Life is a journey of uncertainties. That is a fact most of us already know.
When you wake up in the morning, do you expect the goodness of God in your life? Do you set the tone of the day for success, favor and blessing?
Children do, have you ever noticed that?
There was a time in my life that I had the volume turned down so I couldn’t hear what God was saying to me. I chose not to listen and I made mistakes. Big ones. Life changing ones.
God knew I would make those mistakes. He knows every single thing we will do in our lives. It is written. Our day of birth, our day of death and everything in between is already written. He also knew, that in order for me, to get where I am today, those mistakes needed to happen. Did I want them to happen? Of course not. Nobody wants to make regrettable mistakes in their life.
He knew. He knew that one day His name would be glorified through my life.
He knew that one day I would be given a gift.
His special child. Why would God give “me” one of his special children? I had the volume turned down and didn’t want to hear what He had to say. I couldn’t possibly be worthy of such an honor.
Our God is a God of forgiveness, grace and love.
In order to be ready for what was in store for me, to have a closer relationship with His son, Our Lord and Savior, I had to turn up the volume.
Once I turned up the volume, it all became clear.
I challenge you to turn up the volume, so you can hear what God has to say to you, so you can live your best life now.
Turn it up.
