I always struggled with not feeling smart enough, good enough…enough to achieve the things that burned within my heart. But over time, I realized that I don’t have to be extraordinary to change the world. I just have to make extraordinary choices in the moment of decision.
I recently spoke at a youth program at a local church on the topic of “Going to the Next Level!” In life, we must understand that some “nexts” are guaranteed and some are conditional. The guaranteed ones are a product of time and beyond our control... like next week and next year. These things will occur with or without our approval.
However, there is a “next” in life that is completely dependent on how we respond to the “NOW” in life. The Word is clear that promotion doesn’t come because we want it…it comes when we are ready!
So how do we best prepare and position ourselves to align our actions with God’s purposed promotion for our lives?
There are eight choices that we must make in order to experience promotion. These are choices that present themselves to everyone. From Abraham to Jesus to you… your choices in these areas will make the difference between growth and freedom or staying “stuck!”
