Are You Sure You Want Me To Do This Lord

The thing about God that can be entirely frustrating is he asks us to do things without letting us see what the end result is.

Blind faith

He did this to David when he told him to go kill Goliath

If David knew he was going to kill Goliath with the first stone he would have never picked up 5

God did this to Esther

And Moses

He did this to Abraham

And Noah

He did it to me

And he is doing it to you

On and on he has asks his people to do things just because they trust Him

Trusting that He knows what the future holds

Look at even Gideon

Think of how foolish he must have felt weeding down his army to practically nothing

Yet God said do this so he

Did it

God is calling us to obey him because we trust him

We trust that he is faithful to complete what he has started.


This morning as I finished writing this post I flipped open the Bible intending to find Proverbs 3:5,6 but as I grabbled my Bible it flipped open to Chronicles 20 and I had several verses highlighted! These are the verses I had underlined. Oh how I love God’s Word! Love how sometimes God speaks to me when I grab it and flip it open. Not very spiritually fancy but that doesn’t matter does it!

I Chronicles 20

The Story of Jehoshaphat defeating Moab and Ammon

Verse 15b This is what the Lord says to you: ‘Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s.

Verse 17 You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions, stand firm and see the deliverance the Lord will give you, Oh Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them tomorrow, and the Lord will be with you.

Verse 20b Have faith in the Lord your God and you will be upheld: have faith in his prophets and you will be successful.

Verse 21b Give thanks to the Lord for his love endures forever.


I am praying for all of you my dear friends! Skyler is yelling out Mama, Mama, Mama, so I have to go! If God is telling you to fight and stand then that is what you have to do! You have to fight and you have to stand!

Love you in God’s way!
