We hear it said over and over agin, perhaps even we are guilty of saying it ourselves.
“I feel like I’m supposed to be doing this but it’s so hard.”
or perhaps it sounds a little bit more like this, “I feel God wants me to do this but I also feel like no one else really wants what I’m trying to do/offer.”
Have you ever said something similar to that? Pretty sure I have.
Yet, here’s the thing. When you feel like the Lord has called you to do something, you need to do it. You need to give it your all because the Lord is the same, yesterday, today and forever. He is still that very same God that knocked city walls down by having people walk around them. He is still that same God that delivered a nation of slaves and split the Red Sea when they were in trouble. He is still the same God that opens the prison cells. He is still the same God that rose and walked out of the grave.
That’s the God that I serve, Yeshua. Emmanuel. The Beginning and the End. The God of Abraham, the God of Issac, the God of Jacob. That’s my God. Is that your God?
Exodus 4 tells us that we are not alone in our fear.
“Moses answered, “what if they do not believe me or listen to me and say “The Lord did not appear to you’?”
Then the Lord said to him, “What is that in your hand?”
“A staff,” he replied.
The LORD said, “Throw it on the ground.” Moses threw it on the ground and it became a snake, and he ran from it.
The Lord continued to show himself to Moses, the same way that He continues to show himself to us. We wake up daily, but often don’t thank the Lord. When we don’t know how groceries will be put on the table – He provides. When we are up at night with sick children and pray that God will lower their fever, He does.
Yet, we tend to be like Moses when it comes to stepping out and taking the path that God tells us.
“But Moses said, “Pardon your servant, Lord. Please send someone else.”
What will you do when you feel the Lord has called you?
Will you ask him to take that task away or will you step up and allow him to part the Red Seas in your life?
