Sing to the LORD, for he has done glorious things; let this be known to all the world. (Isaiah 12:5)
A very special friend of mine is celebrating his birthday today, and this post, written well in advance, is to honor him. Have you ever met someone who can relate so closely to a challenge that you’ve walked through that you just thank God for sending that person to you at that very moment? He’s that guy…and we had a Divine Appointment that carried me through the most difficult and dark time of my life. He’s pretty great…
Difficulties and obstacles are challenge our faith. But they are our lesson plan. In these darkest and challenging times we will glean insight, perspective, and a chance to draw near to God and lean on our faith like never before. These crisis points become the platform of our mission- they are the gems in our crown.
God has a plan for our lives- it’s all mapped out. Our only responsibility is to say yes to His call and to remain obedient to His plan, regardless of where that takes us- even if it is to our own personal Ninevah (click here to read more about how to recognize your own Ninevah). He equips us with exactly what we need to honor our calling. He goes with us. Our job is simply to say “yes, God”.
I’m sharing the song “Flawless” by MercyMe today, in honor of the birthday guy, because when I hear this song he always comes to mind (click here to listen).
