TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
Those who come after you are looking for an inheritance. Leave them one with eternal influence. They are watching you, and they see your strength, your faith, and your right-standing with God. God will increase your legacy by connecting you with next-level people to move you into your upgrade.
YOUR BIG FINISH INTO FORWARD
You do know there is a big finish coming for you, right? See, the hope and future that God gives us is, in fact, an expected end.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you hope and a future.” – Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
Or the King James says it this way:
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” – Jeremiah 29:11
God wants you to expect and have great hope for where your life will end up. When you start thinking about that, you start thinking about the legacy you leave behind.
I hope legacy is as important to you as it is to me. I want to be remembered as a guy who put his whole heart on the line for people nobody else cared about. I want to be remembered as a guy who loved Jesus and fought hard to bring others to the Kingdom.
Likewise. I want my children, and their children to bear the family resemblance.
I hope people look at my kids and say, “They’re so generous, just like their daddy!” Or watch my grandkids and say, “Their grandfather used to help whoever needed it, no questions asked, no judgments made. They’re Jesus freaks just like him!”
I want my legacy to be about the reflection of my savior in my actions.
What about you? Are you expecting a big finish? Be encouraged because one is coming and it’s going to blow people away. Are you leaving a legacy? There’s no better time to start than now!
“Therefore know that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments…” – Deuteronomy 7:9
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO EMBRACE YOUR DESTINY. LEAVE A LEGACY OF GOODNESS AND GENEROSITY THAT NOT ONLY OUTLIVES YOU BUT YOUR GREAT-GREAT GRANDCHILDREN!
