I love Peter's experience of walking on the roaring sea with Jesus. But the thing is, Peter's story is often misunderstood. Do you have a step you need to take?
Listen to this message I gave at a women's retreat to gain the fresh perspective you need to see Jesus in a new way! My FREE gift to you!
I believe we have a silent epidemic going on worldwide that is claiming the fullness of life from most everyone alive. It does not cause death of the flesh, but ends hope, crushes dreams and pushes us to settle for being “average.”
It’s the plague of being un-noticed. It’s the silent hunger for worth and value by anyone that can see something in us worth treasuring.
But never fear! There is a cure! A reality that everyone on this planet has been uniquely wired by God for an amazing purpose. The reality that you and I, if we were honest, have unfulfilled dreams tucked away in the far corners of our heart, wishing for a someday to form roots and grow fruit. The reality that our current place in this world leaves us dry, tired and completely meaningless.
What if someone, anyone noticed your God-given inner-wiring?
What if a “crazy little monkey” interrupted your escape from “taking your place” in this very life that God created you to live? (Tribute to The Lion King)
Can I be that Rapheeki voice you may need to hear tonight friend?
Come closer and let me remind you, dear child, that you too have a Father and He is very much alive. Your dreams are not meant to stay in your imagination for He placed a passion in your heart for a reason.[tweetthis]You are His dream turned into reality.[/tweetthis]. Don’t waste your gift dear friend. I give you permission to look deeper, search harder into those guarded dreams of your heart and find your Abba writing His story through you. I give you permission to chase after your dreams.
As many of you know, I love inserting my name into His promises. Feel free to replace my name with yours tonight friends –
For I know the plans I have for you Bethany,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope…Bethany, if you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me. (Jeremiah 29:11, 13 NLT)
You have been noticed. Now, go notice Him at work in you.
