Good Ideas vs. God Ideas

I’ve been processing Good Ideas vs God Ideas lately as the good ideas always seem to overflow, but the God ideas I have to till the ground for. Yep, for me good ideas and creative solutions are something that come easy. But sadly, most of my good ideas are just that, mine. I don’t want to live off my ideas, I want to live off of God’s as I have to sustain mine, and His just fall into place. 

This is what I’ve learned over the last few years about Good vs God

Good ideas have a shelf life
God ideas are eternal

Good ideas are man made
God ideas are God ordained

Good ideas build just you
God ideas build you + the Kingdom

Good ideas cost money
God ideas cost surrender

 

 

Good ideas can be used by God, but God ideas are already fired in the furnaces of his presence — they’re already ready. Wait for the God idea, they are so much better than the good ones.

Exceedingly Above

Exceedingly Above

Exceedingly, abundantly above all I could ask or imagine

I used to think the above statement was a place. Perhaps a season of my life I’d eventually get to when I had a certain amount of money, or car, or kids, or the absence of my everyday struggles that plague me. But it’s not.

It’s God’s best for me, not my best for me.  

It’s a surrendered mindset that understands that what God has for you is better than what you could ever dream up in your mind and for yourself.

it’s finally surrendering, it’s living at the edge of yourself and allowing God to take-over. It’s a bit scary in the ✨𝙀𝙭𝙘𝙚𝙚𝙙𝙞𝙣𝙜𝙡𝙮, 𝙖𝙗𝙪𝙣𝙙𝙖𝙣𝙩𝙡𝙮, 𝙖𝙗𝙤𝙫𝙚 𝙖𝙡𝙡 𝙄 𝙘𝙤𝙪𝙡𝙙 𝙖𝙨𝙠 𝙤𝙧 𝙞𝙢𝙖𝙜𝙞𝙣𝙚✨ cos I never asked for this stuff or this season or thought I was qualified to sustain it, but here ( in the surrendered ) I just have to stay surrendered.

So, Stop striving for the better and surrender to the best!

This doesn’t mean you won’t accomplish your dreams; it just means when you do they may not be as satisfying as you hoped – as you can’t find peace or true satisfaction apart from HIS dreams for you. So if you can embrace this ✨𝙀𝙭𝙘𝙚𝙚𝙙𝙞𝙣𝙜𝙡𝙮, 𝙖𝙗𝙪𝙣𝙙𝙖𝙣𝙩𝙡𝙮, 𝙖𝙗𝙤𝙫𝙚 𝙖𝙡𝙡 𝙄 𝙘𝙤𝙪𝙡𝙙 𝙖𝙨𝙠 𝙤𝙧 𝙞𝙢𝙖𝙜𝙞𝙣𝙚✨mindset now — life will look and feel and be different – and above all, you could ever ask or imagine.

True story.
