Father God, thank You for the people You put in my life to push me. Amen
"With your help I can advance against a troop; with my God I can scale a wall.” Isaiah 41:10
We push each other get better. We could never be as good alone as we are together." Back when I was just starting out as an adult, I had big dreams for my future. I wanted to be a psychologist. I wanted to be a writer. I wanted to be so many things just like so many of our young people today who have dreams of "down the road." I look back and think about some of those dreams. Some fell by the wayside. Others I actually was able to see come to life. The question is how? What made the difference? Well, I can remember my English teacher Mrs. Thomas who constantly encouraged me to write. She told me that “One day if you apply yourself, you will be a greater writer.” I halfway believed her but that was enough push to propel me forward and years later I realize that writing is the gift God put in me that she could see. Not only Mrs. Thomas but some years later, a college professor said pretty much the same words. We have to encourage our young people to dream big and not just dream but follow through. It does not matter whether they are related to you or not, encourage them. The Psalmist in 18:25-36 said, “With your help I can advance against a troop; with my God I can scale a wall.” God is my push but here is the deal. He put people here who will also push me. Someone you know may have a dream in them that just needs someone to come along and encourage them to JUMP. You could be that someone. You could be their PUSH. Let’s not be so caught up in self that we are not available for God to use us to PUSH others into their destiny.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.." John 3:16
