It is so common in life for us to think that we must reach a certain level of perfection before we can progress forward. Before we can advance toward our goals, we want to have all our ducks in a row, and dot every “i” and cross every “t.” Yet God is encouraging us to go into our community and make an effort now. Too often, we don’t pray with people who are hurting. Our first thought is, “Oh, they will not want that.” We fail to meet people and engage them in conversation. We don’t look for a new church. We won’t read a new book. We don’t do the things we need to do to become who we’re called to be. And that’s all God is asking us to do. The aforementioned are examples of God’s little book of instructions for us. Our failure to act will prevent us from becoming the person we should be.
If you comply with God’s requests, you will be amazed at how your life will change. Can I tell you something? Obedience is enough for God. The life of faith or having a great life for God isn’t really about taking huge leaps, as we often think. It is not about taking large steps either — it’s about walking. Following Christ involves taking a step. The thing is, you don’t just take one step, you have to take several steps, right? And that’s ok.
Friend, what’s interesting is that when you do a lot of little things in your life and make mistakes over and over, it actually ends up being the catalyst for great things you’ll accomplish in your life in the long run. God loves when we hear him and choose to take steps of action!
