Daily Devotional – 9/23/13 “Have you ever?”

Have you ever wondered why a woman pats her head when it itches instead of just scratching it? Have you ever wondered what a baby is really thinking when you’re all in their face making those crazy sounds? Have you ever wondered why your eyes close when you sneeze or why women hold their mouth open when putting on mascara? Do you? Well, I would assume God has to sometimes wonder about some of the things we do. You know like pray for Him to do something and then worry about it or how we get blessed with something and then take it for granted or even how we ask for this and then act like He won’t do it. I mean, have you ever thought about it? Have you ever thought about how God feels when we doubt His power, second guess His decision or run from His answer? Have you ever?

Yea, you worry all through worship, pace when you should praise, sin when you should be sleep, raise hell when you really should be helping, spoil your spirituality when you settle for stuff, harbor hate when you should be healing your heart and mess around in mess when you should be making the most of God’s mercy. Have you ever stopped to think about how God feels when you don’t trust Him? Have you ever taken a moment to believe that God will do exactly what He promises? Have you never opened your bible, studied for yourself or taken God at His word? For Matthew 7:7 says, “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.”

Have you ever thought about how greater you can be if you stop giving up so easily on your ability to do things? If you don’t think you’re capable of doing it, why would God bless you with it? Stop allowing doubt and fear to rob you of what God has promised. Yea, you might fall and you might even fail but afterwards get up and try again. Stop worrying about tomorrow, when it is not even here yet. Stop worrying about the “ifs” because if God is for you who can be against you (Romans 8:31)? Oh but then Romans 8:32 says, “Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything else?” Stop and take time to enjoy this moment because the next one is not promised. Stop stressing and start saying, “I am more than a conqueror.” Stop concerning yourself with things you can’t control and start calling on God, He’ll always answer. Stop being anxious and start accepting the anointing that has been appointed over you. Stop running and realize your potential. Stop hiding and hear God’s voice. Oh, have you ever?
