I want the life God planned for me……..some days will be easy and some days will be hard. But, I know that I’ve been given a strength to withstand those moments when I would like to turn and walk away.
God’s plan is usually not ours. I believe God places on our heart, in a quiet voice, what he would like us to do. Of course, theses moments usually seem to happen when we least expect it and you hear it in the quiet of your heart ”Will you…..?”
Have you ever said one of these statements to yourself?
- “well, it’s not really the best time God”
- “I don’t really have the money to do that”
- “are you serious? me?”
- “I can’t do that I’m not strong enough”
I hope that in those moments you will pause and think for a moment that maybe the Lord is using you to affect change in the life of someone else? Or possibly to save a life. If you feel you are not strong enough to handle the task the Lord has entrusted you with just stop for a moment and think of the scripture Corinthians 10: 13 (MSG) All you need to remember is that God will never let you down; he’ll never let you be pushed past your limit; he’ll always be there to help you come through it.
If you depend on the strength from Heaven, the Lord will walk you through those moments you want to Run From and say “this is not for me”! As this new year begins, and even when I’m weary, I will continue to chose to walk towards those challenging moments, because they will force me to depend fully on the Lord.
I find myself often asking “How do I do this Lord?”.
On those days when I feel I’ve fallen short of the job and plan the Lord has given me, I press in further to his love and scripture where it says, He will always be there. And then I get up and say “with The Lord’s strength, I’ve got this”.
