Hear the Call...
I've been vacillating recently back and forth, in my mind, trying to determine the call on my life from God. I can't even begin to describe the emotional gamut I've experienced, even over the last 24 hours, trying to seek His will for my life. Fear. Frustration. Encouragement. Joy. Negativity. Positivity.
But then it hit me. I'm doing it all wrong.... because I'M TRYING TO DO IT.
I cannot determine God's will. He doesn't ask me to, need me to, or really even want me to.
He simply wants me to surrender. In the moment. In every circumstance.
Oh how difficult this is for a high driven "D" personality style. I want a plan. I want action. I want traction.
I cannot DO anything to catalyze the will of God. And neither can you.
Philippians 2:16 says...
"Hold firmly to the word of life; then, on the day of Christ's return, I will be proud that I did not runt he race in vain and that my work was not useless."
This word of God is so encouraging for me today.
I need to hold firmly to His WORD that brings life. That's all. Be surrendered and open to His prompting and calling... then follow through in that moment.
Strategic plans cannot satisfy this commandment.
Activity cannot substitute.
Traction and accountability cannot surpass His Will.
Are you caught between two sides of a tough decision? Join me in utilizing this time by worshiping through surrenderance. Submit your strategy to God's divine will and plan and TIMING.
In the waiting, let's dive into the WORD for encouragement.
HIS WILL BE DONE ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN....
