Equipped For Greatness

The Lord has great things in store for each of our lives, and in order to get to the destiny that He has for us, we have to be willing to go through the process.  In going through the process we must be willing to submit ourselves to the complete will of God even if we do not like or understand it.  There are going to be times on this journey that we will be wondering and even questioning where God is taking us, but our faith should be strong enough to keep us in those moments of uncertainty.  It is in going through the process that God is preparing us for what He has for us.

The Scripture reminds us that, may the God of peace who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great shepherd of the sheep, by the blood of the eternal covenant, equip you with everything good that you may do his will, working in us that which is pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.  I encourage you today to know that just as God brought Jesus back from the dead, He will also raise you up in the midst of your journey.  Remember that God is equipping you for great things that He will do in your life.

God is equipping you to do great things in His Kingdom and for His glory, and those things will be pleasing in His sight, and they will be a blessing to you.  As I go through the process of what God has for me, I am reminded that God is equipping me to be able to handle the place that He has for me, and it is in the equipping that I know that all things are going to work in my favor but more importantly for God’s glory.

Since I know that God is equipping me with everything good to do His will I am convinced, “It’s My Year To Get My Thing From My God!”


Lord keep preparing me for the destiny that you have for my life, and as I travel this road and go through the process strengthen me and keep me as only you can.  In Jesus Name Amen.
