If you want to achieve your dreams you must put aside all the worldly passions of money, material possessions, and what people think of you. In order to reach your purpose in life you must dare to be different from others. If you are going to reach the dream God has given you, you must dare to be different.
It doesn’t matter who you are or what you do or even where you’ve been, deep down their is void. And only Jesus Christ can fill the emptiness and longing of man’s soul. We all need the presence of the Lord’s Spirit. We long for it. We may try to get by on our own and we may even think we have it all together but if we search our hearts long enough we’ll find an emptiness that cannot be met by material things or by our relationships.
If we look at the stories we find in the Bible, we read that Noah was different. “But Noah found favor with the lord. This is the account of Noah and his family. Noah was a righteous man, the only blameless person living on earth at the time, and he walked in close fellowship with God. (Genesis 6:8, 9 NLT)
God liked what he saw in Noah. Everything was headed toward destruction, but two words changed history — “but Noah.” Pastor Rick Warren’s teaching says, “That’s the power of one person. That’s the power of just one individual who chooses to be different.”
Dare to be different. Dare to take a chance on Jesus. Dare to put your trust in His hands and then watch the Holy Spirit work in your life.
Do you want to live your passions? Do you want to make a difference in this life? Then do what Noah did, step out in faith. Take a risk in what God is asking you to do. Follow The One architect who knows how it’s all put together. Be brave. Have faith. Enjoy life. Find your niche. You have just one life and there is a purpose for it.
