time to strive

The Chase (tryptich)

Several messages in the past month said things would not happen by me “striving.” Opposite what you hear from our normal culture. Another reason spiritual brain storming got on my To Do list.

Thinking of the snow travel I thought was lunacy. Not everything God asks us to do are things we like or feel capable of but our obedience is giant. Like Abraham, what logic said was crazy happened with faith.

Answer this question: Does the God who lavishly provides you with his own presence, his Holy Spirit, working things in your lives you could never do for yourselves, does he do these things because of your strenuous moral striving or because you trust him to do them in you? Don’t these things happen among you just as they happened with Abraham? He believed God, and that act of belief was turned into a life that was right with God. Galations 3:5
