I’m Not the One You’re Looking For

I can’t be the leader you’re seeking. I’m a grown man, coming up on 20 years of following Jesus. Yet still, I struggle with lust, fear, greed, and doubt. To name a few. Still every time my face is in the dirt I see Jesus right there with a towel. “Come on you’re more than this. Watch this dirt wash away, but you have to get up. Keep walking. My promises are true. My plans surpass your understanding, stop trying to figure it out. Stop trying to be something in a world that fades. Be who I’ve called you to be in my kingdom. Let her go, let the things go, let it all go. Hold fast to me. I control the unseen forces of nature. Who can stop the wind? Who can bring low the tide? Who can keep the earth from shaking? What is keeping you from who I’ve called you to be? My greatest forces are unseen, you bet I can you from obscurity. You have yet to imagine the deeds I have planned for you to do. But you have to walk in them. Its never to late, my call never goes out of date. You’re not called to tasks to be done but to be the person you were created to be. Dream it up and go after it. What would you do with endless resources? How will you impact the kingdom with the identity I have given you? My promises don’t expire, they are only fulfilled. Stop rejecting them to hold on to what you think is good. The time is and will only ever be now. This truth I tell you, you neither be a giver or a receiver with your hands in your pockets. Open your arms to the need and I’ll open the heavens to yours.”

Ephesians 2:8-10, Proverbs 16:1-9, John 13:1-17

How often do we have this conversation? “What me God???” And his response is a simple “yeah I believe in you”. Come on now fellow believer you have what it takes. You’re strong and powerful. You’ve yet to realize what’s in you. Heaven come to pour out the power of your presence on us. We can’t without you. Our dreams are a lost cause without the presence of God. Then WHY do we neglect it? For Netflix? I little “freedom” to do what flesh wants? Frankly, I can’t take it anymore. There’s so much more that has yet to be tapped. Can we put aside the temporary for the eternal? Come on mighty warriors the harvest is out there, let’s go fight for it. (in the least striving way possible)
