Rhapsody of Realities TeeVo Devotional 11th August – Your Next Big Thing

(Be Challenged By New Ideas and Possibilities)

TO THE BIBLE: Philippians 3:13-14 TLB
“…I am still not all I should be, but I am bringing all my energies to bear on this one thing: forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I strain to reach the end of the race and receive the prize for which God is calling us up to heaven because of what Christ Jesus did for us.”

Did you know that there are many young people mentally idling away on rocking chairs? They’ve become so accustomed to the status quo that they don’t see something better; new ideas and possibilities don’t challenge them.

Don’t be that way! You’ve got to keep making progress. The Bible tells us about the man Isaac, that he “…began to prosper, and continued prospering until he became very prosperous” (Genesis 26:13), meaning he kept making progress! This is God’s desire for all his children—a life of unending progress and success.

God expects you to be increasingly fruitful and productive in all your endeavours; it’s your heritage if you’re born again (Proverbs 4:18). Whatever the level you’re at currently, whether in your ministry as a Christian, or your academics or finances, think about how much more progress you can make.

Irrespective of the level of influence or success you might have now, always think of the next big thing. Beyond your present achievements, what more can you do for God? How much more value can you add to your life? Don’t rest on your oars; dare for more!

Develop a desire to grow beyond your current level, and God will open your eyes to see potentials and possibilities. This doesn’t mean you should nurse inordinate ambitions; no! But be inspired by the dream of the more outstanding successes and glories that lie ahead.

Refuse to have small dreams. For some people, the moment they achieve a particular dream, they go to sleep in their minds, thinking they’ve arrived. Don’t be that way; make progress consistently. Always think of progress and advancement all the time.
