Thank You that You will help me through every difficult season, and I will emerge stronger on the other side of it. Lord, I want to grow in my faith and be stretched, so that I will become mature and well-developed, not deficient in any way. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”

FORGET YOUR AGE, LIVE YOUR LIFE!

Jennifer Cole

There are 72 year olds running marathons. 96 year olds still writing books. 10 year olds developing apps. 53 year olds going to med school. 19 year olds running for office. 38 year olds going to the mission field. 25 year olds building houses. 60 year olds starting churches

Age is just a number. Don’t limit what God can do in and through you by letting age be a limitation! Here’s your permission slip. Go! Fulfill the dreams God has put in your heart! As we see in Matthew 19:26 TPT: “...what seems impossible to you is never impossible to God!” What He has put in your heart is never impossible with Him guiding you!

>>And, remember that God wants you to succeed!!

Your Heavenly Father wants you to experience the fulfillment of the dreams He has placed in your heart. Psalm 35:27 AMP says: “...Let the Lord be magnified, who delights and takes pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.” He gets pleasure when you prosper and succeed! Isn’t that a great picture of His heart towards you?

So, friends, I encourage you to do something TODAY that moves you closer to your dreams. You’re neither too young nor too old -- so go for it!

Say This: “Father, thank You that You’ve placed dreams in my heart and that through You all of those dreams are possible! Thank You that You delight when I prosper, and Lord I ask You to help me succeed. Please teach me and guide me, so these dreams You’ve put in my heart can come to pass in my life. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”

IN A MILLION YEARS

Jennifer Cole

Friends, you are more important than you know. God knew what He was doing when He called you! Don’t get sidetracked. Follow His call. Your life has a purpose...and God’s plan for you includes bearing fruit that remains...for all eternity!

“You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain…” John 15:16 NKJV

So, keep going, don’t quit, stay strong...in a million years from now you and many others will be so glad you followed His call.

>>After all -- somebody, somewhere is depending on you to do what God has called you to do.

YOU are graced and equipped for the calling on your life -- YOU can do this! Through Christ, you are well-positioned and well able to carry out your divinely implanted purpose on this earth. You are making a difference! Eternity will tell stories of how your obedience to the Lord made an eternal difference in the lives of others.

Say This: “Father, thank You that You’ve put within me a divinely implanted purpose for my life. Help me to live out my calling, staying right in the center of Your will, and help me to invest my life into making an eternal difference. Thank You for grace, equipping, appointing and anointing. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”
