“He didn’t tiptoe around God’s promise asking cautiously skeptical questions. He plunged into the promise and came up strong, ready for God, sure that God would make good on what he had said.”
Romans 4:19 MSG
There comes a point in life that your faith becomes stronger by facing the facts, not weaker.
The facts may not be friendly or encouraging or what you want to face but as a child of God, you can face them. You can deal with reality instead of running from it.
How? By knowing that your circumstances do not define you, God does.
God chose you.
God loves you.
That thing that God has called you to? You can’t make it happen but He can.
To be who God has created you to be you are going to have to let go of “doing your best” and embrace “depending on God”.
You new life in God’s family isn’t “success and failure” based.
It isn’t “today, I did a good job” so I’m feeling good or “I totally messed up ” and being depressed.
You will do a good job. You will make mistakes. This is not about denying how you feel. It is about allowing God’s feelings for you to be the foundation of how you experience your life.
His part is to guide and provide, your part is to follow and trust.
In Jesus, you have full rights as a child of God to live fully persuaded that God is able to do above and beyond all you can ask or imagine.
He is able.
What are you asking for?
What are you imagining?
What are you trusting God in today?
