Being a believer by no means is easy, sometimes it is difficult and even painful. There are times when He calls us to follow Him and ask us to do something we don’t want to do, places we don’t want to go. The question is not whether those times will come but will we be ready to obey when the times do come.
After Paul visited Ephesus and Macedonia, the apostle prompted by the Spirit to go Jerusalem. The Spirit warned him, however; if he went there, he’d be arrested. His friends begged him not to go and put himself in a unpleasant situation. But Paul answered: “What are you doing, weeping and breaking my heart? For I am ready not only to be imprisoned but even die in Jerusalem for the name of Lord Jesus.” (Acts 21:13)
I want you to hear this, for you – to become the people that we were created to become and to become the world needs us to become – we must act with the same boldness, courage and confidence. Apostle Paul was
bold and confident because he trusted two truths: God is in charge and God is good. These truths allow us, like Paul, to believe deep in our hearts that God’s prompting is ultimately good for us and His Kingdom.
My prayer is that these will be your proudest moments because you have say ‘yes’ to Him.
