Sunday Scripture: Greater

It’s one of the most quoted scriptures in the Bible….you see it on Christian coffee mugs and teeshirts, constant motivation that God is with us as we strive toward our hopes and dreams.  I’m certainly not a Biblical scholar, but even I know {after reading the whole verse}, that John was actually referring to false prophets….people who claim that Jesus and the Bible are not enough.  But even though consumerism kinda picks and chooses catchy verses to print, I still see some similarities between the two interpretations.  Because when you are following your dreams, there are bound to be obstacles.  And I know for me, most of those obstacles are in my head.  I’ll tell myself I’m not good enough, I’m not cut out for this, it’s not “my time.”  But after reading this verse, maybe John is warning against the critics in my brain.

Sunday Scripture: Greater.....when you listen to the critics

Because, as they say, “I can do all things in Christ.”  So why do I doubt myself?  Or, why do I doubt my worth?  Or, why do I doubt God…who ultimately loves me and wants me to succeed.  So, I keep my eye on the prize, knowing that He is cheering for me the whole way.

Have a blessed week!
