Take the Plunge 


There comes a point in life that your faith becomes stronger by facing the facts. 

The facts being that human effort can not achieve the fulfillment of God’s promise. 

You can’t make it happen. You never could. 

“Without weakening in his faith, he faced the fact that his body was as good as dead—since he was about a hundred years old—and that Sarah’s womb was also dead.”

‭‭Romans‬ ‭4:19‬ ‭NIV‬‬

That is the moment your faith is set free to rest in God alone. You must let go of  “doing your best” and embrace “depending on God”.  

It sets you free to shift your focus from yourself and your works to God and His works. It shifts from giving yourself the glory of “today, I did a good job” or depression of ”I totally missed it” to giving God all the glory for all He has done and will do, instead.

God chose you. 

“Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised.”

‭‭Romans‬ ‭4:20-21‬ ‭NIV‬‬

God chose you to be a partner in the promise but the lion’s share of strength, inspiration, motivation and miracle is all God’s.

Your part is to receive, rest, wait, give glory to God</i> and live fully persuaded that God is able to do above and beyond all you can ask or imagine. 

Take the plunge…live fully persuaded. 

God IS able.
