A river begins as a small stream, but can become very large
and powerful over time. So it is with you!


THE WORD:  “For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”  Jeremiah 29:11 LB


THE POINT: So what’s the plan? You were built for greatness. After all, the great and mighty God is the one who created you. The Source of greatness is found in God alone.

Great expectations come from a great God. The Lord God Almighty says that He has great expectations for you. When God is your source, greatness is your destiny. God has great things in store for you. God wants the best for you.

God can make you the best that you can be through Jesus Christ. When Christ comes to indwell you, you get the ultimate makeover. God will change you from the inside out. Then, Christ will become your very life.


THE APPLICATION:  Do you want to realize your true potential? Stop just dreaming of greatness and start living your dream! Give yourself completely to the Lord Jesus Christ. Discover for yourself the difference that Christ can make in your life.

When you give yourself to God, He will make you a new creation in Christ. Then, you will become the best that you can be. God will make you complete in union with Christ (Colossians 2:10). You can’t improve on God!

God creates you anew in Christ, and as with all of His creation, God declares you very good! Now there is nothing left for you to do but live it. Your destiny doesn’t have to be merely a future hope. It can become a present reality!

Are you living your destiny? You can if you allow Christ to live His life through you. Christ will make your destiny a reality! However, you must stick with The Plan—God’s plan. As you do, you will have a bright future and an enduring hope! Now that’s the goodness of God, and it’s good for you!


THE PRAYER:  “Dear Lord, Thank You for loving me enough to include me in Your plans. You do not intend to harm me, but to prosper me. I realize that Your plans for me are always the best. So I give up on my plans and I give myself to You. I trust you to accomplish Your perfect plans through me. My hope is in You, Lord. Therefore, I look forward to the bright future You have prepared for me.”
