What do you do when you get the urge to do something you normally wouldn’t do. I’m not talking about worldly things; I’m talking Godly things. The urge may have to do with this some aspect in this world, but you know it’s all Him. What do I do? Stupid me, I second guess it as something I dreamed up, delay, and probably miss out on something that I could have had sooner. I think too much. If it sounds too good to be true, I’ll talk myself out of it. Then, the urge comes back, and I know it wasn’t of me. Then, as I progress to follow through with said thing, I get nervous that I just did something stupid. I guess that’s not thinking very well of myself, and it’s not trusting God. That’s bad.
He would NEVER do anything to hurt me. He’d never embarrass me or tell me to do something that would blow up in my face or not make any progress for His kingdom. I think that Christians (or maybe it’s just me) think too much and act too little. If there is something stirred within you that would not harm anyone or yourself, and you know that it’s a step to whatever God has planned, why not go through with it right then? Well, that’s easy. (Sorry. I’m talking in circles, but I promise to make a point. Maybe. You can stop reading now, and it won’t hurt my feelings.) Even though the thing may seem small to someone else, it’s huge to you. You know it’s a small step, but it could be a huge step. That last statement is why you don’t (I don’t) ever do it right then. So, what do I do? I call my friends to see what they say. What do they tell me to do (usually, after a good laugh for the both of us)? Pray. But, it’s so silly one might muse. (This is where the previous post came from.) Nothing is too small if it comes from God. If it concerns you, it concerns God. I have nothing to fear if God’s in control. If He told me to do something that may seem silly to the world, it’s something to progress what He has in store for you.
Whew! I surely talked myself out of a mini-nervous breakdown. OK, I didn’t. God did. He’s always urging me to have faith in Him. He won’t go back on His promise. I just have to take these steps in BLIND faith. I trust that He has my hand and won’t let me go. I don’t have to do any of this on my own. It won’t be easy, but I won’t be alone.
All of this reminds me of Psalm 119:105; Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. You see, the lamp lights each step one at a time. The light for my path is so that I don’t grope around in the dark. I can look behind me and see the steps I’ve taken. I can took ahead and see the path, but I don’t know what the steps are. Those will be revealed when God sees fit. I hope that makes sense. If it doesn’t, I have a great sermon that explains it a lot better.
So, if I haven’t completely scared you away from my journal (I don’t like the word blog very much. It sounds like… I just don’t like it.), I hope that I made sense somehow. I don’t write this stuff all for me. I hope that it help you in some way. If you’d like to talk, let me know! I don’t have very many answers, but I serve an awesome God who has all the answers.
I encourage you to cry out to Jesus at all times. Anticipate His response. In all you do, give Him the glory. Forever. He is infinite, and He will always reveal Himself to you. You will never know all of Him, but take comfort in that you can know Him. You’ll never get bored if you’re truly in tune with your Father. There’s so much to see and do in Him. It’s like a never-ending [insert something you find exhilarating].
For His glory,
