THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: ARE YOU GOING TO SETTLE TO BE A PRODUCT OF YOUR ENVIRONMENT OR DO YOU WANT YOUR ENVIRONMENT TO BE A PRODUCT OF YOU? It is true that there are some things we can’t change as far as circumstances but I think there is far more we can affect and change, we just don’t realize it. [Luke 17:6] “So the Lord said, “If you have faith as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be pulled up by the roots and be planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you.” On another occasion He said: “…if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.” [Matthew 17:20b] His point is very clear BY FAITH WE CAN HAVE MAJOR IMPACT IN OUR CIRCUMSTANCES. We often make the mistake of thinking…”Well, it’s just the way things are…”…and we accept something that is not of God in our lives. We claim to be a product of our environment so we therefore have to adjust…again, some things can’t change, but more can than we think! A broken down marriage, backslidden children, financial setback, sickness or disease. There are all kinds of things we can impact by faith in prayer claiming the promises of God for our situation. So, the question remains; ARE YOU GOING TO SETTLE TO BE A PRODUCT OF YOUR ENVIRONMENT OR DO YOU WANT YOUR ENVIRONMENT TO BE A PRODUCT OF YOU? Start praying, claiming, commanding God’s word into your situation and watch what God does. Have expectation, just like Jesus is suggesting that YOUR FAITH CAN MOVE MOUNTAINS…SO START MOVING THEM!
