Settle For the Best

When you feel like settling for less than the best, think about what God wants for you.

There will come a day when you realize that God wants more for you than you could possibly want for yourself. Maybe you’ve come to that day already, but if not, here’s what will happen. As you focus on God daily by reading His Word and talking with Him through prayer, you are going to gain a greater appreciation for Who God is and what His will is for you each day. You will recall what God has done in every detail of your life as you eagerly learn how God wants to build your character and use you to impact the lives of others.

At that point you will realize that God doesn’t just want you to “get by” each day. He wants you to live your life fully here on Earth while you anticipate the amazing life waiting for you in heaven.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”

Jeremiah 29:11
