The Best is Yet to Come

It is more important to go slow and gain the lessons you need along the journey than to rush the process and arrive at your destination empty.

—Germany Kent

In my house, just above the entrance to the hallway, hangs a sign that says: The best is yet to come“!  Sometimes I glance up at that sign and say those words out loud to remind myself that this is what I believe—the best is yet to come! Now I speak those words from an already blessed position (having already received so many good things), but God is not done with me… you…us yet! There are still dreams to be fulfilled; plans to unfold; places to step into; people to meet; harvests to reap—you get the picture. Yes, there is more! In God there is always more!

God is not a mediocre God so don’t limit what you can receive and achieve because of mediocre expectations! 

Definition of “Mediocre”

Ordinary, average, passable, just adequate, uninspired, undistinguished, unexceptional, unexciting, unremarkable.

It takes courage to hope against hope in the face of mediocre circumstances. It takes faith to believe what is not yet seen (Hebrews 11:1), when what is seen leaves us unsatisfied.

With God, you are stronger than your struggles and more fierce than your fears. God provides comfort and strength to those who trust in Him. Be encouraged, keep standing, and know that everything’s going to be alright.

You have been called to hope with courage and believe! This is how Jesus operated in His humanity—and it’s how we live! Don’t think it strange that you are challenged in life—it’s so you can overcome! You are born of God for victory—not for mediocrity! (1 John 5:4)

Don’t be tricked into mediocre thinking. Jesus came to raise people up out of every form of bondage through the power of His resurrection (Gal. 2:20). Thoughts of defeat, unworthiness, fear and intimidation don’t belong to you.

A thief has only one thing in mind—he wants to steal, slaughter, and destroy. But I [Jesus] have come to give you everything in abundance, more than you expect—life in its fullness until you overflow!

John 10:10 (TPT)

The discovery of purpose begins with discovering the thoughts of God towards you.

God is masterful at taking the ordinary and turning it into the extraordinary! He can turn the average into the unusual! He inspires the uninspired! He takes the undistinguished and makes them stand out! He turns the unexceptional into the exceptional and those things that seem unremarkable can be transformed into that which is noteworthy! 

You do not serve a mediocre God and He does not see you as a mediocre person!
You are called to prosper in life (3 John 1:2)! In whatever station, calling or place, God’s desire is for you to succeed—to be an exceptional mother; a successful business man or woman; a remarkable teacher; an inspired writer… 

Bible definition of “Prosper”

To grant a prosperous and expeditious journey; to lead by a direct and easy way; to grant a successful issue; to cause to prosper; to succeed
(Strong’s Greek 2137)

Trust in the goodness of God towards you… in His redemptive power… in His forgiving disposition… in His loving nature! Cultivate an expectation of His very best for you every day! Put a faith “tug” on God’s Throne of Grace for the abundant supply available to you! (Hebrews 4:16)

You are exceptional, and God loves you with an exceptional love! Mediocrity is not your destiny. Believe for His best today, and trust for His best tomorrow.

Two things I love to do—to write about, and to teach God's amazing Word—thus the name of this blog site: Wired for Word. For many years I have been actively involved in a number of church ministries: Women's Ministry, Helps Ministry, Bible teaching and pastoral care. My heart is to touch lives with God's Word—to express from heaven, words that are divinely purposed for you in your now season—words that have the power to heal, to unlock, to inspire, to encourage... and instruct. I pray they will be anointed words for an appointed time in your life. I truly hope that Wired for Word will become a part of your life—even if only for a season!
