When you consider the extraordinary ways God worked through men such as Moses and Paul, you may think, “I can’t measure up to people like them. I don’t have what they have.”
But you must realize that these “heroes” of the faith were just common, ordinary people. It was their obedience – their complete yieldedness to God – that gave them uncommon strength and faith. They submitted their lives to God, which freed God to work through them.
I don’t know about you, but their examples inspire me to re-evaluate my own obedience. Am I reluctant to listed to God because I think He is asking the impossible? Am I failing to make myself available to Him because I’m doubtful or afraid? Your part is to simply obey, and God will do His part.
A Prayer to Pray:
God, I see now that You can do anything through me if I will simply yield myself to You. Help me to make myself more available to You today. Amen
