“My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord;”
James 1:2-7 NKJV
To be a ferocious warrior, you need to be able to think differently. You need to be able to look at things that would have frightened you and instead see hope. You need to be able to look at a crisis and see an opportunity for God to reveal Himself in a brand-new way.
Being open to divine innovation is what separates the victorious from the victims because it causes you to see beyond what is to what could be.
Innovation is “the introduction of something new; a new idea, method, or device.” But it can also refer to changes made to something already established. Raise your expectations and believe God for something greater in your life.
Let God give you a vision for the future He has planned for you. Open your mind to new possibilities. And when God shows you how your life or situation can be, take steps forward to make it a reality. Your choices will determine your outcomes. You have the power to shape your future, for good or bad.
Just because something seems established does not mean you don’t have the power to change it.
