And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.
II Corinthians 12:9-10
God’s invitation for you and I to grow in His purposes is indicative of God’s willingness to invite you and I to Co-Create with Him His promise of life and life more abundantly for our lives. God knew and knows that we have exactly what it takes to build out our well-lived and joy filled life for He created us and deposited in us everything necessary. However, we must be willing to take the risk, have faith in what God has given unto us and mature, grow in it. Thus, the challenges of our lives are specifically designed for us to mature, grow in the fullness of who we are as collaborators, Co-Creators with God. God’s favor, grace on our lives is more than enough for us to step out of the boats of our experiences and walk on water, live in His promises. As we approach and engage the circumstances of our lives do so with the confidence, the faith that whatever it is we are well able with God to overcome and inherit the promises of God. Go ahead and Occupy Your Promise, the circumstances of your life are only building blocks for the revelation of God and His power in and through you and your life.
