Listen....I am not judging. If this post is making you feel some kind of way, it's okay. I'm trying to help you out. You see, for a long time, I would work hard seeking the approval of others. It went like this…God would give me instructions, and I would turn around and share them with someone else seeking support and a confirmation from them, when I had already received the only confirmation I needed which was that of God.
How many people do you think are waiting? Waiting on God to send two rainbows, five butterflies and three Amens? Others are waiting for the clouds to part an audible voice from the heavens saying, “walk this way my child”. Let me tell you something, while God can do all of this and then some, the reality is He doesn't have to.
He is God all by Himself. He doesn’t have to repeat Himself and He surely doesn't NEED a confirmation from man.
If He has given you instructions to do something (i.e. get out of that toxic relationship, start that business, write that book, finish that project, etc.) you need to do it. PERIOD. Don't allow procrastination to hold you back any longer.
I know, it may be a little scary or perhaps you feel ill equipped. No matter what the circumstances are, if you know in your heart that you have heard from God, you better get to moving. Simply take the first step. That's all He requires. You don't have to have ALL the answers at this point. You simply have to have the confidence and courage to step out on faith and follow where He leads.
My question for you today is what have you placed on the shelf or avoided doing because you were waiting on "confirmation"? Well it's time to do it. Consider this your confirmation.
