CampGround Convo “The Pendulum”

Matthew 14:22-32

Nothing is different until you think different. In life, day in & day out, we get into a groove. A rhythm. And we start to think, I’m finally getting the hang of this. All the while, God is saying, You’re finally getting complacent. Tradition is good, but change is better. Life is meant to change, and everything is in the process of becoming something else. If you handicap this change, you handicap your life.

When you accept complacency, you accept mediocracy. There will always be someone smarter, cuter, stronger, faster, richer, taller, curvier… but there will never be anyone better, unless you let them. You will always be you. No one can be you, so the only person who can be better than you is you. So embrace the change that God is releasing into your life. Have faith.

He made you to be supernatural. Maximize your potential and experience it. The biggest mistake you could ever make is to fail to reach your full potential. Talk to Him. Ask Him for discernment so you’re not held hostage by the natural you see in yourself everyday – ask Him to show you the supernatural within yourself. The funny thing about being weak is the power it has to make you strong. You’d never knew how much you could endure until you were forced to.

Look at the passage. God did not ask only Peter to walk on water. He was just the only one who had the balls to do it. Everyone else was complacent and complaining. Don’t let everyone around you determine how great you will be. Don’t let their comfort pull you into being less than your potential, just because they are okay with where they are at in life. Even if they think they can’t – just because you haven’t seen it before, doesn’t mean it can’t be done. Let your pendulum swing to move into the maximum. Be supernatural. Be your best you. Be faithful.
