And the Lord Will Take You As Far As You Are Willing To Go.
Joshua 1:1 After the death of Moses the servant of the Lord, it came to pass that theLord spoke to Joshua the son of Nun, Moses’ assistant, saying: 2 “Moses My servant is dead. Now therefore, arise, go over this Jordan, you and all this people, to the land which I am giving to them—the children of Israel. 3 Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given you, as I said to Moses. 4 From the wilderness and this Lebanon as far as the great river, the River Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and to the Great Sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your territory. 5 No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life; as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you nor forsake you. 6 Be strong and of good courage, for to this people you shall divide as an inheritance the land which I swore to their fathers to give them. 7 Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go. 8 This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. 9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
There is no limit to the things you can do in God. There is nobody you can stop you from doing great things….except you. God will accept whatever you choose to give him, he is not looking for your ability, merely your availability…and if you are willing to let God use you greatly He will. Now his idea of great and ours might be completely different, but what Christian doesn’t want to be used in the best way to make the most impact on the kingdom. Whatever role God gives you, your willingness will take it to its extreme. It was Joshua’s willingness to do the things of God that took him from the mud pits of egypt to the conqueror of the Holy Land. Each time he was given an opportunity to excel, he did, even when others around him paled and ran.
Now God knows what you are capable of, and what you are willing to do, and he won’t ask more of you than that. But if you want to make an impact for the Lord, then gird up those loins and “Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
