Are you willing to step out on faith for God?

Jesus knew that He was going to be crucified and bare the sins of the world so that He could be the ultimate sacrifice for you and me.  Knowing this He prayed:

“Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.”  Luke 22:42 (NIV)

The key was that He asked the Father if this could be done another way and would appreciate it but the most important thing is that “it not be my will but the Fathers will.”

Well, crying tears and asking God to help is really hard sometimes but looking up to the Father and saying you know best and whatever your will is what I will do.

Are you willing to step out in faith?  Can you accept the Fathers will in your life?  What do you need to do different to follow his will?

  1. Free fall for God. As if you are jumping out of a 2 story window knowing that there is a huge safety net waiting beneath you. Sometimes this is easier said than done but in my experience God never lets you down.

    One of my favorite phrases in his word is “test me in this”. So much of this life is about finances. He assures us in Malachi 3:10
    “….Test me in this and see if I don’t open up heaven itself to you and pour out blessings beyond your wildest dreams. For my part, I will defend you against marauders, protect your wheat fields and vegetable gardens against plunderers.”

    This has been verified to me recently in the fact that my old 1999 Windstar van, which was a monthly headache for the first few years we had it, is now just plugging along everyday and getting me down the road. It is not that beautiful electric blue Mustang GT of my dreams but it is there for me each morning when I start it up. I often think of it like a terminal cancer patient who just seems to keep on living, to everyones dismay. This old car should be dead but my loving God just keeps breathing life into it and that gives me the tool I need to help me as I do His work. PTL

    Isn’t life easier when we just let go and free fall into the will of God? Wow, thank you God that you love me so much and are concerned about all the little details of my existence. Thank you for using me in little ways to bring love and joy to peoples lives.
