Greater Works- One Verse 2017

Along with my One Word for each year, I choose a focus verse. This year my verse jumped out at me like a fountain in the scorching hot desert.

And you better believe I dove in headfirst.

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.” –John 14:12

This verse hits me with conviction like a bag of bricks.

WHY am I not walking in this? Listen, folks, we have no excuses. God has called us to greater and I am determined to walk in what He has called me to. I cannot let anything hold me back any longer. Lives and souls are hanging in the balance while I sit around twiddling my thumbs cause I’m just little old me.

I refuse to allow it any longer. I am compelled to call this verse forth in my life and demand action.

Yes, it’s easy to read the accounts of the ministry of Jesus and become intimidated. Especially when trying to comprehend the possibility that He Himself said we are capable of doing greater. But y’all, it’s right there in red and white. His Word is faithful and true. We must realize it’s not about us. It’s about Him!

I am declaring that this is the season I begin walking in greater works. I am declaring greater to be made manifest. Why? Because as long as I have Jesus on the inside of me then I am not operating in my own strength, but in the very power of the Living God!

Greater, come forth!! The time is now!
