Get Up and Go!

It is foolish to think “If God wants to make it happen He will”. I am not saying that God cannot make anything happen if He wills it to be. I just desire to listen when He tells me what to do. God wants to have us be a part of His will. Christ said to follow after Him. It’s not about just sitting and praying and expecting things to happen. I mean it’s great to take time and pray and wait. But when God tells you to do something, then you should do it. Think of Jonah. Being a Christian is not about being perfect. It’s about reaching towards Perfection, Christ Jesus, and seeking after Perfection. It’s not about you or me. It is not anything that we have done. Shall we boast in our ignorance? My confidence is not in Man, but the creator. If you look at the world and nature you can see how things point towards God. How can all of this be from a random event? Pay careful attention, then, to how you walk—not as unwise people but as wise— 16 making the most of the time, because the days are evil. 17 So don’t be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is. 18 And don’t get drunk with wine, which ⌊leads to⌋ reckless actions, but be filled by the Spirit: 19 speaking to one another in psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, singing and making music from your heart to the Lord, 20 giving thanks always for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, 21 submitting to one another in the fear of Christ. Eph 5:15-21 (HCSB)
