God Works Best With Moving Targets

Now someone may argue, “Some people have faith; others have good deeds.” But I say, “How can you show me your faith if you don’t have good deeds? I will show you my faith by my good deeds.” James 2:18 (NLT)

The easiest way to ensure you will not miss your destiny is to keep moving forward.

God wants you to dream big, but He also wants you to take action. If your dream is to start your own business, take a management course. If you want to be a songwriter, turn off the television and pick up a pen. When you move towards your goal, God can place the right people and opportunities in your path to help make your dreams come true.

Sadly, many people give up on their dreams. They get stuck in a rut and lower their expectations, convincing themselves that they do not want anything more.

This is not God’s will for your life.

God has planned an amazing destiny for you and He will help you and guide you along the way if you will choose it. He may not hand you a road map, but He has provided you with talents, skills and natural abilities that can help to point you in the right direction.

Put some thought and prayer into it and then take action, with wisdom. Never get stuck waiting for the ideal conditions or an obvious sign to come from God for you to get moving. He will lead you as you go.

You do not have to merely wish for a life of adventure. Go out and find it with God.
