Life is full of people who hope for things to happen, those who expect things to happen, those who want things to happen and those who make things happen. The difference between the first three and the fourth category is the last category are intent on ensuring that they don’t just hope and wish things to change. They make sure that their sleeves are folded if that’s what needs to happen for positive change to occur.
There is a place for hoping and expecting things to happen but we need to go a step further and employ the principle of intentionality as we do life to take our life experience to a whole new level. Is it in your spiritual life, be intentional. Is it in your career life, be intentional. Is it in your family life, be intentional in what you do. Is it in your finances be intentional. Seek out ways to get better in all spheres of your life and you will surely go higher. Don’t settle for less than what God has called you to live up to.
SCRIPTURE READING: 1 Corinthians 9:24-26 Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air:
DEVOTION PRAYER: Father God thank you for the wisdom and grace that you release in the various areas of my life as I intentionally engage in ways you reveal to bring about growth in my life in Jesus Name, Amen.
