WEDNESDAY IN THE WORD-Putting Limits On God.

Why do we put limits on what God can do through us?
As I was watching the episode of the Bible last night I could not shake the thoughts of how Moses allowed God to use Him in such profound ways. I know the story...I've read it, studied it and hace taught it. But it became alive all of a sudden. WHY? Because Moses was obedient and had faith that the God He served was real and that He would supply for whatever needs that Moses had. All Moses had to do was TRUST HIM. Moses also knew by the past faithfulness of God that He would not let him down. God's faithfulness is tried and true for us...so why do we doubt?



With me it seems that I start out good with having "Faith" that Christ will supply what is needed to bring Glory to Him. The next thing I know I've allowed Satan to sneak in and place doubts in my mind. Sometimes even well meaning Christians can be a hinderance to our faith if we are not soley standing on His promises. And to be totally honest there has been times I've tried to do things on my on and not rely on Christ to do it through me.

The truth is we can't accomplish what is set out before us...in and of ourselves.  When I do things in my own strength I always set myself up for failure. But everytime I have let go of the reigns of control and trust God at a deeper level not only does He do amazing things but I learn even more about myself!

May I be like Moses and not doubt God. May I be one that totally steps out of the scene so God can do His Stuff through me! May we all strive to TRUST God more and be OBEDIENT.



"Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him". Psalm 37:5

That is the key! Committing our WAY to the Lord! Then Trusting Him to do ONLY as He can do!
