“What is God asking you to do?” was the daunting question my pastor asked during her sermon yesterday afternoon. The question that still dwells in the core of my heart and cavity of my brain… I’m aware of what God has asked me to do now I feel like He’s telling me to start doing more. But I don’t want to do more, right now. I’m already struggling with my current responsibilities! But I can’t help but ponder… If my obedience and breakthrough, or the lack thereof, could determine the destiny of others (including my children), maybe I need to just humble myself and obey.
The story of Abraham and his obedience (referenced in my pastor’s sermon yesterday) was a reminder for me to re-evaluate my heart and way of thinking. It was revealed to me that I don’t determine my level of sacrifice, God does and I have to continue to TRUST Him. I can only see breakthrough in my life if I choose to obey Him. Even though I’ve felt like my level a sacrifice (while trying to be obedient) has been high enough in the last 2 years of my life, I still have to consider that God could be asking more of me for a reason deeper than what I could even fathom. Our God is omniscient! He already knows what I need to do and the outcome.
These words have made me sit down and evaluate my life’s purpose, breakthrough and progression toward them both. I hope they will give you a fresh revelation about your life.
