Sometimes when we are reading the word of God and are tempted to skip “that verse” or “that entire passage” because it stings a little, we need to remind ourselves that trusting God is not always about trusting him to do what we want him to do for us or a loved one.
Sometimes it is about trusting him enough to help us do what he is calling us to do.
What a radical thing it would be if we, as Christians would do just that.
If we would trust God enough to actually do what He calls us to do (even if we are scared or even if we have to wait), because we know that He loves us enough to be watching over us and will guide us to where He wants to be.
So often I think God could not be saying that to me, and I remain silent.
I tell myself it is not God, because in reality I am afraid that if I step out I might look stupid, or might get myself in a bad situation.
But living like God actually really loves me, means not holding back.
It means following my father’s lead and not being afraid because I KNOW that He LOVES ME and will get me to where I need to be.
I am tired of living as a laid back Christian.
We are called to be radical.
After all Jesus did just that and we are supposed to follow Him.
And to be radical we just need to live like we are loved!!!
