How To Become Great

God has a certain wisdom that’s been stirring in your heart for a while…

Allow me to confirm that wisdom for you…

It’s NOT how much you have that makes you happy. And yet, so many people spend huge amounts of time and energy wishing they had more.

It’s NOT how much you get that satisfies. And yet, so many people spend huge amounts of time and energy wishing they could get more.

It’s NOT status and notoriety that fulfills. And yet, so many people spend huge amounts of time and energy wishing they were at a higher level and that more people’s attention was upon them.

It’s NOT having people look up to you with envy that brings joy. And yet, so many people spend huge amounts of time and energy wishing they were in a place of success that other people would envy.

And,  God’s wisdom stirring in your heart tells you plainly that all this “wishing” does you no good…and is in fact a block to you receiving your good.

So you ask: “What is it that does delight my soul?

And again, God’s wisdom in your heart reveals the answer…

It’s what you DO…that in some way makes the world a better place for certain people…and that in some way points those people to Jesus Christ.

You “know” all of this…because it’s God’s wisdom that’s stirring in your heart.

And in your desire to do good, you create much frustration for yourself that really is unnecessary.  Your carnal self rises up…overriding your spiritual self…

…and wants to do your good at a HUGE level…at a level where you have much…where you get much…where you have much status and notoriety…where people look at you with envy…

…and because you are at a level that seems to you to be rather humble and perhaps even meager…you feel very unhappy and frustrated.

But God, in His love and care for you…stirs again His wisdom in your heart…and reminds you…

All is well and all grows better.

Everything is right on time and right on pace with God’s perfect plan for YOUR life.

While it may be true that certain things don’t “feel” all that great right now…”faith” lets you know that God is creating and orchestrating great good RIGHT NOW out of your PRESENT circumstances and conditions.  Time will inevitably prove that your “faith” was the REAL truth.

God’s wisdom in your heart reminds you of Christ’s words in Matthew 25:  “thou hast been faithful over a FEW things,  I WILL MAKE THEE ruler over many things“.

And as you think about these words from Christ to you…you can realize that there’s nothing for you to be fretting about…there’s nothing to be worried about…there’s nothing to be upset or frustrated about.

All you have to do is this: DO whatever you can…right where you are at…with whatever resources you have…to make the world a better place for just one person…and while you are doing that, find some way point to point that person to Jesus Christ…and then do that again for another person…and another…

Soon enough, you WILL look around and find that GOD HAS MADE THEE a RULER over MANY THINGS!

Isn’t it a RELIEF to know that God will do the “heavy lifting” of “making” you great in His Kingdom?

And so, you can just relax now into this new year with complete peace in your heart, total faith and trust in God, and the full confidence to go DO your part.

As you do your part, God WILL do His part.

  1. thank you lane for he simple truth
    i agree whole heartedly that as we grow in truth that our faith also grows i keep thinking on the text that we are given as much as we can handle in any situation
    and am frustrated with my limited capacity
    so to have victory over self i must be happy where i am

  2. Lane,

    Thank you for sharing this powerful message from God’s heart and yours.

    It takes courage to live by faith and do the things we know that pleases Father God. So many times we get busy doing unproductive things instead of becoming, transforming and imparting his love. Love always succeeds – it never fails or tires or cease to exist. We can overcome by love, in Him.

  3. As usual, Lane, you are right on target with your inspiring message.

    We all need to be disciples of Christ, sharing his message through good and faithful service to mankind and treating earth with respect.

    It is all too easy to get caught in the feelings of; “have to”, “must do”, “gotta do”, and “gotta have”, rather than allowing God to direct our lives through our faith in Him to use us as He sees fit and to direct us as His plans for us permit. All in good time and in perfect ways, often beyond our own vision.
