Who's it gonna to be?

The following is adapted from a post by Steven Furtick, Lead Pastor of Elevation Church in Charlotte, North Carolina:

Who’s it going to be?

Why not YOU?

Who’s going to be used by God in ways they never dreamed about before?

Who’s going to take their life and ministry to the next level?

Who’s going to break an addiction that has been a stronghold in your life for far too long?

Who’s going to come up with the next innovative idea that everyone says won’t work?

Who’s going to step up and assume leadership where there has been no leadership?

Who’s going to believe God for the impossible, the unthinkable, the miraculous?

Who’s it going to be?

Why not you? Why not now?

Or, negatively, who’s it going to be?

Who’s going to forfeit their marriage by having an affair?

Who’s going to ignore their kids and give their lives to the job until it’s too late?

Who’s going to lose their job because of a lapse of integrity?

Who’s going to bomb out in their walk with Jesus?

Who’s going to continue to let the TV dominate their lives, values and time?

Who’s going to stop spending time alone with God because they’re just too busy?

Who’s it gonna be?

It could be anybody.

It must not be you.

Jesus has too much he still wants to accomplish through you.

This next year lies before you. What you’re going to do with it is a blank slate. The person you’re going to be by the end 2019 is yet to be determined.

You aren’t destined to be caught in an ever-downward spiraling motion of failure, defeat and discouragement.

You won’t get anywhere by looking into the rearview mirror.  2019 is a new year with new opportunities and challenges. Forget what is behind and reach for what is before you, by His grace! (Philippians 3:13)

This could be the year where it all comes apart…or this could be the year when it all comes together for His honor and purposes!

The choice is yours.

So what’s it going to be…who’s it going to be?

The answer to that question will determine how you invest in 2019.
