Have you ever cried out to God for more? Or wondered what His response might be as you asked for more? Maybe you are walking in your calling but still find yourself wondering, should I be doing more with my life?

The truth is, God sees more in you than you could ever see in yourself. The ‘more’ I am talking about does not come from more stuff, more money or more self-fulfillment—it ever only comes through a journey of discovering more of God and His unique plans and purposes for your life. Your potential is immense, and without a doubt more of God’s grace, goodness, mercy, kindness, and favor await you in the future.

One of my favorite scriptures is Ephesians 3:20-21 (MSG) which says,

 “God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us.

Glory to God in the church!
Glory to God in the Messiah, in Jesus!
Glory down all the generations!
Glory through all millennia! Oh, yes!”

God can do anything; not just a little bit more than you’ve asked for or dreamed of—far more! God desires to see all of us experience this Ephesians 3 life; a life overflowing with every good, wonderful, and perfect gift from Him.

The more God wants for your life is beyond comprehension and is not limited to space and time, nor can it be measured with earthly devices or human minds.  If you have felt your potential is limited because of past experiences, be encouraged that God can take every limitation that has been put on your life—by yourself or by others—and expand your heart and purpose in a way that is way bigger, way higher and way more effective than anything you could imagine. The new, exciting, and promised future of God is not behind you, rather it is most certainly ahead. To God, all things are possible; therefore, with Him nothing is impossible.  In your weakness, He is strong. In times of uncertainty, He remains faithful. Amidst a setback, He is working all things together for your good.

Whether you are satisfied in your current season or perhaps you are in the depths great challenge and difficulty—do not give up on your God-given dreams. He is with you every step of the way, and there is no end to His goodness. Pray daring prayers, be bold in your pursuit of God’s promises. Let’s resolve to live with intention, free from distraction and aware of the abundant potential there is in Christ.

My prayer is for you to know that His love and grace are unending and are ever waiting for you in your future. May His hand be upon you and His goodness shine through you. Your future is bright.
