This quote has been rolling around my head today.
The truth is, God has picked us. “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” (Ephesians 2:10).
But we have a job here...to walk in them. God’s work is done. Now it is our turn.
Too often we wait for other people to do what is our job to do. We wait for people to notice us, select us, pick us, while we sit back anxious in the waiting, wondering why nothing is happening.
We need to be brave enough to pick ourselves. To recognize we are created for such a time as this, and these dreams we have were prepared for us beforehand.
What have you been waiting on someone else to initiate on your behalf that God may be waiting on YOU to initiate?
God, give us faith and courage to pick ourselves and jump into the works already prepared for us by You.
