There are a lot of great things you could accomplish for God in the land of the living. However, there is a chance you feel you are not rich enough or powerful enough to make a difference. So, here is a reminder that having faith is the key thing. When you live right, you will grow in grace. By your faith, and through the grace of God, there is nothing you cannot accomplish. A vision is God’s redemptive plan for a group of people. It will require more than your personal resources to execute. The only way to increase your chances of success is to have faith that you will be able to attract everything you need to get the job done.
When you step up and take responsibility to steer the world towards where God wants. God responds by granting you the might to get the job done. As it is written, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble”. A commitment to the greater, selfless good, done in the spirit of service will attract to you the resources required. On the other hand, the person that operates without a regard for God will be opposed by God. You can have faith that if you live right, you will receive the might you need. Your faith in God can, and will generate everything you need.
You start with what you have, and where you are right now. You are able to move with full confidence because as long as you are in alignment with what God wants, your trajectory is upwards. The mission is to be a salt and light of your world by taking a long, thoughtful look at the state of your world. Then, you can prayerfully consider which direction things need to go. This is not a conversation about the resources you have or lack. The initial conversation should center around what needs to be done, and why it needs to be done. As you pray, think, and make plans, you receive the grace to do even more.
