Try God.

TRY God… for Nachand Hyde Trabue by Hannah L. Drake
To Try
To Dare
To Believe
To Have Faith
To Trust
Try God
Two words that will change your life

God comes so that we can have life and have it more abundantly
God didn’t challenge you to a life of mediocrity
But too often we settle
We settle for our job
We settle in our relationships
We settle in our health
We settle in our finances
We settle in our dreams
We accept average as if excellence is not an option
 
But you come from a line of excellence
People that dared to Try God in ridiculous circumstances
Like Fannie Lou Hamer that said, “You can pray until you faint, but unless you get up and try to do something, God is not going to put it in your lap.
It was Malcom X that said, “The future belongs to those who prepare for it today.”
And Martin Luther King Jr said, “Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.”
Mary McLeod Bethune who said, “Faith is the first factor in a life devoted to service. Without it, nothing is possible. With it, nothing is impossible.”
Or Rosa Parks that said, “I have learned over the years that when one’s mind is made up, this diminishes fear; knowing what must be done does away with fear.”
Or Dorothy Heights that said, “I want to be remembered as one who tried.”
 
You come from people that tried.
Average isn’t in our DNA
Mediocrity can never be the default
Kendrick Lamar was correct when he said. “You have loyalty and royalty inside your DNA.”
 
Trust God when God says, “For I know, not I think or I sorta kinda believe, but I KNOW the plans I have for you. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Trust God when the Bible says, “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”
Trust that, “With man it is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
Believe that God can enlarge your territory
Have faith that God can give you a life that exceeds your wildest imaginations
I dare you to put God to the test
“Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My house, and test Me now in this if I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you a blessing until it overflows.”
And not just in your finances but in every aspect of your life!
Take a chance on God and take a chance on you
You have bet on everything and everyone else
When are you going to stand up and have the courage to believe?
When are you going to stop saying tomorrow? Tomorrow may never come. The Bible says, “If you wait for perfect conditions, you will never get anything done.”
When are you going to stop thinking everything will go wrong and trust that everything can go right? Remember, “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
At some point, you have to jump and trust that the parachute will appear
Whatever that thing is that keeps you up at night
Whatever that thing is that you wanted to be before the world told you what you had to be
Whatever that thing is that you cannot shake
THAT is the thing God wants you to do and watch God blow your mind
Just believe, have faith and TRY GOD!
