Surprises Are Coming! Are Your Ready?Are you the kind of person who likes surprises? Are you the type of person who thinks no one can surprise them because you always seem to find out before your friend or family can achieve the surprise? Well, guess what? Whether you think you can out-smart the surprise giver or not, God is on the move to surprise you with what He has planned for you this year!
Last week we talked about this being our BANNER year and what that means. But even beyond what we can hope, think or even conceive in our own minds, God wants to do MORE than that for us, and I believe this year is going to be a year of unprecedented favor, blessings and surprises than we have so far. It is going to be a year filled with better for us and our families! Greater possibilities, greater opportunities, and greater surprises from the Lord.
Job 5:10 in The Message says:
"If I were in your shoes, I'd go straight to God, I'd throw myself on the mercy of God. After all, He's famous for great and unexpected acts; there's no end to his surprises!"
I think sometimes we're a bit unsure of the extent of what God has for us, so we limit Him by our words. We say things like, "Well, that would be amazing, but God wouldn't do it for me." With that phrase, we've just limited God to what we will allow Him to do in our lives. Let's replace phrases that limit Him with phrases that give Him "free reign" to do what He wants in our lives.
