Be what you are called to be

Matthew 27:3 Then Judas, His betrayer, seeing that He had been condemned, was remorseful and brought back the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders.

This popular passage speaks about Judas betrayal of Jesus, and how he became remorseful then later hung himself. In spite of all of this, do you think Jesus knew that Judas was going to betray Him? Of course! Jesus knew all things.

Do you know that Jesus assigns us tasks or jobs, knowing that we will fail? Why is this? you may ask. It is so that we mature and stretch. The Lord does this on purpose, its the only way we will learn and grow.

Just because we fail at a job or task does not mean we are not able to carry it out. Picture a gym, and when you go the first time you come out exhausted. But as you keep going and working out, what you did a few months ago which was so difficult is now easy.

That is how it is with the Lord. In order for us to do the big things, we must first start with the small things, and work our way up. Along the way we will fail and make mistakes, but all of that is very necessary to attain our goal.

Once we acheive that goal, and we can do two things. We can say we have arrived and settle in, or we can push for more.

Personally, I prefer to push for more, knowing that mistakes and failures will come, but I also know that as I continue, I will reach the next goal.

Are you finding yourself failing every step of the way? Rejoice, God is working on your "spiritual muscles" so to speak. The Lord wants you to achieve your goal. But dont feel too comfortable there, reach for that next goal.
