“Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.” (Jeremiah 33:3, NKJV)
Too often, we settle for much less than what God wants to do through us. We read in Jeremiah 32:27, “Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for Me?” Of course the answer is no, yet when we face difficult situations we will confess we believe God but then we lower our expectations that God will really perform it. It is one thing to believe God could perform a miracle in the Bible or the life of a friend; it is quite another matter to wholeheartedly believe God can do anything He chooses to do in our lives.
When Almighty God speaks to us, what we do next proves what we believe about Him regardless of what we say. God revealed to Moses His plan, which was the greatest exodus in human history, and He planned to use Moses to accomplish it. Well, Moses argued with God, he made excuses to why he was not the right person. I am sure he believed intellectually in God’s power, but he did not allow it to drop into his heart or at least to the degree that God wanted. As a result of Moses’ argument with God, his ministry was limited, so God then raised Aaron up to help Moses accomplish what God intended for Moses to accomplish.
Do you sense there may be far more that God wants to do through your life than what you have been experiencing? Ask God to show you what it is and then respond in faith and obedience to His will.
