Grab a Pencil, and be Lead.

My pastor was talking about something Sunday that I wish the whole world could of heard.

If I would of had an extra megaphone lying around I would of handed it to him.

Yes, it was that good.

How many times have we heard someone say, (or maybe said it ourselves..) that they need to “pray about something” or…”need to make sure I am led”.

The following is not meant to discredit hearing from God, or being sensitive to His obvious “yes” or “no”s.  This is just to remember that He has already given us a big fat “YES” in His word.

He said…

Feed the hungry. Pray for the sick. Be friend the widow. Help the orphan. Forgive your mother. Give your coat. Give money to the poor. Make disciples. Share His message, Proclaim, Baptize,  Cleanse lepers, Cast out demons. Welcome strangers. Visit prisoners.

He said to go.

So why do we not run with the green light that we have…and wait till He tells us no? Instead of waiting for Him to repeat what He has already said?

Do you think God will be upset if you sponsor a child from this organization instead of that one? Do you think He will curse you if you help a ministry or start one, without hearing an angel from heaven blow a trumpet?

We are afraid, so we act like He didn’t speak. But He did. We will be held accountable to that.

God will direct us  with specifics….when we start moving. We just need to be moving. It does not mean that you need to be apart of EVERYTHING. But it means you need to be apart of something. You need to be doing something.

You have your yes. You have your green light. You are led. Its called the Bible. And He says

“Go for it.”
