As I was cleaning my room the other day, I began to think of how many times I feel down and out. How I feel so depressed and fixated on myself I forget about God. I forget about His love. His love for me. His love for this world. I realized how selfish I really am.
We are called, not to remain silent, but to tell the world. Tell the world of His love. Of His mercy. Of His grace. His forgiveness. We have the biggest responsibility of our day. The responsibility to tell the world. If we don’t who will?
The church today has fallen asleep. Myself included. We don’t have a real understanding of what’s at stake. Countless souls that are going to hell. People like you and me. We walk past these people every day. People crying out inside for help.
We are called to be the hands and feet of Jesus. He said to go into all the world, and preach the gospel, and make disciples, heal the sick, and cast out devils, in His name. To be the vessels He works through. We’re slacking. We’re so caught up with our own little worlds that we miss the big picture. We’re too focused on ourselves, on our own inadequacy, we forget it’s God who works in and through us. It’s not us at all.
My own brothers and sisters in Christ are hurting. They have things they’re going through, and instead of helping them, all I can think of is myself. What people think of me. What I think of myself.
I’m so sick and tired of being indecisive. Of constantly going back and forth. It’s time to take a stand. To be steadfast. Immovable.
I am a child of God. How dare I ever think He is not enough. That His love isn’t enough. That His will isn’t perfect.
I’ve been allowing fear to control my life for far too long. Allowing fear to keep me silent. Allowing fear to tell me what I can and can’t do. It’s time that I take my place in the plan God has for me, and trust Him no matter what.
For those of you who are in the same place I am, I hope this encourages you to take a step of faith and say you too have had enough. That we will step out together, into the destiny God has called us to, and tell the world.
