“Don’T Settle For Less”

Key Verse

“… and thy expectation shall not be cut off.” Proverbs 23:18

Text — Proverbs 23:11-18


Jerry was expecting a very high score in his promotion examination. He put in much efforts by reading very hard and prepared for the examinations, but when the result was out, he passed, but not what he expected. He was discouraged, but his father encouraged him not to settle for less.

The enemy can’t stop God’s plan for your life, but he’ll do his best to convince you to settle along the way. If you’re going to become all you were created to be, you have to make up your mind, with a resolve that says, “I refuse to settle for less than what God promised me.” What God promised you, will come to pass.

And the Lord shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath;” (Deuteronomy 28:13a) Amen.
