This week has been a whirlwind, and I have not had much time to think. I thought I would share some of my husband’s thoughts from a Wednesday night message he gave. Since it is January, he gave a challenge called:
What type of person should I be this year?
Do you ever wonder how you should change year to year? Or what your goals should be? Or what you should do?
He shared some questions that we all can consider:
What type of work should I do this year?
We should do like Mary said to those serving at the wedding of Cana, “Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.” (John 2:5) We need to be willing to obey God in whatever He calls us to do.
How do I know what to do? We might be willing, but how do we know what He is calling us to do?
Psalm 119:130 tells us “The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.” If we need direction, we need to get into God’s Word.
How will I have the power to do what I need to do?
Zechariah 4:6 says that we do not have the power to do what God wants us to do, but his Spirit can give us the power we need. “Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.”
But what about if I don’t think I have the ability to do what God is calling me to do?
Philippians 4:13 says, “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” Believe He is able — because we are not! When we are weak, then He is strong. “And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” 2 Corinthians 12:9
Next week, I’ll finish the rest of the challenge my husband shared. Let’s go out this week and do what God would have us to do in His power and enabling!
