In the journey of faith, we often find ourselves at a crossroads where we must make important life decisions. These decisions can range from career choices to relationships and even personal growth. One thing that all Christians should remember is that settling for less is not the path God intends for us. In fact, He has just opened the door of prosperity and ascension for His children, and it's our duty to walk through it with confidence, faith, and unwavering trust in His divine plan.
Welcome to the Hebrew year 5784, the year of the open door. (Watch the video here)
God's Promise of Prosperity
Throughout the Bible, God makes it clear that He desires prosperity for His people. This prosperity is not merely limited to material wealth, but it encompasses spiritual, emotional, and relational blessings as well. When we look at verses like Jeremiah 29:11, we find a promise that resonates deeply with the idea of prosperity: "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope."
God's desire for us is not just to get by in life but to thrive and experience His goodness in abundance. When we settle for less than what God has promised, we limit His ability to work in our lives.
Ascension refers to the act of rising to a higher level or position. As Christians, we are called to ascend, grow, and become more Christ-like in our character. This ascension process is a lifelong journey where we strive to align our lives with God's purpose and will. Philippians 3:14 encourages us with these words: "I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus."
To settle for less than God's intended ascension is to deny ourselves the opportunity to become all He has designed us to be. It's to forfeit the abundant life that Jesus promised in John 10:10: "I came that they may have life and have it abundantly."
Overcoming the Fear of Failure
One reason people settle for less is the fear of failure. It's natural to feel apprehensive about stepping out of our comfort zones and pursuing God's calling in our lives. However, we must remember that God does not call us to succeed in our own strength but to trust Him and follow His guidance. Proverbs 3:5-6 reminds us, "Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths."
When we trust in God's promises and His faithfulness, we can overcome the fear of failure and step boldly into the prosperity and ascension He has prepared for us.
Ultimately, we are called to a life of purpose, abundance, and ascension. We must not settle for less than what God has promised us in His Word. It's time to embrace the open door of prosperity and ascension that God has set before us with confidence and faith.
Let us trust in His plans for our lives, knowing that He desires our welfare and has a future filled with hope for each one of us. Don't settle for less; pursue God's best and experience the abundant life He has prepared for you.
