Weighting on God

You feel the nudge, the call on your life. It seems impossible to do. You’re not sure where to begin. You see others struggling, passing before you, following what God has placed before them. You convince yourself that you cannot carry the load. Surely there must be someone more qualified to carry out God’s will. Yet you cannot shake the prodding deep inside you to give your all to God; to help him carry some of the load of bringing salvation to others.

As they were coming out, they found a man of Cyrene named Simon, whom they pressed into service to bear His cross. – Matthew 27:32 (NASB)

Whoever does not carry his own cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple. – Luke 14:27

  1. Powerful and to the point, as always, CG. “The Ten Commandments” movie was on last night—the one with Charleston Heston as Moses. He kept telling others, and God, I’m not the man for the job. Finally, he realizes he is.

    1. That such a classic movie. We think we can’t do something God calls us to, but then with God we accomplish epic things. I can think of many times in my life where God did things I thought were impossible — almost like parting the Red Sea to make a way forward. Thanks for the comment and have a blessed Easter.
