Just do it … Sometimes God asks us to do something we would humanly rather not do. Our first instinct is “no way – that’s not fair.” But the fact remains that He asked. He will never force us to do anything we do not want to do but He will give opportunities to “put our money where our mouth is” (so to speak).
If we claim to be led by the Spirit, God will test us to see if we really will respond to His Spirit at work in our lives. There is a blessing that comes with added years and that is experience. Previous experiences have taught me that resisting the call of God through His Spirit does not bring peace in my life. When I know to do good and do not do it, I lose my joy.
So now, a bit wiser, I try to listen more carefully to the proddings of the Spirit and respond more positively and quickly to God’s requests and then enjoy the blessings of peace and joy that follow.
Blessings on your walk, Ann
