Arguing with God
Up To Know Good on Monday
June 12, 2006
When I first thought about creating these daily messages, I was overwhelmed. I sat on my couch one evening and told God, I cant do this. How will I ever be able to do everything I ask my readers to do? Im totally unqualified. In my spirit I heard Gods response to me: Sara, I only have imperfect people to work with. Youre all Ive got, or Id use someone else! Will you do it? How could I say no to that?!
Do Good - Examine your soul today and ask honestly - Has God called me to do something I feel unqualified to accomplish? If so, dont put it off any longer! Surrender your insecurities and answer Gods call today.
Naively I thought that was the end of my discussion with God. It was really just the beginning as I started to write and write and write! Sometimes as I work, I get distracted by doubt. As soon as I become aware of my negative thoughts, I remind myself of Gods call and keep writing - imperfect as I may be!
But Moses said to God, Who am I, that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt? And God said, I will be with you, Exodus 3:12. Read Gods conversation with Moses in Exodus 3:1-12.
God, Im glad You can see that my arguments come from my own insecurity. Thanks for calling me to be a part of Your work in the world.
Know Good. Do Good. Feel Good.
I pray that you have a great day as you experience and express God's love in fresh, real ways!
