“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen”. – Hebrews 11:1
When you are in Christ you are no more ordinary. You are in a different league right now. You have a new lease of life because you are connected to a true Source of life. That means if there was anything God did for Abraham, Sarah, Esther or Ruth; you can lay claim on it. He would also do the same for you – because you are connected by faith!
The fact that you are an orphan does not mean you should suffer, Esther did not. She entered into prominence instead. Perhaps you are old now and you are trying to rule yourself out on that ground. No, you don’t! Abraham started his journey to greatness at age 75! Maybe someone else might want to say ‘I’m a teenager, perhaps my own journey is still far!’ No, David started at the age of 16! Someone may also want to say ‘I’m a female; you know we are in a male-dominated world!’ Not at all. There are a lot of women in this league that turned out great.
Therefore, there is nothing that should hold you back. You can become anything you so desire if you can connect to the Source that made the greats by faith.
The day you start looking back, doubting your new identity and placement; you start looking like the former tree. The reason for grafting in the first place is because a problem was discovered with the former tree necessitating a transfer from the former to the new. So, start thinking like the new – not like the old. Renew your mind with the Word of God.
Daily digest: You cannot put new in old wineskin!
Prayer: I pray for your strength today. Help me to find hope daily in your word. Amen
