letting go sometimes is a hard thing to do, especially when you’re young and you have so many dreams, ambitions and desires that you want to go after. But have you left God out of the equation? Are you going after His will or your way?
When the Lord asks us to do something it can be overwhelming, believe me when the Lord called me to preach, I felt like Moses who didn’t have it all together, the right skills, etc. Those are the people that He wants to use, those who know nothing.
Exodus 3:11 “But Moses said to God, “Who am I that I should go to pharaoh, and that I should bring the children of Israel out of Egypt?”
Q: Who am I? Who are you?
A: You are a blood bought child of God, redeemed and loved who has been qualified to do the task at hand, nothing shall stop you! You can do anything and everything through Christ!
Exodus 4:10 “Then Moses said to the Lord, O my Lord, I am not eloquent, neither before nor since You have spoken to Your servant; but I am slow of speech and slow of tongue.”
Excuses, excuses. Our disabilities has no excuse for His ability to use us, no matter what it is. If He has called you, He will equip you!
My own desires and passions have swallowed me so deep
That I had replaced them with nothing but bitter-sweet melodies that at times make me want to scream.
I walk aimlessly through the day awaiting Your leading, Your direction and without patience I make my move
Finding out that I have went down the wrong path.
But through it all You lead me out so that I may try again.
You tell me, one foot behind Me, one hand in Mine as we journey along this journey called life.
– This Journey Called Life
May we never place our wants in front of our needs. We may want a lot of things in life that fulfill us for a momentary time, not only spiritual but in the physical life of things. We may focus on our career at times more than Christ and we may want to do things that we Want to do but does God? These past few months God has shown me that our needs are in Him, not of this World. How could I have forgotten that? Because my focus was not entirely on Christ, my object of faith was not entirely in Christ. May we find the joy that He alone has for us when we walk alongside of Him with one hand in His.
