IT STARTS WITH YOU

Exodus 3:7 - "And the Lord said: 'I have surely seen the oppression of my people who are in Egypt, and have heard their cry because of their taskmasters, for I know their sorrows.' " What's happening concerning His People? Exodus 3:14 - "And God said to Moses, "I AM WHO I AM." And He said, "Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, 'I AM has sent me to you.'"

Many people say today they believe in God, but few really know who He is. We do have a generation now that really does not know God ,nor do they fear Him. For those who want to step up, God will use. It takes commitment, but most of all faith. The question is, do you believe God is really God and are you willing to live like He wants you to? It takes faith to trust God and obey what He asks, and that's what is required of us. God has plans for every one of our lives, and we must by faith reach out and take hold of what God asks us to. Today each one of you has something in your possession that God wants to bring about change in your life and use for His greater purpose than your plans.

It's not always easy, but obedience is the only way to follow through with God's plans. You see, He's not really that interested in all of how we think things ought to be, for He knows exactly how they are supposed to be. He expects us to do what He asks, especially those who have committed their lives to Him. It's not easy for many Christians to remember God is holy and neither His character nor His word changes. But we must keep it that way regardless of how we see things ourselves. God understands our frustrations in this life, and He knows that we are human and humans make mistakes. God expects the world to act evil and be angry, but He expects His children to obey His word and act differently. God expects His people to be His people, and He can fix our mistakes, but remember He does so His way. He wants to do the same for you if you're willing to put the issues of your life in His hands. God will deal with those other people and areas concerning you. But it starts with you. Are you willing to do your part regardless of others?
