“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. The facts being that human effort can not achieve the fulfillment of God’s promise.
That thing that God has called you to? You can’t make it happen. You never could.
Once you really grasp this your faith is set free to rest in God alone.
To be who Jesus has created you to be you are going to have to let go of “doing your best” and embrace “depending on God”.
This 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.
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, and give glory to God.
Your part is to live fully persuaded that God is able to do above and beyond all you can ask or imagine.
My friend, don’t tiptoe around God’s promises today, dive into them. Take the plunge and live fully persuaded.
