Think and Go Far

I once heard a story about a tourist that stopped his car on a country road and asked a young boy “How far is it to Smithville?” “Well,” said the boy, “The way you are going, it’s about 24,996 miles, but if you turn around, it’s about four.” It’s important to put some thought into the direction you are going. This poem hopefully inspires your thoughts as you seek to go far with God today.

Step Ahead

Think about the direction
You would like to go
Even though many
Choose to forgo.

Without hesitation,
Seek suggestions
For your progression
In the right direction.

Leading to a place
You can rejoice
Because you thought
And made a choice

Your mind is capable
To think with the smartest;
To reason with the best
And go the farthest.

You can visualize,
You can imagine,
You can plan,
And take action.

Called According to His Purpose

We know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. – Romans 8:28 

A key point brought out in the study of Romans 8:26-30 and written about in the post “Let the Spirit Work in Your Life” is that the Spirit gives insight into how to play your part in a preferred future and gives plans to make a difference in society.

First, pray for God’s will. One song to inspire is Thy Will  by Hillary Scott & The Scott Family. Second, discover the purpose for which God has for you. Then respond with enthusiasm to fulfill that high purpose.

Let the Spirit Work in Your Life

Not only does the Spirit keep us looking forward to becoming liberated from bondage and set free as God’s children but as explained in Romans 8:26-30, the Spirit works in our current life. The Spirit helps us to pray and discover our purpose for which God has for us.

This day with God, respond with enthusiasm to fulfill that high purpose. The day will be amazing because the Spirit gives insight into how to play our part in a preferred future and gives plans to make a difference in society.
