If you want something you’ve never had you’ll need to do something you’ve never done.
Most true Christians say they want to do great things for God. But at the same time, they admit they aren’t doing much for God right now because of their busy circumstances. They go through life kidding themselves, with the notion that at some point in the future, their circumstances will change and then they’re going to commit all to God and begin a life of great usefulness to the Lord. The problem is that day never arrives.
Instead of waiting for our circumstances to change to improve our service to God, maybe we should focus on improving our service to God so our circumstances will change. Many people who have been mightily used of God in ministry were ordinary people in ordinary circumstances just like yours who had a vision of change and started serving God with their whole heart right where they were.
They began their extraordinary new life by redeeming the time.
