Alright… here I am. Computer keyboard in hand and ready to type. I have a world of things racing through my mind at this moment. The Holy Spirit is working double time on me. (Maybe I’m just being honest with what He has been telling me for over 20 years – for the first time).
To reinforce matters Oswald Chambers hit me upside the head today too.
Our Lord’s making of a disciple is supernatural. He does not build on any natural capacity of ours at all. God does not ask us to do the things that are naturally easy for us— He only asks us to do the things that we are perfectly fit to do through His grace, and that is where the cross we must bear will always come. (My Utmost for His Highest, September 25).
So why all of the fear? What is there to be afraid of?
Do you even know what in the world I am talking about?
I’m talking about 1 Peter 1:7 and Romans 10:14-15. I’m talking about what Joel said to me back in Summer of 1985 – after I talked with him about 1 Peter 1:7. He doesn’t remember it I’m sure… but I do. I’m talking about the Holy Spirit speaking to me in the Fall of 1985 in Old Testament class through Romans 10:14-15.
It’s amazing how our minds recall the “God moments” in our lives.
It’s amazing how it takes 20+ years to say yes… for such a time as this.
