Love you all, praying for you,
I just love God’s Word, it’s the story of God’s Love for us, and it’s the story of His Son. Luke 9:51 – As the time approached for him to be taken up into heaven, Jesus resolutely set out for Jerusalem. He knew what God had for Him to do today, and He didn’t delay, He didn’t waste time, He resolutely set out. Have you ever had to so something, or meet someone or finish something that was going to be a difficult task or conversation? You’d rather not do it at all. You wish you could avoid it altogether. Those uncomfortable things that must be done. No matter what you could ever face in a lifetime – it’s no where near what Jesus fully knew He was facing. And He set out resolutely. What are you facing? An uncomfortable task or conversation? Something you’d rather not do or have? So what do you do? Do you avoid it, delay, make excuses, just procrastinate? Or do you resolutely set out? That task or conversation isn’t going to happen by itself. If it must be done – God has a specific time for you to do it. Usually, it’s earlier than later. Now, not tomorrow. Do you run to those things that God has for you, whether pleasant or not? Faithful people – do the difficult things, the things they would rather not do, at the soonest opportunity possible. They do it now, exactly when God tells them. They face them head on, with faith and trust, they go to them, not away from them. Praying that you won’t delay uncomfortable things, they don’t get easier by waiting, just harder. Praying that you will set out resolutely when God tells you to move. Deuteronomy 31:8 – The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you. He will never leave you nor forsake you. The Holy Spirit goes with you, God’s grace will be enough for you, and His favor lasts a lifetime. Praying that you will run to whatever God has for you. If it’s unpleasant or difficult, just hard or not fun… You can trust God completely to give you grace to succeed in it. Praying you will resolutely set out, so you can see that next testimony that God has waiting for you. Sometimes just starting with resolve is the victory and God brings it to completion. You can trust Him, He’s got this… and He goes before you, He surrounds you and is in you!
Love you all,
