I woke up weary today with the prospect of getting ready for work and helping our son get ready for school. But then I paused: “Is weariness what God has for me today?” The answer is no. He has planned for me to advance today. Advance what, you may be asking? Advance the kingdom.
Hold on. Don’t check out yet, hear what advancing the kingdom is.
Advancing the kingdom means moving forward with whatever you already have. If your thoughts immediately go to: “I don’t have any anything”, how many people did the boy’s five small barley loaves and two small fish feed? A lot. (I’m not going to tell you. :) Go look it up. (John 6:1-12))
Any small portion of anything that you have can be multiplied, if you have eyes see and a heart to partner with God.
Creativity is the portion that God has been highlighting in my life right now. My creativity spans many areas including creating ebooks for our web development business, writing blog content, designing downloadable art and writing prophetic poetry. I can now say that my creativity is valuable. It is necessary. The world needs it. God loves it and He wants to multiply it.
And so today, I say I will ADVANCE with the portion God has given to me. My next step is publish my Whispers of God CD.
What is your portion that God is highlighting now?
What is your next step?
