A thought by Erwin Raphael McManus, (2014-02-25) from his book, The Artisan Soul: Crafting Your Life into a Work of Art (p. 130). HarperCollins. Kindle Edition.
It is so easy to leave the fulfillment of a God-given task to God to do through us. I mean if He wants it then He will do it. But the truth is He has given us the dream, the call, the potential and then expects us to ask for strength and courage and then to go do it.
Erwin says, “It is not incidental that when David calls Solomon to build the temple, he says to his son, ‘Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you until all the work for the service of the temple of the Lord is finished.’” [1 Chronicles 28: 20 NIV)].
What potential, call, opportunity or dream is God waiting on you to set out to do? He believes in you and He knows how hard it will be for you to do. But He will give you strength and courage to do it if you ask and then set out to do it.
So when are you going to start?
