Friend, I want you to wake up every morning and ask yourself this question: What if? What if this thing could happen in my life? What if that was possible? What if God healed this? I believe that as you begin to live from a place of imagining and envisioning the incredible things that God can do, great things will happen in your life! This is why I encourage you to fall in love with the “What if?” motif.
Remember, even if you don’t get the result you’re looking for at the exact time you want it, God is sovereign and anything is possible! The only downside to becoming a possibility thinker and understanding that Jesus can bend the rules if He wants to is denial, or believing the Lord for something miraculous when He needs you take the long road. For example, I had a friend who grew up in a lower income household and his mom played the lottery a lot. One night, she heard her name coming through the TV, saying something like, “you can win too, Karen…” When that happened, she thought for sure that the Holy Spirit was speaking to her and telling her to go and buy lottery tickets, so she did…she bought a bunch, but she didn’t win. This woman was certain that she was meant to get rich quick, but her success wouldn’t come that easily. Instead, it was ultimately realized through hard work, as she studied to become a real estate agent and then started her own business.
You see, just because God can always do things for us in a miraculous way doesn’t mean that He always will. He loves to exceed our expectations, but sometimes there is a cost involved. A longer journey to the dream makes its fulfillment all the sweeter. As you fall in love with possibility, count the cost and know that living from the place of “What if?” means that you will be on a constant quest with Jesus. The road may be longer than you want it to, but as long as He is leading, you can enjoy each day and rest in the assurance that the end will be good!
