Beyond Our Scopes
Deuteronomy 5:33 (NLT) Stay on the path the Lord your God has commanded you to follow. Then you will live long and prosperous lives in the land you are about to enter and occupy.

The best works we will do for God aren’t necessarily on the path we might think they are. In our minds – every possible way we can imagine ourselves serving the Kingdom of God – fits within the talents and abilities we are familiar with about ourselves. But the potential within us is far greater, so God is going to stretch us beyond our scopes and into the fullness of what He’s made us quite capable of doing. Who knows? God just might send us along on new paths that are completely foreign to us – if that’s what. But that’s okay, because He stretches us in ways to make our faith in Him greater as well. God only wants what’s best for us. We only need to want His best for ourselves and comply.
