I will have to take you down my path as I have no idea what type of path you are on or have been. My path starts out when I was young and continued to the age of forty three. Though I don’t remember a lot of my younger life, I do remember things and times from the age of sixteen on. Times that I sat out to accomplish who knows what. I had no idea what I wanted to accomplish in my life and even if I did I had no idea how I was going to get there. Sound a little familiar?
As we go through life we place our focus on material things and never once give thought to the spiritual. Our complete goal in life is to be successful, have everything that money can buy and to be noticed by others. We always felt that having all of these things was going to make us happy. Ok now I have touched a nerve and some are wondering how on earth does he know about my life? I don’t, but I do know that if I thought about it there were others that felt the same way or had the same thoughts. I wanted to accomplish all I could in my life so that when I got old I didn’t have to worry.
Well like Dr. Phil would say, “How’s that working for you?” Here it is several years later and those aspiring goals and things I hoped I would accomplish are still just a memory and that has taken me over fifty years. There have been some things that I have been fortunate to accomplish but nothing like I had dreamed of or thought of.
One day the Lord came into my life and the game and the rules all changed. I began to see things I could accomplish and they became a reality. One of the biggest things for me that I had originally set out to accomplish for myself was to be important, to have people notice me. After finding Jesus in my life, that really didn’t seem like a priority anymore. I am still not famous, I don’t have people telling me how important I am and to be honest I really don’t care if they notice me or not. I began to accomplish the little things in life, like showing compassion to others, or not be so angry all the time. The only person that I had to impress was God and in spite of myself He loves me anyway.
I may not be successful in most people’s eyes and according to their standards, but I am a great success in God’s eyes. Though I never in my wildest dream ever thought I would be where I am today based on my past, I am very successful. I get the opportunity to travel to distant lands and minister the Word of God to those who are desperate for the supernatural. I get to go into places that most would not even go and tell people how much Jesus loves them. It did not take me fifty years to accomplish that, it was done by the Word of God and in one hour. I said yes to Jesus and the next thing I knew things were changing. In one hour I accomplished more than I ever thought possible. In one hour with God I went from having no idea what I was going to do let alone know how I was going to do it to reaching out and speaking to those He lead me to.
That is my path and if I were to venture a guess, my path is probably very similar to yours. Some of you may still be struggling with trying to accomplish some feat some goal and you don’t have Jesus on your side? Let me remind you of the title, I can accomplish more in one hour with God than I can in a lifetime without Him. To this point in life you have tried to do everything in your own power and in your own way and for some things you have managed to accomplish but wow it took you for what you thought was an eternity. There are many things you may still have to try to accomplish so why not try accomplishing them with the help of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ? I am not the only one who gave up one day and asked Jesus into my heart only to find out how true that really was there are literally thousands of people who have done the exact same thing. Come and join our ranks and let Jesus show you the way and then you will really see what accomplishments you will get done.
If you don’t know Jesus and want to know Him, right now right where you are ask Him to come into your life. Tell him you accept Him as your Lord and Savior and ask Him to forgive you. This may seem simple to accomplish but it is highly effective in your life. You don’t have to use long drawn out words. There is power in the name of Jesus and He will show you just how much you can accomplish in just one hour with Him.
God Bless You
