What am I waiting for??
I got slapped in the face last night. Not by my wife or daughter, but had that light bulb moment where God in his grace lovingly shows me how big of an idiot I am.
I will to do good. I want to live a life transformed by the Lord. But I struggle…. By God really hit me with this phrase… Instant obedience. I can talk my self out of anything I feel like God is prompting me to do. Fast. I can rationalize, justify, and make excuses faster than Aubryn is growing up (which is stupid fast).
But God really pressed in to me and asked me for Instant Obedience. If I feel God is prompting me, just do it! Because I will talk my self out of it- I have seen me do it! Its just like when Jesus is calling the disciples in Matthew 4:18-22. Jesus called Simon, Andrew, James, and John to be his disciples. And v. 20 and 22 both start with “Immediately.” They all four of them immediately left everything and followed him…
If you feel God is calling you to move to China, get a team to pray over you and seek wise council.
But men, if God is calling you to pray over your wife and daughter before they leave in the morning, practice Instant Obedience. (thats my story this morning)
If God is prompting you to read the bible, practice Instant Obedience, stop, and read the word.
If you see a need today and feel a stirring in your soul to meet it, practice Instant Obedience. Do it.
What are you waiting for?
