Don’t Settle for less when God has so much more in store for you. Many times we have not felt worthy of God’s blessing, we have felt less than because of what we’ve done in the past or where we come from and we have chosen to settle for less than because we thought we were not good enough.
Just because you made a mistake doesn’t disqualify you from receiving God’s best. God is full of so much grace and love for you that’s why He died on the cross so that you didn’t have to carry the burden of your past and your failures anymore. You are cleansed by the power of His blood so that you could be more like Him. You are forgiven, redeemed and deserving of God’s blessings.
Many times you have let things attach themselves to your life and they have become comfortable for you. Some of those habits you have come to enjoy and some of those relationships you thought you found security in but weren’t really profitable. Often we we settle for less because we haven’t met the best, when you get the best it gives you the power to let go of the rest.
Right now you may feel at a crossroad, you’re feeling like you had enough tragedy, you’ve had enough pain, you’ve had enough misery, and you want to see light at the end of the tunnel. But you feel hopeless because of everything that’s happened to you and you’ve settled for less instead of waiting for God’s best that He has in store for you but don’t you worry because God is doing something good in you that no man has seen. There is greatness in you.
God has kept you alive through the years of great infirmity, tragedy, trials and tribulations because He had something greater for you than anything you have experienced in your life. May be you want to be like Esther and all the great people in the Bible that received God’s best. May be you want what your friends have and your tired and overwhelmed of looking at your friends and people around you having all the best things and you don’t and you’re asking God when is my turn?. And all these thoughts of comparison have caused you to panic and you’ve ended up settling for less than because you are uncertain of the future. But just like Esther in the Bible I want to encourage you today and let you know that you have been called for such a time as this- (Esther 4:14).
Maybe you have been betrayed, perhaps all those you trusted have turned on you and broken your heart. Still God has sustained you. You didn’t make it because you were strong. You didn’t make it because you were smart. You didn’t make it because you were wise. You made it because God’s amazing grace kept you. He has more for you today than what you went through yesterday, so don’t give up, don’t give in, hold on your blessing is on the way.
God will never deny you because of your past, He will never scrutinize you because of your every action, He will take you as you are and give you rest, peace and love. He will provide for you and satisfy the yearning of your soul. So do not settle for less than no matter what comes your way because the best is yet to come says the lord.
