I have really good intentions. Seriously, I do. But sometimes I lack in the follow through.
I am so grateful that Jesus didn't lack in the follow through.
His father asked him to go to cross. He intended to and he did.
His father asked him to bear the sins of the world. He intended to and he did.
His father asked him to be the way, the truth and the life. He intended to and he did.
And none of this was easy. But he did it anyway.
Oh that I would have the courage to follow through. That I would have the courage to do what he is asking me to do and be willing to follow through. Even though it isn't easy.
I want to...
- Be willing to do the hard stuff.
- Be willing to offer the things I hold most dear...if it is what the Lord is asking me to do.
Today, I want to be a doer and not an intender.
Lord, you are asking me to step out in faith and I am trying to do so. You are asking me to do things that make me uncomfortable and I am trying to do so. But, Lord, it is hard. And scary. And sometimes gives me a sick feeling in my stomach. I know you will hold my hand and walk me through the process. And for that I am very thankful.
What is he asking you to do today?
What scary step is he asking you to take?
While I didn't exactly hear this on Sunday, it does remind me of the sacrifice God asked of Abraham. Abraham was asked to offer Issac. Abraham intended to and the Lord provided an alternative. I did hear THAT on Sunday.
