So what if we have managed to do what Proverbs 3:5-6 says and get God’s directions and think… “what the what?!”
Sometimes we get so upset, confused, and fearful about moves because we don’t understand what God is doing; and many of the things we feel led to do make absolutely no sense. But God has it under control. Think about Noah, he was told to build a big ole boat, get all the animals on it in an orderly fashion, AND none of his homies could go, just his immediate family…really? Makes no earthly sense. (Genesis 6-8; Hebrews 11:7). But because of this he became the second father of the human race and we received a promise that the earth would never be destroyed in that manner again. (Genesis 9:8-16)
What about Gideon’s great leadership task? He was told to save Israel out of the oppressively powerful hand of the Midianites with only 300 men…really? Makes no earthly sense. (Judges 6-7; Hebrews 11:32) But God brought those
300 men to a victory freeing them from the hand of the enemy.
What about Abraham who God told to sacrifice the son he waited 100 years for and loved so much…really? Makes no earthly sense. (Genesis 22:1-19; Hebrews 11:17) But because of this God promised to bless him and make his descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky with the ability to take possession of enemy gates AND through his offspring, all nations on earth [WE] would be blessed! (Genesis 22: 17-18)
What do these three have in common?
1) They all made it into faith’s hall of fame (Hebrews 11).
2) During times when things made no earthly sense they were obedient and created great change for their generation and their descendants!
With great change comes the need for great faith. Is He leading you to do something that has you saying really God? That makes no sense! Can you trust God to make changes in you that have the possibility to save nations?! The crazier it sounds the greater the blessing will be. It’s bigger than your right now! Step out even if it makes no earthly sense.
