Esther 4:14 says "And who knows whether you have not come to the kingdom for such a time as this?" We were created for MORE. MORE than just the material things of this world. MORE than the routines of this world. The definition of MORE means greater <MORE than what we expected> We expect our lives to be one way, but God can produce MORE in and through us! Ephesians 3:20 says "Now to him who is able to do immeasurably MORE <greater than what we expected> than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us." God has you right where you are to influence those around you! To leave a legacy pointing people to Him. He has us in this Kingdom to fulfill His purpose and we should seek that reason, understand it and follow it! Keep it in front of us as our passion, our purpose, our reason we exist! Let's not settle for just mediocre-let's bring out the best in others and the best in ourselves! See the potential in others and speak that over them! Recognize that you have been given specific gifts from Him and evaluate if you are utilizing them to their full capabilities! God can use you right where you are; all we have to do is be willing to let Him use us! You were made for such a time as this and You were made for MORE! God, use us for MORE!

Ever had times in your mind where you are thinking "there's got to be MORE"? MORE than just getting up every day, making a cup of coffee, heading to work, coming home, taking care of the kids, eating dinner, watching a little tv, going to bed and then doing it all over again the next day? Throw in some dinners out to eat, family vacations and church get togethers to give our life what? purpose? excitement? add fun to our otherwise time-filled days? Purchase cars, houses, toys-things that will fulfill our lives and bring meaning and purpose to them? Really? That's why we exist on this earth, at this time, for this reason? I'm not saying that any of those things are bad, just that God wants MORE for us than that!
