What Stops You From Going All Out For God? Dear friend, I praise the Lord for a brand new day today, I woke up this morning and as usual I did take some time to ponder on certain issues that have been been troubling me in my ministry and my quest to press forward, right in the middle of my deep thought, the Spirit of God asked me this question with this gentle and quiet voice. . . "What Stops You From Going All Out For God?" I was startled ! the question came at a time, I was considering taking a step further in my ministry and for Channel Of Healing and I thought about all the procedures/processes I would have to face in my quest to move forward. . . that made me little afraid and I was thinking to myself . . . What if this ,what if that . . . in the course of my head almost exploding with all the fears and questions I had inside, which was been repeated consciously and unconsciously in my mind . . .then the Voice says to me again "What Stops You From Going All Out For God?"
I knew the answer was rooted to the devil but the devil did not appear in my room to discourage me but, he used my mind and emotions and filled me with doubts/ fears with stuff like, will it succeed? Did God ask you to do that? Is God even interested in what you do?, Can't you just continue the way you are? who told you God cares about this part of your life? Must you change it and improve it? etc, right there as I was laying in bed , I was taken to that scripture in the Bible in Matthew 26:6-11
Jesus Anointed at Bethany6While Jesus was in Bethany in the home of a man known as Simon the Leper, 7a woman came to him with an alabaster jar of very expensive perfume, which she poured on his head as he was reclining at the table.
8When the disciples saw this, they were indignant. "Why this waste?" they asked. 9"This perfume could have been sold at a high price and the money given to the poor."
10Aware of this, Jesus said to them, "Why are you bothering this woman? She has done a beautiful thing to me. 11The poor you will always have with you, but you will not always have me.
The point of this passage in relation to what I was going through at the time was that Satan was trying to make me not to take a step of faith in my ministry. In the passage the disciples looked at what the woman was doing and thought it a waste . They even wanted to be more righteous than the Lord Himself, but the Lord rewarded the woman for her faithfulness to Him even as she went all out for Him . . . Praise the Lord
I now asked myself, Will God stop me from going all out for Him? my answer was definitely NO!
Therefore I encourage you today to go all out for the Lord, incase you are like me scared stiff, ask yourself "What Stops me From Going All Out For God?" and throw it away, is it fear, finance, family, issues of life? what ever it is, God is asking you to go all out for Him today
When Next you are planning on doing something or taking a step of faith no matter how difficult. Remember the more you delay or even contemplate further whether to obey the Lord you are opening doors for discouragement to come in. the devil will send his little demons to each ear and keep bombarding you with the endless problems you would face should you go all out for God. For those of us who have already taken a step of faith in ministry I congratulate an Pray that may our God richly reward all your efforts with success in Jesus Mighty Name Amen. . . THANK YOU HOLY SPIRIT!!!
