It Really Is That Simple

imagesI honestly didn’t know what to write. I felt prompted to write, that I was supposed to write and I just wrote an entry but soon found myself deleting the whole thing. Words and even topics eluded me. Fear of having value crept in, so with the touch of a button it was gone. After pondering the idea of letting the lid close on my attempt, I am obediently choosing to write and will trust God to use my words. I have no topic, no plan, nothing today. I just know I am supposed to write.

Isn’t that how life works sometimes? We go through the motions and wait for the feelings to follow. Do the next right thing. Fake it ‘til you make it. Smile when you would rather scream. Just doing what you know you “ought” to do.

Throughout scripture, God asks that we trust, believe and then keep going forward, not backwards. It is a theme that has echoed in my life since November 2013. I think I now know why and I find it odd I never had seen it before…just how much we are told we MUST trust in Him, believe in the promises of God and to wait expectantly for Him to lead us into a life of purpose and goodness and all the other stuff that makes up our MORE, which is our destiny and our reason for being here. Not the MORE we thought we were made for that has anything to do with this world, but the MORE we are invited into and the MORE that just keeps revealing itself as we seek more of our King.

It will show up. He will come through. We will falter. He will reign.

As I trusted and believed today that I had something I was supposed to do, even though I didn’t want to do it–I did it, and He had something to say through me. Now I am smiling. I was used for something that was bigger than me. It really is that simple. There is always MORE to His ways than what we first see.

We are confident of all this because of our great trust in God through Christ. It is not that we think we are qualified to do anything on our own. Our qualification comes from God. He has enabled us to be ministers of his new covenant. This is a covenant not of written laws, but of the Spirit. The old written covenant ends in death; but under the new covenant, the Spirit gives life. 2 Corinthians 3:4-6
