Upwords; Max Lucado –The God of Forward Motion


Believe in the Jesus who believes in you. “‘I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future’” (Jeremiah 29:11).

What will God do for you? It is not ours to say what God will do. It simply falls to us to stand up, take up, and walk. Jesus is serious about this command. When he found the just-healed man in the temple, he told him, “Sin no more, lest a worse thing come upon you” (John 5:14). To indulge in inertia, as the man had done, well that is to sin. Stagnant, do-nothingness is deemed as a serious offense.

God is the God of forward motion, the God of tomorrow. The God of what’s next?, and he is ready to write a new chapter in your biography.
