We’re entering day two of Chase the Lion, strong conviction set in when Mark makes the valid point that God does not say “well thought-out good and faithful servant” but He does say “well DONE good and faithful servant.” Being challenged to take your dreams and make them obedient to Christ. I must say I have never thought of it that way and was forced to think about it how this looks in my own life:
When God called me one step closer to my destiny I had to make a choice; Think or Do. I decided to Do something. It required me to walk off the ledge and trust that God would bring the ground beneath my feet, and did He deliver? more than I could ever ask for. It was scary, it was hard and I questioned a million times whether I had done the right thing, but every time I was ready to give up, God gave me confirmation that I was walking in His will for my life. He dropped bread crumbs to let me know that He was still leading my path and had not forgotten about me. But the first part of this whole process started with me, putting my faith in Christ alone, and not letting anyone… not even my family deter me from what I knew in my heart was the right thing to DO.
The truth is God can’t radically move in our lives unless we let Him. It’s something we always pray about and ask for but when rubber meets the road we shy away. This is what happens when we put more faith in what we see rather than putting our faith in what is unseen. We easily believe He created the heavens, the earth, and all the living things, but when it comes to believing in His destiny for us we easily make excuses as to why "it can't be".
Let's cast doubt aside and put our full faith in Christ, lets see what our God can truly do. He marvels at the chance to impress His children and bless us beyond comprehension, showing us the true purpose and meaning to this beautiful life.
“Therefore if there is any encouragement in Christ, if there is any consolation of love, if there is any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and compassion, make my joy complete by being of the same mind, maintaining the same love, united in spirit, intent on one purpose.” Phil 2:1 -2
