Going for It

by | Oct 18, 2014 | God Is In Control, Gods Time

“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” (Deuteronomy 31:6)

Shoot the Falls! The cry of the brave ones up at the top of the waterfall. They were going for it. Kayaks were poised in position to ride the rapids. It looked intimidating to me, but cool. I thought about how it’s probably like most projects we think about taking on; you’d ponder plans to ‘how to’ go about it. You might think to (1) Prepare ahead of time. Noah didn’t build the ark overnight. (2) Wait for the right conditions. GOD opens the door; His timing is perfect – never too late, never too early, but right on time. (3) Have back-up/support – prayers, and scripture that line up in agreement with actions.

Then you would (4)Be confident, knowing God has gone before you. It is He who actually puts the desire in you, as well as helps you to accomplish it. Phil. 2:13 it is God who works in you, (both) to will and to act according to his good purpose.

And you’d (5)Go for it! God will have been with you, IS with you, will be with you.

So today if you’ve had an idea, a dream, a thought, or a plan that’s been swimming around in your head for awhile, perhaps you might start baby-stepping into it.

Whatever “it” is … prepare, wait on God’s timing, have support, be confident, and go for it.
