Have you ever been scared to step out in faith to accomplish what God has called you to do?
I have. Many times.
I spoke to a teacher yesterday who stood up for her convictions regarding purity in front of her class. She works in a school that is extremely secular. As a result, she got severely reprimanded for voicing out what the Scriptures say. I told her that God’s authority supersedes all human authority. I prayed for wisdom and discernment so she can do what God has called her to do.
To some it’s standing for your convictions.
For others, it may mean saying no to ungodly business practices.
Or saying no to your boyfriend who wants you to go all the way.
For a few others, it’s asking for forgiveness to let go of some form of bitterness.
Whatever your circumstance might be, it is not our ability that validates the call to do His will, but the presence of God in all that we do.
Moses in Exodus gave God a barrage of questions.
“Who am I to do this?”
“What will I say?”
“How will I do this?” (Ex. 3:11-12)
But God only gave one answer, “I will be with you.”
Yup. That’s it.
“I will be with you.”
You see, it doesn’t matter who you are as long as you know who He is.
And it doesn’t matter who you’ll be up against as long as you know Who is with you.
May this encourage you this week as you discover, do and delight in His will.
