God Has So Much More For You ~ Sunday Devotional

But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him. 1 Corinthians 2:9 (NKJV)

Are you enjoying all that God has for you? Do you even realize what’s possible?

I can only imagine what Heaven will be like and the life God has planned for us there. But what about now? Here on Earth? God created you on purpose. He has a plan for you. No matter how old you are or what stage you’re at, He has things prepared for you yet to do. Are you living it? Are you allowing Him free reign to do what He pleases in you and through you?

It wasn’t until I broke free of distractions that I started realizing God intended so much more for me. I couldn’t realize all those things until I chose to surrender. 

For the longest time, I was consumed with insecurities and focused on losing weight to feel better – in my body and as a person. Once the scale hit that arbitrary magic number then, and only then, would I focus on other things in life. But as you know, that number is fleeting. It’s always changing. And if you reach that number, then you might as well go for something lower, right? 

I was so misguided. 

The life God had for me was not determined by a number on a scale. He never said that His love for me was based on my weight. My weight was not criteria for how He would bless me or use me. I was the one putting limits on God. The only thing that mattered to me was losing weight. Once that happened (or so I thought!), then I could open myself to more in my life. I put God on hold while I struggled with this issue, this burden, that He never asked me to carry. 

Don’t miss out like I was missing out.  

God has a plan for you. He had it before you were even born. It’s prepared. It’s laid out…all the way to Heaven. All He asks is that you love Him and receive the love He has for you. Stop toiling with futile things. Surrender the burden to God and start living with expectation. Get excited about the life He has for you. No matter your age or season of life, God has something grand planned. Get ready. It’s better than you could imagine. 

Happy Sunday!
