Back in October of 2009, God began stretching me in a particular area. I felt that He was asking me to take a huge step of faith. There were moments when I found myself doubting I could do what I felt God was leading me to do.
I questioned God by asking Him, “I’ve already got so much on my plate. Are You sure about this timing?” I thought, “How in the world could I accomplish what He’s calling me to do?”
The answer to that question was simple: I couldn’t; at least not on my own. However, God could accomplish those things through me. I took the step of faith and God was faithful to enable me to do what He called me to do. Philippians 4:13 reminds us that we “…can do all things through Him who strengthens me.” (NASB)
When God calls us to do something, He does not expect us to accomplish the task on our own. Quite the contrary! He wants us totally dependent on Him then and always, knowing that it’s only because of Him that we can do anything. It is our nature to doubt that we can do what God calls us to do.
However, God has no doubt that we can accomplish the tasks He has called us to do because it’s His strength that enables us to do those things. Is God calling you to take a step of faith and to trust Him to help you accomplish what He is calling you to do? Are you willing to take that step of faith? There’s no doubt about it…God will help you do what He calls you to do. Trust Him. He is faithful.
“Faithful is He who calls you, and He also will bring it to pass.”
– 1 Thessalonians 5:24 (NASB)
“Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for enabling me to do what You have called me to do. Help me to take the step of faith You are asking me to take. Help me to trust You to accomplish what You are calling me to do. Lord, with you all things are possible, including…”
