Thought for the Day by Simon James-Morse (Minister of Goldstone Church)
Stretch It Out
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. (Ephesians 3:20-21)
The older I am getting the more I am realising the importance of stretching. When we fail to stretch, our muscles begin to lose their ability to expand and contract, which can significantly reduce our body’s range of motion.
But it is not just our bodies that need to be stretched to stay healthy. Our faith in Jesus also needs to be stretched; our spiritual minds need to be stretched; our hearts need to be stretched. Because, when we fail to stretch in these vital areas of our lives, we will stop growing and eventually develop a type of atrophy – of being ineffective and weak in our Christian lives.
As we cautiously come out of lockdown and look to the future, let us be challenged to look forward with God-inspired faith. Let us believe God wholeheartedly for a better future, for broader horizons, and greater victories in Jesus’ name. Let us ask God to stretch our thinking, knowing that He is able to do much more than we can even imagine.
Dear Lord, fill my heart to overflowing with Your love today. Help me to focus wholeheartedly on You as I boldly step out with You in faith. Amen
