If you could be one thing with your life, would you rather be a small pebble making ripples in a pond, or a meteor crashing into the ocean?
You see, the thing is, we have a choice as to which one our lives will end up being.
There are two ways we can choose to live our lives. The first is trivial. The second breaks history.
A lot of us become close-minded and content with getting by in life. But in this case we don’t realize that God has called us to be so much more. We are capable of anything with his power.
“For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love, and self-discipline” (2 Timothy 1:7).
God is the force behind the meteor showers, and when he is the force behind you, you will have meteoric effects.
“Yet those who wait for the LORD Will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary.” -Isaiah 40:31
When I committed to Jesus, my life-purpose shifted. My passion for life became as powerful as a meteor. I have always struggled with finding my purpose, but recently, it has become quite clear: my purpose is to live a life full-forced and passionate about shaking the earth in the name of Jesus. I do not know what it looks like specifically, but God has planted some big dreams in my heart. All I know is that I can choose to uproot the ocean with God’s power–and I am going to live so that every breath contributes to this cause.
Jesus was the ultimate figure of a meteor shaking the earth. And we are called to be as radical as Him.
“Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did.” – 1 John 2:6
But the Lord said, “Do not say, ‘I am only a child.’ You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you.” – Jeremiah 1:6
A meteor crashes toward earth with the force equivalent to 13,000 tons of TNT exploding instantaneously. It shakes the earth and rattles the hemisphere. A pebble ripples in the pond. Which one will you choose to be?
Do not tell yourself that you were made to be a pebble. Even if a pebble went full force doing what it was supposed to do, it would have meteoric effects.
“Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn’t do it, sins.” -James 4:17
When we give our life to God, He is the force behind us. Nothing can be against us. And with faith the size of a mustard seed we can move mountains.
So, what is stopping us?
