The Lord honors me with strength for the commission. Isn't it beautiful? He made my frame - but He still created me to need Him to fulfill His call. Through Him all things are possible, so I never need to say no if I am yielded to Him in all areas.
I think about Peter walking on water.
Matthew 14:28-29 NKJV
""And Peter answered Him and said, “Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.” So He said, “Come.” And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus."
If the Lord tells me to do it, He also empowers me to follow the command. He made me, gave me the only purpose that will bring satisfaction to my soul, and gives me the strength to do it!
"God put me to work from the day I was born.
The moment I entered the world he named me.
He gave me speech that would cut and penetrate.
He kept his hand on me to protect me.
He made me his straight arrow
and hid me in his quiver.
He said to me, “You’re my dear servant,
Israel, through whom I’ll shine.”
Isaiah 49:1b-3 MSG
