Do you want it bad enough? Whether it be our dream, goal, passion, or life-calling, in our journey to achieve it, there are sure to be numerous obstacles, both big and small. With God on our side, we can overcome all the obstacles in our path. The only question we have to ask ourselves is the following: Do we want it bad enough?
If we do, we are willing to do whatever it takes to accomplish the mission. We can have confidence that with God on our side we have the power to achieve His calling for our lives. Knowing this, we must operate in faith, confidence, and trust in Him. We can’t just lean on Him when we get weak—He needs to be our main source of strength!
When we really want something, we go to God in prayer! If our desire for whatever we are asking for is true, we will take whatever action is necessary to achieve what we desire. It’s important to recognize though, God’s intention isn’t to make our lives full of constant and brutal personal sacrifices. He cares for us, He gives us rest, time for recuperation, and what we need to be recharged for the next step of His plan.
In conclusion, if we want it bad enough, we’ll do whatever it takes to get it. We’ll lean into God in prayer, we’ll right our heart, and we’ll walk in obedience to the guidance the Lord gives us. With God on our side, we can overcome any obstacle that may stand in our path. Lean into Him and strive to live in passion, overcome your obstacles, and fulfill your God-given destiny!
