Say to him, ‘The Lord, the God of the Hebrews, sent me to you to say, “Let my people go, so that they may worship me in the wilderness.” But until now you have not listened.’ Thus says the Lord, “By this you shall know that I am the Lord.” See, with the staff that is in my hand I will strike the water that is in the Nile, and it shall be turned to blood. The fish in the river shall die, the river itself shall stink, and the Egyptians shall be unable to drink water from the Nile.’“ (Exodus 7:16-18)
It is not always easy to understand God's plan for our lives. Sometimes our own self doubt can restrain us from reaching our goals. Do not wait until God has to turn the river into blood or kill the fish in the river of your life; know and believe that you are capable of great things. Have faith in the Lord that our God would not put a trial before you which you are incapable of completing. Trust in the gifts God has given you, and live to glorify our Lord and his people.
Lord we thank you for the gifts you have bestowed upon our lives. We thank you for encouraging us to do great things, we feel the call to achieve great things in your name. We will take our gifts and use them to better your people and this beautiful earth.
