God’s Word: Romans 4:1-25
God’s Message to me: (My interpretation of what God is saying in these verses)
Every day of your life you face turning points. Unless you put on your “faith goggles” they pass you by. You put them on by looking to My Word for wisdom and guidance then acting on what you believe I am calling you to do. Abraham of old set the example for wearing “faith goggles.” Sometimes they slipped down on his nose and he faltered but he got them back in place and believed Me for the impossible and I did not fail him. I will not fail you either—but first you must don the “faith goggles” and take the plunge!
“If you are a hard worker and do a good job, you deserve your pay; we don’t call your wages a gift. But if you see a job that is too big for you, that it’s something only God can do, and you trust Him to do it—you could never do it for yourself no matter how hard and long you worked—well, that trusting-Him-to-do-it is what gets you set right with God, by God. Sheer gift!”
What is stopping you from taking the plunge? I planted those seeds of passion and desires and abilities within. You know what they are but keep holding back because you think it is too big for you to attempt. You falter in lack of faith. Look to My Word for My promises and then put on My “faith goggles” and just take the plunge because I will be with you. That does not mean everything you put your hand to will be a smashing success. Not so, because you will often falter along the way. Don’t allow a temporary disappointment to get you off track. Each derailment is an opportunity to learn something new and adjust your “goggles” and dive back in.
God’s Question: Do you not realize that I want the best for you?
God’s Promise: I will never leave you nor forsake you.
My Prayer to God:
I Praise You for Your Word of truth and promise.
I am Sorry I don’t take the plunge more completely.
Thank You for reminding me You are always there.
Please Help Me plunge into what most honors You.
