Welcome again to this week's word for the week. So many times we talk about the many things God wants to do for us. We talk about how much we're ready to see what He has in store and how much we look forward to those things with great anticipation. We name it, we claim it, and we speak it out in the atmosphere. There's one question that needs to be asked this week. Do you do your part as far as the promise is concerned?
This won't be long but it's some good food for thought. You can't take a trip unless you make preparations to do so. You can't go grocery shopping until you at least know what you need before you go. If you are planning on attending a major event you would plan out your outfit beforehand. In other words, in many things that you do in life you do it with proper planning. Hopefully. When God has plans for us there is a real chance that there is a part we must do also. The question is are you aware of what your part is?
We wait sometimes for God when God is waiting for us. We say what He's going to do but we fail to do our part. Let's be honest here. Oftentimes, we simply need to change in order to see His glory. Change is not always something drastic. It can be something so simple such as having a willingness for His will. Sometimes, He just wants us to pray. Other times He may want us to take one step while He takes the other nine steps. The question doesn't change though. Are you prepared to do your part?
You already know what it is you want God to do. You know how long you've been waiting. But do you know your part? Moses part in crossing the Red Sea was to stretch out the rod in his hand. Elijah's part during the contest on the mountain was just to have faith. David's part in defeating Goliath was just to trust God. These parts sound simple but they played a major part in the outcome of their needs. My point to you this week is that it is the small things that will play a major part in your outcome. You need to know your part though. You cannot afford to say your in expectation but not know what your part is in seeing it happen. Get before God this week and find out what you need to do so that you may see what you've been waiting for.
May the Lord continue to bless and keep you in His grace,
Bishop Carlos J. Lennon
