Exodus 4:21

There is this perception that if God calls you to do something that He will clear the way for you. That it will basically fall down in your lap with little to no effort on your part. God's doing the work and you reap the benefits. That's not always the case, though. In fact, I bet it's actually seldom the case. Just because God ordains something, that doesn't mean that it's going to be easy, or quick, or fun. Moses was going to get God's people out of Egypt, but nobody was going to like him or trust him. Not pharoah. Not the Israelites. Probably at times not even his brother or even himself. But God ordained it. So he pressed on. It's tempting to quit. To get frustrated and drop out. If God has ordained it, then he will see it through fruition. And nothing will stop it. God help me to have the strength to press on in the projects you have ordained for me and to abandon those you haven't.
