Gracefully Overcoming

Living in the Confidence and Hope Found in Christ Alone!

Trusting My Training

I am learning to trust my training. Not in the way others might. Trusting God is the foundation. God equips us for the good work He wants us to do. Whenever God calls us , He will equip us. We don’t have to entertain those thoughts about if we should be doing something. If God has opened the door, He will carry us through the process of walking through the door in obedience… as long as we are willing to go.

Recently I have been editing and reviewing the contents of my study of John 14, I am learning that I have to trust my training. I have to trust God first and foremost. I have to continue to pray for wisdom. But, I have trust (as in not second guess) that I am qualified to do what God has called me to do. I have to trust in His timing as well… Though not often is it formal training, God will prepare us for every good work He has in store for us.

Questions to Consider:

  • Will we walk through the door in obedience, and God-confidence?
  • Will we continue to allow those thoughts to creep in or choose to apply 2 Corinthians 5:10 to our thought patterns.

2 Corinthians reminds us of what will help us in the long run: The Message describes this process as “tearing down barriers” (thoughts)… that are contrary God’s Word. We need to “[fit] every loose thought and emotion and impulse into the structure of life shaped by Christ.. “. Is my fear of failing contrary to what God teaches me in His Word and the Holy Spirit? Yes, most definitely.  A lot of our thought patterns need to be removed, as we (or myself) pursue a more spirit-filled lifestyle.

As I walk in obedience through composing this e-book, I have to trust God will be glorified and give me exactly what I need.
