Be Strong and Do It

“Consider now, for the Lord has chosen you to build a house for the sanctuary; be strong, and do it.”  1 Chronicles 28:10

In Matthew 22, Jesus tells a parable about a king who was putting on a wedding.  He sent his servants out to invite the guests, but the guests answered that they could not come because they had too many other responsibilities with their farms and businesses. I so often find myself feeling the same thing as I sense God’s call to His assignments for my life. There are so many things that compete for our attention, and we can feel justified in ignoring what God is asking us to do… we are just too busy.

Sometimes we aren’t even aware that God is asking us to do something, so it just gets completely missed. There are other times when we hear His direction, mull it over and consider it, but for reasons like “just too busy” or “just too scary,” we let it go and do not follow through. Then there are those times when we hear, obey, and enjoy a supernatural encounter with Him, as we see Him do something wonderful in response to our obedience.

When God gives us an assignment it comes complete with the promise of provision, including everything we will need to complete the task. He says, “Be strong and do it!” What is God asking of you? Trust Him to make a way in the midst of the business of life and lead you on to a great success!

For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.
2 Chronicles 16:9
