Get Ready, It’s Time to Move

Jeremiah 33:2-3

“AH HA” Moment

Accept yourself, God Made you and He Knows you and Your weaknesses are not show stoppers!

The Lord has being impressing me to write.  The strange thing is that I avoided this task; partly, because it is not something I consider that I do well.  I do not see that I have the skills to write or be a writer; I speak.   And yet I hear the word of Lord coming to me to write.  As I sought the Lord with the question “Are you sure?”  Following the classic Moses actions, giving the Lord reasons why it cannot be me and it should not be me.

Until, one morning during my devotional, the God spoke all so clearly,” I made you Linda.  I designed you just the way you are, with your weaknesses, weaknesses that will cause you to rely on me. Accept the way I made you.”  What? These words resonated with me as I walk through the days that followed.   I realized that in my personal walk with the Lord and the fulfilling of my destiny requires that I first stop denying my weakness and secondly allow God to bless me through my weaknesses.  Not a comfortable place, not at all.

What does this have to do with you?  You ask.  Unfortunately or fortunately, you will get an assignment from God that is beyond your capacity to fulfill. You were not born with any ability that will assist you.   And before you start down the Moses journey of why me and focusing on what you lack in skills and know how, let’s start with the knowledge that we can do all things through Christ, who strengthen you. (Phil 4:13)  God will provide the needed whatever, to ensure that His will is done and you fulfill your purpose.  All you need to be is a willing vessel for Him. Then, understand that God gives jobs, tasks, ministries that are bigger, greater than what we can accomplish alone.  That’s a good thing. Accept the work and understand, in order for the work to move forward, you will have to call on God and trust Him every step of the way.  Jeremiah 33:3 tells you to call on the Lord; He will answer and show you mighty things that you know not of.  Lastly, walk in this truth, God is with you and He is getting all the Glory.  He says in Psalm I will never leave you or forsake you.  Believe Him.   It is time do the work God has given, while it is day.

What has God placed on your heart to do? What is holding you back?

Take the Step of Faith, and See What God does!

Lord, God, It is my prayer: ______________________________________________________________
