Is God Waiting On YOU?

“Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.” (James 1:22)

 
Have you ever prayed for God to move a certain way in your life, and then it seemed like nothing happened?
 
It can be discouraging to feel like God doesn’t hear your prayers. But the reality is, He always hears them and He always cares.
 
So, why the delay?
 
Sometimes, it may be that our plans simply don’t line up with His. But other times when we’re waiting on God, it may actually be that He’s waiting on us.
 
God may want to do something not just for you, but throughyou. You may be the vessel He wants to operate through in order to make a difference in the situation you’re praying about.
 
I don’t know what God has put in your heart, but if it feels like nothing’s happening and you’re stuck waiting, perhaps He’s actually waiting on you to take action. -Steven Furtick

Leveraging Limitations

“Now I take limitations in stride, and with good cheer, these limitations that cut me down to size — abuse, accidents, opposition, bad breaks. I just let Christ take over! And so the weaker I get, the stronger I become.” (2 Corinthians 12:9-10, MSG)

Why God Doesn’t Give Us Step-by-Step Instructions

The LORD had said to Abram, ‘Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.'” (Genesis 12:1)

 
In Genesis 12:1, the Lord tells Abraham, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.” The phrase that’s easily missed in this sentence is, “I will show you.”
 
This indicates Abraham wasn’t told exactly where he was going or how he was to get there before he started. God’s guidance would be given along the way.
 
God gave Abraham a vision of his destination, but He didn’t give him step-by-step directions. This is probably because if God gave us the entire plan at once, then we would start following it instead of Him.
 
It’s normal to want certainty, to even crave it, but walking in your calling will require faith. Having doubts, concerns, and worries is normal, but the good news is you don’t need to have all of the pieces put together before you begin. -Steven Furtick

The God Of The Mundane and The Miracle

“When the LORD saw that he turned aside to see, God called to him out of the bush, ‘Moses, Moses!’ And he said, ‘Here I am.’ Then he said, ‘Do not come near; take your sandals off your feet, for the place on which you are standing is holy ground.'” (Exodus 3:4-5, ESV)

 
Most of the time when we imagine how God wants to use us, we imagine it being in miraculous ways. We think big. We dream big. And we expect big.
 
Not that God won’t ever use us in those ways, but if you look at some of the great miracles in the Bible, they didn’t start that way. In fact, most of them began in mundane, ordinary circumstances.
 
The surprising truth is that great moves of God are usually preceded by simple acts of obedience.
 
Take Moses for example. God used him to part a large body of water and deliver an entire nation from slavery. But that isn’t where it all started.
 
It actually began in a remote field. Moses was tending a flock of animals when God appeared as a burning bush and instructed him to return to Egypt.
 
It was an ordinary moment, interrupted by the beginnings of a miracle. That’s often how God works.
 
Whatever you find yourself doing today, remember that God can meet you in it. -Steven Furtick
