Is God asking too much of you?

waterfall-rainbow-600

“Do you feel like God is asking too much of you? As you scan the landscape of your present circumstances, is it hard to believe this is really what life has brought you to? Does God really expect something promising to come of what you’re dealing with, what you’re shackled with, what you’re stuck with? Could anything be more unwanted or undesirable to you right now? If He didn’t have so much meaning and potential and restoration to accomplish in the midst of it, you’re right—it would be a tragic mess. But with everything He wants to achieve through you in this vital yet difficult season, there’s another way to look at it. Consider it a privilege.”

Freely given to us by God

clouds-ocean

“The things that are “freely given to us by God” (1 Corinthians 2:12) are the only things we need to know now. A lot of the reason we grow so upset and disturbed about not hearing specifically from God is that we want what isn’t “freely given.” When we pray, “Lord, show me Your will,” we’re often asking for things that He knows are not pertinent for another twenty years. We want God to paint the whole picture right away, but He wisely withholds certain truths and information from us until we need it, when we can actually do something with it besides just mess it up.”
