You could’ve taken off like a rocket ship with tanks of fuel lighting your tail, sending you fast to reach the stars. Yet, God chose a different journey; one with a paced climb, step by step, your path ascending a little higher each day.
Sometimes it seems slow. Painfully so. But, have you ever considered it just means the potential on the inside is powerful. Therefore, great care has to be taken in developing, caring, and raising your growth inch by inch.
Shooting high and shooting fast – the world has enough of that. Superstars with no substance are all they are. But, God made you to be a champion.
So what’s the big deal?
Champions create change. Champions endure – they tough it out. They fight the cause with the very last breath, staking their all to see victory come to its best. They are a peculiar creature not willing to forgo the promise or give up too quickly on the process. There’s a hope and a knowing that if they just stay on the wheel a little while longer the Master will develop a treasure from this little lump of clay.
Your value is too precious to be rushed. Let those who will zoom if they please. But you, my friend, take joy in knowing there is great care being taken in making you who He wants you to be. So, let Him have His way and perfect the precious in you.
Spotlight creepers. Thrill seekers. This course is not for you. Only champions, whose heart will bend to His molding; who will ride the wheel to impact lives will understand this can’t be rushed. They are created for more and with that, embrace the process of being shaped, knowing dear champion, that’s who God wants you to be.
“. . . Behold, as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are ye in mine hand . . .” Jeremiah 18:6
