Quit lying to yourself about what you truly want. In your heart you want one thing, but in reality, you settle for less because the situation doesn’t look like you hoped, or you think you better hop on this chance because it may be the only opportunity you get. That’s selling yourself short. Jesus said to the blind men after asking them if they believed He could give them their sight, and them declaring, yes! He said, “Let it be done for you according to your faith!” (See Matthew 9:28-29) You see, God wants us to do two things when we are believing him for something that is not within our power, He wants us to believe in HIS power and He wants us to open our mouth and declare that belief! It’s not enough to think happy thoughts, we have to break down those walls of defeat by declaring God’s Word over our lives. David said in Psalm 84:11, “No good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless.” When you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior and allow His Spirit to live in you, you become blameless by His blood! It doesn’t mean you don’t make mistakes, it means you’re free from being a prisoner to sin and the end result of it! So don’t think you’ve missed your opportunity for that dream in your heart to manifest. Your sins haven’t caused you to miss your chance. God is still able. He’s been in the business of turning people who were considered nobodies, into somebodies, since forever! He really knows how to pick em! Ask me how I know? I know because I’m all screwed up, but His grace is sufficient!

So yeah, don’t lie to yourself about what you truly want. If God put a dream in your heart, He intends on fulfilling it! Do what you can and He will do what you can’t, but don’t give up on better, because mediocrity is easier to obtain. When God has called you to be great, you’re not comfortable with settling for less. It just doesn’t sit right in your spirit, and if you do settle, you’re not happy about it. Don’t allow what was supposed to be a season of learning become a lifetime of pain. Believe bigger, declare your faith out loud in words and in action! Don’t allow anyone or anything to tell you that what you’re believing God for is impossible! It may be humanly impossible but nothing is impossible with God! I know you’ve heard the saying, “It will do.” Which means, it’s not what I wanted, but it’s good enough. Don’t be an “It will do” person. This is how a person like this thinks, “I’m believing God for a husband that won’t cheat.” Meanwhile in the meantime they settle for “Jody” who they know is a player because… “It will do,” or should I say “He will do,” for the time being. There are all kinds of scenarios I could have listed, but the point is folks… Walk it like you talk it, because “It will do,” will never do.
