TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
I gave My life so you could not only have life instead of death, but an abundant life right now on earth. I have made you for more. Claim it. Go after it. It is already yours.
DROP THE SPOON
Do you know that your life is really a big deal and needs to be lived well? Truth is, God is trusting you to live the life He paid for you to live! There’s a big difference between an epic life and a nominal life.
Epic means heroic, majestic, impressively great. Nominal means very small. And what’s real is, it’s up to you if your walk with Jesus is epic or nominal.
“Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.” – Luke 6:38
Think about it. Living a nominal life is like going to the ocean that is God and taking a teaspoon. I want to take a bucket! Heck, I just want to swim in all the good things He has for me. He’s not a stingy God!
This verse says it’s up to YOU, not God, to determine how much of the kingdom you get into your life. The Bible says the promises of God are always “yes and amen.” God has already said, “Yes,” and your job is to say, “Amen.”
“Yes,” is what God says. “Amen” or “let it be established’” is our response to that. What does that mean? It means this: it is one thing for God to reveal to you His plan, it is another thing for you to conform your life to the image of His plan!
So, epic or nominal? It’s your choice. You can live the life of abundance Jesus wants for you, or scrape by always being disappointed in God and yourself for the struggle that your life has become. Drop the spoon and dive in!
