Don’t hold back – MOVE!

In Psalm 74 we read how destruction came to Israel. God appeared to be doing nothing to stop the onslaught.
The Psalmist writes in Psalm 74:11 ‘Why do You hold back Your hand, Your right hand? Take it from the folds of Your garment and destroy them!’
God, of course, had not dropped them. But this scripture is a picture of how we can sometimes live. We hold back, we keep things hidden in the folds of our lives. Instead of acting on what God is telling us to do, we hold back, we hide our potential or we don’t do anything.
It is time to stop holding back, it is time to step out, and it is time to move forward.
You may say: ‘I have no confidence!’ Have God-confidence and forget about yourself.
You may say: ‘You don’t know what I have been through!’ That’s fine, God uses bruised reeds and He breathes His strength into them.
You may say: ‘I am nothing!’ I declare that you are fit for God to use. The Apostle Paul wrote the following words: ‘For when I am weak, then I am strong!’ (2 Corinthians 12:10)
