Daily Devotional – 11/23/15 “God thought enough of you …”

God thought enough of you to change your life, why would you mess it up? God cared enough about you to change your name, why are you still answering to foolishness? God even thought enough about you to change your location, why are you still going back to where you used to be? If God thought you were worth saving, why don’t you? Oh, you listening to folk but baby, folk will tell you anything to see you fail. And if you would go by what everybody said about everything, you’d never go anywhere, try anything or amount too much. Look, folk will tell you they don’t like the food at that restaurant and you’ll take their word for it instead of trying it for yourself. Folk will tell you, he/she isn’t worth it and you go along with it instead of fighting for your marriage. Folk will say that church is full of mess, when the truth of the matter is; the messy one is the one you’re listening too. You’ve got to stop letting folk get into your ear because they taint your spirit. Yet God thought you were worth keeping, so He cleaned you up inside. What are you going to do about the outside?

You’ve got to get to a point where you start believing in what God knows you’re capable of. If God didn’t think you could do it, He wouldn’t have opened the door. If God didn’t think you were worthy, He wouldn’t have called your name. If God didn’t think you were worth saving, He would have let you die in your sins. If God didn’t think you were worth dying for, He wouldn’t have sent His only Son. If God didn’t think you could handle it, He wouldn’t have allowed sickness to invade your body. If God didn’t think you can pass the assignment, He wouldn’t have placed you there? Don’t you trust Him? Trust God more than you trust those old tires on your car that should have been replaced. Trust God more than the chair you’re sitting in. Trust God more than you do the pilot flying the plane. Trust God more than the cook who is preparing your food. Beloved, God believes in you but you’ve got to believe in Him too. If He didn’t think you were worthy of His anointing, He wouldn’t allow you to partake in it. God thought enough of you to trust you with His plan. What are you going to do with it?
