Following God

follow

Let’s face it…following God isn’t always the easiest thing. It’s not so much that it’s hard to go where He’s asking as much as it is difficult to navigate the path through the muck and mire of life. God says; “I need you over here” and we say; “sure…after I fix this failure, right that wrong and repair what I’ve broken.”

This is where the incredible graciousness of God comes in. I will never cease to be amazed how God not only calls us, but also helps us navigate through the junk in our lives so we can accomplish His purposes. God has a plan and His plan is going to play out. He will never let our shortcomings get in the way of His purpose.

It’s hard to fathom this from a human perspective isn’t it? After all, don’t we find it hard to let go of  how we’ve been wronged? Don’t we find it difficult to move on after a hurt? Fortunately, God handles it differently. Even though we wrong Him every day…He still uses us. Even though we fall short of His glory consistently…He still loves us…and even though we have failed Him over and over again…He still calls us.

Following God is challenging because He is perfect and we are not. Thankfully, it’s through His perfection that our imperfections are no longer obstacles to following His leading.
