Has God every put something on your heart that you should do and you find excuses not to do it? They may even be valid excuses when you think logically and doing what God wants you to do may not be logical at all.
Yup. That's me. And lately? Lately I have been really convicted in this area. What if, what you are being asked to do makes no financial sense? What if what you are being asked to do scares you? What if what God is asking you to do is not part of 'your plan'? What if it means everything in your life is up in the air?
Today I was reminded that on that day when I stand before the throne, I will be shown the regrets and the rewards that span my life. Am I investing my gifts or hiding them? Am I honouring Him with my gifts or insulting Him with my excuses? Fear is the opposite of trust and faith.
Without faith it is impossible to please God.
So, this morning I whisper a prayer for us all as we each dare to go out and do that which God has asked us to do this new year.
Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love,
for I have put my trust in you.
Show me the way I should go,
for to you I entrust my life.
