3 Insights To Making History

If you wanna make history the future must be important to you.

Hindsight is 20/20 of course but Futuresight requires insight. Use the past to plan, prepare and supersede expectations in the future. Don’t limit yourself to knowledge (as knowledge grows) rather dare to dream about possibilities and prospects because of what you have seen in the past and know of the present. Remember God and the things He has done! He’s not finished yet and even greater things await those who are willing to embrace a future unknown rather than attempt to hold  a past that is fading. God is a creating God and He is waiting to create the future with you and through you. Allowing the future to become more important creates a greater probability that you will make history and not just read about it.

If you wanna make history you have to care about the significant.

History makers are people who often sacrifice for the greater good and for the causes that inspire them. Caring about colors of paint to how a certain team in the NBA is doing is not wrong it’s just significantly less significant. Sadly we are people who tend to care more about things that never personally affect us than the things that really do! Remember that there are certain people and certain tasks that if you ignore, if you neglect, if you set aside, that will never be taken care of and therefore never changed. Evaluate what is really significant to you and to God. See if they match.

If you wanna make history, don’t lose the plot.

We must remember that history is His Story. Don’t become so wrapped up in your own drama that you fail to see God’s overarching story of love, grace, peace, hope etc. that He wants to display through your own story. The story is not about you! It’s about how God moves and works His good will and pleasure through you. Don’t clot the plot by stopping up God’s voice with your own. Make history by making His Story known.
