Too often we settle for much less than what God wants to do through us. This could be that we deep down want to keep God into the margins of our life or maybe lack the faith that God can use us in a mighty way. When we read in Jeremiah 32:27: “I am the Lord, the God of all flesh. Is anything too hard for Me?” and we answer, “No, Lord.” Yet when we face difficult situations we begin to qualify our belief in God and lower our expectations of what God will do. It is one thing to believe God could perform a miracle in the Bible, or a thousand years ago, or even in the life of a friend; it is quite another matter to wholeheartedly believe God can do anything He chooses to do in our lives right now!
When Almighty God speaks to us, what we do next proves to what point our heart is willing to trust Him, regardless of what we say. God revealed to Moses His plan to orchestrate the greatest exodus in human history, and He wanted to use Moses to accomplish it. Moses responded by doubting God! Moses was overwhelmed by what he heard and began to make excuses for why he could not participate in God’s activity. This was a great privilege! Moses would have readily acknowledged his belief in God’s power; he simply did not believe God could do His miraculous work through his life. (Exod. 4:13-16). But God is not asking you to lead a nation out of slavery? Do not make assumptions about the size and power of the acts that God has in store. Just examine your heart and push it towards opening up the Creator and Redeemer of all things!
Do you sense there may be far more that God wants to do through your life than what you have been experiencing? Lets ask God to show you what it is. Share your heart with someone in your faith community. Then be prepared to respond in faith and obedience to what Spirit tells you.
