11/22/16 In a Different Realm
“I choose to do astonishing things through you. It is My plan to use you in a way that gives real meaning to your life. You have a hope that is more powerful than many of those who appear successful in your eyes. They feel they don’t need Me, because they can look as if they prosper in their own strength.
"But you, you are Mine. I will show you how to prosper in My strength and power. You will be functioning in My spiritual strength while walking with Me to accomplish My kind of prosperity. They have no knowledge of that kind of wealth. You be encouraged. I see your need. I am faithful. I will never leave you. If you choose to walk closely with Me, once again I say, I choose to do astonishing things through you and with you.”
John 14:12 NIV
“I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these because I am going to the Father.”
Hebrews 13:5b AMP
…for He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you)! [Assuredly not!]
Our relationship with God moves us into much different realms than those of the world. His values are far higher than even the most renowned scholar. His concepts of wealth make no sense to the world. Everything God does has eternal benefits and consequences, whereas worldly investments all pass away.
Seeking after anything of the world is a dead-end venture. Pursuing the things of God is a pursuit that leads to a life that has real significance. Astounding things happen when we sell out to our Lord and His ways.
Teach me to value what You value, Lord,
