“Your job is simply to be obedient to God. He will handle everything else.” –Lysa Terkuerst
There are so many examples given to us in Scripture that support this statement:
Abraham was told to leave his people, but he was not given a destination.
Moses was instructed to go to Pharoah and tell him to let the Israelites go, but it was not to be done in his own power or ability.
Joshua was told to march around a fortified city for seven days and trust that God would give him the victory.
Even Mary, the mother of Jesus, was given the task of birthing and raising Jesus without knowing what her society in that culture would do to her.
Even with so many examples, we find it so hard not to plan out how everything in our lives is supposed to go. Sometimes, our job is simply to show up. God will do the work. Do you trust Him enough to let go?
